Firemans Contractors, Inc., a commercial contractor offering business to business commercial franchises and services in the pavement maintenance and parking lot maintenance industry, announced today that the opportunity to expand the company’s franchise into Louisiana has presented itself at an accelerated rate due to an estimated $30+ million dollars in potential aid required to repair damaged roads and other state infrastructure, in the wake of Hurricane Isaac.

“We are currently eligible to franchise in 37 states,” stated Renee Gilmore, CEO of Firemans Contractors. “While it is our intention to systematically market our franchise in each eligible state, natural disasters do create opportunities that cause us to slightly augment our roll-out plan. Having the ability to capture some of the lucrative prospective business in Louisiana, or anywhere else in the country for that matter – where disaster has stuck – has been made more probable for Firemans due to our recently launched Franchise Model. Franchising is indeed one of the most advantageous expansion efforts Firemans has made to date.”
