    DripLoc

    rumors are circulating that DripLoc has been bought out by Belfor.
    Belfor for those that do not know is the company that is franchising out the HOODZ brand.
    I have attempted to get a hold of Barry Wagner at DripLoc to see if it is true.
    Anybody have any info?

    Hoodz is nothing new. Their purchase of DripLoc (if true) is something I haven't heard until late last night (remind me to put my cell phone on silent when I go to bed). As far as another KEC contractor moving in... there is always someone new moving in.

    The deal was inked a few weeks ago. The Driploc service will coninue as usual for now.

    Hoodz is doing it right with a picture program in place and one of the best greasers in the industry in charge of training.

    With 100 offices nationwide, they are already the largest kitchen exhaust cleaning company in the nation.

    Be afraid, be very afraid.

    Well, it is what it is. Its easier said than done Josh. Owning a shiny franchise is awesome, this isnt easy work, its difficult to staff properly, and requires EXTREMELY close supervision of staff. There is no reason to panic. There will be plenty of work for those who choose to offer a quality product at a competitive price. This really will require a sharpening up of the tools across the board, marketing online, in the field and offering the best service you possibly can offer everyday. With the coming regulation to Cali we can expect a raising of the quality standard and a weeding out of the hacks that plague this trade...(you know who you are) !

    My Dad used to tell me " The definition of a professional is you get paid to perform even when you dont feel like it"

    This isn't Commercial or Dunnwell or even Facilitec. This changes the entire game, nobody has ever bdone what Hoodz is doing. Their infrastructue is solid and they have the means to do whatever it takes to succede.

    Imagine you were a hardware store owner when Home Depot started up, I'm sure plenty of those guys thought it was no big deal. But how many local hardware stores do you see around today?

    Consider the game changed.

    Go to their website and look at their locations, unless i missed something, they only have contacts for 46 franchise and in areas like nashville and atlanta they are putting multiple franchises in the same city, the thing about those franchise press releases is that you can write your own and as long as you pay the franchise association/organization you can say just about anything you want ....true or not...im not skeered......but i do fear the foam.....alot....

    Your Mr. D knows all about stuff like that. It is really easy to put whatever info you want about your company on the web....better make sure you can back it up though. You should have bought a Hoodz franchiz.....Their logo leaves a better impression IMO.

    This to shall pass, just like the many others that I have seen come and go over the years. A franchise is like an employee and your only as good as your worst employee. With the exception that the Franchisee has to stay in business in order for it to become successful. I think we can all agree that that depends on a lot of things.

    Fortunately for me, we didn't have to put out a lot of cash to buy the right to do what we do and were we do it. Fortunately for me I don't have that huge monthly payment. Fortunately for me I don't any restrictions as to who, what and where I service........ and fortunately I can take what little extra cash that I do have each month and put it away for future expenses such as equipment and vehicle replacement.......... all these things could be devastating to these franchisees when the time comes.

    In the mean time, I will remember how much more fortunate I am than that poor franchisee, I will continue to service my customers the best that I can, and I will take care of my little corner of the world.

    The franchise requirements require at least "By checking this box, you agree that you meet
    the mininum requirements of $100,000 net
    worth with $300,000 of liquid capital."

    I sold franchises before. The company that did ours did in fact REQUIRE that the minimum requirements be met. This filters out those who will fail before the business gets started.

    IF they are able to expand under those requirements they will take over the market. The people buying the franchises will most likely never spend more than a few nights working. They will hire and train employees right off the bat and work at a loss for the first 3-4 years.

    I don't know if money is flowing freely enough at this point for them to find enough people who qualify.

    I'd be curious to know if they are actually sticking to the requirements or if they are fudging on them. If they are fudging on them they will probably fail because they will end up with a bunch of quitters that haven't had enough discipline in their past endeavors to reach the minimum requirements.

    We didn't fudge on our requirements and most of ours (started in 1995) are still in business.
