PuroClean’s Rising Star in the Southeast

We are excited to announce the newest owner of PuroClean: James “Blake” Daughtry. An entrepreneur who wants to continue working for himself, Blake is passionate about bringing PuroClean to his community.

Who Is Blake Daughtry?

Blake holds a Bachelor of Science degree from Troy University in Physical Science and Math – but that is not even his proudest achievement. Blake is a father of two, and he is also an entrepreneur. He considers starting and building up his medical waste disposal company one of his greatest successes. But after selling his company to a large corporation, Blake wasn’t sure if he could stomach going back to the corporate world.

Why Did Blake Make a Career Change?

Having experienced the benefits of owning his own business, Blake wanted another opportunity to go out on his own and work for himself. With that in mind, franchise ownership was a clear path toward that goal – and Blake came to FranCoach looking for guidance in finding the right franchise for his needs, goals, and expectations.

Blake worked with FranCoach’s Katie Lepper to vet several home services franchise opportunities and discover one that aligned with what he was looking for. From the beginning of the Discovery Process, PuroClean stood out as an attractive option in an industry that Blake was already familiar with, and in the end, it was a clear choice.

Why Will Blake Make a Great Franchise Owner?

Katie Lepper, Blake’s franchise coach, helped guide him through the process of determining the perfect franchise for him. Here’s what Katie has to say about why Blake is sure to excel as a PuroClean owner:

“Blake is a go-getter, and he likes to stay busy. He always works hard and puts everything that he can into something. With PuroClean, he’s getting into an industry where he already has experience – plus, he genuinely has a big heart and cares a lot about helping others. PuroClean loves Blake just as much as he loves them, and he will shine as an owner.”

Why Did Blake Choose PuroClean?

PuroClean is a property damage restoration franchise that offers a comprehensive suite of services including water, fire, smoke, mold, and biohazard remediation. Offering its owners strong support and multiple revenue streams, PuroClean is a well-recognized name in the low-risk, high-reward property restoration industry.

With Blake’s location in the Southeast, where lots of hurricanes hit and numerous rental properties need maintenance, PuroClean’s restoration and property damage repair offerings were a no-brainer. Due to his previous career experience, Blake already understood the biohazard cleanup and waste disposal industries, and he is excited to bring PuroClean to a community that can benefit from local support.

Blake built strong relationships with the PuroClean team throughout the Discovery Process, especially Steve Griffith, the company’s Franchise Development Director. Attending a virtual Meet the Team Day confirmed that PuroClean was indeed his perfect fit.

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Blake Daughtry and wishing him luck as a new owner of PuroClean.
