HOODZ Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022


The Hoodz service franchise offers complete cleaning of kitchen exhaust equipment. The market for this service is quite large because it expands to cover two different areas. Both institutional and commercial customers have a need for this specialized service in order to keep their grills, ranges, and cook top stoves in proper working order. General cleaning service customers are also ideal candidates because this specialized feature is a reasonable extension to their existing service requests. Regular visits and inspections can also uncover potential problems that can be proactively addressed.

One reason Hoodz is such a successful franchise is the unique ability to specialize in a specific industry but also be flexible enough to expand into new territories. Other than kitchen exhaust cleaning, Hoodz service options include everything from concrete cleaning to exhaust fan hinge installation. Fast food restaurants and fine dining establishments both have similar needs to maintain their facilities. Grease traps and exhaust systems appear in both kitchens and must be maintained in much the same way. The ability to fill various service needs for the restaurant industry, as well as other institutional settings, allows Hoodz to be a full service provider in the market place.
