As we know, the home improvement industry is hotter than ever and there are a wide range of franchises that focus on those people that don’t care to go the DIY (do it yourself) route. Many people either don’t have the time, the skills, or the patience to complete home improvements themselves. They are seeking professional results and don’t mind paying for them.
Here are some of the attributes of home improvement franchises:
Low investment– The investment range for home improvement franchises run roughly from $75,000 to $250,000, much lower than many service franchises. The lower investment makes it easy for people to get started with a wide variety of funding options to include an SBA Express Loan.
High margin– Unlike many independent business owners, franchising offers the ability to leverage national buying power with deep discounts that enable you to maintain competitive pricing while maintaining higher margins.
Low overhead– Most franchises allow you to start as a home-based business and grow into a small industrial warehouse space. In addition, the employee requirements are small and many of the services can be sub-contracted until you build up enough volume to justify employees.
No experience necessary– More than 75% of people that start home improvement service franchises have no experience. What they typically need is strong communication, leadership, management, and sales skills. Franchisors have elaborate training programs that quickly turn you from a novice into a professional.
Business hours– Why work nights and weekends? These franchises typically require you to work regular business hours.
Quick startup– In contrast to brick and mortar franchises, most home improvement franchises are home-based or operated out of a small industrial space. No waiting on real estate selection and timely (and costly) interior renovations.
Buying power– Gain the competitive advantage over local independents with deep discounts, negotiated pricing, and national supply contracts.
National brand– Let’s face it, people trust national brands and franchise owner’s see a higher degree of ROI on their marketing due to this fact.
National call centers– If you’re not able to answer new customer calls you are likely to lose them to your competitors. National call centers enable you to maximize your productivity and not have to worry if you’re too busy to answer the phone.
