The N-Hance Story
Born out of the same company that launched the world’s largest carpet cleaning franchise, N-Hance franchises are ready for prime time
N-Hance was started by HRI, the company behind Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning. In the early 2000s, many Chem-Dry franchise owners began to notice their technicians were walking across thousands of damaged wood floors. N-Hance franchises began as a separate business to refinish hardwood floors and has grown to include refinishing cabinetry, furniture and trim work.
Through research and development, Chem-Dry devised simple, effective processes to clean carpets and upholstery. HRI created N-Hance with the same principles in mind — innovation, simplicity and efficient methods.
Chem-Dry had over 20 years of business experience before HRI launched N-Hance. As a result, this eliminated the learning curve — N-Hance avoided the “we-wish-we-would-haves” that often accompany starting a new business.
We launched beta franchises in the Salt Lake area from 2001 to 2003. We quickly realized that many companies can sand and refinish floors, but very few offer the broad line of products and patented processes that N-Hance developed.
In 2006, we launched N-Hance on a national level. We have learned a lot since then, and we have developed a proven system that fosters successful owners, satisfied customers, and simply good business.
There has never been a better time to be in business with N-Hance. We have the most thorough training, dedicated corporate team, and advanced products and processes in place. Our network strength aids our entire organization in the evolution of a world-class company.
The Network’s Current State
The N-Hance organization is stronger than ever before. N-Hance is continually ranked one of the fastest growing franchises. In 2013, N-Hance had 220 units. In 2014, we had 310 units. As of today, there are more than 500 franchises in the United States. At the corporate level, we have 20 dedicated team members in the sales, marketing, business management and training departments.
Projections for the Future
One advantage of being a fairly new company is the huge opportunity for growth. We have sold only about 35 percent of our inventory of available territories in the United States.
