We’re Searching for Survivalists

We’ve realized those that flourish within our system are a special breed of survivalists – they are fighters who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and they don’t take no for an answer. They realize the gravity of the responsibility they have assumed; it is their job to restore hope to home and business owners who may have lost absolutely everything else.

Support Would Be an Understatement

Our reputation and rich history in the industry has attracted the best of the best trainers – true industry icons – who we are lucky to work with hand-in-hand.

At Rainbow International, we view our unique and extensive training more as a rite of passage than merely a step in the process. It lays the groundwork for the uncommon bond and special spirit shared by the entire Rainbow International organization.

• Two Hands-On Weeks in Waco - You’ll join us at our state-of-the-art flood house and fire training center to experience fire and flood cleanup firsthand.

• Post-Waco Training - You’ll spend time onsite with one of our successful owner/operators and put your new skills to the test. This is a very structured opportunity to bring it all together and prepare you for accountability in your own market.

Technical training aside, we know you have a business to run, which is why we support you with best practices at every turn.

• Franchise Business Coach - You’ll receive regularly scheduled visits from your seasoned FBC and they are available to you for advice, day or night.

• Awareness in Your Area - Rightly so, disaster relief is not something people think about very often. That’s why we continuously promote national awareness campaigns on your behalf, so that when the need does arise, Rainbow International becomes top-of-mind. In combination with your local digital marketing efforts, Rainbow should also rise to the top of online search.

• Powerful Proprietary Technology - Our custom business management software simplifies your day-to-day administrative duties. It’s an all-in-one system for job estimates, tracking leads, assistance with leadership, workplace culture and more.

Rainbow franchise owners are collaborators willing to help one another 24/7. Access to this extended network of like-minded individuals is an invaluable advantage to being part of a franchise system.
