Ductz is launching Hoodz International L.L.C. with about 75 current Ductz franchisees. That number and geographic reach should make Hoodz the largest national commercial hood franchise in the U.S. by the end of the year, said Rotche, who is president of Ductz. HOODZ is proud to emerge as the first national brand backed by leading service industry providers. Poised for aggressive growth, the HOODZ franchise opportunity will provide business owners with the proven system, brand equity, training and support that no one else is offering. In consistently keeping commercial kitchens compliant with NFPA Standards, HOODZ solidifies its position as a viable, and essential concept with unlimited expansion opportunities.
