What Makes The Best Smart Carpet Franchise Owner
The Best Smart Carpet Franchise Owner
Smart Carpet is a rapidly expanding carpet cleaning franchise with a revolutionary cleaning method, a streamlined business model, and years of experience at our backs. CEO Robert Valois has spent the last thirty years developing a product and franchise model that could sweep the market and rewrite the rules of the industry, and we couldn’t be more excited for what’s ahead.
Valued at over $7 billion a year annually, according to IBIS World, the carpet cleaning industry is a massive and ever-growing industry, and the business opportunity couldn’t be greater. If you’re a driven entrepreneur, the time is now, and the potential is great to join the Smart Carpet franchise team. So what makes a good Smart Carpet franchise owner? We like to think of it as three essential qualities.
1. A Desire to Be Your Own Boss
Owning your own business is a big commitment, but if you’re self-motivated and driven, you’re on the right track. So many entrepreneurs have left traditional careers to discover freedom and independence in franchising. As a franchise owner with Smart Carpet, you’re in charge of your own schedule and earning potential. You set your own hours, hire your own employees, and maintain relationships with your customers.
We know how fulfilling it can be to run your own business, so we’ve designed our franchise model to allow you as much freedom as you’d like, while also being there for support whenever you need it. Though franchise partners come from many different walks of life, an essential shared quality is an appreciation for independence, and a desire to reach their greatest potential as entrepreneurs.
2. A People Person
One of the great joys – and also responsibilities – of being your own boss in this industry is the close personal relationships you get to create and cultivate. Simply put, you gotta be a people person. From building out your team of employees, training and managing them, you’ll be in charge of maintaining a healthy ecosystem in your business. This is true internally, and also with your clients.
One great advantage of franchising with Smart Carpet vs. going it alone in business is that you get to inherit our established brand identity. However, it comes down to each franchise owner to maintain their customer base. Smart Carpet takes a very targeted approach to our business model. We focus exclusively on commercial spaces, which we believe allows us to offer a more specialized product, and also gives us a leg up over other carpet cleaning companies, which generally spread themselves thin trying to service every possible residential and commercial space. That being said, there is still a wide variety of settings franchisees find themselves in. One of the main skills in this business is understanding how to best orient yourself from one social setting to another. If you’re able to leave a customer feeling understood and happy, there’s a great chance they’ll call on you again the next time they need cleaning.
3. A Want to Help Your Community
The traditional carpet cleaning method, known as hot water extraction or “steam cleaning,” essentially gives your carpets a bath in hot water. Although steam cleaning is the dominant method in the industry, it actually creates lots of problems. For one, the excess amount of water used is not only wasteful and unnecessary, but allows mildew and bacteria to grow in the carpet backing, wears out the carpet fibers, and perhaps most importantly, takes hours and sometimes even days to dry completely. While this long dry time might not be the end of the world in a residential setting, it can create all kinds of logistical problems in places like assisted living facilities and retail spaces. Think of how disruptive it can be in those spaces to put operations on pause while you wait for your carpets to dry out.
With Smart Carpet, we’ve invented a revolutionary cleaning method that uses 90% less water, and harnesses the power of static electricity to extract dirt from your carpets. As a result, your carpets are dry and ready to be used again as soon as we’re done cleaning. Not only does this greatly benefit our customers, the time and resources saved allows our franchises to service more clients than our competitors, and at better price points, lower labor costs, and better margins. There’s benefits in every direction. In the end, what Smart Carpet does is provide a valuable service to your community. Our franchise network creates well-paying jobs, and our unique cleaning method helps businesses and commercial spaces keep their carpets clean and their doors open. An integral part of the Smart Carpet franchise culture is a drive to help their community as best they can, and we’re proud to have designed a business that’s as community and service-oriented as ours.
