From Pharmaceutical Sales Rep to Franchisee
Play • 36 min

After losing his Pharmaceutical sales job to a failed startup company, Kelley Gallagher realized that he had to take control over his own destiny to provide for his family. Kelley applied to job after job but wasn't getting much, if any, traction.Taking matters into his own hands, Kelley started his photography business as an attempt at self-rescue, weeks before the country shut down due to COVID-19. In 2021, KB Media Group, Inc. shot over $1 billion worth of real estate listings. His success in the real estate space came with lots of strong connections and the identification of a need many homes face as they're prepared for sale, namely carpet-cleaning. So Kelley started looking into carpet-cleaning franchises to buy as a way to leverage his existing real estate relationships. In this episode, Kelley explains why he chose ChemDry, what his day-to-day looks like, and what it takes to win as a franchisee.
