Service Team of Professionals Celebrates a Great 2015 in Las Vegas
Service Team of Professionals (“S.T.O.P.”) may be one of the smaller restoration brands at this time – by location count. But the service footprint of STOP’s 35 locations (providing mitigation and repair for water damage, smoke, fire, and mold) is comparable to about 100 locations of most other brands; credit to STOP’s huge territories and their system of building large franchisees.
If you attended STOP’s year-end meeting and awards banquet in Las Vegas last month, the validity of STOP’s large territory / fewer locations model would be glaring. In a room of only 50 people, mostly couples, awards went to five STOP franchisees; one that hit $1,000,000 in 2015 sales, 4 of which did $2,000,000 – $7,000,000!
“We know how to build large companies and STOP is a management and marketing weighted program” said Brian Clark, a consultant with STOP. To be fair, STOP has over four decades of experience in the industry (providing their knowledge and support in a consulting format, prior to franchising). STOP provides deep support and close interaction with its franchisees.
“We are not touting a goal to replace your old job’s income” Brian points out. “We are looking for high-commitment, big thinkers that want to dominate their market.
