In 1935, in the midst of the Great Depression, an enterprising young man named Francis Von Schrader dreamed of helping people find ways to help themselves.
Despite the economic depression, he left his position with a nationally known company in the electric appliance field and started the Von Schrader Company with nothing but a goal and a shoestring budget of less than $5,000.
What Fran wanted to sell was not merely carpet cleaning equipment but an opportunity. He believed that if given a chance, industrious individuals could develop and build prosperous, independent businesses. He was right.
Over the last 70 years, more than 50,000 people have become Von Schrader “Associates."
(Associates are people running their own companies using of Von Schrader equipment and programs.) Through the success of our Associates, Von Schrader built its own quality reputation.
Today, more than ever, you can find success with proven Von Schrader systems.
