This website and its content are not an offer to sell franchises. It is presented for information purposes only. Offerings for Franchise sales are only made by a Franchise Disclosure Document, as required by the United States Federal Trade Commission. Several states require that we register our FDD or qualify for an exemption, and we will not offer or sell franchises in those states until registration or we are exempt. Registration or exemption does not constitute approval, recommendation or endorsement of the information in the FDD or our website by any state or the FTC.
Since 1967, SERVPRO has been helping individuals realize their dreams of business ownership. Our tried-and-true brand, system and support allow people from diverse educational, vocational and financial backgrounds to take control of their own futures, building a business molded around personal goals and lifestyle. Owning a SERVPRO Franchise is an opportunity to take advantage of our proven track record while being in business for yourself, but never by yourself.
There are several benefits to Franchising besides the independence that comes along with business ownership.
Quick Start. Franchising offers the advantage of starting a new business quickly based on a proven business formula.
Expansion. Franchisees are able to develop their businesses to a significantly higher level due to the help of provided expertise.
Training. Franchisors often offer Franchisees in-depth training, which is not generally available when starting a business.
One of our Servpro Franchise Expansion Representatives will contact you to schedule a phone call to address your initial questions as well as gather some additional information about your interest in joining the Servpro family. This is also a good time to inform us if you are seeking to purchase an existing Servpro franchise ”resale” or a new Servpro territory franchise.
Here you will complete and submit a Request for Consideration (RFC) form and supply additional information as needed such as resumes, financial statements, tax return/s, etc., for our confidential review.
For persons interested in purchasing a Servpro Franchise for the first time, we will provide you a link to our Franchise Candidate survey, through which you will be invited to complete a confidential survey online. This program integrates and utilizes seven different franchisee behavioral dimensions into one simple assessment, which helps us get to know you better.
In this step of the process, we continue to assist you in gaining a better understanding of the Servpro opportunity from differing perspectives. Your Franchise Expansion Representative will answer any remaining questions and assist you as you continue your due diligence.
You will be asked to speak with current Servpro Franchisees (our validation step) who are the best resource for understanding what Servpro is about. Consistent with Federal Trade Commission regulations, they will be your resource for information about earnings. Servpro does not provide financial representations to prospective franchisees.
You will also be invited to complete a site visit, and attend our “Meet the Team Day” with a visit to Servpro’s Headquarters located in Gallatin, TN.
We will send you a link to Servpro’s Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which is a standardized report, updated annually, describing in detail the Servpro Franchise opportunity, the status of the company, franchisee and franchisor obligations, typical costs to open a Servpro Franchise, an outline of our extensive training program, etc.
This important and required step will prepare you for your next call with your Franchise Expansion Representative assigned to you with the objective to discuss all your remaining questions following your review of our FDD.
Our Franchise Review Board is comprised of the Servpro Executive Team. Each file is prepared, discussed and individually reviewed and considered by our Review Board. For new sales, it is at this point that we may also explore the possibility of financing through Servpro.
Financing is subject to approval by Servpro’s Executive Approval Committee and when approved extended for new sale acquisition only. Note there are many other non-Servpro financing options to include working with the Small Business Administration (SBA).
If you are pursuing an existing franchise, or purchasing a resale, additional information may be requested/required as part of the Franchise Review Board process.
Once all parties reach a mutual agreement to move forward, we will prepare and send franchise paperwork for your execution. Upon receipt of your executed license paperwork, appropriate funds and documentation of working capital, your acquisition is finalized.
When all parties reach a mutual agreement to move forward, we will prepare and send the necessary documentation to begin our Business Development Process (BDP).
At this point, a Franchise Business Consultant specifically assigned to you and a dedicated team of support personnel will begin to assist you in preparation for Servpro’s New Franchise Training Program.

Since 1967, SERVPRO has been redefining the restoration industry. In addition to ongoing training at the regional level, we developed the National Training Center in 1992 to teach restoration and mitigation skills to Franchise Owners and insurance industry employees.
Branding is important for every successful company, and, thanks to national media coverage, our Brand is known across the country for being trustworthy and able to help make damage “Like It Never Even Happened.” SERVPRO is the only national restoration company that maintains a consistent national advertising program while leveraging top-tier sponsorships, strengthening our position as a leader in the commercial and residential restoration industry.

Using specific socioeconomic and demographic mapping criteria factoring in total population and poverty levels to get a net population amount; combined with the ability to meet certain SERVPRO® service level response requirements.
