Welcome to N-Hance

Learn all you need to know about owning an N-Hance Wood Refinishing franchise in your local area.

History of HRI & N-Hance

N-Hance Wood Renewal was started by Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning, the world’s largest commercial carpet cleaning company. In the early 2000’s, many Chem-Dry franchise owners noticed that their technicians were walking across thousands of damaged wood floors. N-Hance began as a separate franchise business to refinish and renew hardwood floors, and grew to include refinishing cabinetry, furniture, and trim work.

The Value Proposition of N-Hance

Low Initial Investment

Typically when it comes to service-providing franchises, investment costs increase as the brand grows and develops. At N-Hance, we’re proud to have maintained low initial investments since beginning in 2001. We also provide low initial investments by:

  • Replacing cash surpluses with motivated and hard-working individuals willing to succeed.
  • We provide essential tools for success.
  • Franchisees provide a great work ethic and delighted customers.
  • Lowered interest rates.
  • Increased borrowing amounts.

We want to make sure that we support our franchisees – if they fail, we fail. Our partnership turns into a successful and intelligent relationship when both parties are working together for the same common goal.

Low Overhead Structure

The most important aspect of any business is the customer. N-Hance helps franchisees take care of the customer by removing the financial stress, because we understand that cash flow is king when operating a business, so we always look for possibilities for our franchisees to minimize costs in order to maximize profits.

We offer low overhead costs so that N-Hance owners have accessible cash on-hand, which allows your N-Hance business to operate in a constant growth mode. Ideally, we can also help minimize costs through options to operate away from a store, like a home office and work van.

Unique & Emerging Market Segment

As we’ve said before, N-Hance is not the only wood refinishing company; however, we are the only refinishing company with a national footprint. We offer a commitment to research and a dedication to development which cannot be matched by any other competitor in the industry. Our word is our bond, and we take that very seriously.

World Class Support

We understand and empathize with what so many feel when starting a new business; feelings of fear or feeling alone in your efforts as you strive to become successful in your endeavors. A partnership with N-Hance contains the basic right to never come to those feelings.

Because we know that starting something new can be difficult and challenging, let our experience and proven technical and operational processes help you along the way. No matter the area you feel your efforts are lacking, we have the best support on hand to coach, train and help you find success in order to overcome any feeling of weakness you may have.

Our Staff & Diverse Network

One of the best ways new franchisees can learn and grow is through interaction with our experienced and energetic network. Our network is full of people who love to share their knowledge, learn all they can, and ask others for help and support. Our franchisees are selfless, interested in the success of the brand as a whole, and hungry for growth.

Built-In Lead Sources

After a new franchise signs their contract, they are able to hit the ground running with legitimate leads and jobs because of our partnerships and national marketing efforts. With that said, when a new franchisee buys into N-Hance, they buy into a well-established power and presence on the internet. Our national website, nhance.com, generates leads and business for each franchise by informing customers of our services and directing them to individual franchise pages.

Currently, N-Hance is found in over 1700 of the 1900 Home Depot stores across the nation. Each Home Depot has a permanent display in the kitchen department featuring our various service options (Currently in the U.S. only). This built-in lead source provides franchisees with a lead generating opportunity right from the start without having to spend much money up front.

Recession Resistant Methods

The last several years have not been easy for home improvement businesses. However, N-Hance has managed to enjoy double digit growth, higher average revenue, and growth in both our national footprint and franchise counts. While countless cabinet and floor companies have gone out of business over the last few years, N-Hance has been recession resistant and maintained growth.

As everyone has experienced, when times are difficult, consumers gravitate towards companies that offer the most value. N-Hance has a value proposition that cannot be beat by any competitor. Our relatively inexpensive services are ideal for any type of economic situation. It has been a welcomed and comforting fact that what we offer is constantly in demand, regardless of economic position.

Patented Technologies

We commit heavily to innovation. We have patents in place that protect our innovative products from competitors. Currently, N-Hance has patents on our Deep Release cleaner, which creates a neutral pH level with the chemical compounds we use. This is also found in our sealer, which eliminates certain problems that are typically associated with water-based finishes used on floors or cabinets, which have been cleaned with acidic cleaners.

Our unique dust-containment system which is used with our buffers is also patented. We even patent our color films, our new application process for color transformations, and our iPad “N-Hance Visualizer” App. The more patented and successfully proven methods you have at your disposal, the more prone you are to success.
