What is a HOODZ Franchise?
Why the HOODZ Franchise is the leading commercial hood cleaning business in the nation
If you want to own a recession-resistant business that serves an untapped need in a fast-growing industry, investing in a HOODZ franchise is a wise choice. With more than 125 territories owned throughout the nation, HOODZ is the premier kitchen exhaust cleaning franchise due to superior customer service, exceptional training and the full support of BELFOR Franchise Group, the largest network of cleaning and restoration brands in the United States.
Unlike other brands in the $863 billion food service industry, HOODZ focuses on helping restaurants – and any building that serves out of a commercial kitchen – remain in compliance with health and safety codes. We specialize in cleaning kitchen exhaust hood systems, conveyor ovens, pressure washing, hood filters, grease containment and appliance deep cleaning. Our services prevent grease fires, on-the-job injuries, workers comp insurance claims, and help maintain a level of cleanliness that today’s consumers expect.
The best part? Because the majority of our services are mandated by law, HOODZ doesn’t have to look far for customers. There are more than 660,000 restaurants in the United States, and thousands more commercial kitchens in schools, prisons and hospitals, and all of them need to hire a provider to help them stay up to code. Because the majority of operators in the restaurant cleaning industry are fly-by-night operators, HOODZ is able to secure long-term contracts and establish longstanding relationships with our clients because we deliver a level of professionalism that goes far beyond the industry standard. This means that our franchise owners benefit from not only multiple lines of service, but also recurring revenue streams.
“There are two big things that most potential franchise owners look at when they’re evaluating the HOODZ franchise that sets it apart from most of the other opportunities out there in a big way,” says Nathan Willard, Brand President of HOODZ. “The first of those being the recurring aspect of the work we do. The work we do is not a one-time sale or a one-time service, but something that we do over and over again for the life of a client’s business.
“The other piece of it, which is equally important is the fact that it’s compliance-based. Most of the services that we provide are required services,” Willard continues. “They’re not optional services. So it’s not something where you’re trying to convince a prospect of the need for the item. It’s not an optional item. It’s something that they know they have to have. It’s just a matter of who they’re going to pick to go with for the service, and from that standpoint, there’s no one out there that can compete with HOODZ.”

HOODZ is a Powerful Business Model With Little Competition
Owning a kitchen exhaust cleaning business is a relationship-driven business. Owners of restaurants and managers of commercial kitchens understand the need for compliance, health and safety codes, and they want to hire a company that is reliable, professional and transparent. Because the industry is fragmented, and the majority of businesses in this space are independent, independent operators, HOODZ is able to secure relationships and retain business simply by being accountable, professional and by offering a comprehensive menu of services.
HOODZ service offerings include power washing, grease and dumpster area cleaning, kitchen floor and equipment cleaning, and more. All of these services are designed to make commercial kitchens safer and are invaluable to restaurant owners and managers, all while generating several significant additional revenue streams for our franchise owners.
“If you talk with restaurant owners and facility managers about their pain points and their disappointments in services relating to this industry, they’re looking for a very consistent option and they’re looking for a very professional option,” Willard says. “Most of their experience has been very inconsistent. People don’t show up when they say they’re going to show up, they don’t do what they say they’re going to do. A lot of the services that we provide are out of sight and out of mind to some extent, so we make an effort to demonstrate our value by being transparent and striving to be the most consistent and the most professional option.”
