While retail drycleaning sales are declining nationwide, FRSTeam Fabric Restoration franchises are seeing strong growth in their specialty restoration cleaning business. Eight of the 30 operators have expanded or are now planning to expand their territories and facilities by opening new FRSTeam locations devoted exclusively to fabric and fire restoration.

“It is very exciting to see that eight of our current 30 independent licensees, or more than 25 percent, have chosen to invest further in growing the restoration side of their drycleaning businesses under FRSTeam during the last two years,” said Jim Nicholas, president of FRSTeam.  “In this down economy, it is very fulfilling to provide an opportunity to our independently licensed franchise operators to diversify and grow their businesses with our proven fabric restoration services and business practices catering to insurers and loss mitigation contractors.”
