Carl’s Story

After years of working in logistics, HVAC, and construction, Carl Hein was ready for a change. He researched becoming a franchisee and after deciding it was the right move, he opened Dryer Vent Wizard® of St. Paul in Farmington, Minnesota, in 2007. The change paid off and his business has grown significantly since opening.

Carl takes pride in working alongside his family, including wife, Judy; seeing the friends and family he hires succeed; and watching the glowing customer reviews stack up. He has always moved through his life with the motto, “God first, then family, then career.” For Carl, this has been a guiding compass that has helped him grow his franchise and will hopefully keep the Hein’s on the road exploring the country in their RV a little longer.
