Values & History

Based in Melbourne, FL, The Grout BOSS was founded by US Army veteran Eric Tirado in 2006. Drawing on 15 years of industry experience, the so-called "Godfather of Grout" built his family-owned grout restoration business from the ground up and has since turned his successful model into a fast-growing franchise that helps hard-working men and women get a piece of the American dream. The Grout BOSS values the dedication and service of veterans, offering a path to successful re-entry into the workforce.

Industry Performance

US home improvement sales reached $394 billion in 2018, and sales are projected to swell to $465 billion by 2022. The industry is expected to grow by 5.5% over the next year. The average cost to repair tile & grout falls between $260 and $593, with an average price of $424. High-end projects could total over $900. Home repairs due to national disaster, repairing damage due to age, or cleaning in preparation for sale of the property accounted for over 30% of home renovations in 2018.

Training & Support

The Grout BOSS features a rigorous training program that empowers owners with everything necessary to handle the majority of tile and grout repair and restoration that one can expect to encounter. Owners will spend a substantial amount of time at our training facility in Melbourne, FL, receiving instruction on established business processes and best practices. Franchisees will receive guided assistance in all aspects of business opening and management. An extensive social media policy including best practices will be available to those interested in social media management and marketing. As there is no associated build-out, franchisees will be in business as soon as training is completed.

Ideal Candidate & Qualifications

The ideal Grout BOSS franchisee will be a self-starter driven to success. Well-organized and open-minded individuals are preferred. The best candidates will be people comfortable working with their hands in a labor environment, including tradesmen and craftsmen young and old who want to run their own business. Former military service members looking for a new career are encouraged to apply. A desire to help people in the community and the ability to develop lasting quality relationships with homeowners and staff is a key ingredient to future success.
