Traction Capital Partners, an investment firm focused on helping entrepreneurs in the western U.S., has made a growth investment in Restoration 1, a franchise focused on emergency mitigations, restoration and reconstruction services.

Scott Whitaker, owner of Restoration 1, opened the first franchise in 2017. The company has expanded into additional territories in central Washington and has expanded to 313 locations open and in development across the U.S. With this investment, Whitaker’s franchises aim to provide more support across multiple communities.

“Whitaker has developed a great team, and we look forward to working in the background to help provide the resources and systems necessary to continue to grow the business into multiple states,” comments Justin Turner, managing partner at Traction Capital.
