SirVent announces Chimney & Venting Franchises
SirVent Franchising, LLC (SirVent) is offering franchise opportunities throughout the United States. SirVent is a partnership effort created by industry members and leaders Jim Brewer, Mark Stoner, Cliff Slagle and Jake Loeffler. The partners state their goals as:
Raising the bar in the chimney & venting industry by providing business owners with excellent business operation systems, marketing & sales systems, and technical training for both business owners and employees.
The partners hope to increase consumer awareness of the need for chimney and venting service by tapping into the estimated 95 percent of American homes that have never been serviced by a chimney or venting professional. “SirVent believes the chimney and venting service industry is still an emerging market with the potential to increase in size benefiting both new and existing chimney service companies.”
The founding partners have each built successful chimney service companies and are excited to share their years of experience with new business owners. Each of the founding partners brings unique strengths and abilities to the company:
Cliff Slagle is the CEO, Director of Field Operations and is an excellent technician. He is recognized as the “Get ‘Er Done Guy”. Cliff runs multiple operations in Michigan and Indiana and has over 24 years of industry experience.
Mark Stoner is the Director of Marketing and is a true marketing genius. He is recognized throughout the industry as building one of the most successful chimney service companies in the country. Through his 29 years of industry experience Mark has offered assistance to chimney sweeps from across the country and has shared his business ideas with them, in fact many have coined the phrase “Stoner University” for visiting his Nashville facility. Mark currently has multiple operations in Tennessee, Kentucky and South Carolina.
Jim Brewer is the Director of Training and has been teaching chimney sweeps since 1986. He has built a solid reputation as an outstanding technician and award winning trainer. Jim has over 35 years of industry experience operating a business in southeast Virginia.
Jake Loeffler is Director of Franchise Development and has unique experience in systems development and business management. Jake has been operating multiple businesses in Vermont and has 13 years of industry experience.
Together the partners believe they have the experience to get new businesses up and running quickly with good systems and training so they will be able to serve consumers and provide world class service. Each SirVent franchise will be individually owned and operated.
Prior to working in the client’s home a new franchisee or technician will have over 120 hours of classroom and field training. They will also be required to obtain the CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep and C-DET certification. After a few months of service work in their market area, franchisees will return for an additional 100 hours of advanced training for repairs, installations and trouble-shooting topics. SirVent will encourage technicians and owners to obtain NFI certifications and ultimately Master Hearth Professional designation. In addition to initial and advanced training our franchisees will have access to a steady stream of continuous training through online webinars and videos. All SirVent franchises will be required to maintain National Chimney Sweep Guild membership and we will encourage our franchisee’s to be active in state, regional and national industry associations.
This opportunity has been two years in the making to ensure that maximum value and benefits are offered to our franchisees. This is a limited ground floor opportunity and we are excited to speak with all interested parties. For more information, visit www.sirventfranchising.com
