NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Due to the more than 140,000 water and fire damage claims in New York City per year, PuroClean has announced an immediate need to add three franchisees in Long Island and three franchisees in Manhattan to support the enormous volume of claims.
PuroClean—one of the nation’s fastest growing property restoration franchises—is flying a team of company executives into the Big Apple for two special missions. At the mobile discovery day events, aspiring entrepreneurs interested in responding to this unprecedented demand have an exclusive chance to meet PuroClean’s CEO and Chairman Mark W. Davis and franchise owner Jon Beever. Davis, who took the reins of the PuroClean in 2015, brings with him two decades of experience in restoration. The events are taking place during the following dates and times:
- Westbury: March 22, 2017 at 10 a.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn Westbury located at 1575 Privado Road in Westbury
- Manhattan/Midtown: March 22, 2017 at 3 p.m. at the Courtyard New York Manhattan/Midtown East located at 866 Third Avenue in Manhattan
“New York is one of our strongest growth markets, not only because it’s a bustling city with more than enough homes and offices for PuroClean’s phones to be ringing off the hook, but because New Yorkers are natural-born entrepreneurs,” Davis said. “Right now, our franchisees in the Big Apple are looking at more than 300 water damage claims and upwards of 70 fire damage claims a day. With the high number of claims, there is more work than we have PuroClean locations.”
PuroClean is concentrating on developing a few select markets nationwide where demand for restoration services is high. The company has more than 230 locations in its franchise network and projects to add nearly 60 new franchise offices this year.
Davis noted that while many people associate cleanup and restoration with large-scale natural disasters, a significant share of service calls stem from common household and business mishaps – such as overflowing washing machines; freezing, bursting or leaking pipes; mold growth that ensues after a water loss; and kitchen fires. Water damage is the second most frequently filed insurance claim in the United States, with more than 14,000 people experiencing a water damage emergency at home or work each day, according to the American Insurance Association. In fact, the restoration industry is $188 billion strong.
Each year, PuroClean performs thousands of jobs throughout North America, providing restoration services from common household mishaps to large scale disasters.
