HAYWARD, Calif. — The independent licensed operators of Fabric Restoration Service Team (FRSTeam) franchises are reporting strong growth, with eight of 30 operators having expanded or planning to expand their territories and facilities, despite the current economic troubles.
“In this down economy, it’s very fulfilling to provide an opportunity to our independently licensed franchise operators to diversify and grow their businesses with our proven fabric-restoration services and business practices catering to insurers and loss-mitigation contractors,” says Jim Nicholas, president of FRSTeam.
FRSTeam licensees have experienced an average growth rate of more than 20% per year on their restoration work subsequent to joining FRSTeam, the company says.
In addition to the recent expansions, FRSTeam has also added five new independent licensees in the last year, and now offers restoration services in 39 states from 41 locations in the United States. The company also has an operator in Canada and an affiliate relationship with Johnson’s Fabric Restoration Services in the United Kingdom.
