ServiceMaster DSI, the nation's largest owner and operator of ServiceMaster Franchises, has announced the acquisition of a new corporate office in Tampa, Fla. This office will continue to provide disaster restoration services to home and business owners in Tampa and surrounding communities.

"We are excited to add this location as well as add to our footprint in Florida. With this addition, our footprint now grows to nine states and 20 locations," said President and CEO of ServiceMaster DSI, Andrew Yaklich. "This office is well established within the community and has operated very similarly to our business model. The leadership and workforce within this office have been well trained and successful and will not change."

ServiceMaster DSI operates under the ServiceMaster Restore and ServiceMaster Recovery Management (SRM) brands to provide disaster restoration services throughout the U.S. and abroad. Yaklich said this Tampa office will continue to offer restoration services for residential, commercial and large loss clients in the area.

"The Tampa office will allow us to expand our capacity for assisting commercial clients in the Florida area that find themselves in the path of frequent weather events,” Yaklich said. “This expanded reach will complement the work we do in Miami and will allow us to reach customers further north, whether that means restoring a property or the contents within."

Yaklich said this new location will continue to serve Tampa communities at a high standard. "We are thrilled to welcome these new employees to ServiceMaster DSI. We succeed because of the skills and strengths of our employees and their dedication to their communities."

Their dedication is apparent when responding to severe weather affecting the Tampa area, said Yaklich. "They allow us to respond quickly to catastrophic weather (CAT) events throughout the country and provide services efficiently. The addition of this well-established business and the highly trained staff is a huge win for DSI, all adding to our capacity to assist during CAT events like hurricanes, flooding, or severe weather. We are excited for the future of this new branch and to assist communities in and around Tampa."
