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 Meet The Team 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.

You Have What it Takes

The Benefits of Business Ownership

Handyman Connection franchise ownership empowers you to take control of your future and invest in yourself. The majority of our franchisees have no experience in the home improvement and repair industry. Instead, they have spent most of their careers in middle management and large corporations. Once you have done enough work making other businesses succeed, it’s time to shift the focus to you. Handyman Connection franchising marketing strategies are designed to provide you with several ways to grow and manage your business. We provide you with franchise training and marketing concepts to recruit contractors to your team.

Additionally, you receive franchise marketing support to uncover and develop job leads. We present you with the opportunity to make something your own, where you create your success and can secure your financial future. You can be a successful Handyman Connection franchisee at the helm of your thriving business.

Create Your Future

Handyman Connection is proud of the business opportunities we have created through franchise ownership. If you are searching for a better way to make a living that is rewarding, engaging, and fuels your passion, partner with us. Your future is worth the investment.
