Delta Disaster Services Doubles U.S. Presence in Less Than Three Months
Award-Winning Restoration Services Franchise System Enters Aggressive Growth Phase; Signs 11 Franchise Licenses
August 15, 2018 // Franchising.com // ARVADA, Colo. - Delta Disaster Services, a nationally recognized and award-winning franchise brand that provides restoration services to commercial and residential properties, announced today that it has signed 11 franchise licenses in less than three months under its new ownership, more than doubling the budding system's U.S. presence. The recent signed agreements have been made exclusively with Chem-Dry franchisees; Delta Disaster Services was acquired in the spring of 2018 by HRI Holdings, Inc. (HRI), the parent company to the Chem-Dry® Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning and N-Hance® Wood Refinishing franchise businesses.
"The interest in the Delta Disaster Services franchise model from the Chem-Dry network has been and continues to be exceptionally strong," said Mike Mastous, founder and president of Delta Disaster Services. "We recently launched an aggressive growth strategy to become a dominant force in the restoration industry, and to see this level of demand and momentum so early is exciting - especially from such a qualified and experienced group. I'm eager to continue expanding our reach through the existing Chem-Dry franchisee network, as well as with other entrepreneurs looking to enter the $60 billion-plus restoration category with our strong and unique franchise model."
The recent Delta Disaster Services franchise agreements span the continental United States, including several licenses in Texas, Utah and California. The earliest openings are scheduled for late August 2018 in College Station, Texas, followed by the Dallas market in September.
Through HRI's acquisition, Delta Disaster Services is able to offer its franchise opportunity to the 1,100 existing Chem-Dry and N-Hance franchisees in the United States. For Chem-Dry franchisees, many of whom already provide some restoration services, Delta Disaster Services is a logical addition to their portfolio because it gives them a dedicated and established property restoration brand with a strong support system and established industry relationships that can improve their competitiveness locally.
There are two opportunities available to new Delta Disaster Services franchisees - an emergency services offering including water, fire and smoke, and environmental mitigation; and, a full-service offering that includes not only emergency services but reconstruction services as well. Regardless of which franchise model they choose to open with, all franchisees will become a full-service operation within three years of opening.
Delta Disaster Services provides an industry-leading restoration solution to both residential and commercial clients. Franchise owners and customers alike enjoy the benefits of the Delta Disaster Services highly integrated communication platform that tracks jobs from initial call through completion, incorporating all documentation and photos and providing real-time access. Delta Disaster Services also distinguishes itself with thorough and rigorous education for its staff. In fact, its certification requirements put Delta Disaster Services franchisees in the top one percent of all restoration companies nationally. Further, the brand is positioned favorably with insurance carriers who value the superior quality of work, reliability and ease of communication with Delta Disaster Services franchise owners.
Under the direction of HRI, Delta Disaster Services is benefitting from the parent company's proven ability to scale concepts. In the near term, HRI and Delta Disaster Services are teaming up to build a new, world-class flood house training facility in Denver near the brand's headquarters, allowing for a higher-grade hands-on education experience exclusively for its owners and their employees. The company expects the new facility to be open and begin being used in franchisee training in the spring of 2019.
Currently, Delta Disaster Services has operations in sixteen markets, including its corporately run territory in Denver. Franchise units operate in Northern, Southern and Western Colorado, as well as Salt Lake City, Northern Los Angeles and in the Gulf Coast areas of Northwest Florida, Southern Mississippi and Alabama. With the addition of its recently signed agreements, the brand will have operations in 25 markets across the country.
