Carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise leader Chem-Dry experienced the demand for safe, quality, in-home cleaning services first-hand in 2021, leading the brand to leverage the surge in home services spending and provide a means for giving customers cleaner, drier, healthier alternatives to cleaning. The brand closes out a successful year in both franchise development and same-store-sales growth, having exceeded its expansion goal with 72 signed agreements and 65 openings.
"Many of our franchisees are labeling 2021 as their best year yet," said Ed Quinlan, President of Chem-Dry, part of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands. "The past year and a half has shown us just how much our customers are looking for home service capabilities from someone who is local, who they can trust in providing consistent and high-quality services. Our teams continue to work tirelessly to keep our brand and our franchisees ahead of the curve in providing innovative, personalized, high-quality care that delivers on our commitment to making spaces cleaner and healthier. We look forward to another year of growth as we help our franchisees strengthen their community relationships and continue to build on their tremendous success."

Over the next 12 months, the 44-year-old brand aims to further increase its North American coverage by adding 75 franchises across the United States and Canada, and expand its global footprint by signing four more international master franchises. Chem-Dry plans to meet this development milestone by mapping out its 2022 business theme, 'New World of Opportunities.'
