The STOP Story

Mack ClarkSTOP evolved of Mack Clark’s intimate consulting relationship with the restoration industry. It is estimated that a BILLION DOLLARS in restoration work has been accomplished under Mack’s companies’ marketing and management systems and guidance.

In 1971, Mack left a promising career in big industry with Honeywell & Rohr /Goodrich Aerospace, where he learned marketing and systems planning. He set out to bring the tools he learned in corporate America, to small business owners. By the early 1980’s, he had secured a place in the restoration and construction industries as the industry’s most popular speaker and business consultant.

By 1996, it was obvious that the growing list of restoration clients, all operating with the same direction and systems, was nothing shy of a franchise without territories and branding. Adding these elements and nationally recognized technical consultants to the team made the transition from a consulting company to the franchise brand Service Team Of Professionals (STOP) was complete.

Today, the franchise system is strong and growing, with new Franchisees buying up territories throughout North America. STOP franchisees have helped an estimated 167,000 home and business owners recover from a range of water, fire, indoor environmental issues and disasters since the beginning.

The STOP franchise system is primed to grow significantly in the coming years and we are humbled and proud of the successes we have helped create throughout our family of STOP Franchise owners.
