How Big Is the Industry?
Nearly 28 million small businesses operate in the United States; all of them need Nano-Concepts solutions for three important problems
Small businesses are often and rightly called the engine of the American economy. According to Forbes, nearly 28 million small businesses operate in the United States, and all of them need to provide safe, clean and hospitable conditions for their employees and customers.
Forbes reports that small businesses employ more than 50% of the working population in the U.S. and have provided “65% of all new jobs since 1995.” In essence, it is vital to keep the nation’s small businesses thriving, their employees safe and healthy, and their customers safe and satisfied.
Enter Nano-Concepts. While the service industry is awash with brands that fail to live up to their promises, Nano-Concepts has a proven business model and a reputation built on expertise and customer trust, which is an immediate benefit to new owner-operators. We have established ourselves as a preeminent brand with a commitment to innovation, and our owner-operators enjoy this legacy the day they open their doors.
Nano-Concepts protects your investment. Unlike our competition, Nano-Concepts owner-operators have exclusive rights to our proprietary Nano-Grip® technology. Nano-Concepts products are not and will never be sold on the open market; owner-operators purchase their inventory directly from the corporate team and can thereby offer a world-class and proven solution that leaves our competitors in the dust.
“We’ve developed three business models that directly address three problems small business owners face every day: 1) guard against slip-and-fall accidents, 2) environmentally responsible ceiling cleaning and restoration, and 3) a germ-free environment,” 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 introduce the benefits. Once you’ve made an introduction and provide a demonstration, the service sells itself.”
Nano-Concepts services are always in demand
Nano-Concepts offers three unique services that solve three specific problems for our growing base of commercial customers.
Nano-Grip®: 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,” Charlie says. “We’ve made significant investments into technology that goes beyond applying a coating; rather, it changes the floors on a microscopic level without changing the look and feel of a floor. After a Nano-Concepts owner-operator is finished treating a floor with our proprietary Nano-Grip solution, the floor is actually safer when it’s wet than when it’s dry. Our services are affordable for the business community, and when treated the floors will 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
Nano-Clean™: For a small investment, an owner-operator can purchase Nano-Clean, a proven concept that utilizes environmentally responsible detergent-based solutions to thoroughly clean the ceilings of commercial buildings. Nano-Clean is highly demanded in restaurants, where the buildup of grease, fumes and smoke can lead to a discoloration that is unhealthy for employees, unappealing to customers, and can result in health department citations.
“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,” says Jim Thiede, a Nano-Concepts owner-operator in Michigan. “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 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 small business owner 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. It is quick to apply using electrostatic sprayers and dries invisibly on fabrics and solid surfaces. The standard effective life of our treatment is 90 days, unlike the extremely temporary protection afforded by common liquid disinfectants.”
