Aire Serv® Celebrates Strong First Half of 2020
Aire Serv awards almost 10 new franchise agreements, opens 15 new locations
July 23, 2020 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas - Aire Serv, a Neighborly company, ended the first half of the year on a high note, awarding almost 10 new franchise agreements and opening 15 new locations from January-June of this year. This brings the total size of the Aire Serv network to more than 200 locations open and in development across North America with a strong forecast of continued expansion ahead.
“Aire Serv has remained an essential business throughout the pandemic, with almost all of our local franchise locations continuing to provide excellent services to our customers throughout the ongoing health crisis,” said Marla Mock, Vice President of Aire Serv. “Recognizing the uncertainty during this pandemic, we have consistently kept our owners informed about Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) or Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans offered by the Small Business Administration (SBA). This, along with a strong commitment to sharing best practices on protocols to ensure the safety of our customers and team members, allowed our franchise locations to continue providing their same high level of service during this pandemic.”
New agreements in the first and second quarters expanded Aire Serv to four new markets, including Kansas City, Wichita Falls, Ft. Wayne and Saskatoon, Canada. Additionally, new territories awarded will grow the brand’s existing presence in markets like Atlanta, Columbus, Chattanooga and Bowling Green.
Other highlights from the first half of 2020 include:
- Introduction of a new “Pricebook,” a software tool that helps service professionals create a better customer experience;
- Inclusion in top industry rankings, such as Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 (#445); Franchise Business Review’s Top 200 Franchises, Top Low-Cost Franchises and 50 Best Recession-Proof Franchises; and Franchise Times’ Top 200+ Franchises (#274).
“Across our roster of brands, Neighborly has benefited in recent months from the essential nature of our home service brands,” said Brad Stevenson, Chief Development Officer of Neighborly, the parent company of Aire Serv. “I commend our Aire Serv franchise owners’ willingness to adapt in the face of adversity and to continue serving customers at the highest level. Aire Serv’s consistent industry recognition, its continued expansion through franchise development and its never-ending commitment to providing the best support possible to its franchise owners are all characteristics of this brand that we consider to be critical to furthering Neighborly’s vision to 'own the home' with our family of home service brands.”
