With franchising, your operational framework, marketing collateral, and business software are already in place. This significantly cuts down on the time it takes to launch your DRYmedic business and start providing restoration services to your community. 

Your initial investment for your DRYmedic franchise covers several key components of your business, including the franchise fee, vehicle costs, and equipment. To secure your DRYmedic franchise, there is an initial franchise fee of $45,000, and initial equipment packages can range from $65,000 to $165,000. Other costs associated with your initial investment can include rent, software, signage, and more.
