Why the Restoration 1 Franchise is a Meaningful Business to Own

2017’s tragic hurricane season is a strong reminder of why entrepreneurs choose to invest in the premier restoration franchise

The ongoing tragedy of this year’s hurricane season is a stark reminder of the importance of the restoration industry. One after another, we’ve watched as Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose and Maria ravaged American cities and towns, causing billions of dollars in property damage. The media leaves once the storm passes, while the people who make up the devastated communities begin the hard work of putting their lives back together. For many, that means calling companies like Restoration 1.

Restoration 1 stands apart from the rest of the brands in the $210 billion restoration industry because we are committed to providing expert, affordable and rapid solutions to the home and property owners who need us to be expert, affordable and quick after a crisis. Since 2008, we’ve helped thousands of home and property owners return safely to their homes and properties after disaster strikes, mitigating water, fire and smoke damage, or removal and remediation of dangerous mold.

Other brands may hire unqualified employees, but we never cut corners on the level of training, education and certification required to do an exceptional job. Every one of Restoration 1’s property restoration experts is licensed, insured and certified by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) and the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA). Restoration 1 also has a 100% guarantee on all services, operating with skill, speed and empathy to get customers back in their homes as fast as possible.

“We want Restoration 1 to embody the best that the restoration industry has to offer to those who really need our help,” says Gary Findley, CEO of Restoration 1. “This is why our initial training and ongoing training are so intensive. Our franchisees may come from different professional backgrounds, wanting to own a business that is meaningful to their community while also providing a better life for themselves and their families. In order to fulfill this goal, we ensure that our franchisees are knowledgeable, trained and certified across the board. We never waver on this commitment.”

Every new franchisee goes through a full 12-day training session to learn to properly serve those in your community who will need your help. This training session includes everything from becoming industry certified, and managing customer relationships to effectively marketing your business in your community — including on social media platforms. Most importantly, you will go through on-the-job training where you will learn how to perform your services with expertise.

This commitment to customer service and proper training is essential when helping folks who are dealing with damaged homes and properties. It’s so much a part of our brand that we call it the Restoration 1 promise:


  • We are committed to customer service.
  • We are available 24/7.
  • We have 100% satisfaction guarantees.
  • We are licensed and insured.
  • We fully train and certify all our restoration specialists.

The results of our efforts are phenomenal. According to our most recent Franchise Disclosure Document, our franchisees earn more than $1 million in revenues after 12 months in business. If you’re interested in taking the leap to become a small business owner, we invite you to further explore the Restoration 1 franchise and join a brand that is making a difference in communities nationwide.
