Who is Air-Scent and Why Is It An Industry Leader?
There are a myriad of companies that manufacture air fresheners and odor-control products, but few if any of them can boast a continuous work record dating back to 1946.
Air-Scent International is both a leader and pioneer within the ambient air-care industry, known far and wide for its stellar customer service reputation, superior products and masterful ambient air-care and scent-marketing solutions for commercial spaces. Pleasing our clientele is the focus of all their professional efforts.
Our specialties are diverse and they include: sustainable and cost-effective environmental and odor solutions for all commercial spaces, no matter how big or small.
As is the case with many great enterprises, we had humble beginnings. In 1946, Bob Surloff invented the world’s first fan-operated air-freshener dispenser and he gave the brand the moniker, Air-Scent.
This started a tradition of superior ambient air-care that has continued uninterrupted to this day. High-tech scent diffusion technologies developed in our 85,000 square-foot Technology Center located in suburban Pittsburgh are the most innovative and advanced within the world of industrial science.
We are one of the most prominent manufacturers and suppliers of the finest air-freshener dispensers and 30 and 60-day refills in the world today. Our ambient air-care products are sold through distributors to tens of thousands of customers via their route service operators and distributors.
There are many factors that have greatly influenced our enduring success and while there may be no written formula, there are certain aspects of running a business under the aegis of Air-Scent that bring success to its entrepreneurs and makes us shine among our competitors — Here are seven reasons to consider.
Commercial Air-Fresheners Are a Growing Industry
Without air-fresheners and odor neutralizing products, workplace environments and commercial restrooms would become noticeably smelly and unpleasant for both workers and customers, negatively affecting repeat traffic, company morale and the business owner’s all-important bottom line. According to Statista, by the year, 2024 the global fragrance market is estimated to be worth about USD $92 billion. The increasing demand for commercial air-fresheners and scent delivery systems utilizing fan air dispensers has simultaneously created significant financial growth opportunities for route service operators, current air-care suppliers and sharp, entrepreneurial minds seeking smart, home-based business opportunities.
Upfront Investment Is Minimal
There is a low cost for equipment investment, but can usually be easily reimbursed by securing an installation deposit from enough accounts to cover the initial expenditure. Additional, there’s a handsome profit out of the gate via the initial and ongoing service fees. Most entrepreneurs already have a working customer base to tap into, and once this cost is covered, high profit and quick returns on investment (ROI) are inevitable. Taking a calculated and educated risk based on a minimal investment is a very attractive lure to the hard-working entrepreneur seeking a new and different business opportunity.
Minimum Need For Inventory Storage
A fan air-freshener business under the sponsorship of Air-Scent requires very little storage. This is attributed to the proven marketability of their products and services. Although entrepreneurs rely on the reputation and name of the mother company to get their foot in the door, so to speak, it is the effort of the individual entrepreneur that allows for the building of a business based on individual merits.
Minimal Training And Labor
Due to the fact that air-freshening services are not subject to special licensing or regulations, no training is required. Labor is limited to simple installations. The average time required for a new air-freshener service is about 5 minutes and monthly servicing usually entails less than one minute per dispenser. Route representatives carry their own tools for installations. Even more, and in particular to the aspiring entrepreneur, we have a vast wealth of resources to reference here on our website and blog, which include, how to videos tutorials, a step-by-step guide to setting up an air freshener company, detailed tips to selling our products, keys to running a successful air freshener company and much more.
Air-Scent Is Women, Men and Retiree Friendly
According to Small Biz Trends, women are more likely to operate home-based businesses and 72% of women who own startups operate them out of their homes. Air-Scent is the ideal venture for men, women and retirees seeking part-time employment at home that promises a quick return on investment.
Territory Can Be Large or Small
Air-Scent service routes have expanded over the years to include both the use ofair-freshenerdispensers and refills and the sale of commercial washroom hygiene products to be used in conjunction with air-freshener services. These products are not limited for use in a single industry and include a wide variety of commercial and industrial applications. In addition, the skillful entrepreneur can further develop other territories and expand and still earn income on the original territory.
You Are Partnering With 70 years Of Experience
Above all else, for more than 7 decades, Air-Scent International has been a name connected with leadership and superior customer service. Harnessing your dreams to such an established enterprise minimizes the risk of failure that is always present to some degree in any entrepreneurial endeavor.
The benefits of working at home and making your own hours without needing to “dress for the office” and commute are attractive lures to any hard-working entrepreneur. In addition, representing a well-established and respected company such as ours is about as risk free as any home business can expect to be. There is also that vital intangible spillover of knowledge and experience from a master provider that transfers learning how to fulfill client needs to the home business operator.
An Air-Scent distributor can make a lucrative living backed by a prestigious company with a stellar reputation. The superior products end up speaking for themselves, as once tried, they are always requested. Repeat business lies at the foundation of any successful home business and consistent effort and energy is required to maintain the demands of any client base. That being said, below are some figures, which of course will vary from distributor to distributor.
Usually, the standard amount of Air-Scent units supplied to an average-sized area or territory within a year’s time total 1,250, which in turn could clear an estimated $102,537 per annual profit per route for a distributor. In larger urban areas, a solid work ethic and a dedicated entrepreneur with established routes can potentially earn much more.
So what are you waiting for? Truth lies within the fact that if you don’t find the courage to follow your dreams, who will follow them for you?
