AdvantaClean franchise owners make a lasting impression on the people they help. On any given day, AdvantaClean owners are on the phone with a person in their community experiencing a crisis that relates to water damage, dangerous mold growth, indoor air quality issues and more. The reason our customers prefer AdvantaClean over other brands in the $210 billion restoration industry is that our franchise owners are experts in helping home and property owners find solutions to these unwanted problems, and they perform their jobs with integrity, compassion, and urgency.
Long-time franchise owner with the top-rated environmental services franchise highlighted by local publication
While our franchisees are the local experts their communities rely on, they often join AdvantaClean without any experience in the restoration industry. This is why Hal Goodtree, a writer for the Cary Citizen, a publication serving the growing suburb of Raleigh, North Carolina, chose to write about Mark England, a longtime AdvantaClean franchise owner.
“Mark England represents a significant group of people in Cary. He’s a one-time tech worker who decided to leave the corporate world and start his own small business,” Goodtree writes in the article. “Mark’s journey is part of a larger trend in Cary: former tech workers who lose enthusiasm or get pushed out of their corporate jobs. Some hit the bricks and get another gig. But many decide to leave the corporate life and start something of their own.”
Goodtree asks England why he didn’t choose to open a “yogurt franchise or fund the next wunderkind startup,” when he decided to become one of the first AdvantaClean franchise owners eight years ago.
“I wanted to do something to help people,” England says in the article. “My first job is to give people some sense of security. They want to know what needs to be done and how to get things back under control.”
England’s answer exactly aligns with the core values guiding the entire AdvantaClean network. Our franchisees live and breathe our motto, C.A.R.E.S., which is a continuous reminder of the qualities we aspire to as a brand that helps people when they need it most:
We make a difference in the community one person, family, friend or neighbor at a time.
We do more than is expected, by our own choice, and our own will.
We treat others as we would like to be treated.
We set high standards and rise to them.
We meet others’ needs with a servant’s heart.
We encourage you to read the entire article, which includes England opening up about his worst jobs (think Breaking Bad), as well as more information on his experience with AdvantaClean.
