In order to provide the necessary support for our master franchisees, we have more than 130 team members combined who work every day to assist with a myriad of needs, including sales, marketing, operational management, and plans for growth, for our Chem-Dry, N-Hance, and HOODZ franchisees.

We also have online training programs that can be accessed at any time by our franchisees at no cost, including our own Chem-Dry University, N-Hance University, and the Academy for HOODZ, where we offer different modules and courses that provide the tools and information needed for our franchisees to thrive.

“Our master franchisees are our number one priority, and we can’t wait to continue to grow our family in new regions and countries around the world”

In regards to marketing assistance, we have created templates through InDesign (Adobe) that allow our franchisees to create custom materials for their specific regions and businesses, while still using the Chem-Dry, N-Hance, and HOODZ logos and colors, respectively. These templates allow the franchisee to add their own name, wording, and contact information, saving thousands of dollars in graphic design costs.

We ensure proper training and provide the coaching needed to take our franchisees to the next level and to help them reach their full potential as a member of our team. We also provide software that allows our franchisees to seamlessly manage their growing businesses while analyzing their results and capturing revenue and profit opportunities. Our master franchisees are our number one priority, and we can’t wait to continue to grow our family in new regions and countries around the world.
