Chem-Dry names its franchisee of the year

Chem.-Dry, the carpet & upholstery cleaning franchise, have announced Bury-based family business Finesse Chem-dry as the winner of their UK franchisee of the year 2008 award. This award recognises franchisees who have built successful split businesses at Chem-Dry’s annual conference at Bournemouth.

Peter Foster, owner of the Bury franchise and his family got a chance to attend the Chem-Dry’s international convention in Hawaii along with the cash prize.

According to Peter Foster, he was pleased that the UK Chem-Dry master franchise has recognised and rewarded his team’s effort. The UK franchise network of Chem-Dry is blessed with a knowledge sharing culture. Peter felt that he and his family are lucky because they have some good friends within Chem-Dry whom they approached when they needed advice. Peter Foster’s franchise has developed and come a long way since the launch of the business 14 years ago.

During this period, the business experienced significant changes along with the recent investment of CTS 300 truck mount carpet and upholstery cleaning system and the decision to split the business in two different functions. This change gave business the much needed momentum.
