Chris Miller accidentally becomes a Renew Crew franchisee
Sometimes a life changing opportunity comes along completely by accident. That’s exactly what happened to Renew Crew franchisee Chris Miller.
While living in Phoenix, AZ, Miller planned on attending a real estate presentation as he was getting ready to sell his house. However, Miller wrote down the incorrect date of the presentation and when he arrived at the location, it turned out the real estate presentation had happened the day before. But, there was a presentation by a franchise brokerage going on that day and since he was there and interested in franchising, Miller thought he might as well watch it.
He purchased his Renew Crew franchise at the end of 2010 and officially started operations in 2012. After 15 years as a project manager in the mining industry and traveling extensively while managing large projects in Colorado and South America, Miller had got tired of never being home.
“I just got kind of burned out on the travel,” he recalled. He also grew tired of working for a major company and its obligatory bureaucracy, plus working with people who didn’t share the same values as him.
That all changed when he was introduced to Renew Crew.
Renew Crew brings new franchisees to headquarters in Springfield, MO for a week of training. The Renew Crew team took Miller out to a franchise location to learn the proper techniques of cleaning and staining a deck. Plus, he also learned accounting practices, IT and everything else he needed to know about running a business.
And while he was doing that, the company outfitted an entire van with wrapped advertising and everything he would need to launch, including an inventory and supplies package. Miller said the fact that Renew Crew has its own branded products attracted him to the company.
Right after he received his new van, he drove from Springfield to Raleigh and jumped into the business, just himself at first. Eventually, he hired another guy and then it grew from there. Now he has 16 employees including one who handles estimates.
Miller himself is still involved a bit in the day-to-day operation, but he wants to completely remove himself from that and concentrate on relationship building. He wants to get involved with properties that have multiple decks rather than just homes that have a single deck so he plans to start building relationships with the various property managers of housing complexes around the city.
Helping him out with this is Renew Crew’s dedicated marketing department that is always available for franchisees when they need it. Company representatives take periodic trips to see how things are going so they can help franchisees to get better. They’ll make suggestions and recommendations, and if they like something one franchisee is doing, they’ll suggest it to other franchisees.
And Miller must be doing something right. Through a lot of hard work, he experienced in the vicinity of 400% growth between the first and second year and last year. Chris’s continued growth has propelled him into the top tier of the Renew Crew franchise system.
Like Chris Miller, the Renew Crew system continues to grow each year with year over year sales growth of 16% reported in 2014.
