SandFree was developed because customers demanded it. They refused to get their floors sanded until they moved out of their house due to the dust, the odor, and the inconvenience. Although customers would pay the same amount as sanding to refinish their floors with no dust, the costs to do SandFree are so low, most franchisees price the work at 1/2 the cost of sanding. That still leaves a huge gross margin. In addition to a huge gross margin, SandFree provides a Call Center for inbound inquiries. Not only are your customers handled by experienced sales people, you don’t have to have an office, administrative help, rent, heat, desks, or other overhead. You share a database with the Call Center enabling them to send out proposals immediately with copies to you. Then, you’ll call your customer, and schedule the work. Aside from advertising, and small expenses, most of the gross profit goes to you. For $35,000 you get a 500,000 person territory, all of your equipment, a computer with software, uniforms, marketing media, an inventory, uniforms, training, a hotel room for training, and we paint/wrap/letter your van to make it a moving billboard. SandFree can recolor wood. This is extremely important because if you aren’t addressing the color issues in a floor, you will not have a satisfied customer. We make our ColorMagiQ which is a topical stain. Common stains are penetrating – they need to be applied to raw wood to change the color of the floor. ColorMagiQ is a topical stain which can be colored infinitely- you aren’t limited to 15 standard colors. You can do – green, red, blue, orange – whatever. SandFree is not only for wood. We sent men to St. Louis to refinish the concrete at the Pulitzer Foundation of Art. SandFree is not only for interior jobs. We recolored and refinished the black granite on the exterior of a Ritz-Carlton. SandFree is unique in the way that it has solved so many problems. One restaurant had wide steps and people were slipping. We developed a way to add traction to the urethane finish so that the tripping was eliminated. SandFree is great for commercial work in addition to residential work. Residential work is the bulk of the footage, but the commercial work is the bulk of the profit. Museums, restaurants, gyms, sports facilities, racquetball courts, stages, auditoriums are all appreciative commercial customers because we resolved their problems. Let’s face it – how are you going to sand an auditorium with 5,000 seats? SandFree is the perfect solution for that. And, these commercial accounts are repeat customers. Every Tuesday night at 8:30 EDT, there is a SandFree webinar. You should come to one to completely understand the opportunity.

Businesses often have important “intellectual property” that needs protection from competitors for the company to stay profitable. This could require patents, copyrights, trademarks, or preservation of trade secrets. Most businesses have names, logos, and similar branding techniques that could benefit from trademarking. Patents and copyrights in the United States are largely governed by federal law, while trade secrets and trademarking are mostly a matter of state law. Because of the nature of intellectual property, a business needs protection in every jurisdiction in which they are concerned about competitors. Many countries are signatories to international treaties concerning intellectual property, and thus companies registered in these countries are subject to national laws bound by these treaties. In order to protect trade secrets, companies may require employees to sign noncompete clauses which will impose limitations on an employee’s interactions with stakeholders, and competitors.
