The History of SERVPRO
In 1967 Ted and Doris Isaacson started SERVPRO as a painting business located in Sacramento, California. But with a background in the cleaning and restoration, Ted and Doris soon transformed the company into a franchisor of cleanup and restoration specialists. Their business grew and they soon began selling franchises. In 1979, SERVPRO acquired the Bristol-Myers Domesticare Division and its 175 Franchises.
In a strategic move to place itself within 600 miles of 50% of the U.S. population, SERVPRO relocated the corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, Tennessee, in 1988. At the time of the relocation, the SERVPRO system consisted of 647 Franchises.
In 2005, SERVPRO moved to a 140,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Gallatin to provide more room for expansion.
SERVPRO continues to grow and now has more than 1,700 Franchises operating in the United States and Canada. There will always be a need for experienced, trained and professional cleanup and restoration experts. With a proud history, a successful present and a bright future, SERVPRO will press on toward becoming the premier cleaning and restoration company.
