Dental Fix Rx Signs 100th Franchise
Dental Fix Rx, a company specializing in repairing dental equipment, turns four years old this month, but that’s not its only reason to celebrate.
This month Dental Fix Rx signed its 100th franchise, expanding its coverage in South Florida and increasing its service territories to more than 70 in the U.S. and Canada combined.
“This is a need-based business,” said David Lopez, Chief Executive of Dental Fix. “Dental equipment will always break and will always need to be fixed.”
Dental Fix franchisees are mobile operators, heading out to dentists’ office to fix broken hand pieces, compressors and other medical equipment used at their practice. They drive a van equipped with tools and do repairs on-site, eliminating the need for doctors to ship the parts to repair centers.
While their core customers are dentists, Dental Fix also fields calls from tattoo shops, pharmaceutical companies and veterinarians, Lopez said.
Lopez hopes to add at least 50 more territories in 2014 through aggressive marketing, but expects a third of that will “come organically” as a result of current owners’ referrals. It takes about $70,000 to start a franchise, Lopez said, which includes ownership fees, six weeks of training and repair tools.
Plantation resident Matthias Williams is Dental Fix Rx’s 100th proud franchisee.
