Chimney Sweep Franchise Beginnings

Midtown Chimney Sweeps Franchising was built by founder Byron Schramm. He is a second generation fireplace and chimney technician who wanted to create the system he always wished he had. He knew the components that a business in the hearth industry needed to be successful, and he was determined to put them together. He visited companies throughout the industry to discover what was working, and what wasn’t. As a result, Byron developed a world-class marketing and Customer Relationship Management system that gains customer’s loyalty and rewards the business owner. This system is the first full scale, systems-driven, marketing oriented chimney franchise in the U.S. and it’s now available to you.

With Midtown Chimney Sweeps, your business can hit the ground running.

Ideal Candidate

We are looking for owner-operators who have an existing job and will be expanding this new business until it reaches full time capacity for them and they quit their other job. We are also looking for owner-managers who will be using our business model to employ other people, specifically, a manager first and then other new hires after that. Our system is scaleable and allows owners to manage their business reports and see new booking activity that is happening within their business.
