Dryer Vent Wizard Experiences Significant Growth in 2015

Franchise Welcomes Eight New Franchisees in U.S. and Canada

FARMINGTON HILLS, MI--(Marketwired - Nov 9, 2015) - Dryer Vent Wizard (DVW), founded in 2004 and ranked in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 List, reports significant growth in 2015 with the addition of eight new franchisees in the U.S. and Canada. The company specializes in dryer vent repair, replacement, alteration, cleaning and maintenance for residential and commercial clients.

"Although DVW is still a young company, we have experienced year-over-year growth, even during the most difficult economic downturn of the past decade," said Terry Reuer, CEO of DVW, who has more than 15 years' experience in franchise management.

New franchisees have joined DVW in three of Canada's provinces. These include Kelly Comeau of Nanaimo, British Columbia, serving Vancouver Island, and Patrick Stradiotto of Guelph, Ontario, serving the Golden Triangle area. Terry Freiter, a new franchise owner in Calgary, Alberta will open his DVW business in early 2016.

In the U.S., three new franchisees have opened in New York, including Jon Martin of East Aurora, who serves the greater Buffalo area; Scott Koepke of Rochester, NY, whose service area includes Greece, Webster, Victor, Irondequoit and Pittsford; and Tim Horan of Baldwinsville, who serves Central New York, including Oswego, Rome, Fayetteville and Auburn.

New franchisee Vaughn Larkins of Norristown, Pennsylvania, provides DVW services for all of Montgomery County, which includes Conshohocken, Ambler, Plymouth Meeting, King of Prussia and Villanova. 

In Texas, Karl Reebenacker of Conroe, Texas, services the Woodlands Conroe area near Houston.

These eight new franchisees join more than 70 DVW franchise owners serving over 9,000 communities of all sizes throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Along with providing cleaning and maintenance services, DVW franchisees work to educate customers about proper dryer maintenance, regular check-ups, energy savings and fire prevention.

"Everyone has a strong commitment to delivering exceptional customer service, and there's a camaraderie and helpfulness among our franchisees that I don't think you'll find at a lot of companies," added Reuer. "In addition, there's the satisfaction of knowing that we're helping to educate the public about the importance of dryer vent cleaning and maintenance for fire safety and energy savings." 

It is reported that more than 15,500 dryer fires occur each year in the U.S. alone.
