What is a Chimney Sweep Franchisee?

Are Most Chimney Sweeps Owner Operators?

Many Chimney Sweeps are owner operators (over 85% in the US) and as such they are busy doing physical work. This makes it difficult to answer the phone because one’s hands are full! And if one hires an answering service one is only halfway there- how does someone who doesn’t know the territory logically book your jobs so you don’t criss-cross town? Midtown Chimney Sweeps Franchising is a system-driven chimney sweeping franchise opportunity. Midtown is the only nationwide brand of chimney service that is marketing-oriented and supporting individually owned and operated franchisees in the hearth industry.
