3 Reasons to Invest in a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE Franchise
Fast-growing water damage franchise is a savvy investment
Looking for a business opportunity in a $210 billion industry, that allows you to make a lasting impact in your community, and, on top of it all, is easy-to-scale? Well, then look no further than 1-800 WATER DAMAGE.
“There’s never been a better time to invest in a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE restoration franchise,” says Tim Fagan, President of 1-800 WATER DAMAGE. “There’s a growing need for our services. And we stand out because our commitment to going above and beyond for the homeowner is unlike anyone else. In turn, we go above and beyond for our franchisees with the best training and support in the nation. We’re going to be growing for years to come.”
Here’s three reasons why investing in a 1-800 WATER DAMAGE franchise is a wise choice.
The restoration industry continues to grow
Current industry studies estimate the restoration and remediation industry is generating about $210 billion a year. This is going to grow in the coming years as storms, wildfires, droughts, floods and aging infrastructure continue to wreak havoc on homes. What’s more, 14,000 people experience a water damage emergency at home or at work every day, and for years, 1-800 WATER DAMAGE has been the go-to company to call in times of crisis.
Further proof – the U.S. Census recently reported the average age of a home is nearly 40 years old. Storms, flooding and wildfires will only continue to happen more frequently. This will set up home and commercial restoration companies up for a huge demand in their services.
“This is a recession-resistant business, and at a time when the media is constantly reporting on when the next economic downturn will be, that’s truly meaningful,” Fagan says. “There’s hardly an area that isn’t experiencing problems with worsening storms, wildfires, droughts, floods and aging infrastructure.”
Make a lasting impact on people’s lives
When our customers call for help, they are experiencing one of the worst days in their life. That’s why we train our teams to be sensitive to the situation, and help guide them through a crisis. Put simply – customers are already going through enough duress. It is our job to make the process of restoration and remediation as stress-free as possible.
By putting our customers first, we have built a reputation in the communities where we operate. This has become evident by the number of referrals from customers telling us that our team made a lasting impact on their life.
“You have to have a servant’s heart to succeed,” Fagan says. “You’re going to see people in really dire situations and they’re going to be relying on you to help them. We can provide all the training in the world, but you must be in this business to make a difference, to treat people with respect and dignity, or it will not be the right fit for you.”
A successful business model built to scale
1-800 WATER DAMAGE’S business model is a low-investment, low startup cost opportunity that’s easy-to-scale, with initial franchise territories that can be tackled with one or two van set-ups.
We believe in offering entrepreneurs a low-investment franchise that is straightforward to run and easy to scale. And, because our services are in such high demand, the opportunity for growth is unprecedented.
“The most inspiring thing about 1-800 WATER DAMAGE is we help people who’ve always had a dream of opening their own business make it happen,” says Ken Osness, Vice President of Franchise Development with BELFOR Franchise Group. “In turn, our 1-800 WATER DAMAGE owners go into homes that are severely damaged. They must help people through a very traumatic time. It’s incredibly meaningful work, as the services we provide allow a family to feel safe in their own homes again.”
