OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--With zero franchisees serving the over $289 million in direct water and fire mitigated losses in Oklahoma City each year, PuroClean has announced plans to add two new franchises in the market to support this enormous volume of claims.
PuroClean—one of the nation’s fastest growing property restoration franchises—is flying a team of company executives into the state for a special mission on Wednesday, April 12. At the mobile discovery day event, aspiring entrepreneurs interested in responding to this unprecedented demand have an exclusive chance to meet PuroClean’s CEO and Chairman Mark W. Davis and local franchise owner, Jim Bauer. Davis, who took the reins of the PuroClean in 2015, will be bringing with him two decades of experience in restoration.
The event will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Bricktown, located at 328 East Sheridan Ave in Oklahoma City. The first session will take place at 10 a.m., while the second will be at 1 p.m.
“Oklahoma City is an economic pillar of the Sooner State. The state’s economy is booming, yet there isn’t anyone to clean and rebuild in times of distress, and that’s where PuroClean comes in,” Davis said. “Oklahoma City is seeing 8,024 annual water damage claims and 1,765 annual fire damage claims. PuroClean is looking for dedicated, community-oriented entrepreneurs who want to help local business owners and home owners overcome any natural disaster or crisis that hinders them.”
PuroClean is concentrating on developing a few select markets nationwide where demand for restoration services is high. PuroClean 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.
