Entrepreneur Names Chem-Dry to Prestigious Franchise 500 List for Incredible 25th Straight Year
Small Business Bible Honors Chem-Dry as Top Carpet Cleaner on Franchise 500 List

NASHVILLE, TN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/24/13 -- Chem-Dry, the world's largest carpet cleaning company, has made Entrepreneur magazine's annual Franchise 500 list of top franchise opportunities for the 25th consecutive year, a feat almost unheard of in the competitive franchise industry.

In the magazine's most recent Franchise 500 list, which appears in this month's issue, Chem-Dry ranked 48th overall and first among carpet cleaning companies. The annual list -- this year's is the 34th -- is closely followed and influential among small business owners, entrepreneurs and lenders throughout the world.

"The ranking supports the established reputation Chem-Dry has for not just excellence but consistent excellence over the years," said Dan Tarantin, president and CEO of Harris Research Inc., Chem-Dry's parent company. "We take great pride in being the biggest and best carpet cleaner in the world, and Entrepreneur's recognition demonstrates the success and staying power of our franchise system and its more than 3,500 units around the world."

The Franchise 500 list is viewed throughout the franchise industry as the most comprehensive and authoritative franchise ranking. The magazine ranks franchise systems according to objective, measurable aspects of each franchise's operation, including financial strength and stability, growth rate and system size.

Chem-Dry's hot carbonated water method uses about 20 percent of the water steam cleaners rely on, and the carpet dries in one to two hours instead of one or two days, resulting in a drier, cleaner, healthier carpet in the home or office. "We're not satisfied with just staying where we are," Tarantin said. "We're constantly looking for ways to upgrade our products and processes -- such as the new XTS portable unit we introduced late last year -- to make a great company even better."

Founded in 1977 and with offices in Nashville, Tenn., and Logan, Utah, Chem-Dry is the nation's leading cleaner of carpet and other household and office surfaces. It uses a patented method of hot carbonated water extraction that provides a drier, cleaner, healthier clean, and its highly ranked franchise system, which consists of more than 3,500 units, extends worldwide.
