Alejandro Restrepo was working for one of the largest insurance companies in the world in their disaster claims unit. The experience served as the motivation to work for himself and gave him insight into a franchise industry that is virtually recession-proof.
As Alejandro tried to educate himself on what franchise options were out there and how to find the best one, he stumbled across the Franchising 101 Podcast. Listening to a few episodes was all it took for Alejandro to realize he needed to connect with the FranCoach team.
Alejandro felt strongly that the remediation industry was the one he wanted to be in, yet stayed open to exploring other potential options. Over 90% of FranCoach’s clients start a franchise in an industry in which they have little to no experience. However, Alejandro fell into the 10% minority as the franchise option best suited for him was in the insurance-based remediation industry.
PuroClean, "The Paramedics of Property Damage", is a full-service remediation company focused on water damage, flood water removal, fire and smoke damage remediation, mold removal, and biohazard cleanup to commercial and residential customers. Alejandro was committed to this industry due to his experience, desire to make a difference in the community, and knowledge that these were services that would always be in demand. He loved PuroClean over other options in this industry based on their robust infrastructure, training and support, and national accounts.
Alejandro also used one of FranCoach's premier financial partners, Benetrends to fund his franchise via their ROBS program.
PuroClean of southern Connecticut will be opening in late 2021. Please join us in congratulating Alejandro and his family on their new business.
