Expansion business

Carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise leader, Chem-Dry, has wrapped another year with double-digit signed agreements and has sights set on aggressive franchise expansion in 2024. With an unwavering commitment to elevating franchisee success, the brand celebrated the addition of 28 franchises last year. With the carpet cleaning industry expected to exceed $6.9 billion by 2028, the brand urges interested partners to tap into this growth market and join in Chem-Dry’s pursuit of awarding 50 more locations in 2024.

Since its launch in 2017, Chem-Dry’s QuickStart program continues to take center stage in development strategies, playing a pivotal role to help the brand nearly double its  annual revenue. The program continues to be a testament to the levels of success that are achievable through the emphasis on educating and training business owners. With a low-cost investment, the potential for revenue growth consistently attracts prospects to explore the franchise opportunity. 

“From where I’m standing, Chem-Dry is truly at the forefront of excellence within the cleaning industry,” says Ed Quinlan, president of Chem-Dry, part of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands. “With a strategic blend of innovative solutions and unparalleled support, our brand is advancing to new heights. The year ahead is paved with exciting opportunities for our franchise partners, and we are dedicated to shaping a future where Chem-Dry remains a leader in the industry.”

Chem-Dry has recently received notable recognition by securing positions in prestigious rankings including the Franchise Times Top 400 and Entrepreneur Franchise 500. Most recently, the brand was named one of Franchise Direct’s Top 100 Franchises in 2024. These accolades underscore the brand’s formidable standing within the competitive franchise landscape. Chem-Dry was founded in 1977 and has since become the recognized market leader by building a robust network of more than 1,500 franchises across the country, serving more than 40,000 homes and businesses weekly across 30-plus countries. This year the brand is poised to continue its market leadership and growth.
