Building a New PuroClean Franchise Business Empire

Just seven years ago, Jason Smith started his Annapolis, Maryland, PuroClean franchise business with only two trucks and the goal of achieving financial freedom one day. Today, Smith has two offices and is well on his way to establishing his own brand empire. After his first location grew into a business worth over $1.75 million, Smith sold it. Since then, he's opened two new locations, bringing this emergency property services brand to Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and Naples, Florida.

Smith's current plans are ambitious. He is planning to grow his franchises in both cities. He has two vehicles and is preparing to purchase more, and he wants to expand into four other nearby territories in both areas. According to Smith, he's been able to build this cross-state business thanks to the brand's internal claims software, PuroMetrix, and the other operational protocols the brand's home office team has in place.

The longtime franchisee also believes PuroClean sets up all its franchisees for success, whether it's a growing empire like his business or a smaller one-truck operation. He credited his multi-state success to the brand's level of national recognition and its recession-proof business model. There are over $200 billion in insurance claims each year, and those who access this franchise opportunity receive sizable territories to increase their chances of success in their relative markets.

This brand also offers an advanced program, the Certified Priority Response (CPR) program, for franchisees who want to work with partners across the country. The program brought in $300,000 in revenue to just one of Smith's locations.

Founded in 1991, PuroClean offers emergency property restoration services, such as flood clean-up. This franchise opportunity has a franchise fee of $45,000, and the initial total investment ranges from $71,190 to $99,305 if the equipment, supplies and trucks are financed or $141,440 to $166,415 if the trucks, equipment and supplies are purchased outright.
