Restoration 1® Launches 2017 With Biggest Training Class in History

Franchise network welcomes 16 franchisees in January

February 09, 2017 // // WACO, Texas – Restoration 1®, one of the fastest-growing and most-trusted restoration franchises in North America, celebrated its biggest training class in company history with 16 new franchise owners in January.

“Our success continues to grow, and so do the communities that we serve to rescue customers from unthinkable disasters,” said Gary Findley, CEO of Restoration 1®.

The January training class represented franchise owners for new locations opening in: Tennessee, New York, Colorado, Ohio, Kansas, Florida, Texas and California.

The franchisees join a rapidly-growing Restoration 1® network that also just received its highest ranking in company history in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Annual Franchise 500. The company that ranked #383 in 2016 skyrocketed to #96 this year.

“I credit our phenomenal franchise sales team and a franchise opportunity that has attracted the most incredible prospects in my entire career of franchising,” Findley said. “From Wall Street executives and corporate evacuees, to military veterans and successful entrepreneurs, we have the most qualified leaders joining our network.”

Since assuming leadership of Restoration 1® in early 2016, Findley has catapulted the franchise onto the national stage and turned a strong restoration business into an award-winning franchise network. The company had 30 locations when Findley became CEO, and today the brand includes 92 locations open and in development.

“This January class was an example of the scale of growth we’re on and an even bigger year of development for the year ahead,” Findley said. Restoration 1® has plans to add another 100 franchises in 2017 with a goal to expand internationally as well.
