Service Team Of Professionals, Inc. ("STOP") Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2022

Background

Water, Smoke and Fire Damage Repair

In this world of many, many cleaning and restoration franchises to choose from, S.T.O.P. offers two reliable sources to help you decide on the best one for you:
1) Our published earnings claims; and
2) Our franchisee validation.

Published Earnings Claims

Our earnings claims show that our franchisees nearly triple the average sales of other cleaning franchise groups. Our franchisees are happy. We beg you to call them! They enjoy S.T.O.P. and are glad to hear from franchise shoppers like yourself.

Throughout the 1970's and 1980's, business consultant Mack Clark was called on by disaster restoration firms big and small to bring these companies better profitability and growth. Hundreds of firms, from one-man armies to multi-million dollar companies, worked with Mack to streamline their operations, gain market share, and increase profit. In 1996, Mack decided to offer his experience and expertise to start-up entrepreneurs via the franchise format. Service Team Of Professionals ("S.T.O.P.") was born.

Franchisee Validation

Now over 40 franchises strong, S.T.O.P. works hand in hand with its franchisees, starting each relationship with this statement: "Our best franchisees call us the most." We know how to build restoration companies. After your initial training, you'll have on-call consulting and attend three training conventions each year. We'll become very close.

You get the whole package with S.T.O.P. so you can offer the whole package. Insurance companies favor those that perform water, smoke AND fire damage repair. Insurance agents and adjusters do not want to act as general contractors, splitting up the job between dry-down and construction companies. One call gets it all when they do business with STOP. In addition, your territory is the largest offered in the franchise world and is truly "protected."

Master Business Planning

You will separate yourself from your competition with our Master Business Planning?, marketing techniques and time-tested business systems. Our systems will show you how to restore houses right the first time, to streamline efficiency and communication, and create a healthy bottom line (plus a thousand other benefits like attracting and keeping great employees). S.T.O.P. leaves no stone unturned when it comes to training you and constantly helping you grow your company.
