Despite Down Economy, Saving Time, Money, Safety a Trend

WARREN, MI - Concepts continuing to hit a nerve with consumers include saving time, money and safety. Trending upward despite a sluggish economy include Collision on Wheels, (ranked 7) and Dryer Vent Wizard, (ranked 8).

According to Greg Longe and co-president John Lynch, AFS Group of Companies franchisors of Collision on Wheels, We Come to You! (CW) and Dryer Vent Wizard (DVW), Dry Clothes, Safe Homes, the demand for each of the AFS concepts has led to increases in staffing and support personnel at home office to accommodate increased growth.

When people stop to wonder how in the world a dryer vent franchise concept could trend at all much less upward, take a look at the U.S. Fire Administration statistics that show 15,500 dryer fires start every year due to lack of maintenance in dryers and dryer vents.

"As more people become aware of the fact that taking three cycles to dry clothes means there's a dryer vent clog-a known fire hazard, it becomes a safety issue in addition to getting that dryer back up and running again," says Longe. The demand is reflected in our same store sales up 80 percent over last year's numbers."

With 51 franchisees and growing, the Dryer Vent Wizard services has also gained the attention of condo associations whose insurance companies are concerned about lint accumulation in dryer vents causing dryer fires.

Adding more fuel to the fire is the recent class action lawsuit against Sears and Lowes for improper installing of dryer venting.

The company recently appointed Dayn Benson, VP corporate development to the Dryer Vent Wizard team. Benson, is interested in partnering with Sears and Lowes to assist them in a national solution to their situation.

"While cleaning and maintenance is a part of the services provided, we're nationally known as specialists in the field of dryer vent repair, replacement, installation and alteration, " says Benson. Many of our franchisees are already doing business with Sears and Lowes on the local level.

Fold in dryer manufacturers who for years have put warnings in their customers' dryer manuals regarding the importance of regular maintenance are now cracking down on warranties due to improper venting.

While getting a homeowners' dryer running properly and preventing dryer fires is the priority, most people don't realize how much more efficient their dryer is after the venting has been cleared of lint and debris saving energy dollars on average to the tune of $18 to $24 per month. Another triumph for the green movement.
