Yes, You Can Run a Business and Have a Life!

A healthy work-life balance tops the list of desired job qualities. Unfortunately, most employees spend more than 40 hours a week in the workplace, and about half of Americans are dissatisfied with their jobs due to this lack of work-life balance.

Many try to find job satisfaction by starting their own businesses. When you’re the boss, you can make your own schedule, right? Unfortunately, many find they spend just as much, if not more, time on the job as business owners.

Franchises bridge this gap between ownership and job satisfaction through established practices and corporate support. An opportunity like Dryer Vent Wizard allows owner-operators a rewarding career and personal life. Here’s how this home service franchise concept offers the best of both worlds:

Straightforward Operations

Simplicity is inherent to a mobile franchise business model because there isn’t an office space to manage. Your whole business fits in a vehicle—or a fleet of vehicles when you’re ready to scale your business. This not only reduces costs, it simplifies operations.Dave standing in from of Dryer Vent Wizard Technician vans

This turnkey business utilizes a proven model. Franchise owners benefit from the tested and fine-tuned processes. Less trial and error means franchisees hit the ground running with revenue and can make it home in time for dinner.

Additionally, corporate support helps franchisees navigate challenges. With an established brand like Dryer Vent Wizard, we’ve seen it all. When you run into a problem with anything from dryer vent repairs to customer service, we’re ready to help. You’re in business for yourself, not by yourself.

Comprehensive Training

Dryer Vent wizard doesn’t require its owner-operators to have technical experience. Our operations training program consists of five days at headquarters covering the business model, as well as three to five days in South Carolina where franchisees live a “day in the life” on the job. This comprehensive program equips franchisees with management, customer service, marketing and sales tactics.

Another central component of our training program, Wizard University, educates franchisees with a collection of step-by-step guides on how to perform various maintenance jobs. This complete view of day-to-day tasks prepares franchisees to get behind the wheels of their mobile units and get down to business.Tom Griffin

Flexible Scheduling

As the boss, you book your daily appointments to fit around your regular schedule. This allows franchise owners time to take their kids to school or attend evening events.

So many franchise concepts claim to provide this flexibility, but Dryer Vent Wizard delivers on this promise. Our business model supports entrepreneurs in their career goals and personal lives. Not only does the model adapt to the franchisee’s schedule, it makes scheduling easy with a centralized call center. Franchisees choose their preferred time windows, and the call center handles system-wide appointment scheduling. This streamlines the process and makes it easy to book and manage appointments.


A mobile concept like Dryer Vent Wizard makes it possible for entrepreneurs to make a profit and have a life. The entire model is optimized for straightforward operations and standardized procedures – from training to scheduling to field work.
