About 911 RESTORATION Franchise
From Small Business to Market Leader
Currently ranked among the top restoration franchises in the nation by Entrepreneur, 911 Restoration began as a small carpet cleaning business taken over by two of its former employees: Idan Shpizear and Peleg Lindenberg.
Before becoming business partners, Idan and Peleg were army buddies who established a lifelong friendship through the trials and tribulations of boot camp and 22-mile marches. After leaving the military, they moved to Los Angeles, California, in search of lucrative business opportunities. All they had was a couple thousand dollars and a one-bedroom apartment, but their determined pursuit of the American Dream transformed the duo from carpet cleaners to company owners in only a year. They soon expanded their services to include fire cleanup and water damage restoration and explored innovative strategies for growing their business. Idan spent 10,000 hours learning online marketing techniques, and within 18 months, their restoration brand had grown from earning $15,000 to $150,000 a month in sales.
Leading the Industry with the Fresh Start Philosophy
By 2005, 911 Restoration had become a thriving restoration company. When Hurricane Katrina struck Louisiana, Idan joined colleagues from all over the country who flocked to New Orleans to help the community rebuild.
Given their own story of struggle and hard-earned success, Idan and Peleg adopted the Fresh Start philosophy — a deeply held belief that every challenge is an opportunity to rebuild stronger and better than before. During his visit to New Orleans, Idan found that this philosophy enabled him to serve not only local property owners, but also the colleagues he met along the way.
Idan got to know many restoration business owners who complained about challenges that were all too familiar to him. They weren’t seeing the growth they wanted. They had hit a plateau in profits and didn’t know what to do differently. Idan saw an opportunity to offer his colleagues the same Fresh Start he provided to his customers. He began to share his business expertise and online marketing knowledge. He mentored other entrepreneurs and guided promising businesses through professional hardship to discover new opportunities and a brighter future on the other side.
When Idan and Peleg realized that they had the skills to grow not only their own business, but others’ as well, the team recognized a chance to expand 911 Restoration even more. In 2008, the 911 Restoration franchise was born.
911 Restoration: An Industry Innovator
Now serving more than 150 million people in the US and Canada, 911 Restoration has become one of the fastest growing franchises in the United States. Today, we are no less driven to innovate and expand than we were in those early days of problem solving together in a one-bedroom Los Angeles apartment. It is because of this consistent determination — and the help of a brilliant team — that 911 Restoration now boasts some of the most sophisticated systems in the restoration industry.
Idan and his team have created their own tools for business management and development, reporting, and sales. They’ve streamlined systems so every franchise owner is set up for productivity, efficiency, and success. One of the company’s most notable innovations is Gazingle, an in-house CRM and app allowing franchisees to track leads, close sales, and manage receivables.
911 Restoration also birthed Milestone SEO, an internet marketing engine originally designed to support the growth of 911 Restoration. Headed by Chief Operating Officer Miri Offir, Milestone SEO has become a game-changing solution for both 911 Restoration franchise owners and a broad spectrum of small business clients who dream of moving into a more sustainable pattern of company growth.
Idan Shpizear has quickly emerged as a thought leader in the realm of entrepreneurship and restoration management. Idan and Miri have supported and worked with thousands of business owners, guiding them through the growing pains that come with building a business and helping them turn today’s challenges into opportunities for growth. And that transformation begins not just with new tools and techniques, but with a change in attitude as well.
A Company Culture Built for Success
911 Restoration continues to grow steadily day by day, guided by a clearly defined company culture that is as important at the franchise level as it is at company headquarters.
The nationwide 911 Restoration team values clarity, growth, and accountability. Together, Idan and Miri have worked to promote clear expectations for company representatives. Miri’s innovative efforts for defining 911 Restoration culture have ensured that employees and franchises alike are set up for personal and professional success.
As far as Idan is concerned, the success of 911 Restoration is evidence that an entrepreneur possesses limitless potential, if only they are willing to push through the struggle and reach for opportunities to evolve and learn.

Company culture, especially in the disaster restoration industry, is extremely important. That’s because small business owners, entrepreneurs, and anyone looking for new restoration franchise opportunities all want to work with a company that reflects their own values.
- How our 911 Restoration Franchise Created a Fresh Start Culture
At 911 Restoration, we’ve created a company culture throughout headquarters that encourages our team to be bold, innovate, express new ideas, and make the world a better place. This “Fresh Start attitude” extends to our local restoration franchise branches as well.
- Here at the Fresh Start Company we not only work together, but we also form lifelong friendships and memories while inspiring one another to “be the difference,” which is one of our company mottos. Whether we’re gathering for birthday celebrations, volunteering at local events, attending franchise conventions, or sharing daily laughs, there is always a reason to smile at 911 Restoration.

