SERVPRO Celebrates 50 years in Business!

Industry leader in cleanup and restoration services welcomes a record-breaking group of franchise owners and key staff at milestone event

Speonk, NY (Grassroots Newswire) July 16, 2019 - SERVPRO of The East End's owner, Rich Fevola, recently joined a record-breaking group of more than 2,500 franchise owners, key team members, and corporate representatives at the 50th Annual SERVPRO® Convention. The event, themed “Making History,” was held from June 24-28 at the Sacramento Convention Center in Sacramento, California, where the company was founded.

“Celebrating our 50th anniversary milestone made the SERVPRO Annual Convention even more special this year,” said Fevola, owner of SERVPRO of The East End. “One of the most important benefits of attending this annual event is having the opportunity to network with and learn from other franchise owners and team members. That benefit was especially evident this year. SERVPRO’s long history as an industry leader has produced a network of experienced, seasoned professionals who have responded to emergencies across the spectrum. This knowledge base is invaluable both to our business and to the community we stand ready to serve when the unexpected happens.”

The company’s 50th Annual Convention was a celebration of the company’s history and a showcase of small business best practices and cutting-edge restoration and remediation technology. The event featured a variety of workshops and group sessions ranging across 37 different topics. Franchisees and their key staff gained knowledge and hands-on experience to help them build and grow their businesses and strengthen ties with both residents and businesses in their local communities. Highlights of the convention included a keynote address by motivational speaker Jon Gordon and an awards ceremony recognizing the achievements of top-performing franchisees.

“SERVPRO has come a long way since Ted and Doris Isaacson started the company as a painting business in Sacramento in 1967,” said Rick Isaacson, chief executive officer of SERVPRO. “In 1969, they used their cleanup and restoration background to take their new company in a different direction and never looked back. SERVPRO’s professional services network now includes more than 1,700 individually owned and operated franchises across the U.S. and Canada. Our annual convention brings this diverse group of entrepreneurs together to learn from industry experts and each other about the latest innovations in disaster cleanup, restoration, and remediation services. We are proud of each of these dedicated professionals and the world-class service they provide to their customers and their communities.”

Why SERVPRO?

Following are just a few of the answers to that Question:

Culture

At SERVPRO of the East End we treat every home and business we enter as if it were our own. One of our goals is to treat everyone and everything as you would if it was our own family going through this loss. From a small stain on your carpet to three feet of raw sewage in a basement, we will treat your loss, your property and your family with the respect, compassion, consideration and professionalism you deserve. We know how difficult and unsettling a water damage, mold infestation, fire or pest infestation can be. We make it our business to mitigate as quickly, efficiently and painlessly as possible.

Communication

At SERVPRO of the East End we know that communication is key. When you experience a loss in your home or business, you have questions. We make it our business to have our experienced staff available to answer your questions.

We will keep you and your insurance company informed every step of the way.  We work on an approval only basis.  This means that we will only do the work that you as the homeowner and/or your insurance company has approved.  We want to make sure this process is as smooth and painless as possible. 

Dry First

At SERVPRO of The East End we believe in Applied Structural Drying. In simple terms, we do not want to come into your house and just start tearing things apart. We have invested a lot of time and assets into equipment, training, and tools that allow us to dry the structure with minimal disruption.  If there is a way to extract and mitigate the damage without tearing out floors and/or walls, we have the equipment and knowledge to do it.  By doing this, we minimize the disruption to your life and keep the overall cost of the loss down.

Highly Trained Specialists

Since first opening the doors in 1967, training has been the backbone of the SERVPRO brand and the reason for our success nationwide.  At SERVPRO of The East End, this is especially important to us.  We are an IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification) certified firm. The IICRC is a certification and Standards Developing Organization (SDO) non-profit organization that sets the standards for the inspection, cleaning and restoration industries. It is what most insurance companies base their standards on.  At SERVPRO of The East End, we make sure our employees meet those standards and our own.
