NASHVILLE—February 17, 2022­—Carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise Chem-Dry, part of the BELFOR Franchise Group family of brands, exceeded expectations for growth in 2021 with 72 signed franchise agreements and 65 openings. As demand for home services surged and with customers placing a higher value on cleaning during the pandemic, Chem-Dry saw a successful year in both franchise development and individual store sales growth. As a result, the brand has set a goal to add 75 franchises across the United States and Canada over the next 12 months while simultaneously expanding its global footprint by signing four more international master franchises. Chem-Dry plans to meet this development milestone by mapping out its 2022 business theme, ‘New World of Opportunities.’

“Many of our franchisees are labeling 2021 as their best year yet,” said Ed Quinlan, president of Chem-Dry. “The past year and a half has shown us just how much our customers are looking for home service capabilities from someone who is local, who they can trust in providing consistent and high-quality services. Our teams continue to work tirelessly to keep our brand and our franchisees ahead of the curve in providing innovative, personalized, high-quality care that delivers on our commitment to making spaces cleaner and healthier. We look forward to another year of growth as we help our franchisees strengthen their community relationships and continue to build on their tremendous success.”

In its 44th year, Chem-Dry currently serves more than 11,000 homes and businesses each day across 55 countries. While Chem-Dry continues to grow its global footprint, the company remains focused on the local success of its individual franchisees. Part of the brand’s 2022 vision forward centers on empowering franchisees with additional revenue streams to bolster growth and meet the demands of today’s modern customer.

Chem-Dry relies on proprietary equipment and solutions for carpet, upholstery, granite countertops and hard floor surfaces, such as wood, tile, and laminates. In further testing of its processes, a study conducted by a leading independent laboratory concluded that the Chem-Dry Hot Carbonating Extraction cleaning method removes an average of 98% of common household allergens from carpets and upholstery. Chem-Dry has a national partnership with the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA), working to raise awareness and provide education on the importance of indoor air quality in maintaining the health and safety of homes and businesses.

Recently, Chem-Dry was recognized as one of the top 500 franchises in Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® for its outstanding performance in unit growth, financial strength and stability, and overall brand power. To meet the growing demand for its services, the company is actively seeking community-minded entrepreneurs to join the mission of delivering safer, healthier spaces across the globe.

Territories are available in prime markets nationwide with training and support for franchisees. For more information about the franchise opportunity, call 877-450-4874 or visit
