Chem-Dry Master Franchise Partners: 'There's No Real Competition'

NASHVILLE, TN--(Marketwire - Feb 13, 2013) - A recent announcement that the world's largest floor-cleaning franchise plans to expand into new countries prompts a question: What's it like to be a Chem-Dry master franchise partner?

Mattjis Kaas, who owns rights in the Netherlands and Belgium, said superior technology is what has impressed him most since partnering with Chem-Dry in 2003.

"The way we clean, if you compare us with the competition, there's no real comparison," he said.

Chem-Dry is seeking master franchise partners to grow the brand in France, the Philippines, Turkey, Germany, Taiwan, India, Spain, Brazil, Argentina and Chile, among others. For more information, visit www.chemdryfranchise.com/international. Master franchise partners own the rights to the Chem-Dry brand within their country and manage their own franchise operations in their territory.

Chem-Dry has been recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine's Franchise 500 list of outstanding companies for 25 years in a row along with recognition on their Top 50 Franchise list.

Chem-Dry's service is better in several ways. Chem-Dry's hot carbonating extraction method uses 80% less water than steam cleaning, and its primary cleaning solution, The Natural®, is green-certified and does not contain phosphates or detergents, making it safe and non-toxic for kids and pets. Steam cleaning uses detergents that leave behind residues that can trigger allergies and attract dirt, and the excessive water creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Chem-Dry is committed to R&D, which has enabled it to develop proprietary solutions and patented equipment that are the foundation of its franchisees' business.

"The service is spectacular," Kaas said. "I have a friend who owns a large office, and his carpets were awful. There were stains, spots, it was dirty and he always had a runny nose or a headache. I cleaned it and called him a few days later. He said. 'It's amazing. It's amazing. I feel so good!'"

Founded in 1977, Chem-Dry is the world's leading carpet and upholstery cleaner, serving over 10,000 homes a day. Its green-certified solution and proprietary hot carbonating extraction process deliver a faster-drying, deeper, healthier cleaning. Its highly ranked franchise system, which consists of 3,500 units, extends worldwide.
