Steamatic Franchise Closing In on Historic 2016
Revenue growth and new franchisees mark a year of exceeded expectations and new successes for premier water damage restoration franchise
2016 has been an historic year for the Steamatic franchise. With new marketing, training and support systems and a renewed focus on expanding the brand through franchise recruitment, the Steamatic executive team set big goals — and we’re on target to exceed them.
“This has been a great year so far for Steamatic franchise owners,” says Bill Helton, Director of Franchise Development. “New franchisees are joining our system, existing territories continue to grow, and we have put into place some of the best tools and techniques in the industry in order to help our owners succeed.”
Since 1968, Steamatic has been the pioneer restoration and cleaning franchise, providing residential and commercial restoration solutions for water, fire and mold damage around the world. We have a unique hub-and-spoke business model; in addition to restoration, Steamatic also cleans HVAC systems and air ducts, carpets, rugs, furniture, draperies and hard surfaces like stone, tile, hardwoods and countertops.
This innovative approach to diversity of services in a restoration franchise systems is a proven business concept, and for three years running, Steamatic franchises have posted an average revenue of more than $1.1 million, according to our Item 19 disclosure in our latest FDD. In addition to deploying new marketing, technologies and techniques, the potential for huge returns on investment is one of the factors driving our growth.
New Steamatic franchise territories have opened nationwide
So far in 2016, we’ve opened seven new territories across the U.S. From Phoenix, Arizona, to Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, new Steamatic franchise territories are open for business, and we have several more on tap for the coming months.
Joining a growing brand with a long, rich history is a rare opportunity in franchising, and new owners benefit both from the brand’s momentum and the well-known identity. Clients know Steamatic is the name they can turn to when disaster strikes. When they read about new businesses opening or see more trucks on the streets, this reinforces our long history, raises awareness of our company and our services, and keeps us engaged in their communities.
The most exciting part of this period of renewed expansion are the numerous Steamatic territories available in prime growth markets. From Florida to Nevada, we’re looking for entrepreneurs who are ready for growth.
New marketing, technology and support bolster the bottom line
Whether it’s setting up social media profiles or building a comprehensive marketing campaign, Steamatic restoration and cleaning franchise owners enjoy the benefits of an expert marketing team. We work with franchise owners to craft and execute a marketing strategy that is affordable, effective and manageable.
On the technology side, Steamatic’s franchise management team is constantly on the lookout for innovations to streamline operations and management, reduce overhead, and improve customer service. Later this year, we’ll roll out Dash, a new CRM suite that enables owners to stay more on top of their business, to know both their customers and cash flows at the click of a button, and to plan for growth.
For national insurance companies and other large clients, we’ve contracted with a national call center to field those inbound calls. When major insurers have a loss in need of restoration or cleaning, they now have a single point of contact, no matter where the loss occurred. This means Steamatic will be their one stop for all restoration needs, boosting both our service level and revenues for many years to come.
