The water restoration franchise helps first-time entrepreneurs without any experience in the industry realize their full potential
While natural disasters are becoming more severe due to climate change, the real threats for homeowners are far more common: water damage, mold, indoor air quality issues and fire damage. No matter the cause of these unfortunate disasters, there will always be a need for highly qualified water restoration professionals.
Helping homeowners recover from these common problems is where Restoration 1, the fastest-growing restoration franchise in the nation, excels. Unlike other restoration businesses who “storm chase”, hoping to benefit from people’s misfortune, Restoration 1 is driven by our core values to conduct business ethically and to always show compassion and empathy for the home and property owners who rely on us when the unexpected occurs.
Our award-winning franchise uses advanced technologies and tools to perform restoration for residential and commercial properties that have been damaged by water, smoke, fire, mold, storms and more. Founded in 2008, Restoration 1 continues to stand out in the $210 billion restoration industry with more than 300 locations sold, and plans to expand to more than 500 locations nationwide in the next three years.
“Restoration 1 employs a level of transparency that is uncommon in this industry, providing the customer with continual updates as to the status of every job, as well as a guarantee that their homes will not only be left in perfect condition, but that they will be safe to live in their homes again,” says Micah Findley, COO of Restoration 1. “We take customer service extremely seriously. We place follow-up calls with the customers to measure a customer’s happiness with our services, as well as provide franchise owners with details on the quality of their technician’s work.”
Restoration 1 is committed to helping franchisees thrive
We are absolutely committed to the success of our franchise owners. Our proven business model has helped several first-time entrepreneurs without any experience in the restoration industry achieve exponential results. Franchising with Restoration 1 means that you are never alone in business. From the moment the franchise agreement is signed, we provide our franchisees with everything they need to quickly ramp up their businesses and become established in their communities over the long term.
This begins with a robust 12-day training program where we teach franchisees about every aspect of their new business, including how to become industry certified, network to build referral partners and sell and perform services with expertise. From there, we provide on-the-job training where new franchisees are taken on several jobs with an established franchise owner where they learn how to perform a job correctly, experience how we utilize our DASH software and how to provide unmatched customer service for which Restoration 1 is known.
Financial awareness is also a large part of why our franchisees are successful. During the 12-day session, we establish a pro forma business plan with every franchisee to help set realistic and achievable long-term and short-term goals. We meet with you on a weekly basis going forward to refine your strategy, help you scale your business and hold you accountable to your goals.
Owning a Restoration 1 franchise certainly doesn’t have to break the bank. Since we are a home-based business with little inventory and no brick-and-mortar expenses, costs are substantially lower than other restoration franchise brands. The total investment estimate for a Restoration 1 franchise starts at $79,100. Restoration 1 is a low-cost investment with high potential returns.
