Franchise Award Process
Finding the right franchise means finding a business that matches up with your personality and preferences for the long-term. We encourage our candidates to do their due diligence on the home improvement industry and learn about us by working with our Franchise Developers, talking to franchisees and our Home Office team. As we move along in the discovery process, we will ask you to complete an Application, a personality profile assessment and a background check.
After both parties have been able to assess a fit, we look forward to meeting our candidates in person at our Discovery Day where you’ll have the opportunity to meet one on one with the Executive team and determine if Handyman Connection is the place for you.
