Meet Our Team: Ryan and Lance
In 2018, Ryan Conklin and Lance Larson were given the opportunity to purchase the SERVPRO of Minot franchise and took over operations in September of 2019. They added SERVPRO of Bismarck in December of 2021.
Ryan was born in Minot and graduated from Garrison High School in 1999. He attained a degree in Applied Science in 2002 from Bismarck State College. He worked for MDU from 2005-2009 where he met Lance and decided to start Absolute Comfort. In 2019, the pair bought the SERVPRO of Minot franchise and Ryan has been operating it since.
Ryan enjoys hunting and fishing, spending time with his wife, Marci, and his two kids Logan and Hailee.
Lance was born in Minot and graduated from Minot High School in 1994. He became a master plumber and started Absolute Comfort with Ryan in 2009. Lance enjoys being outdoors, golfing, and being with his three kids.
As owners of Absolute Comfort in Minot, their business model aligned with SERVPRO services and they saw an opportunity to extend their management philosophy to a new field in their industry. Their commitment of quality, honesty, and bringing peace of mind to those facing emergency home problems has now been combined with the SERVPRO brand.
Being local owners, Ryan and Lance want to contribute to the community. They do that by not only offering 24/7 service, but by giving back through youth sporting activities. This includes sponsoring programs such as:
- Minot Hockey Boosters
- Minot youth basketball
- Bishop Ryan Girls Basketball
- Minot High football, basketball volleyball, soccer, swimming, hockey and wrestling
They believe in improving the quality of life within our community and helping out whenever a homeowner has a crisis.