Franchise Description: 911 Restoration Franchise Inc. is the franchisor. The franchised business provides emergency clean-up from fire damage, water damage, mold damage and mold inspections, carpet cleaning, duct cleaning and crawl space cleaning. The franchisor offers traditional franchises, conversion franchises, and micro-market franchises.
Training Overview: The franchisor will offer a training program to provide franchisees and their designated supervisory or managerial personnel to be conducted at the franchisor’s headquarters in Van Nuys, California. This training generally lasts for six days. The franchisor may provide additional advisory assistance and training that it deems necessary on the terms and conditions as it sets forth in the manual. The franchisor may periodically telephone or visit franchisees for the purposes of rendering advice and consultation with respect to the operation of the franchised business, assessing their overall performance and determining whether they are conducting the franchised business in compliance with the standards of the system. Once a year, at their cost and expense, franchisees must attend the franchisor’s annual refresher training program, which will be held at the franchisor’s headquarters or at another location it designates. In its discretion, the franchisor may choose to hold an annual meeting or convention of its franchisees to conduct additional training, announce new products and/or services or discuss any other matters of interest. If and when held, the annual meeting or convention will be mandatory for all franchisees.
Territory Granted: The Franchise Agreement grants franchisees the right to operate their business at the single location designated in the Franchise Agreement and only within the designated, exclusive territory described in the Franchise Agreement. The size of the territory is determined based on population and the franchisee’s territory. To maintain territorial protection under the Franchise Agreement, franchisees must be in good standing under the Franchise Agreement and achieve a minimum gross revenue during the second and each subsequent year of the term of the Franchise Agreement.
Obligations and Restrictions: Franchisees must at all times faithfully, honestly, and diligently perform their contractual obligations. System standards may regulate the staffing levels and employee and/or independent contractor's qualifications, training, dress, and appearance of the franchised business. Franchisees need not participate full-time in the day-to-day operation of the franchised business, but they must devote substantial and continuing efforts to the operation of the franchised business. If they do not participate in the daily operations, franchisees must hire a manager to oversee the franchised business’ daily operation. Franchisees must operate the franchised business in an efficient and professional manner following the highest ethical and moral standards. Franchisees must comply with all standards of quality and service prescribed by the franchisor. In order to be in good standing, a franchise should undertake its best efforts to try to maintain a 70/30 mix between mitigation and construction.

Financial Assistance: In its discretion and if franchisees meet its criteria, the franchisor may offer to finance up to 50% of the actual initial franchise fee.

A Fresh Take On Sports: 911 Restoration of Charlotte Community Outreach
- Take On Sports is a sports program for special needs athletes, mostly consisting of children and designed to enable those with physical or mental disabilities the opportunity to play their favorite sports.
- 911 Restoration of Charlotte franchise owner Tim Crane is excited to sponsor the organization and show his support for the community:
- “We had been actively looking for a grassroots organization within our community to adopt and give back to. We found exactly that with Take on Sports. It feels great to provide kids with a Fresh Start and make a positive impact on our local special needs community.”
A Fresh Start Alliance for the Future
At 911 Restoration we believe that everyone deserves a fresh start, regardless of their age or circumstances. That is why it should come as no surprise that a lot of the work we do in the community involves helping kids and making a difference in the local youth’s lives.
911 Restoration CEO Idan Shpizear recently visited Santee High School in Los Angeles as part of the Youth Business Alliance (YBA), a locally funded organization that focuses on bringing business skills and perspectives into the classroom by bringing business executives in to educate, inspire, and motivate students.
Idan talked to the Santee students about staying positive, helping others, and making a difference in people’s lives.
“I absolutely love speaking to kids and sparking their imagination to the idea that anything is possible. If you can envision a different future for yourself, you can actually go out and achieve it. That’s the Fresh Start attitude.”
Idan will return to Santee High on November 11 to speak and follow up on the YBA program’s progress as well as any projects or presentations the students have created.
Idan is extremely passionate about helping kids so in addition to his work with the YBA he also spends some time every month volunteering at his own children’s school. That way, he gets to give back while also enjoying extra time with his kids.
