Franchisee Roles & Responsibilities

As the owner of a Handyman Connection franchise, you will be expected to be actively involved in the operation of your business. You will not be performing handyman work yourself; you will engage local craftsmen to complete the work for your customers. Your primary areas of responsibility in this franchise business opportunity include:

Market and Advertise Handyman Services in Your Community
You will be responsible for building your client base through local marketing efforts. Of course, we will provide assistance in this area through our marketing programs.

Recruit, Hire and Retain Craftsmen
You will be responsible for identifying and engaging reliable and skilled craftsmen to complete all home repair and improvement projects. We will assist you in how to identify, recruit and retain these important members of your team.

Customer Engagement and Service
You will be responsible initially for all client acquisition and sales but over time will likely transition to hiring a Service Advisor who will be the primary point person for new business development. You will continue to provide post-service customer relations to ensure the work was done to the satisfaction of the customer and to help generate referrals.

Financial Management
You will be responsible for managing the finances of the business including budgeting, but we will help you with this important area.

Job Scheduling and Coordination
As with the customer engagement role, you will initially be responsible for managing all schedules and jobs, but over time, hire a Service Advisor or a Customer Service Representative to handle the bulk of this activity.

Why Franchising

“We started to say let’s look at the franchise because I really didn’t want to start something from scratch.”

Financial Considerations

As with any franchise business investment, there are certain criteria we look for to be considered for a Handyman Connection franchise. Below are the basic financial requirements we like to see in a successful candidate:

  • Liquid Assets: $75K+ available to invest in the business. These funds can be from savings, stock/brokerage portfolios and even qualified retirement plans.
  • Net Worth: $250K+ in personal net worth is important, particularly if a candidate is planning on securing any funding for business start-up expenses.

Franchisee Investment Information

The Handyman Connection franchise fee is $60,000 but there are several additional factors to consider which will add to that depending on how much marketing you plan on doing, what resources you have (office, computers, etc.) and the size of business you plan to pursue.

We estimate that the total investment to start your Handyman Connection franchise business ranges from $99,860 to $155,980, which includes the initial franchise fee, software fee, working capital, initial marketing funds and other start up expenses to open the business. The Franchisee pays an ongoing 5% monthly royalty on their Gross Sales. The Handyman Connection franchise costs are laid out in our franchise disclosure document (FDD).

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.
