We’re Family - Dryer Vent Wizard is one of the top home-based franchise opportunities available in the market today. Our owners experience the freedom of being their own boss in a business that provides:
- Great margins
- Family friendly hours
- A protected territory
Even with all of the outstanding benefits listed above, we hear time and time again that franchisees chose our opportunity because of the “family feel” when interacting with the home office and Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees.
The Market - The home services industry is a $20 billion market, and Dryer Vent Wizard is a unique home service that cannot be ignored. Approximately 80% of all U.S. households have a clothes dryer. These dryers all have vents that over time will clog, become inefficient, and are potential fire hazards. Because of these problems, consumer service sales have grown by 20%+ each year for the past three years.
Insurance companies and consumers alike are beginning to realize that clogged dryer vents are responsible for many house fires. In 2012, these clogged dryer vents caused over 15,000 documented fires.
Severely clogged dryer vents will prevent the dryer from drying clothes altogether. Homeowners will call a costly appliance repairman only to find that the problem isn’t the dryer… it’s the vent! Repair centers refer those customers to us. After their clogged vents have been serviced by one of our franchisees, customers can potentially expect a savings of approximately $18 to $24 per month off of their energy bill. Vent cleaning becomes a need, not a want.
Getting Started - We know that a franchisee’s success is our success. And since we created this business category, our training is designed specifically for this industry. The support we offer is based on our business model and comes directly from experts who actually own and operate one of our franchises. That’s why our training and support attracts serious people who want to take the next step in owning a trusted business with a proven track record. Our franchisees feel like family from the beginning, as they receive the complete training and on-going support of the DVW systems.
- Five days of classroom training at the home office, located in Farmington Hills, MI. During this time we cover all aspects of the business.
- Three to five days of field training in Charlotte, NC. What better way to learn than to actually experience all of the action?
- Ongoing support from the home office. Our professional team is available and waiting to help our franchisees grow their business.
- A network of seasoned franchisees who love to help each other become even more successful.
Booking Appointments – Successfully starting an owner-operated, home-based business requires hard work, detailed planning, and a way to take a lot of phone calls to continue booking business. These phone calls can be difficult for the average owner trying to make their start. The typical options are answering the phone at inopportune times (while with a customer) or hiring staff to handle the calls (can be very expensive). Neither of these options seem like a great plan, and with a DVW franchise you do not need to worry about either.
Our National Scheduling Center is located right in our corporate headquarters in Farmington Hills, MI and is staffed from 8:30 am EST to 9:00 pm EST Monday through Friday and from 9:30 am EST to 5:00 pm EST on Saturdays. Any calls that come in after hours are transferred to our live answering service so customers are still speaking with a live person.
Our well-trained and knowledgeable scheduling center representatives handle all of the incoming calls for our entire system of franchisees across the nation. This professional staff answers questions and books appointments using our web based calendaring system that all franchisees use to manage their weekly schedules.
