SERVPRO® of Pulaski and Laurel Counties Mourns Death of Franchise Founder
SERVPRO® of Pulaski & Laurel Counties announced Monday that SERVPRO franchise system founder, Ted Isaacson, passed away on Friday, January 20th. “Ted was the most inspirational person I’ve ever had the pleasure of spending time with,” said Julie Roberts, Co-Owner of the local franchise, “He could fill a room with his presence, and every time I walked away from talking to him I felt like I needed to go make a to-do list of things I needed to get done!”
Ted and his wife Doris founded the company in 1967 in Sacramento, California after some time in the painting and cleaning industry. His commitment to the system, helping change people’s lives, and his family, skyrocketed the franchise system to where it is today, with over 1700 franchises across the United States and Canada.

SERVPRO Franchises Take Away Top Honors at 2016 Convention in Las Vegas
Keep up our #ServproSummerOfSelfies social media campaign on a red carpet in Las Vegas.
The SERVPRO ownership team, consisting of Tony and Julie Roberts and Mike Parsons, returned from Las Vegas last month after a week of celebrating the accomplishments of their franchises at the 2016 SERVPRO National Convention. Held at the MGM Grand, Tony, Julie, and Mike took the very hot week (up to 120 degree temperatures) to learn more about our new Operating Software enhancements, increasing customer service rankings, new advancements in water and fire damage cleaning and equipment, as well innovative sales tactics to keep our insurance clients and property managers thinking of the SERVPRO brand.
Ironically while visiting the typically hot and dry town, terrible rain storms flooded the streets, even causing the airport to delay flights. “I received a flood warning notification on my phone” said Tony Roberts, “and naturally thought it was for London, Corbin, or Somerset flooding, and it turned out it was for Las Vegas.” Then while heading to the room, a leak in the ceiling of the casino caused a small water damage in the slot machine area. “It’s like they knew SERVPRO was in town!”
The Roberts and Parsons celebrated another year of superior performance at the Awards Banquet. Their franchises again ranked in the top 100 performers, of over 1600 franchises in the United States and Canada. They also held on to their spot in the Top Storm Team Volume Producers of all time. “We are extremely blessed with a great team, a passion for the industry, and the opportunity to help people when they need it most,” said Julie, “the fact that we are continually recognized as being the top performers in our system is just icing on the cake.”
SERVPRO Convention in 2017 is being held in Seattle, and Tony, Julie, and Mike said they plan on taking away top honors again next year. “This year we’ve been afforded the opportunity to help a lot of people with fire, water and mold damage in Southeastern Kentucky and beyond,” said Mike, “we just keep making it a priority to help those people who need it most, and our customers just keep coming back and spreading the word of our quality work.”

SERVPRO Names to Entrepreneur's Top 10 Franchise List for 7th Consecutive Year
SERVPRO® Named to Entrepreneur’s Top 10 Franchise List
for 7th Consecutive Year
Cleanup and restoration franchisor retains top ranking in restoration services category and climbs to #4 ranking overall in the 2016 Franchise 500 rankings
London, KY (Grassroots Newswire) 1/14/2016 - SERVPRO®, a cleanup and restoration franchise company, maintains its hold on the top ranking in the Restoration Services industry for the 13th consecutive year and moves up to the number four spot overall in the 2016 Franchise 500 rankings from Entrepreneur magazine.* This is the seventh consecutive year SERVPRO has been included in the magazine’s Top 10 list, standing out in a group of more than 951 franchises that qualified for inclusion in the list.
Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 selection process** uses "objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation" to help would-be entrepreneurs identify franchise investment opportunities. Some of the most important factors considered by Entrepreneur in developing the list each year are "financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system."
"It’s exciting to be part of a dynamic organization that continues to grow and strives to always provide superior support for its franchisees, and by extension its customers," said Julie Roberts, owner of SERVPRO of Pulaski & Laurel Counties. "The recognition that the company earns year after year in this prestigious list is confirmation of a commitment to excellence that starts at the top and is evident in the service that each franchisee provides to each and every customer."
According to Roberts, a number of differentiators set SERVPRO apart from the competition and fuel the attractiveness of the company to both existing franchisees and would-be entrepreneurs looking for a strong business opportunity. Key among these are:
? SERVPRO’s strength as a brand with a national footprint, wide-spread market penetration, laser-focused brand messaging, and the ability to create national partnerships with organizations such as the PGA TOUR and the American Red Cross.
? SERVPRO’s commitment to being a learning organization, which keeps training and support at the forefront of the company’s culture and philosophy of success and helps franchisees plan, track, and deliver best-in-class services to consumers.
? SERVPRO’s focus on continued development and support for proprietary software and systems to allow the company’s operational capacity to keep pace with an aggressive growth strategy.
Sue Steen, SERVPRO Industries, Inc., chief executive officer, adds, "One of the potential pitfalls of growing too quickly is outpacing your capacity to train and support the franchisees. SERVPRO® is a conservative company, and early on we took the time to build a strong system and put the building blocks in place to support growth without sacrificing support to our franchisees."
"Today," Steen continues, "as a mature franchise organization with more than 1,700 locations under a single brand, recognition like this makes it clear we are reaping the rewards of having laid a solid foundation and a framework to handle quick growth. As our brand continues to grow, we will continue our winning strategy of supporting and improving upon our infrastructure and investing resources in training and support."
SERVPRO® specializes in fire and water cleanup and restoration services, helping both commercial and residential customers recover from property damage emergencies "Like it never even happened." For more information about SERVPRO® please visit www.SERVPRO.com.
