Chem-Dry Flies High on


May 18, 2016

Chem-Dry has appeared on "best of" lists from leading review and rating provider yet again. The franchise ranker is a must-visit site for people who are researching franchises and for small business owners who want to expand their options.

Senior Vice President of Franchise Development for Chem-Dry Doug Smith says the company is always pleased when a trusted industry name such as FranchiseRankings recognizes the value of the Chem-Dry franchise program. Chem-Dry, Smith remarks, can spread the word about its value any time, but it's more meaningful when it comes from a third party with expertise in the franchise evaluation area.

At, a team produces rankings each month. The stats are compiled using an evaluation process that is unique to the company, but according to FranchiseRankings, the competitive advantages and core strengths of leading franchises across multiple industries are factored in. Both expansion and growth over the long term are considered success indicators.

All franchises are separated by industry, and from those, the team creates an overall "best of" list. Input from franchisees and clients are also used to determine rankings, alongside FranchiseRanking's internal scoring system.

Smith notes it's the combination of numbers and real input that makes Chem-Dry's rankings—coming in at No. 53 in Best Overall Franchises and at No. 2 in Best Janitorial Franchises for April of 2016—much more significant. Chem-Dry franchises aren't doing excellent work just to earn high rankings, according to Smith, but getting them does add value to the company.

Smith says the reason Chem-Dry makes repeated appearances at the top of lists like those on FranchiseRankings is the company's dedication to innovation. The trust people have in the Chem-Dry name, which was earned by decades of stellar work by owners, and its top-of-the-line cleaning and restoration services are what have made the company so successful.
