Dryer Vent Wizard has a straightforward business model that doesn't require a sprawling staff, complex finances, or a hefty upfront investment as a mobile, home-based franchise. But our commitment to simple operations doesn't mean we leave franchisees to fend for themselves.
We've crafted an ongoing training and support system that provides the tools and sets franchisees up for sustained success. This system combines thorough front-end training with continued marketing, sales, and scheduling support. Our robust Dryer Vent Wizard training and support system is one reason our franchise owners attribute their success to.
Our training is tailored to our business model and informed by the experiences of existing Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees. From the start, we treat franchisees like part of our company family. Our upbeat, welcoming environment is a foundational part of our company.
Seasoned Dryer Vent Wizard franchisees love to help new owners get off to a strong start, and they play an integral role in our training process, which includes:
- Five days of classroom training at one of our headquarters in Irving or Waco, TX. This segment covers all aspects of the business model.
- Three to five days of field training. Here, expert franchisees walk trainees through a "day in the life" on the job. New owners get hands-on experience managing appointments, performing maintenance, and providing best-in-class customer service.
- After a new owner launches their franchise, our corporate team remains available to help with any questions or issues that arise.
Once franchisees are up and running, Dryer Vent Wizard continues to help behind the scenes through marketing and scheduling support.
We use effective traditional and digital marketing methods to reach potential customers in our franchisees' designated territories. We know that owners likely aren't marketing professionals, so work with you to develop the strategy and plan, providing resources you can easily deploy to activate your marketing plan.
Our brand also has a solid online and social media presence. When potential customers search Google for dryer vent repair, they'll find our name. We maintain Facebook and Twitter profiles where we engage with our audience – we even share photos of some clients' dryer vent drama to drive home the need for regular maintenance.
Our national scheduling center takes calls and books appointments for franchisees so that they never have to worry about missing a call or losing business. The scheduling center operates between 7 am and 9 pm EST, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm on Saturday and from 11 am to 3 pm on Sunday. During off-hours, calls are forwarded to an answering service where customers can speak with a live representative.
Eighty percent of new calls lead to an appointment during the first conversation, and more than 90 percent of those appointments turn into paying jobs. The experienced staff at the scheduling center logs all appointments in our web-based calendar, where franchisees submit their weekly availability. They also call existing customers to schedule re-cleaning, which generates repeat business.
These services drive sales and simplify operations for franchisees, allowing them to focus on making money and growing their businesses.
