After moving into a new home, Joe Lunsford discovered that several furniture pieces had been damaged. He tried to get them repaired but was unhappy with the service and the work that was done. Lunsford began his own furniture repair service, Furniture Medic, in 1992.
ServiceMaster acquired the company in 1996. Today, there are 200 franchises across the US and the UK. Entrepreneur listed the company as #233 on their list of The Fastest Growing Franchises in the US in 2017.
The company was also listed as #26 on Entrepreneur’s list of Top 100 Franchises for Less than $100K in 2018.
The company offers furniture repair, restoration, and remodeling services. Furniture Medic recently introduced an app that allows potential clients to snap photos of damaged furniture and upload it to the Furniture Medic franchise nearest to them. Estimates for repairs can be given without a service call or dragging the furniture to the location.
Headquarters for Furniture Medic are located in Memphis, Tennessee.
