Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I start an N-Hance business?
We encourage you to do your homework when deciding which business to invest in. Our franchisees know there are many benefits to owning an N-Hance business that other franchise systems simply do not have. For starters, we know franchising. We are the same company that started the Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning franchise over 35 years ago and have grown it into the worlds largest carpet cleaning company. Our N-Hance franchise owners receive the same world-class support that enabled us to grow Chem-Dry to over 4,000 franchises worldwide.
Secondly, N-Hance offers industry-low start-up costs with in-house financing! We have never wanted high initial costs to get in the way of passionate business owners joining the N-Hance family.
Thirdly, N-Hance franchisees offer customers what no one else can. Anyone who has had their hardwood floor sanded and refinished or their kitchen cabinets remodeled understands the incredible hassle and astronomical cost of doing so. Our proprietary methods and product line enable you to give customers the same results, at a fraction of the price.
Lastly, N-Hance is the only wood refinishing company that has a partnership with The Home Depot. This means that local Home Depot stores not only give you marketing power and credibility, but actually send leads directly to you. This partnership is only one part of the N-Hance business, but can certainly help you hit the ground running. Learn more about our partnership with the Home Depot here.
How much is the franchise investment?
We offer major financial benefits over other franchise companies: In-house financing, low start-up costs, and protected, exclusive territories. The typical franchise start-up cost is based on the population of your territory, but may look something like this:: $30,067 ( Average Initial license fee, based on population and equipment packages ) + , everything you need to get your business up and running) = $41,067-$72,067 (Total initial franchise investment) The basic payment schedule breaks down like this:
How much money can I make with N-Hance?
You may have discovered that in the franchise world, it’s hard to get a company to tell you exactly how much money you can make. This is not because we have anything to hide, but rather, we are only legally able to talk about earnings in the form of what is called the Item 19. This is a section of our official Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) that we’d be happy to send you if you’re interested (either a printed OR electronic copy). The Item 19 will tell you how much N-Hance franchise owners have earned in the past by breaking them into quartiles. You can learn a lot from this document and we are more than happy to walk through it with you on a one-on-one basis.
Who are my customers?
A potential N-Hance customer is anyone looking to refinish their hardwood floors, kitchen cabinets, wooden furniture/trim, and other wood surfaces in the home or office. N-Hance business owners delight customers with how quickly and conveniently they can refinish wood surfaces, even offering complete color changes to provide a whole new look! The results truly speak for themselves; we have hundreds of before and after photos from completed N-Hance jobs all over the country. For access to these photos, just send us an inquiry here.
Who is my competition?
For each service you will provide as an N-Hance business owner, you will have different competitors, but NO ONE will have a more comprehensive wood refinishing offering. For Wood Floor Renewal, you will likely compete with traditional sanding and refinishing companies who take an average of 2-3 weeks to complete jobs you can do in a day. For cabinetry, you will compete with cabinet makers and cabinet re-facers (applying new cabinet doors while keeping the boxes intact). Both of these types of companies take much longer and cost much more than N-Hance. This is an overview of our competition, but if you have more questions, feel free to contact us.
Who am I in business with?
While we do have a national partnership with The Home Depot, every N-Hance franchise is an independently owned and operated business. Our franchise owners service customers that come through The Home Depot, but also service customers that come from their own marketing efforts. As an N-Hance franchisee, you own your business, plain and simple. Please contact us if you have more questions about this.
How good is the support I'll receive?
One of the first things our franchisees discover about N-Hance is that our corporate team is dedicated to helping our franchises grow. We know that it is our 125 franchise owners who keep us in business, and that is why we make ourselves available to them all hours of the day and night. Every area of your business is covered, from technical work to marketing. On top of that, as an N-Hance business owner, you join a national network of business owners going through the same things as you, so you are never alone.

What is our relationship with The Home Depot?
N-Hance became an official service of Home Depot in 2009. We have in-store signage and lead-generation programs in about 1400 of the total 1900 Home Depot store in the U.S. Our franchise owners benefit directly from this partnership by servicing customers that come through local Home Depot stores and through their website. We are currently working hard to fill the remaining 500 stores and are looking for the right franchise owners in these key markets to open N-Hance businesses there. Home Depot has invested over $1,000,000 for in-store merchandising, print advertising, and associate trainings. We value our illustrious relationship with Home Depot because of the great brand visibility they offer. This asset has proven to be invaluable to our franchise owners. Learn More
How do territories work?
As an N-Hance franchise owner, you’ll have a protected, exclusive territory with a renewable 5 year agreement. The franchise fees are based on the population of your territory. An initial license fee of $1,000 per 8,000 persons located in the Franchised Area (the initial license fee typically ranges from $15,000 to $40,000). There is more to purchasing an N-Hance Franchise than the rights to all of N-Hance’s industry leading features; you’re also purchasing the right to every customer in your franchised area. This gives you the peace of mind that no other N-Hance franchise has the ability to market, attract, or service any potential customer in your area. Consequently, the N-Hance brand has become a national force with franchise owners working together to strengthen and grow our business. Find out if there are available territories near you!
