Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) May 21, 2014 - Enviro-Master, recognized by Entrepreneur magazine as a Top New Franchise for 2014, welcomes its newest East Atlanta franchise location to its fast-growing franchise that redefines clean. Following two years of searching with Bruce Krebs of The Entrepreneur’s Source for a business that best fits their interests, personalities and business goals, Andy and Rose Blakely purchased their Enviro-Master franchise from Pat Swisher, President and CEO of Charlotte, NC-based Enviro-Master and considered to be the founder of the Hygiene Industry. Enviro-Master will serve businesses throughout East Atlanta to include Alpharetta, Gainesville, Decatur, Stone Mountain, Peach Tree City, Fayetteville, as well as Athens and Lawrenceville. They expect to start in June 2014.
Twenty-three franchises have been sold throughout the US including: Orlando, San Antonio, Greensboro, Raleigh, Greenville, Tampa, Houston, St. Louis, Nashville, Detroit, Jacksonville, Washington, D.C., Cape Coral, FL, Pittsburgh, Charlotte, Raleigh, Chicago, West Atlanta, Dallas, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Bernardino County and now East Atlanta.
"For us, this business will be about building relationships with our customers and providing a high level of customer service," said Andy Blakely. "Both Rose and I bring extensive experience in providing service excellence in our respective careers. Our discovery day in Charlotte with Enviro-Master showed us that not only is this a rare business opportunity but the people who will be supporting us through start-up and for years to come are outstanding." Blakely continued, "Everyone we have worked with from the corporate team to other franchise owners have proven to be highly positive and very ready to help. They all share our zeal for outstanding service, teamwork, achieving a high level of success and having fun while doing it."
Most recently, Andy Blakely was relationship manager for the external manufacturing division at Merck, Inc. with specific experience in strategic sourcing, cross-functional team leadership, supply chain and purchasing management. He received his Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of Memphis. Rose Blakely built a successful massage therapy business over the past 20 years. "We were looking for a business that met specific criterion such as residual business, relatively low startup cost, limited competition, will not be outdated by new technology and recession resistant. It is a very rare thing to find a business that meets all of these criteria. Enviro-Master meets them all!"

Bruce Krebs of Chattanooga, Tennessee is a top-ranked consultant for the past 10+ years for The Entrepreneur’s Source and was recently named Franchise of the Year. Krebs has placed several of his clients with Enviro-Master. "Last September, I met with Andy and Rose and realized that they were considering opportunities that did not meet criteria for optimum success: reasonable investment; high likelihood of success; premium territory; recession-resistant; low or no competition; not a commodity business; not a concept that can be overtaken; franchisor with a great marketing program, and the opportunity should not be seasonal," said Krebs. "Enviro-Master is a proven service business led by an industry pioneer, and I think it will be a great fit for the Blakely’s."
Enviro-Master is an approved vendor in virtually all of the National Restaurant Chains.
"We welcome Andy and Rose to our growing franchise system," remarked Pat Swisher. "We believe they are well-equipped to build a vibrant service business in East Atlanta and look forward to working with them."
