Chem-Dry Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Ranked as Budget-Friendly Franchise Opportunity

New Entrepreneur Magazine ranking unveils the best franchises for buyers of every budget level.

September 21, 2017 // // Nashville, Tenn. – Chem-Dry, the world’s largest carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise system, was recently included in Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Best Franchises For Any Budget” ranking. The all-new ranking unveils the best franchises for buyers within specific budget levels. Chem-Dry solidified its place in the top 50 best franchises to invest in for less than $100,000.

Celebrating the elite franchise companies in the Franchise 500, this marks the first “Best Franchises For Any Budget” ranking of its kind. This year’s Franchise 500 ranking evaluated concepts based on cost, size, growth, franchisee support, brand strength and financial stability. The “Best Franchises For Any Budget” was compiled from this list based on various investment levels.

Last year, Chem-Dry experienced rapid growth as it added 135 new franchises to its network, marking the fourth straight year the brand sold over 100 units in the United States and Canada. The concept also added several international locations, bringing its global footprint to 52 countries through its Master Franchise model and increasing the brand’s strength and industry leadership.

“Entrepreneurs are consistently looking for career and investment opportunities that will create profit at a quicker rate with minimal financial burden,” said Dan Tarantin, President and CEO of Harris Research, Inc., parent company of Chem-Dry. “Chem-Dry is a low-cost franchise that capitalizes on the growing consumer demand for environmentally-friendly home maintenance and home improvement services, which has fueled the continued growth and success of our franchisees in their local communities.”

Chem-Dry uses a green-certified solution and proprietary Hot Carbonating Extraction (HCE) process to provide a deeper, longer lasting clean, and create healthier homes and workplaces. In a study by an independent lab, Chem-Dry’s HCE cleaning method was found to remove an average of 98 percent of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery and an average of 89 percent of airborne bacteria when a sanitizer was added. As part of the brand’s focus on ensuring overall home health, it now has over 40 Green Certified products.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized as a budget-friendly franchise from a highly acclaimed source like Entrepreneur,” said Tarantin. “We strive to be a high-quality brand that is affordable for franchisees and our customers. By keeping our franchise investment affordable and at the same time offering superior processes and results, we are able to attract passionate franchisees who are great representatives of the brand and who take pride in providing exceptional customer service. And that’s the engine that drives the ongoing success of the Chem-Dry system.”
