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 and renew hardwood floors and has grown to include refinishing cabinetry, furniture and trim work.
Through innovative research and development, Chem-Dry devised simple and effective processes to clean carpets and floors. HRI created N-Hance with the same principles in mind — innovation, simplicity and efficient methods.
Chem-Dry had more than 20 years of franchise and business experience before HRI launched N-Hance. This proved to be a great advantage to N-Hance because there was less of a 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 and quickly realized that many companies can sand the finish right off the floors and refinish them. But very few offer the broad line of products that coincide with other finishes and cleaners.
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 a complete line of products and processes in place. Our network strength aids our entire organization into the evolution of a world-class company.
The Network’s Current State
The N-Hance organization is stronger than ever before and is experiencing more growth every year. In 2013, N-Hance had 220 units. In 2014, we had 310 units. As of today, there are more than 475 franchises in the United States and Canada. 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 and 10 percent of the territories available in Canada.
The potential for growth is even stronger internationally, where N-Hance has the potential to outcompete and outperform the competition through our revolutionary business model, proprietary products and patented technology. We haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of our potential around the world, but through our relationships with entrepreneurs like you, we plan on growing by hundreds of locations in the coming years.
The days of completely gutting and replacing cabinets or floors are over. With N-Hance franchises, more frequent, affordable and quality updates are possible. We are changing the way people think about remodeling.
