ServiceMaster Restore is a top-performing ServiceMaster franchise with over 45 employees, a 35 vehicle fleet and servicing five counties in the region. ServiceMaster Restore does it all: Water, fire, smoke, mold, trauma, biohazard, hoarding, odor / pathogen control, reconstruction and more.
ServiceMaster Restore is owned by Brian Greer, a former college football coach turned restoration industry entrepreneur. After college, Brian was coaching football at Willamette University, and dating the daughter of a ServiceMaster franchise owner. As Brian puts it, “My future wife encouraged me to job shadow her father.” He was immediately drawn into the industry as he was quick to see the effect a restoration company can have on those in a time of need.
Drawn indeed. Brian joined the family business in 2001, as a fire project manager. He was quickly promoted to general manager and then moved into ownership mode by acquiring and purchasing the Corvallis ServiceMaster franchise in 2004. He purchased ServiceMaster of Salem in 2011 from his father-in-law which has kept this ServiceMaster franchise in the family for over 36 years.
What has helped Brian grow an already successful business is appreciating the constant change that can occur. He has utilized his networking and friendships with numerous franchise owners who provided him with expert guidance and mentorship — which he truly appreciated during tougher times in the industry.
He also cites his loyal and dedicated staff, which has been an integral part of the company’s success. Proof of this is the fact that since 2011 the company has doubled its revenues.
ServiceMaster Restore was started in 1980 by Craig and Kathy Healy to service Marion and Polk counties in Oregon. The Healy family started with a used carpet cleaning machine and a truck. From there they grew the business and added disaster restoration and construction.
When Brian joined the company in 2001, there was a staff of 15. A sales and marketing strategy was implemented and the business rapidly grew. In 2004, Linn and Benton counties were purchased to be part of the franchise and in 2011, Brian and his wife Kelly purchased the company from Kelly’s parents.
Business continued to boom. And in January of 2016, Brian — along with his general manager Noel McClorey — purchased an existing ServiceMaster franchise in Lincoln City, Oregon.
Today, ServiceMaster Restore is a top 100 business with ServiceMaster servicing Marion, Polk, Linn, Benton and Lincoln Counties. And Brian isn’t done. He plans to continue to grow market share for his company.
As others have helped him, Brian enjoys helping fellow business owners in the restoration industry. As he says, “To be successful, you have to be willing to take chances. When taking on new projects that are unfamiliar to you, do your research, work hard, trust your gut and always be ethical.”
