The corporate office of Paul Davis Restoration, Inc. one of the top franchise companies in the industry, was recently named as one of Florida’s Best Companies To Work For in the upcoming August issue of Florida Trend magazine. In addition, the company recently ranked on the Top 10 Franchises to Buy in 2020, in Franchise Times Magazine, the Bible of the franchise community.

Paul Davis President and CEO Rich Wilson commented on the honor. “Our mission at Paul Davis is to provide opportunities for great people to achieve best in class results.  This is who we are and what we stand for.  Everything emanates from the people that comprise the Paul Davis team.  That’s why “We Are Paul Davis!”

To participate, companies or government entities had to employ at least 15 workers in Florida and have been in operation at least one year. Companies that chose to participate underwent an evaluation of their workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems, and demographics. The process also included a survey to measure employee satisfaction. The combined scores determined the top companies and the final ranking.

"This year it was appropriate to focus on how the Best Companies to Work For responded to the impact of the coronavirus,” said Mark Howard, Executive Editor of Florida Trend Magazine. “The companies we report on found creative ways to keep their businesses going while supporting their employees and continuing to serve their customers."

In addition to their normal services, Paul Davis has been extremely busy since March. All locations have prioritized appointments to aid businesses, schools, shops, community centers and other structures to re-open safely by cleaning and applying disinfectant to all surfaces according to CDC guidelines. The goal right now is to make areas and spaces safe to return to when the right time comes. Many Paul Davis offices have and are still donating time, materials, and labor to clean the facilities and vehicles of first responders. Firetrucks and police vehicles have lined up each weekend for the last three months at Paul Davis locations across the country. A TouchLessService™ protocol has been put in place and it includes the use of masks, social distancing, and applying disinfectant to equipment and highly touched surfaces, among other measures to ensure the safety of personnel and clients.
