Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Franchising With Klappenberger & Son

David Klappenberger answers FAQ's from candidates standing at a franchise expo

First, if you were to start your own painting company, you would need virtually the same things: a truck, tools, insurance, license, marketing materials, website, social media, estimating software, and so much more. 

Consequently, many of these items take years to properly develop, and they are done and at your effort and cost.

Secondly, doesn’t it make more sense to have a coach train you who has 30 years of success?

In short, our system is designed for you to grow faster, with fewer hats to wear, and reduce costly mistakes! 

Yes.   You will have your own website inside our website.  Leads will be automatically emailed to you!  Most importantly, you will have access to proven systems and processes.

Our goal is to make you as profitable and successful as possible.  This means giving you the best possible support.

Our process is unique in that we have training videos on best practices that customers will love.   In addition, our estimating software is accurate and makes estimating easy.

No; success is a full-time job in any business, including this one!

Absolutely! We will be happy to give you contact information at any time.

In addition, many of our franchisees will be happy to do a Zoom meeting with you as well! 

This is one of our more common FAQs.  Our territories are so big that it is really not necessary to purchase two. Consequently, with territories between 400,000 – 600,000 people, there is an opportunity to develop a significant business. 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Franchising Training

Your training takes place in the following ways:

  • 1 week in Severna Park, MD
  • 3 weeks via webinar
  • 2 weeks in your territory

Of all the FAQs, I usually answer this one during the presentation. 

We don’t think it is remotely possible to teach you everything you need to know about products, procedures, strategies, and leadership in a few short weeks.  Your success is in our best interest as well as yours. As a result, we want you as prepared and excited for success as possible.  Here is a short video of a new franchisee describing the training.

No.  None of our franchisees to date have had any prior experience.

We have over 45 training videos for you and your painters.  They show Klappenberger & Son’s best practices.  Besides,  we have outstanding estimating software and our own Price Guide Sheet that makes estimating easy and accurate. Finally, when training is done, you will have a basic understanding of the industry and best practices.  

During training, we will be meeting new clients using several different marketing methods.  Most of these methods bring in results quickly.  Therefore, it is highly probable that if you give a few estimates, you will close one.  After training, the growth of your company will depend on you. 

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) About Franchising Costs and Fees

We do not recommend getting commercial space.

Yes.  That is just one of the benefits of having your own business.  You control your destiny. 

As a result, the choice is yours whether you want to sell to a family member or anyone else.  However, it needs to go through our vetting process.   See FDD for complete details.

The franchise fee for Veterans is $40,000.  The fee for all others is $47,000.

The total start up cost is between $77,000-$116,000.
