The remodeling and home improvement industry benefits enormously from dozens of great brands and business opportunities that are available to industry entrepreneurs. For at least 20 years, Qualified Remodeler has compiled a list of these opportunities. Most of them are printed here, but the list gets posted online at QualifiedRemodeler.com where periodic updates are made. If you are in the market for a new home improvement opportunity, you will want to find it under Lists and bookmark it for future reference.
Being a home improvement entrepreneur is more complicated and riskier than many people realize. Though there are costs of acquiring a franchise or territory, there are many benefits. Here are our Top 10 you might want to keep in mind as you look for your next business opportunity. These are not presented in any particular order.
The marketing is complete or nearly complete
As most home improvement entrepreneurs understand, lead-generation is a cornerstone of any sales and marketing driven business. Buying a franchise or taking on a dealership should give you a solid marketing platform on which to stand beginning Day One. Marketing today and lead-generation today are more complicated than they have ever been. There are hundreds of strategies and tactics to consider if you are starting from scratch. When you sign on with a company, you should have access to a ready-made program that will give you a track to run on—complete with creative assets that you can use and deploy.
This is truer with franchises than with dealerships, but the same principles apply to both. The Federal Trade Commission requires franchisors to provide a ream of important information including the company’s history, information about the officers, litigation history, audited financial statements, the franchise agreement, and a current list of franchises with owners’ names and contact information. This information must be read carefully by you and your attorney beforeyou commit. And based on this due diligence you must be prepared to walk away if the information does not fit your risk tolerance or other tolerances. This kind of regulated transparency is a great benefit of buying a franchise.
You will join a team
Very few entrepreneurs succeed without the advice and input of peers. Most home improvement franchises come with a ready-made community of like-minded peers. Window World is known for its annual family meeting. Penntek’s annual gatherings are spirited and energetic. Same with the group at Paul Davis Restoration. These gatherings plus other virtual meetings for training and other updates, which happen on a more frequent basis are invaluable assets to a new franchisor or dealer. Relationships are formed. New ideas are exchanged, and solutions to problems are solved. Likewise, there are many ways to be a good team player and to benefit from those coming in behind you.
Better chance of resale
The topic of how to exit the remodeling and home improvement industry is always top-of-mind with owners in their 50s, 60s and 70s. This industry is inherently local. There is often not enough brand equity or value to drive resale. The same goes for the systems and processes that undergird most successful home improvement firms. They must be repeatable with good reporting. Franchise owners often benefit from strong regional and national brands. They also have repeatable systems. The last piece of the puzzle is consistent profits. If you put all of those together, you have a saleable asset. Without them selling is much more difficult.
Franchises have a proven track to run on from day one. Often there are many examples of proven success among previous franchise or dealer owners in a given network. These successful operations come with benchmarks that help keep you on track as you embark on a new entrepreneurial journey. This should give the buyer confidence to proceed. There is the knowledge of what success looks like and a clear range for return on investment or ROI as you grow.
A big advantage of buying a franchise or dealership is the acquisition of a strong brand, one that has significant value and trust in the eyes of your potential client targets. Many franchises come with names and brands that have significant equity, which in addition to strong marketing systems and processes, give entrepreneurs a significant leg up when it comes to driving leads for new business. In many cases the website for the national brand will help drive leads to your specific business. You will want to ask about their lead-generation efforts on behalf of franchisees and dealers.
Risk avoidance, better odds
Good franchises and dealerships will have eliminated many of the quantifiable risks of starting a new business. With a solid track record comes good information about how to overcome common obstacles. They come with good contracts with up-to-date terms. And they come with a network of peers on which you can go to for solutions.
Systems and processes
For many home improvement entrepreneurs this is likely to be the greatest benefit of all. Successful organizations have robust systems and processes that you can utilize on Day One. These effectively eliminate painful lessons learned from months or years of trial-and-error. A good entrepreneur will come to any potential opportunity with a knowledge of how to manage a profit and loss statement. They will know pricing. They will know markup and margin. Finally, they will come knowing how to earn net profit. But many entrepreneurs acquire important details of these factors through the systems and processes available through the franchise or dealer network.
More time to focus ON the business
A proven track for marketing, solid systems and processes, an employee manual, a good brand: all of these assets are what you should seek in a new franchise or dealership. The reason is clear. Developing any of these items on your own are very time consuming. When you acquire them and possess them on Day One, you are freed up to run fast and run hard to get your business up and running. It is a mantra among small business owners in most places that they must not get bogged down in the performance of one or two of the key job functions in the business. Successful entrepreneurs have lifted themselves out of the grind so they are free to work on their businesses instead of in them.
Good way to diversify
Buy owning a business, equity can be built while avoiding capital gains taxes until such time as a business is sold. Owning a franchise that is saleable gives you the opportunity to grow your wealth aside from other investments. These other investments can be another home improvement firm, one that you’ve run successfully for year. But that one may not have the same upside on the backend. That is why you will see many successful home improvement entrepreneurs owning different businesses within the broader home improvement space. It’s a good way to diversify. QR
