Furniture Medic

 

Description

Furniture Medic, the world's largest and most respected franchisor in furniture and wood repair and restoration, was founded in 1992. The Furniture Medic network has grown quickly thanks to market demand, the system's professionalism and its alliance with The ServiceMaster Company, one of the world's largest service franchising companies. Franchise owners provide on-site service to residential, commercial and insurance company customers. This franchise can be operated as an owner operator or grown with the addition of technicians.

Opportunities for Furniture Medic services are everywhere. Customers include homeowners, business owners, moving companies, hotels, furniture retailers, property managers and insurance companies - anywhere furniture or woodwork is found!

Woodworking experience is NOT a must! The combination of our initial and ongoing training, as well as our strong support, provide a strong foundation on which to build your business.
