Entrepreneurs to Meet Local Demand for Commercial and Residential Restoration Specialists

RANDOLPH, N.J. – Delta Restoration Services®, a nationally recognized and award-winning franchise brand that provides restoration services to commercial and residential properties, announced today that it has inked a franchise agreement with entrepreneur Bruce Marcus to open a location serving the Central and Northern New Jersey region. It is slated to open in late April and will be located at 111 Canfield Avenue, Unit A18 in Randolph. 

This is the first New Jersey location for the growing franchise brand.

Owned and operated locally by Bruce Marcus, Delta Restoration Services will provide a reliable, experienced solution to those who encounter a loss and require restoration services – whether it involves flood and water damage; smoke and fire damage; or mold damage and environmental testing. Notably, Marcus has owned and operated a thriving Chem-Dry® Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning franchise in the region since 1992, and he and his family have operated multiple Merry Maids franchises in Northern New Jersey since 1986. Through his Chem-Dry business and a separate water damage company, Marcus and his team of five employees possess significant water damage experience. He plans to expand that line of work substantially through his new Delta Restoration Services franchise. In the near term, Marcus plans to hire two full-time employees to support the operation and the expanded services he will be offering.

Local property owners experience significant water and mold damage, so there’s a substantial need in the region for restoration experts, unfortunately,

said Bruce Marcus, owner of Delta Restoration Services of Central and Northern New Jersey.

The services we will offer and our insurance-friendly approach will be extremely valuable to the area. I’m proud to be able to help alleviate stress for residents across the area who experience a loss and assist them in getting back on their feet. I’ve been incredibly impressed with the Delta Restoration Services model – from the cloud-based project management platform to their intensive training regimen and top-notch support team – and I’m confident that we’ll be ready to serve the community well when we open our doors.

A true family business, Marcus plans to operate his Delta Restoration Services franchise alongside his wife, sister, brother-in-law, and parents.

Delta Restoration Services provides restoration solutions to both its residential and commercial clients. Its services cover damage from flood and water, smoke and fire, mold and other environmental conditions, as well as additional services such as contents restoration and reconstruction. The organization also has a significant company-owned operation in the competitive Denver market that serves as a model franchise and provides continual learning and benefits to franchise owners in areas including research and development and training. Franchise owners also benefit from the company’s seamless, highly-integrated communication platform that tracks projects from initial call through completion, incorporating all documentation and providing real-time access.

“We recently launched an aggressive growth strategy to become a dominant force in the restoration industry in the coming years, and it’s exciting to see this plan coming to fruition so quickly,” said Mike Mastous, founder and president of Delta Restoration Services. “We welcome Bruce to the Delta Restoration Services family as a new franchise owner as well as the rest of his team, and we’re thrilled to have him represent our brand in the Central and Northern New Jersey region. The team’s experience and talents will help us further expand in the area, and Bruce’s strong business management acumen and dedication to the community will deliver significant benefits for home and business owners in the area who experience property damage.”

HRI Holdings, Inc. (HRI) acquired Delta Restoration Services in late March 2018. Under the direction of HRI, parent company to the Chem-Dry® Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning and N-Hance® Wood Refinishing franchise businesses, Delta Restoration Services is benefitting from the organization’s proven ability to scale concepts. In the near term, HRI and Delta Restoration Services are teaming up to build a new, world-class flood house training facility in Denver near the brand’s headquarters that will allow for a higher-grade hands-on training and education experience for their franchise owners and employees.

In addition to its market-leading technology platform, Delta Restoration Services distinguishes itself with thorough and rigorous education for its staff. In fact, its certification requirements put Delta Restoration Services franchisees in the top one percent of restoration companies nationwide. Further, the brand has strong relationships with insurance carriers and third-party administrators who value the company’s technology, ease of communication, highly-trained employees and superior quality of work. 

Currently, Delta Restoration Services has operations in more than 30 markets, including its corporately run territory in Denver. Franchise units operate in California, Utah, Colorado, Texas, Oregon, Washington, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Missouri and Indiana.
