Global leader in carpet and floor care furthers global expansion into Central Asia
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Chem-Dry, the world’s leading carpet and floor care franchise, announced today that it is broadening its footprint to service customers in Central Asia by adding master franchisee Bakhtiyar Sharipov of Kazakhstan to its global team.
With nearly 3,500 franchises in the U.S., Canada and Asia, Chem-Dry is serving 10,000 homes and businesses each day. Chem-Dry is aggressively seeking master franchise owners like Sharipov to bring this successful brand to their region. Master franchisees own the franchising rights to an entire region or country.
An experienced businessman with an established network of contacts, Sharipov brings Chem-Dry to Kazakhstan with goals of further expanding into the surrounding Commonwealth of Independent States.
“We believe it is the perfect time to enter this market and that this will open an exciting new chapter for Chem-Dry,” says Joe Manuszak, vice-president of international growth and development for Harris Research, the parent of Chem-Dry. “Bringing Chem-Dry to the region provides a unique business opportunity. We look forward to working with Mr. Sharipov.”
“As Kazakhstan is experiencing an upswing of its economy, we have a great deal of investment interest and individuals making an upper middle-class income who are willing to pay for carpet and floor care services,” says Sharipov. “There is a great deal of activity involving the region’s infrastructure and real estate. The number of home purchases is up, which we believe is offering an opportunity for owners of Chem-Dry to create relationships with many new customers eager to take pride in their new home or office space.”
This is Chem-Dry’s first effort in Central Asia. Recently, the company expanded into Cambodia, alongside the South East part of the continent as part of its goal of maintaining development momentum worldwide.
