Ted and Doris Isaacson launched?SERVPRO?in 1967?as a painting business in Sacramento, Calif. With a background in cleaning and restoration, however, Ted and Doris soon transformed the company into a franchisor of cleanup and restoration specialists.
After selling its first Franchise in 1969,?SERVPRO?continued to grow, acquiring the Bristol-Myers Domesticare Division and its 175 Franchises in 1979.
SERVPRO?relocated the corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, TN, in 1988 in a strategic move to place itself within 600 miles of 50% of the U.S. population.
At the time of the relocation, the?SERVPRO?System consisted of 647 Franchises.
SERVPRO?Corporate quickly became a key contributor in its community, and in 1991 the?Nashville Business Journal?named?SERVPRO?the?Small Business of the Year. In the meantime the company continued its impressive growth, selling the 1,000th Franchise in 2000. Learn more about our Awards and Recognition.
In 2005,?SERVPRO?moved to a 140,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Gallatin to provide more room for expansion.
More than 1,700 Franchises?are operating nationwide, and?SERVPRO?continues to grow. The need for experienced, trained and professional cleanup and restoration experts is recession resistant, and the growth potential inside of a proven system presents an opportunity for prospective Franchisees.
With a proud history, a successful present and a bright future,?SERVPRO?will press on toward becoming the premier cleaning and restoration company in the world.
