About Us - Klappenberger & Son

Here are some facts about Klappenberger & Son and our industry that makes this an exciting franchise.

 Klappenberger & Son was founded in 1989 by David Klappenberger. Fresh out of college, I put together a small group of painters and carpenters and worked in the field with them for 17 years.  

During that time I started and ran several companies which all failed. My accountant rightfully pointed out that Klappenberger & Son was doing so well that it could finance my other projects.  Why don’t you focus on growing Klappenberger & Son.

So in 2011, I got serious about growing Klappenberger & Son.  As a result, I tripled the gross sales from $550,000 to $1.72 million in 3 years!

In 2014, I decided to franchise.  My team put together all the tools and support needed in a easy to follow process for franchising. Our franchise opportunity is designed to be the best.  We give people with no experience the tools and guidance to reach their entrepreneurial goals. 

As you do your due diligence, I hope you see all the little gems that separate us from not just the painting and handyman industry but from the entire home service franchise industry.

A Message From Our Founder About Us

David Klappenberger

I cannot claim that we are the perfect franchise…because we are not. However, if or when a mistake occurs, we correct the problem. That shows integrity.

We don’t take short cuts. That would affect the quality or durability of our work. That shows pride.

I believe in a leadership program that encourages advancement and personal development. That promotes a stronger future.

I strongly believe in and practice the Golden Rule.
