PuroClean, a leading North American property restoration company with more than 230 franchisees, announced that they plan to expand into the European market through Master Franchise Agreements. PuroClean Chairman and CEO Mark Davis will be available to discuss this unique entrepreneurial opportunity during Franchise Show Ireland, RDS, Merrion Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin, Ireland, Sept. 9 and 10. The company will have a booth (#404) and PuroClean co-founder Rory O’Dwyer will be a featured speaker during the International Franchising seminars.
PuroClean franchisees provide mitigation and restoration services to homeowners and businesses whose properties have been damaged by water, mold, fire and natural disasters. In addition, PuroClean is the restoration partner of choice for many North American insurance companies and property managers.
After conducting an in-depth analysis of various countries across the globe, PuroClean identified a significant need for its range of services and world-class property restoration in the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain as well as other European countries. The company plans to penetrate the approximately €302 billion in property claims across Europe through the Master Franchise model.
The expansion is spearheaded by Davis, co-founder of Belfor in the United States, along with Hans Joerg Tschudi, who built Belfor into a worldwide brand, along with several PuroClean executives with experience operating restoration companies in Europe. Belfor is the world’s largest disaster restoration company with more than 300 offices in 26 countries worldwide and covers more than 90 percent of global insured markets. Davis and Tschudi bring their decades of experience in expanding Belfor globally to strategically grow PuroClean.
“PuroClean’s proven track record of growing franchise businesses that provide expert, certified property restoration in the United States and Canada, coupled with our solid infrastructure and resources, make us the ideal franchise to provide property restoration services in Europe,” Davis said. “We’re excited to provide entrepreneurs in Europe with the opportunity to stake their claim in the European restoration industry.”
The right European entrepreneurs will be attracted to PuroClean’s recession-proof format that aids the insurance claims industry by adding new, competent, well-trained and well-equipped service providers in each country. Other benefits of becoming a Master Franchisee in Europe include:
  • The company’s proven business model
  • Access to proven systems, policies and procedures
  • Assuming the role of the franchisor in your area/country
  • Autonomy to develop your area/country while still having support
  • Recruit, screen and train your franchisees, who then develop their area in a similar way, accelerating growth
  • Receiving support to develop specific expansion plans
  • Unlimited growth potential from an on-demand industry
  • Personal fulfillment from assisting and servicing communities in times of need
“The ideal candidates should be entrepreneurs who embody what PuroClean stands for – making a tremendous impact on the communities they serve by offering essential services that help property owners in their time of need,” Davis continued. “They should clearly understand the franchisor/franchisee relationship in addition to the training and support process for franchisees.”
