Steamatic Brand Story
Bill Henry, Northridge, California
Bill got his start in the restoration and cleaning industry as a sales representative with BMS CAT, which had a store in Santa Fe Springs-Los Angeles, California. BMS CAT joined Steamatic founders Blackmon Mooring in 1981. In 1994, when the store decided to shut down to become a Steamatic franchise, Bill bought it. For about 10 of the past 20 years, his wife helped him run the business.
Bill says he wears a lot of hats at his franchise — he still goes out to job sites, meets with insurance agents and adjusters, writes estimates, hosts safety and staff meetings and calls customers.
“Starting with the right people is key,” Bill says about running a Steamatic franchise. “You must have an understanding that you are providing a service and at all times must provide it well. That creates a reputation that people will trust, so they will call you back and refer you to others.”
One of the biggest things Bill appreciates about Steamatic’s corporate team is the support for franchisees. “Steamatic has created a solid base that the franchisees can call on at any time. They have hired a great staff to develop and support the system. They have created great marketing materials and training for new and existing franchisees. They are constantly developing new markets for the franchise system to work in.”
Bill is proud of owning his own business and being his own boss. He would tell anyone considering Steamatic’s cleaning franchise opportunities that, “This is a great industry to be in, and Steamatic is probably one of the best opportunities at this time.”
