Opening a Prism Specialties franchise may offer a more predictable outcome than investing in a completely new brand that could struggle to thrive in an already crowded and competitive industry.

What Might Make a Prism Specialties Franchise a Good Choice? 

With a vision of being "the expert of choice for specialty restoration services," Prism Specialties is committed to restoring and recovering electronics, appliances, art, documents, and textiles after a disaster occurs. They work on projects of all sizes, whether it be residential or commercial.

Prism Specialties uses a proven business model and works with state-of-the-art technology. They provide initial startup training as well as ongoing training and support. The company doesn't leave franchisees on their own. They assist in a handful of ways, including with marketing and via operation guides.

How To Open a Prism Specialties Franchise 

To be part of the Prism Specialties team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising, royalty, and potential renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company's set net worth and liquid capital requirements. 

Prism Specialties has partnered with third-party financial lenders that may help cover the costs of the franchise fee, startup, equipment, inventory, and accounts receivable.

Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement, you must perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. As part of your due diligence, you may want to speak to existing franchisees and ask questions to the Prism Specialties franchising team.
