Spaulding Decon, Leader in Decontamination Services, to Begin Franchising Nationwide

Posted in Press Releases on Tuesday, March 17, 2015.

Tampa, Fla.—(Mar. 17, 2015)—Spaulding Decon, an established leader in the crime scene cleanup, hoarding cleanup and meth lab decontamination, announced it has begun offering franchises in 31 states throughout the U.S. With this expansion, Spaulding Decon becomes the only national franchise to offer comprehensive services in all three fields.

“For years, Spaulding Decon has proudly provided nationwide service using our market-tested model,” said Founder and President Laura Spaulding, a former police officer who over the past seven years has emerged as a leading decontamination expert sought out by The Wall Street Journal, The Huffington Post and other top tier media. “Franchising lets us respond to the growing demand for services and allow entrepreneurs the opportunity to break into a booming market. For now we are selling franchises in those states without strict industry regulations. Once we generate greater interest in the 19 regulation states, we’ll expand even further.”

Regulation states include California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin. Spaulding Decon will assign new owners a service region of one million houses in their home state.

According to IBISWorld, the crime scene cleanup industry generates annual revenues of approximately $346 million in the United States with only 560 companies offering services. Franchises are available for an initial investment of $35,000 and 8 percent ongoing royalties. Spaulding notes that this lucrative industry lets investors build a career rich in benefits beyond the financial.

“For the right person, the decontamination industry offers unparalleled rewards,” said Spaulding. “Many of our clients struggle to recover from life-changing tragedies. Those who have worked in public services, such as law enforcement, the military and nursing, understand the amazing feeling of helping a neighbor and tend to thrive in this field.”

New owners begin with a three-week training course at Spaulding Decon headquarters in Tampa that incorporates classroom and hands-on instruction. During the course, Spaulding Decon professionals teach vital industry skills, such as proper decontamination techniques and equipment maintenance, as well as business fundamentals, including instruction in human resources and accounting. Once a new franchise is up and running, Spaulding spends one week every quarter at each location sharing her professional experience in decontamination and law enforcement.

“I remember the struggle of starting out as the lone employee and I want to provide franchise owners with every advantage possible,” said Spaulding. “For example, we’re the only franchise of our kind that doesn’t require owners to start out investing in a brick-and-mortar location. Being able to work from a vehicle lets franchisees establish themselves in the community without the financial burden of a lease.”

Spaulding Decon encourages potential owners to take advantage of an industry with a steadily growing public demand and media interest.
