Owners open up about what they love about life in the fastest-growing restoration franchise

Restoration 1 is the fastest growing restoration franchise in the nation. While the $210 billion restoration business is booming, Restoration 1 is one of the only brands capable of national expansion, as the competition is either sold-out of territory or cannot keep up with the demand. In contrast, Restoration 1 is in a period of explosive growth that began when visionary CEO Gary Findley took the reigns of the brand in 2016 — adding more than 150 locations in the span of two years — and we’re not stopping there. Findley recently announced plans to have 300 locations open by the end of 2019.

Bryan Ligman, owner of a Restoration 1 franchise in Marietta, Georgia:

After years in the corporate environment, Ligman was ready for a career that helped others. Restoration 1 excels at that; our franchisees are often on the front lines of tragedy and are there to solve problems for people during their most difficult times.

“Our desire to open a business wasn’t all about the money; it was about helping people,” Ligman says. “A Restoration 1 business can have a huge effect on people when they are picking up the pieces of their lives after a disaster. Of all the opportunities we looked at and businesses we considered, this one had the most impact on others.”

Craig Neilsen, owner of a Restoration 1 franchise in Nashville, TN:

Nielsen’s high expectations for the Restoration 1 executive team were greatly exceeded when he signed the franchise agreement. Our training platform is one of the most robust in the entire $210 billion restoration industry, and we place special emphasis on financial awareness, getting established quickly and generating revenue.

“The executive team helps you gain traction really fast,” Nielsen says. “There’s a lot of work that needs to happen before you go to training — obtaining business licenses, getting your equipment ordered and all that. I opened my doors on September 1 and by September 8 I had my first job. It was a cash job, too, which was really nice to put some money in the bank in a very short period of time.”
