2023-10-31T18:09:04-04:00October 31st, 2023|Tags: , , , , |

Trusted Name in Drain and Sewer Services Set to Support Local Property Managers, Contractors, Plumbers & Homeowners with 24/7, 365 Drainage Solutions

OPELIKA, Ala. — Zoom Drain – a leading operator of drain and sewer services – opened its newest franchise location in the Auburn, Alabama, area on Oct. 30th. Zoom Drain Auburn will proudly serve the Auburn/Opelika area and East Central Alabama, including the Montgomery/Prattville areas and surrounding communities. Currently, there are three Zoom Drain franchise locations in Alabama, with 58 total locations nationwide.

The local owners of the new Zoom Drain-Auburn are Richard Manry and Gina Moore.  After graduating from Auburn University, for the past 25 years, Richard has been a medical/surgical device representative. Gina is also an Auburn University graduate. After 30-plus years as a speech and language pathologist, she elected to put her Master’s in (school) Counseling to work.  Both Richard and Gina’s professions required being detail-oriented and servicing others. “We both know and understand the value of helping people and the requirement of exceeding customers’ expectations, whether it’s surgeons, patients, children, or parents; we listen and deliver expert service and satisfaction!” Richard and Gina commented.

Richard and Gina were impressed with Zoom Drain’s attention to detail and commitment to hiring the best technicians who are not only great at drain/sewer cleaning but also vetted & background checked.  “I’ve got kids and grandkids, so who I let come into my home or business is important,” says Gina. Richard added: “Our technicians wear shoe covers; after job completion, they clean up after themselves. It’s an honor to enter your home or place of business, and we promise to take care of them!”

Zoom Drain provides around-the-clock residential and commercial services centering on drain and sewer cleaning, sewer pipe video inspections, grease trap maintenance, and various snake-cable sizes to fit the customer’s needs.  From clogged sinks and bathtubs to main sewer line blockages, Zoom Drain utilizes five different drain cleaning machines and a custom hydro-jetter to tackle any sewage issue that arises. Customers include commercial property managers, contractors, plumbers, and homeowners needing immediate solutions to drain and sewage issues.

Zoom Drain prides itself on consistently providing swift, dependable service by expertly-trained specialists for emergency and planned maintenance service needs – everything that has to do with wastewater management. Zoom Drain is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, and there’s never any additional cost for “off-hours” service such as nights, weekends, or even holidays.

“We cannot be any prouder to see the Zoom Drain Auburn team further expand our concept into more local communities,” said Jim Criniti, CEO of Zoom Drain. “They have the full support of the corporate team behind them as they look to continue upholding our brand’s stellar reputation.”

Clean Eatz Packs Healthy Lifestyle System into Single Box

2023-10-31T18:00:56-04:00October 31st, 2023|Tags: , , , |

New 30-Day Reboot Kit Built to Kickstart Diet and Total Wellness

WILMINGTON, N.C. — Clean Eatz, America’s leading health food restaurant and meal kit delivery franchise, has debuted the brand’s newest product, the Reboot Box, in response to a significant spike in customers seeking a simple, streamlined solution capable of recalibrating their nutritional lifestyle.

The Clean Eatz product development team spent the better part of two years defining the keys to some of their customers’ greatest dietary successes. Tapping into results from the brand’s annual WeChangeLivez Challenge (WCL), in which participants track their wellness efforts for the chance to win prizes, the Clean Eatz team noticed a few similarities.

“Every person who moved the needle over the last 5 years of WCL – and there have been a ton – had two things in common: They stuck to a defined, easy meal routine, and they committed to regular physical activity,” said Evonne Varady, Clean Eatz founder and Co-owner. “This combo was their lightening in a bottle, and we wanted to capture it in a single kit that men and women could use to replicate those results.”

After dialing in the right nutritional plan for a one-month supercharge, Clean Eatz worked with experts in the physical fitness space to map out other practices for an improved lifestyle shift.

Each Clean Eatz Reboot Kit comes complete with the below items:

  • Voucher for 30 days’ worth of Clean Eatz meals (15 meals a week for 4 weeks)
  • 1 month’s supply of Clean Eatz Dessert Barz for snacks
  • 1 weekly Clean Crust Pizza (Throughout the Reboot month)
  • 1 bottle of Shakez – Clean Eatz Protein Powder
  • 1 bottle of SuperFoodz – Clean Eatz Supplement Powder
  • The Official Reboot Lifestyle System Guide
  • Reboot workout swag

“We knew the plans and nutritional tools in the Reboot Kit had to be sustainable for our fans to stay committed for 30 days,” Varady said. “No one has time for unrealistic diet fads. As long as it made sense, we included it as part of this lifestyle system.”

The Reboot Kit retails for $499. It is available at all participating Clean Eatz café locations.

Clean Eatz, which launched in 2011 and started franchising in 2015, was co-founded by husband-and-wife duo Don and Evonne Varady, as a means of helping individuals and families change their lives by providing them with better nutrition options, a steady dose of health and wellness education, and a diverse support community that’s committed to helping each other in becoming their best selves. By supplying such healthy alternatives, the Clean Eatz brand has continued to win over communities with their dine-in, grab-n-go, catering, marketplace, and weekly online meal plan selections. With 94 locations operational and 87 in development, the franchise will likely be coming to an address near you soon.

Salon suite franchise surpasses 2023 fundraising goal, raising over $600,000 for cancer research in the last five years

CARROLLTON, Texas — MY SALON Suite, a salon suite franchise that focuses on providing stylists and beauticians a personal space to build their business and the beauty industry’s future, announced it has raised more than $120,000 this year for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through the brand’s Suite Relief Fund™, an annual fundraiser held in September in honor of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. This marks the fifth year of the fundraiser, and the third consecutive year the brand has surpassed its goal to raise more than $120,000.

The long-standing partnership between St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and MY SALON Suite began with the launch of the Suite Relief Fund™ in 2018. Now, the Suite Relief Fund has raised over $600,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since the partnership’s inception. Continued support through financial donations helps St. Jude provide treatment, travel, housing, and food to the more than 400,000 kids with cancer around the world each year, at no charge to their families.

“For the third consecutive year, the MY SALON Suite community rallied together to surpass our goal and raise over $120,000 for St. Jude,” said Stacy Eley, president of Suite Management Franchising. “The majority of donations this year were less than $50, the collective effort and generosity of so many of our Members and their clients adding up to a huge number. With MY SALON Suite’s ongoing growth and expanded efforts, we look forward to continuing our support of St. Jude’s life-saving mission and achieving an even greater impact in the years to come.”

MY SALON Suite surpassed its fundraising goal through generous donations from clients, members, franchise partners, vendors and the Suite Management Franchising team. Scott Neglia, owner of MY SALON Suite Port Jefferson, and Mike and Tonya Hilliard, owners of MY SALON Suite West Melbourne, were this year’s top fundraising locations. As part of the brand’s commitment to giving back, MY SALON Suite also recently honored multi-unit franchisee Randy Gunst with the B.I.G. (“Beauty in Giving”) Award during the brand’s annual convention, in recognition of his contributions to his community.

Why Generational Targeting Fails

2023-10-31T13:30:41-04:00October 30th, 2023|Tags: , , |

We hear many so-called franchise experts discussing marketing to millennials or marketing to Gen Z. They usually start blogs or videos with statements like, “Millennials want…” or “Gen Z doesn’t like…” There are currently about 70 million people in the U.S. in each of these age groups. Painting that many people with the same brush is outdated and ignorant. At best, it’s just lazy marketing. At worst, it’s sketchy and misleading. By Jack Monson
