What Is Nano-Concepts?
The premier slip-and-fall solutions opportunity is a best-bet investment
With more than 400 Nano-Concepts owner-operators working in North America and abroad, our proven concept has helped protect hundreds of small business owners against slip-and-fall injuries and potentially expensive litigation.
According to the National Safety Council, more than 9 million disabling slip-and-fall injuries occur every year. With a proven concept and a peerless commitment to innovative technology, our Nano-Concepts owner-operators have helped fast-food outlets, nursing homes, restaurants, office buildings, banks, hospitals, malls, spas, pool decks, garages, country clubs and public buildings become safe environments for customers, clients and co-workers, and spaces that are fully compliant with existing and forthcoming regulation for non-slip safety standards.
“Our services are far beyond the scope of what is currently on the market for small business owners,” says Charlie Werz, President and founder of Nano-Concepts. “We’ve made significant investments into technology that goes beyond applying a coating; rather it changes the floor on a microscopic level without changing its look and feel. After a Nano-Concepts owner-operator is done treating a floor with our proprietary Nano-Grip® solution, the floor is actually safer when it is wet than when it is dry. Our services are not only affordable for the small business owner, but when treated, the floors will also be compliant with standards for floor safety set by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).” In addition, we can show eligible small business owners how to use IRS Form 8826 to claim the disabled access tax credit to recoup the investment in their floor safety treatment.
Far more than floors: Nano-Concepts owner-operators have access to multiple revenue streams
While Nano-Concepts is known for its proven and state-of-the-art slip-and-fall solutions for homes and businesses, Nano-Concepts owner-operators have access to two other lucrative revenue streams. For a small investment, an owner-operator can purchase Nano-Clean™, a proven concept that utilizes environmentally responsible detergent-based solutions to thoroughly clean and restore the ceilings of commercial businesses. Nano-Clean is especially demanded in restaurants, where the buildup of grease, fumes and smoke can discolor the ceiling and lead to a buildup of bacteria that is a source of odors and unhealthy for employees.
Jim Thiede, a Nano-Concepts owner-operator in Michigan, has made a successful career based solely on cleaning the ceilings of small businesses with our proprietary Nano-Clean technology.
“When I looked at different services franchises and brands, I realized that Nano-Concepts offered the best return on investment, the most company support and a viable future,” Jim says. “With ceiling cleaning, there isn’t a lot of competition, which makes it relatively easy to win business. By starting with the demand in my local community, I have been able to forge relationships with several national chain restaurants, who hire me to clean the ceilings of their stores all across the country. The margins are very high, and because you only need one other employee, this business became quite profitable very quickly and has remained profitable for several years.”
Nano-Shield®, the new technology that is capable of rendering any surface essentially germ-free for a period of 90 days, is another potentially lucrative revenue stream that Nano-Concepts owner-operators can capitalize on. For known bastions of germs, such as hospitals, nursing homes, gyms and restaurants, this technology provides a much-needed, nontoxic solution.
“By removing and then inhibiting germs on the microscopic level, Nano-Shield technology affords the business community a ton of advantages,” Charlie says. “Since 80% of diseases are spread through cross-contamination, the use of the Nano-Shield can positively impact a worker’s productivity by decreasing time off due to illness. Nano-Shield also reduces odors caused by microbial buildup while eliminating mold, mildew and their damaging effect on surfaces, as well. It is quick to apply using electrostatic sprayers and dries invisibly on both fabrics and solid surfaces. Nano-Shield’s effectiveness can be demonstrated with our digital microbial testing device. The standard effective life of our treatment is 90 days, and this gives our owner-operators the ability to capitalize on a recurring revenue stream.”
Who are we looking for?
With three highly affordable and proven business models, Nano-Concepts is actively seeking passionate entrepreneurs who want to add a valued service in their communities. The costs and fees to become a Nano-Concepts owner-operator are less than $13,000 for the Nano-Grip floor safety business, and less than $10,000 for the Nano-Clean ceiling cleaning and restoration business. The Nano-Shield antimicrobial system is less than $6,000. With 400 owner-operators in North America and abroad already working to keep the business community profitable, safe and legally compliant, the time to open your Nano-Concepts business is now.
“One of my customers owns eight Tim Horton’s restaurants, and she told me that before I came along, she used to have three to eight workers compensation claims every year,” says Mickey Poulin, who owns a Nano-Concepts business in Canada. “Now she doesn’t have any, so the impact of the Nano-Concepts services is very palpable to the small business owner. In four months, I had paid off my investment into this business, and the demand for my services has remained constant for seven years.”
Nano-Concepts is the premier slip-and-fall solutions provider for small businesses
With more than 400 owner-operators working across North America, Nano-Concepts has become the premier slip-and-fall solutions provider. According to the National Safety Council, more than 9 million disabling slip-and-fall injuries occur every year. With a proven concept and a peerless commitment to innovative technology, our Nano-Concepts owner-operators have helped fast-food outlets, nursing homes, restaurants, office buildings, banks, hospitals, malls, spas, pool decks, garages, country clubs and public buildings become safe environments for customers, clients and co-workers and spaces that are fully compliant with existing and forthcoming regulation for non-slip safety standards.
Nano-Concepts has invested significantly in technologies that have a profound impact on the safety of the business community. Unlike the competition, Nano-Concepts doesn’t apply a nonslip coating to floors; it uses a proprietary solution called Nano-Grip®, which changes the surface of the floor on a microscopic level without changing the look or feel of any given floor. After a floor is treated, the Nano-Grip solution is tested using a digital device to measure if the floor is compliant with OSHA and ADA standards. This is a win-win for the small business owner, who often can leverage this treatment to negotiate a lower rate from their insurance company, or possibly get fully reimbursed through a tax credit. The owner also gets the peace of mind of knowing that his or her employees and customers are safe as they walk around the business.
“We’ve developed a business model that centers on the very straightforward idea that small businesses in every community need to guard against slip-and-fall injuries and litigation,” says Charlie Werz, President and founder of Nano-Concepts. “You don’t need to be a good salesperson to be successful in this business, but you do need the drive to go out in your community and explain the benefits. Once you’ve made an introduction, you conduct a demonstration for a business owner. They can see the difference in their floors right away. They can see that the floor is safer wet then when it’s dry. It is very straightforward, and the demand remains constant.”
Nano-Grip is protecting people from slip-and-fall injuries and businesses from potentially expensive litigation
Nano-Concepts is experiencing explosive growth by capitalizing on three universal trends:
1) Slip-and-fall injuries are a tremendous problem for employers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that nearly a million people are injured as a result of a slip-and-fall every year. One lawsuit can shutter a small business forever, so responsible business owners are seeking solutions to protect their business and employees.
2) If the threats of costly lawsuits aren’t enough, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) just announced the new more rigorous standards for safe floors will go into effect in August of 2016. Businesses that do not comply with the new standards can be subject to OSHA fines for non compliance. In addition to OSHA standards, employers are mandated under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to guard against slip-and-fall hazards.
3) In a market that includes nearly every commercial business as a potential customer, the slip-and-fall solutions industry remains fragmented. This positions Nano-Concepts to capture a significant share of a booming market.
A simple Google search of “slip and fall” is a terrific way to measure the seriousness of slip-and-fall injuries. Inevitably, the first page is littered with lawyers advertising their services to help the unfortunate business owner who is dealing with litigation or to help the unfortunate slip-and-fall injury victim sue a business owner. Industrial Safety and Hygiene News published an article in August 2015 stating that slip-and-fall injuries are not only “responsible for 25% of all occupational injuries that require time off work, but they’re also notoriously difficult to solve.”
