March 09, 2017 // Franchising.com // DAVIE, Fla. – Dental Fix Rx, a North American mobile dental equipment repair service franchise, has signed a Master Franchise Agreement with Calgary-based serial entrepreneur Paige McCutcheon, for the master rights to develop the franchise in the Canadian province of Alberta.
As a master franchisee, McCutcheon will operate his own Dental Fix Rx franchise in Calgary as well as spearhead growth within the province by selling Dental Fix Rx franchises to local entrepreneurs. His goal is to add three more Dental Fix franchises by the end of the year and have five units in operation within the next three years. McCutcheon will initially be targeting the Calgary and Edmonton markets for franchise expansion.
McCutcheon has a 30-plus year career as a General Contractor and a Logistics Specialist. The first 25 years of his career were spent with an event company, leading development and operations for many high profile events including the 1988 Olympics, The Rotarian World Conference and The World Police & Fire Games, among numerous others. His career then transcended into operations and logistics while working for a premier hospitality organization, where he was responsible for the development and construction of numerous hospitality facilities including restaurants, nightclubs, pubs and remote lodges. He served as lead on several multi-million dollar projects, including ones in urban high-rises and facilities in rural, remote areas where logistics of the development proves challenging. Most recently, he has lead logistics for various development and construction projects throughout North America.
“As an entrepreneur at heart, I was looking for a new opportunity that had strong profitability potential and a reasonable cost of entry,” McCutcheon said. “Dental Fix Rx was the answer. There will always be a need for dentistry services, and therefore will always be a need for a repair provider to fix equipment specific to their industry. What’s great about Dental Fix is that the company is a one-stop shop for any dental office’s repair needs. Plus, there are no competitors that offer the same depth of services or value to customers.”
Dental Fix Rx has sold or opened a new unit each week for the past 40-plus months. In 2016, the company signed 40 new franchise agreements, bringing its total footprint to more than 250 franchises throughout North America. Nearly 20 of these franchises are located in Ontario and British Columbia. Company executives expect to sign another 40 franchise agreements in 2017.
The dental equipment repair sector is a $38 billion industry, and Dental Fix Rx has the right systems and programs in place to capture it. The company is consistently creating new programs that add value to franchisees and their customers, as well as establishing new relationships for its franchisees with big players in the dental industry. For example, the Darby Group, the nation’s largest all-telesales dental products distributor, became an equity partner in Dental Fix Rx in 2016. Beyond the equity stake in the company, through this relationship Dental Fix Rx franchisees are able to offer Darby Dental Supply products to dental practices and also provide dental equipment service and repair to Darby Dental Supply customers.
“Paige is a great addition to the Dental Fix Rx family,” said Scott Mortier, EVP of Business Development at Dental Fix Rx. “His operational background and history of building lasting relationships makes him an ideal fit to spearhead our brand’s growth in a completely new market. We’re confident that he will ramp up quickly and build a great team in Alberta.”
