History of STOP
STOP began as a business consulting firm that served the restoration industry since the ‘70’s. Franchise sales to start-up entrepreneurs started in 2008. STOP grants large territories and currently has 34 franchised units nationwide. STOP provides its franchisees with the tools they need to succeed including extensive training and support, and three conventions each year. With
decades of success stories, it is safe to call STOP a proven business model that’s scalable to suit one’s lifestyle. mSTOP’s trained and incredibly supported franchisees understand how stressful
water, smoke, fire, mold and biohazard damage can be. Experience and training make the restoration process as easy as possible. The word “team” is the foundation of STOP’s culture.
Since inception, STOP has earned respect for their technical capabilities, uniform branding, and of course, very dedicated franchisees to create one of North America’s top property damage restoration brands. To date, they’ve helped an estimated 170,000 home and business owners get back on their feet after the devastation of fire, water, smoke, mold and biohazard damage. “Our focus has been on these ordinary home and business owners since the beginning. As one’s
business scales, institutional and larger commercial work can be targeted as well,” says Brian Clark, President of STOP.
What are we looking for, and what do we offer?
STOP is looking for those that are confident, competitive, team builders, those that want to help others, and willing to learn new things. No prior restoration or construction experience is needed. Our franchise owners represent a diverse group of men and women. Some come from a background in water damage restoration. Other times, this industry is brand new to them. Either way, the STOP brand offers extensive training in management, marketing and technical areas, an established reputation, name recognition, and credibility, putting our franchisees far ahead of independent business owners trying to start from scratch.
We are committed to helping our franchisees be the best they can be and provide them with the training and tools they need to grow and succeed. When you become a property restoration franchise owner with STOP, you’ll start with written goals and timelines for achieving those goals.
