Commercial and residential restoration franchise Delta Disaster Services plans to add another 300 franchises in the next few years. Earlier this year, the company was acquired by HRI Holdings, Inc. (HRI), parent company to the Chem-Dry® Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning and N-Hance® Wood Refinishing franchise businesses. Through HRI’s acquisition, Delta Disaster Services is able to market its franchise opportunity to the 1,100 existing Chem-Dry and N-Hance franchisees in the United States and Canada.
Dan Tarantin, president and CEO of HRI, said “We’ve proven our ability to scale franchise businesses both nationally and internationally, and the residential and commercial services industry is our sweet spot. HRI has the experience, resources, and proven systems and processes to drive a successful large-scale national expansion of the Delta Disaster Services brand. When you combine that with the strong foundation and franchise model that the Delta Disaster Services team has built, we’re confident we can grow the brand to become a national force within property restoration.”
“The Delta Disaster Services franchise model is appealing to entrepreneurs for several reasons, including the fact that our industry is nearly recession-proof,” said Mike Mastous, founder and president of Delta Disaster Services. “We maintain strong relationships with insurance companies and third party administrators that not only helps existing franchisees but will also greatly benefit new buyers. One of our biggest competitive advantages is our market-leading, integrated communications and job management platform that allows for seamless real-time communication and improved cash-flow management. Finally, the education process and training we provide and require for all franchisees is second-to-none and puts our professionals in the top one percent of restoration companies nationally.”
