The Rytech Brand

Recessions or pandemics have little impact on restoration services because the work is vital to the security of property and people’s health and well-being. When there is property damage and loss, people need a reliable company to handle the work professionally, accurately, safely, quickly, and with empathy.  Rytech Restoration is the company to call. Our franchising options allow you to be part of a service provider who genuinely cares and helps their customers in times of emergency. Watch our emergency response video to see how Team Rytech responds.

Our Story

William “Bubba” Ryan started Rytech in the early 1990s based on over 30 years’ worth of experience in the restoration industry.

The company was founded on the understanding that there was a better way of doing things, so he made significant changes to the service process and created new technology to help clients. In addition, Mr. Ryan developed a business model that allows for owner-empowered hands-on franchising. The result is Rytech, a revolutionary and industry-leading water damage and mold removal service provider that is part of a 60 billion-dollar-plus industry.
We are revolutionary, and we don't make that statement lightly. Many franchises run and operate similarly to each other, following a preexisting formula. The founding of Rytech incorporates the understanding that the business must benefit the customer and meet their needs first. That concept of better service, better technology, better processes, and better corporate support ensures that we have a better business and franchise model.

Establishing our guiding principles on the knowledge that revolutionary is the only way forward enables Rytech to remain an industry-leading producer of technology and service methods.

Our Past Created Our Future

Mr. Ryan identified a service gap for property owners and insurers along with improved remediation and mitigation offerings. We continue to dominate our field with a seamless and smooth work-acquisition process for insurers, partnered with our high-touch, effective and practical mitigation services. From its humble beginnings in one location, the company has reached exponential growth and currently provides service to 99 major markets across 25 states.
