Why Restoration is the Best Franchise Industry

By opening a franchise you have the freedom to work for yourself and control your economic growth, but to be a truly successful entrepreneur you must select the right industry that fits your needs, lifestyle, and is stable through variable economic conditions. So why restoration? Well, by joining the $210 billion restoration industry and specifically 911 Restoration, you’ll be able to take advantage of benefits liking being part of a recession-proof industry, getting support from an experienced franchisor, and making a difference in people’s lives. Let’s go more in depth as to why the restoration industry is the best one for franchising:

The Restoration Industry is Recession-Proof

What makes the restoration industry such an appealing market for entrepreneurs to invest in is the fact that restoration sector is essentially recession-proof. Currently, the restoration industry is a $210 billion industry, and growing, due to aging home infrastructures, worsening storms, increases in wildfires, and frequent flooding due to global warming. In the U.S alone there are $170 million in commercial losses and $40 million residential losses reported each year as a result of these damaging effects. With the increase in natural disasters and extreme weather conditions, the restoration sector is in more demand than ever due to:

blankIn addition to extreme weather conditions, regular home mishaps also contribute to the growing restoration industry. It’s currently reported that up to 14,000 homeowners experience water damage daily. What’s more, with water damage you not only have to restore the structure, but there’s also an increased risk of mold growth. Of those 14,000 people, 37 percent of those claim to have experienced significant losses due to the water damage. Most commonly in residential water damage incidents, the cause was not due to current weather conditions, but instead by household fixtures including plumbing failures like leaks or frozen pipes, burst pipes, plumbing drain problems, toilet issues, and water heater or washing machine malfunctions. With so many causes of home damages and a growing need for restoration services, this fast-growing industry is one of the safest, most secure franchises to be a part of. Additional growth opportunities for restoration franchises also include the rebounding construction and development industry, the EPA’s recommendation that mold remediation professionals address mold in areas larger than 10 square feet, and climate scientists predicting more and more unpredictable weather due to global warming. By joining this industry and the 911 Restoration franchise your growth opportunities are nearly endless, which is one of the benefits of the restoration industry, period.

Helping Others

You feel a sense of pride and personal accomplishment when you help others and that feeling only improves when you assist them during a personal tragedy. When a homeowner experiences water damage or a fire, many of their personal items are destroyed. Through the restoration process, you can personally help them get back several of their cherished items, make their home safe for themselves and their family, and restore their peace of mind. At 911 Restoration, this is what we call giving customers a “Fresh Start.”

Easy Transition

Whether you have prior restoration experience or you’re a newcomer to the industry but willing to learn, you’ll find the transition is fast and easy. Contractors working in industries like carpet cleaning can benefit from already having existing equipment, manpower, and vehicles from their previous company. And even if you don’t, the start-up costs are more than reasonable and you’ll have an experienced restoration franchisor to walk you through the process of opening your new restoration franchise.
