Lightspeed Restoration


About Us

Lightspeed Restoration isn’t like other restoration companies. We are part of the Home Franchise Concepts family of brands, one of the largest franchise systems in North America. We provide a wealth of marketing resources, continued support, and exceptional franchisee mentoring to help you succeed in the $210 billion restoration industry. Home Franchise Concepts is a subsidiary of JM Family Enterprises, Inc, a privately held company with $18B in annual revenues, providing leadership and stability like no other.

As the owner of your own business, you will manage your team of IICRC-certified technicians extensively trained to address standing water, fire and smoke damage, mold, and indoor air quality issues. You will deliver the next level of restoration services to your customers as rapidly as possible so that they count on you whenever disaster strikes. And you’ll be able to count on the Lightspeed Home Office team, our 24/7 call center, and a franchise support team to call on when you need them.

Why Franchise With Us

Lightspeed Restoration’s executive, leadership, and support teams have over 150 years of combined experience in the restoration industry. We provide the guidance and resources you need to get residential and commercial customers back on their feet quickly after disaster strikes. Along with exceptional training and support, our franchise owners receive:

• 24/7/365 national call center support, at no cost to the franchise owner so you know the minute a customer needs help.

• Training on the ins and outs of working with insurance carriers, to streamline the water or fire damage claims process (and get paid quicker!).

• Loans to keep your cash flow going during catastrophic events (with no credit check!)

We have a state-of-the-art Flood House - #22 in the US – which is a $200K house built inside our Experience Center in Dallas that we use to train franchisees and their teams from mold remediation to flood damage restoration.

Other benefits of franchising with Lightspeed Restoration is our equipment rental program. Franchisees can rent equipment at a heavy discount to help with catastrophic events. Our competitors typically make their franchisees pay for this type of equipment as part of their start-up costs. But not us!

Franchise Training

Our new franchisee Academy Training lasts for 13-15 days and is conducted both virtually and in person at our Experience Center in Dallas. The classroom and hands-on training portion consists of 80 hours spread over 10 days.

You will learn everything you need to know to start strong – from administration, office set-up, and technology, to water damage restoration training where we flood the Lightspeed flood house to replicate situations you will encounter working in the business. This real-world simulation allows our experienced instructors to teach hands-on advanced mitigation and restoration techniques, cleaning methods, and demonstrate using the latest equipment and technology so you can walk onto your first job already confident in your restoration skills.

Ideal Candidate 

When looking for great franchisees, we pay attention to driven individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit, a passion for helping people, and a knack for sales, solving problems, and exceptional customer service. Our ideal franchise owner is eager to learn the ropes to own and run their own business.
