Insurance Exec To Open Remediation Franchise in Connecticut


Alejandro Restrepo was working for one of the largest insurance companies in the world in their disaster claims unit.  The experience served as the motivation to work for himself and gave him insight into a franchise industry that is virtually recession-proof.

As Alejandro tried to educate himself on what franchise options were out there and how to find the best one, he stumbled across the Franchising 101 Podcast. Listening to a few episodes was all it took for Alejandro to realize he needed to connect with the FranCoach team.

Alejandro felt strongly that the remediation industry was the one he wanted to be in, yet stayed open to exploring other potential options. Over 90% of FranCoach’s clients start a franchise in an industry in which they have little to no experience. However, Alejandro fell into the 10% minority as the franchise option best suited for him was in the insurance-based remediation industry.

PuroClean, “The Paramedics of Property Damage”, is a full-service remediation company focused on water damage, flood water removal, fire and smoke damage remediation, mold removal, and biohazard cleanup to commercial and residential customers. Alejandro was committed to this industry due to his experience, desire to make a difference in the community, and knowledge that these were services that would always be in demand. He loved PuroClean over other options in this industry based on their robust infrastructure, training and support, and national accounts.

Alejandro also used one of FranCoach’s premier financial partners, Benetrends to fund his franchise via their ROBS program.

PuroClean of southern Connecticut will be opening in late 2021. Please join us in congratulating Alejandro and his family on their new business.

“You have nothing to lose by having a conversation with FranCoach. Worst-case scenario, you discover you don’t want to touch this with a ten-foot pole. But best case, you figure out, hey this might be something for me and there are some possibilities here.”

Stephen, Arizona

“I remember when I first started exploring the idea of franchises and I found the Franchising 101 Podcast. I just got hooked. There were such good snippets of information and I started eating through them and listening to them all the time.”

Geoff, Pennsylvania

“The conversation we had, just on that first call, when you said, ‘Tell more about Ryan, what flips your switch, what gets you out of bed in the morning’… it was really important to me to know those things upfront.”

Ryan, Alabama

“One of the lessons that I learned very quickly was to focus on what is driving you as an individual. What makes you get up, and what do you want to get up and do every day?”

George, Pennsylvania

“If you have questions, if you want answers, or if you’re not sure if it’s for you – there’s no reason not to reach out to FranCoach.”
