Over the years, the Chem-Dry cleaning franchise name has become a staple on “best of” lists. Whether it’s the multiple entry points, low overhead or quality products and services, the brand is highly regarded in the franchise industry.
One such monitor of good franchise opportunities is FranchiseRankings.com, a leading provider of reviews and ratings. Their site is a must-stop for entrepreneurs who are beginning research into owning a franchise, as well as for small-business owners who already may be looking to expand their options.
“We are always pleased when a trusted industry name recognizes the value of the Chem-Dry cleaning franchise proposition,” says Doug Smith, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “We can talk about our value all day long, but it’s much more meaningful when a third party, which is evaluating hundreds of other franchises, sees the benefit behind Chem-Dry.”
Monthly rankings have many factors
The team at FranchiseRankings.com produces rankings every month. These stats are compiled by a proprietary evaluation process, according to FranchiseRankings.com, that factors in “key strengths and competitive advantages of the leading franchises across a variety of industries.” Long-term growth and expansion are key indicators of success.
Franchises are separated by industry, and then an overall best-of list is created. In addition to the scoring mechanism used for ratings, input from franchise owners and clients is also factored into the rankings, so it’s not just a collection of dry numbers. “That,” Doug says, “makes achieving a high ranking (No. 53 in Best Overall Franchises for April 2016, and No. 2 in Best Janitorial Franchises for the same month) more significant.”
Continual ratings drive performance
“While a Chem-Dry cleaning franchise operator isn’t doing great work just to get high scores and rankings, having them does add value to the business. That’s why the product development team is always working on new products, equipment and techniques to help owners succeed,” Doug says.
“We make repeat appearances at the top of lists such as those because we never stop innovating,” he adds. “We have a trusted name, thanks to decades of great work by our owners, and we provide industry-best cleaning and restoration services. By continuing to do so, we make sure that our current owners succeed, that our future owners get off to a great start and that we keep ranking high when lists and rankings come out.”
