Reaching 2000 SERVPRO franchises
In 1046 10 large carpet cleaning company founded the National Institute of Rug Cleaning (NIRC) which then later was rebranded 3 time, but it was in the 1960’s when it was rebranded from NIRC to The Association of Interior Decor Specialist that the restoration industry really began. Since then so many changes and additions have happened. Since the beginning of the industry SERVPRO came to be in 1967 by Ted and Doris Isaacson as a painting company but because of their background and experience in the restoration industry they turned it into exactly that. A restoration company with franchise opportunities.
Since then, SERVPRO has grown so much and franchised have been opened up all over the U.S. and Canada. All strategically placed so that whenever there is a loss, they can get to it as soon as possible.
It hasn’t been too long ago when I was saying that there were around 1,900 franchises currently open. Actually, I just said it at a presentation about two months ago and just a few days ago SERVPRO did their 200th SERVPRO episode announcing that they had just sold their 2000 plus 1 franchise! We currently have 2001 franchises and growing.
