Starting in 1967 as a painting business, Servpro Industries, Inc., has emerged as a leading franchisor in the cleanup and restoration industry. SERVPRO was founded by Ted & Doris Isaacson in Sacramento, CA, and began franchising in 1969 as a cleaning and restoration company. In 1979, SERVPRO acquired the Bristol-Myers Domesticare Division, which was comprised of 175 franchises. In 1988, SERVPRO moved the corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, TN. This was a strategic move to place the new location within 600 miles of 50 percent of the U.S. population. At that point in SERVPRO's history, SERVPRO had 647 franchises. SERVPRO soon became a key contributor in the community, and in 1991, the Nashville Business Journal named SERVPRO Small Business of the Year. SERVPRO continued to expand its franchise system around the country. In 2000, SERVPRO sold its 1,000th franchise. In 2002, SERVPRO set a new record by selling 100 franchises for the year. The growth continues because the need for their franchisees' services will never go away. That growth presents a great opportunity for prospective franchisees. SERVPRO continues to achieve high rankings in national Franchising publications. SERVPRO was recognized for its national television commercials in 2004, winning six Addy Awards. In April, 2005, SERVPRO moved to a new 106,000 sq ft building. The facility was built to meet the increasing growth of the company.
