A Brief History of SERVPRO

SERVPRO Industries was initially launched as a painting business in 1967 in Sacramento, California by Ted and Doris Isaacson. With a background in cleaning and restoration, the business was transformed into a franchisor of cleanup and restoration specialists. After selling its first franchise in 1969, SERVPRO continued to grow, developing a highly regarded national brand.

SERVPRO relocated the corporate headquarters from Sacramento to Gallatin, Tennessee in 1988. At the time of the relocation, SERVPRO consisted of 647 franchises. The company sold its 1,000th franchise in 2000.

To accommodate the growth, SERVPRO headquarters moved to a bigger facility in 2005. In 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2019, SERVPRO was listed as one of the top Tennessee workplaces in The Tennessean.

The Blackstone Group acquired a majority stake in SERVPRO Industries, LLC in March 2019. The Isaacsons still maintain a small portion of the stock. Rick Isaacson was promoted from EVP to Chief Executive Officer of SERVPRO after Randy Isaacson and Sue Steen retired. 

Today, SERVPRO has more than 1,700 franchises in the United States and Canada. The brand, built around a family, has now grown to employ thousands in a bigger family. The SERVPRO team is here to help. Call us if you need anything at (816) 884-2240.
