Carpet Cleaning Company Provides Unique Business Opportunity to Returning Soldiers.

A common concern among military families is what type of employment will be available when they make the switch to civilian life. With a slower than expected economic recovery, many soldiers are returning home to face the daunting task of finding work in a volatile job market.  One locally based carpet cleaning company has come up with their own interesting answer to this concern.

1-800 DRYCARPET, a franchise company providing an innovative dry carpet cleaning system, has announced a partnership with The VET-FRAN Program to offer veterans a discounted payment schedule for purchasing a 1-800 DRYCARPET franchise.

“At a time when corporations are still hesitant to hire, entrepreneurship can be a viable and liberating alternative.” Says Founder and President of 1-800 DRYCARPET Greg Cantrell.

According to the Veterans Association of America, by the end of 2006 there will be over 470,000 soldiers reentering the workplace.  “1-800 DRYCARPET considers franchise ownership one of the world’s best-kept secrets.”  Says Cantrell, and wants to see the opportunities for business ownership made more accessible.

As one of only four companies worldwide to offer consumers an option over the traditional wet or steam cleaning system, 1-800 DRYCARPET asserts that the partnership with VET-FRAN is “a win-win situation”. Cantrell says he believes that military training can be a real advantage in the business world, “Veterans are especially adept at understanding systems and disciplined enough to self-manage. The combination of a superior business model with a superior candidate to run it creates the ideal formula for success!”

When asked what prompted him to initiate the partnership with VET-FRAN Cantrell answered “At 1-800 DRYCARPET we are humbled by the sacrifice that these soldiers have offered our country to protect the freedoms we enjoy and we view it as our civic duty to ensure that our soldiers and their families are given the best opportunities when they come home and reenter the workforce.”
