NEW ORLEANS — FRSTeam by King Fine is opening a new FRSTeam fabric restoration location, called FRSTeam of Central and Southern Louisiana, to serve customers from Alexandria through southern Louisiana.
FRSTeam by King Fine and FRSTeam of Central and Southern Louisiana provide specialty fabric restoration cleaning for clothing, window coverings, taxidermy and textiles soiled by fire, smoke, water, mold and other contaminants.
Sean Chappell, owner of FRSTeam by King Fine, has more than six years of experience, having founded his first drycleaning business in Gulf Shores, Ala., in 2002, and expanded to four other locations.
In 2004, Chappell acquired an established drycleaner in Gulf Shores, La. “Just five months later, we were hit by Hurricane Ivan, which I initially thought was going to put me out of business, but actually had the opposite effect,” says Chappell. His work with customers in the hurricane’s aftermath led to his establishing a restoration business.
King Fine became part of the national Fabric Restoration Service Team (FRSTeam) franchise in 2008, servicing Panama City, Fla., to Baton Rouge, La.
As only the second fabric restoration provider in the Louisiana market, Chappell now looks forward to increasing his restoration reach with FRSTeam of Central and Southern Louisiana, he says. “I’ve had a pretty positive experience with FRSTeam. The system works, I like the people and the network is really good.”
