NASHVILLE, TN - (Marketwired - Apr 8, 2013) - Chem-Dry, the world's largest carpet and overall floor cleaning franchise, is expanding its global footprint in 2013 as it seeks business partners to help lead its growth into new global markets.
Ask Loren Mitchell. When Chem-Dry began its international growth in 1986, Loren was 17. His father, Bruce, brought the brand to Australia. Twenty-seven years later there are 170 Chem-Dry franchises operating in Australia -- and Mitchell has grown from being a technician to becoming the master franchise operator for the country.
"The processes Chem-Dry has developed are vastly superior to what others can offer, and they have always been fair and helpful," he said. "We wouldn't have been around so long with one company if it hadn't been a great relationship."
Chem-Dry has worked hard to cultivate strong relationships and successful, long-term partnerships with its international master franchisees. That is one reason why the company has been recognized in Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500 list of outstanding companies and rated the leading global franchise in its category for 25 years in a row. Chem-Dry's deeper-cleaning hot carbonating extraction method uses 80% less water than steam cleaning, and its primary cleaning solution, The Natural®, is green-certified and does not contain phosphates or detergents, making it safe and non-toxic for kids and pets.
Chem-Dry is seeking master franchise partners to grow the brand in new markets including France, the Philippines, Turkey, Germany, India, Spain, Brazil and Chile.

Master franchise partners own the rights to the Chem-Dry brand within their country and manage their own franchise operations in their territory.
Founded in 1977, Chem-Dry is the world's leading carpet and upholstery cleaner, serving 10,000 homes a day. Its green-certified solution and proprietary hot carbonating extraction process deliver a faster-drying, deeper, healthier cleaning. Its highly ranked franchise system, which consists of 3,500 units, extends worldwide. For more information, visit www.chemdryfranchise.com.
