Looking for a Business Opportunity?
Are you looking for an opportunity to start, operate, and grow a profitable business? Becoming a Handyman Connection franchise owner is a great way to have the freedom to run your own business that starts with an affordable investment in a continually growing industry.
Why a Handyman Connection Franchise?
The demand for home improvement, repair and remodeling projects are at an all-time high, creating increased need for qualified, trusted companies and professionals to provide these services. Homeowners want reliable and quality service, which is a cornerstone of the Handyman Connection operating philosophy.
Homeowners are consistently faced with a variety of repair and maintenance issues throughout a home’s lifetime, offering countless opportunities for continued growth to Handyman Connection franchise owners.
Handyman Connection engages specialists skilled in a variety of trades to ensure quality customer service on every project. High repeat customer opportunity allows the building of long-term connections to truly capitalize on the lifetime value of customers.
Why a Home Improvement & Repair Franchise?
The home repair and improvement industry is massive and will be around as long as people own or are responsible for the maintenance of their homes.
Now is a great time to own a handyman franchise business as the economy and housing market is back on the rise. People are not only able to afford necessary repairs and replacements, but upgrades and additions as well.
“Spending nationwide on home improvement, which likely topped $300 billion last year, could easily exceed in 2015 the record of $324 billion set during the peak of last decade’s housing boom, the Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) of Harvard University suggests in a new report issued today.” – January 2015
“The remodeling industry’s foundation shook as the housing bubble burst, with several factors contributing to discourage consumers from spending on home improvements. During the five years to 2019, industry recovery will be driven by improvements in employment and per capita disposable income. Home prices are expected to continue rising, facilitating growth in demand for industry services because homeowners often leverage the value of their homes through loans to fund remodeling projects.” – IBIS World, January 2015
We are also experiencing a growing demographic of baby-boomers that continually look to small to medium home repairs, or larger scale improvements in their homes as they prepare for a changing lifestyle.
“We expect growth of home improvement sales averaging 6.9% in 2014-2015” – Home Improvement Research Institute (HIRI)
What Makes a Handyman Connection Franchise Different?
Leave the handiwork to your craftsmen! As a home repair and improvement business owner, your role is to drive the marketing, sales, and the people management side of the business. Through over 20 years of operation, Handyman Connection has attracted individuals from a large cross-section of industries and backgrounds. Handyman Connection is also a technological leader in the industry making innovations in customer management, project management, resource planning, marketing and mobility.
Many of our franchisees come out of middle to senior management positions in corporate America, sales professionals and business owners. We don’t expect our franchisees to have all of the skills and characteristics of successful franchisees when they come on board. However, we do look for franchisees to have the ability, energy, and work ethic to learn new skills and the personality to want to execute the skills that we support. These include the development of business plans and effectively marketing & selling Handyman Connection services in their markets.
In addition, franchisees must be able to quickly identify and close job opportunities and efficiently manage the completion of those jobs. Franchisees must possess the qualities of an entrepreneur, be willing to work long hours, and assume the personal responsibility for the success of the business. Handyman Connection franchisees thrive on being in charge of a business and must be able to staff and lead people. Franchisees also must have the financial acumen to handle the accounting duties of their company and the organizational skills to ensure that operations run smoothly.
While their backgrounds vary, there are some common and consistent traits we see in franchisees that have successfully taken on our franchise business opportunity:
