Day to day:
During the ramp up of the business our owners are required to wear a variety of hats – business development/marketing, project management and operations, customer service, etc. All of our new owners are trained a certified to perform water and fire restoration services, and during the early phases of the business they may be required to “roll up their sleeves” and assist their technicians from time to time. Our main goal is to have our owners direct a team. As the business grows, we expect them to methodically delegate the various responsibilities to employees and ultimately become a general manager of the business and be working on the business. The starting business unit is a vehicle, an initial equipment package, the owner/operator, and a trained technician or two. This is very much a ‘relationship’ business – candidates do not have to sales and business development experience, but they should at least be comfortable in a networking role and spending time calling on insurance professionals, property managers and real estate agents, and various contractors.

About Tracer Consulting
I am a USNA '14 grad and a certified franchise consultant. The listings I have are franchises with veteran discounts, their business model plays to the strengths of veterans (leadership, ability to follow a plan, planning/logistics, etc), they have proven records of success, and the potential for great returns. If you want to learn about other franchise opportunities, opportunities in other locations or other industries please contact me.
I can also help you find funding partners that will help you obtain a loan. The two major SBA loans are: 1) The Express Loan which is used for home based franchises, is up to $150,000, requires and 10% cash injection, and no collateral. 2) A standard loan that can be used for non-home based franchises, is up to $5 million, requires a 20%-30% cash injection, and requires collateral. For either of these loans, the rates are prime +2.75% (currently totaling 6%) and if you are funded before September 27, 2020 then the government will pay for the first 6 months of your loan- they are doing this to encourage entrepreneurship during the corona virus pandemic.
