Are you interested in signing up and becoming a member of the Chem-Dry family? We understand starting a business is a huge decision, which is why we want to make sure you have intimate knowledge of the business before you sign up. Look over our next steps towards buying in to the Chem-Dry carpet cleaning brand and request more information to get started.
Request More Information
When you have researched us online and are interested enough to begin a conversation with us, filling out the form will move you to the next step, which is an initial “meet and greet” phone call with a Chem-Dry franchise development director. We’ll be in touch with you shortly after you fill out the form to schedule an appointment.
Meet and Greet Call
At your convenience, we will conduct a 15-minute “meet and greet” call with you. We will learn about your motivations and resources to pursue Chem-Dry ownership as well as initially qualify you for the opportunity, including determining territory availability. If we both agree to move forward, you will take part in an in-depth webinar. We will also send you a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) via email or drop a copy of it in the mail to you.
A webinar is a web-presented, 30- to 40-minute PowerPoint slideshow you can view while on the phone, followed by an open Q&A. This is an orderly introduction to what we do, how we do it, and what’s in it for you. You are welcome to invite guests or friends to the webinar.
Review our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)
After the webinar, we will schedule our third phone call to review the FDD in depth and step by step to answer any questions you may have.
Talk to Franchisees, Field Visit and Research
This is by far the most important step. We don’t want you to take our word for it; we want you to talk to other franchise owners and get a feel for our community and our culture. We encourage prospective franchisees to contact existing franchise owners. They are exceedingly generous and open about what they do and how they do it. We recommend that you make a field visit to a franchisee without a salesperson present. We know you’ll like what you see! This step concludes with a mutual evaluation to decide if the fit is right for both of us.
When you sign and return the FDD receipt, a 14-day clock starts ticking. The FTC mandates a two-week waiting period before you finalise your deal. We’ll deliver your completed agreements for the territory you selected. When you’re ready, you sign the contracts and start the next chapter of your life!
