SirVent’s Mark Stoner to Speak at 2016 Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Expo in New Orleans

Director of Marketing for pioneering chimney and venting services franchise to share expertise at North America’s largest indoor-outdoor living showcase.

NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE (PRWEB) March 15, 2016 - SirVent Franchising, LLC, a franchised chimney sweeping and restoration business, is proud to announce that Director of Marketing Mark Stoner will share his expertise at this year’s Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Expo in New Orleans on March 16–19.

Author, marketing guru and seasoned chimney services professional Mark Stoner has gleaned years of insight in fireplace and hearth safety. In 2015, Stoner teamed up with the brains behind three more of the nation’s leading sweeping operations to found SirVent – a full-service, one-stop-shop solution for fireplace, dryer vent and chimney care. Stoner will be speaking at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, March 18, in Room 356 on “Blue Collar Gold: How to Build a Service Business For Your Retail Store.” He invites expo attendees to join him and culinary expert John Henry later at 10:30 a.m. in Room 356, as the two share first-rate techniques for fellow barbecue enthusiasts in “Smoke Like a Pro.”

Stoner will close the weekend with a final session on Saturday, March 19, at 8:00 a.m. in Room 343, as he discusses the exceptional value and vision behind the SirVent concept.

“The look and feel of the service sector is changing. SirVent’s business model embraces that as we ramp up technology and service standards in an industry that’s, literally, as old as dust,” Stoner said. “We’re excited to be able to share that with attendees.”

Interested attendees can expect to learn what it takes to be a SirVent franchisee. Additionally, they will discover the expertise and resources available to franchisees – including certification classes, state-of-the-art technology and industry networking opportunities – as they develop their own full-service sweeping operation.

Stoner’s sessions are free to attend. All four SirVent co-founders will be at Booth 2754 at the expo to provide additional information.

“Most people looking to invest in a business opportunity wouldn’t consider a chimney sweeping operation – there’s definitely nothing glamorous about it,” Stoner added. “But, the right person for this opportunity isn’t afraid to get dirty and knows a promising venture when they see it. That’s key for us.”

The 2016 Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Expo will be held March 16-19 at Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Year after year, more than 350 hearth, patio and barbecue manufacturers and suppliers gather to learn about best practices while showcasing top products in the industry.
