Restoration 1 Featured in “12 Amazing Franchise Opportunities – Second Edition” by Dr. John Hayes

WACO, Texas – Restoration 1, one of the fastest-growing and most-trusted restoration franchises in North America, has been named an “Amazing Franchise Opportunity” by internationally recognized franchise speaker and author Dr. John Hayes in his new book: “12 Amazing Franchise Opportunities – Second Edition.”

The feature comes at a time of accelerated growth and success for the brand. In the past year, Restoration 1 has welcomed their largest training class in history, expanded into 31 new states, opened 70 locations and acquired a complimentary service brand, Phoenix-based bluefrog Plumbing + Drain. Over the next five years, Restoration 1 has plans to expand to more than 500 locations nationwide. Additionally, the brand earned the #132 spot on the prestigious Entrepreneur Franchise 500 list, was ranked #23 in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 Low-Cost Franchises for 2018 and earned the #10 spot on Franchise Gator’s Fastest Growing Franchise List for 2018.

“Having Restoration 1 be recognized as one of the best franchise opportunities in the country is a real testament to the hard work our team has put in to create the best opportunity for success for our franchisees,” said Gary Findley, CEO of Restoration 1. “I’ve always known what an amazing opportunity Restoration 1 is but it’s great to have that validated by a leader in the franchise industry like Dr. John Hayes.”

In his latest book, Dr. Hayes explores the secrets of creating a one-of-a-kind franchise success story and then looks at 12 franchise brands, including Restoration 1, which Dr. Hayes considers to be an “amazing opportunity” for 2018. Restoration 1 was selected because of access franchisees have to the best suppliers and services, a professional online presence, recent and explosive growth, and a forward-thinking exit strategy.

“Restoration 1 franchisees get the chance to be a hero every time they go to work because when customers call, they are experiencing an emergency, and Restoration 1 franchisees get to save the day,” Dr. Hayes writes. “How many franchisees can say that?”

“12 Amazing Franchise Opportunities – Second Edition” is available for Kindle and other digital readers as well as in paperback through Amazon and other online outlets.
