Why Restoration 1 is a Best-bet Investment for Women Entrepreneurs
The award-winning restoration franchise is a best-bet investment for entrepreneurs seeking an easy-to-run, high-margin business
With National Women’s History Month underway, this is a great time for female entrepreneurs to make their dreams of owning a business a reality. For those seeking a recession-resistant business to own, franchising with Restoration 1 restoration franchise is a wise choice.
Founded in 2008, Restoration 1 — the fastest-growing restoration service in the nation — provides 24/7 water damage, fire damage restoration and mold remediation services to communities throughout the United States. As the leading name in property restoration services, our brand has more than 240 locations open and in development in 39 states, with plans to expand to more than 500 locations nationwide in the next three years.
A major contributing factor to the rapid growth of the restoration industry is the rising number of natural disasters resulting from climate change, including earthquakes, storms, floods and heat waves, as well as more commonplace disasters that result from aging infrastructure. Helping homeowners recover from these common problems is where Restoration 1 excels. Unlike other restoration businesses that “storm chase” hoping to benefit from people’s misfortunes, we are 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.
“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.”

Because we have zero overhead and no buildout costs or brick-and-mortar expenses, Restoration 1 is far more affordable than other franchise concepts in the home restoration industry.

“I am most passionate about giving new entrepreneurs the opportunity to be successful in business,” says Gary FIndley, CEO of Restoration 1. “Our franchisees invest real money into franchising with us, and we take that extremely seriously. We have a robust initial and ongoing training platform that gives our franchisees the tools they need to be successful. This is why our franchisees are able to be successful without any prior experience in the restoration industry. Many franchisees come from corporate America, wanting to own a business that has exceptional ROI, and is easy to run and easy to scale.”
