The SERVPRO Story

2/28/2020 (Permalink)

Ted and Doris Isaacson Ted and Doris Isaacson

Ted and Doris Isaacson created SERVPRO in 1967 as a painting business in Sacramento, California. With a background in cleaning and restoration, Ted and Doris soon transformed the company into a franchisor of cleanup and restoration specialists.

After selling the first franchise in 1969, SERVPRO continued to grow, acquiring the Bristol-Myers Domesticare Division and its 175 franchises in 1979.

SERVPRO relocated its corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, Tennessee, in 1988 to place itself within 600 miles of 50% of the U.S. population.

At the time of the relocation, the SERVPRO System consisted of 647 franchises.

The company's headquarters quickly became a key contributor in its community, and in 1991 the Nashville Business Journal named SERVPRO Industries, LLC, the Small Business of the Year. The company continued its impressive growth, selling the 1,000th Franchise in 2000. Learn more about our Awards and Recognition.

In 2005, SERVPRO Industries, LLC,  moved to a new 140,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Gallatin to provide more room for expansion.

On March 26, 2019, SERVPRO and Blackstone (NYSE:BX) announced that private equity funds managed by Blackstone (“Blackstone”) have recapitalized SERVPRO. Blackstone is acquiring a majority stake in SERVPRO as part of Blackstone’s Core Private Equity strategy, which is designed to hold investments for much longer periods of time than traditional private equity. The Isaacson family will be re-investing alongside Blackstone and will continue to be significant shareholders in the business going forward. 

Blackstone is one of the world's leading investment firms. They seek to create positive economic impact and long-term value for their investors, the companies they invest in, and the communities in which they work. 

More than 1,700 franchises are operating nationwide, and SERVPRO continues to grow. The need for experienced, trained, and professional cleanup and restoration experts is recession resistant, and the growth potential inside of a proven system presents an opportunity for prospective franchisees.

With a proud history, a positive current growth, and a bright future, SERVPRO will press on toward becoming the premier cleaning and restoration company in the world.

Emergency Time Management

SERVPRO of Derry/Londonderry makes it a point to stay in touch with their commercial customer base on a regularly scheduled basis, ensuring that should an emergent situation ever occur, SERVPRO will be one of the first calls they make. 

What we do after the call is really what matters most. Our response time is always within an hour of your initial call, and most times within minutes if you call our office number directly.

We will be onsite within four hours, ready and prepared to mitigate the damage, every day of the week, 24 hours per day.

If your loss is being managed by your insurer, per requirements from most insurance providers, we will provide a verbal briefing, or a description of the loss, the mitigation performed, and what it is going to take to get your home or business back to where it was.

Time management of this process is crucial in preventing further damage, limiting the cost of restoration or reconstruction, but also working to keep you in your home or to keep your business operating. 

For more information on our process, please check out our website, or better yet, contact me to discuss in person. There is never a commitment required to have a conversation.
