FAQs About Franchising

Below is a list of the most common FAQs about franchising with Klappenberger & Son.  In addition, to the most common ones, I added a few that I thought should be asked but typically are not.

David Klappenberger answers FAQ's from candidates standing at a franchise expoFirst, if you were to start your own painting company, you would need virtually the same things: Truck, tools, insurance, license, and marketing material, 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!

Why don’t I start my own painting company rather than buy a franchise?

Of all the FAQs, this is my favorite.

FAQs of Training: Where does the training take place?

  • 1 week in Severna Park MD
  • 3 weeks Webinar
  • 2 weeks in your territory

 

 

FAQs: Why is your training 6 weeks long and everyone else’s is 2-4 weeks?

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. We want you as prepared and excited for success as possible.  Here is a short video of a new franchisee describing the training.


 

FAQs: Is painting or handyman experience necessary?

 

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

We have over 45 training videos for you and your painters that 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.  


 

FAQs: How soon can I expect to have steady work?

 

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. 


 

 

FAQs:  Do I need commercial space?

We do not recommend getting commercial space.


 

 

What separates Klappenberger & Son from other painting and handyman franchises?

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

Our process is unique in that we have training videos on best practices that customers will love.   Not to mention that our estimating software is accurate and makes estimating easy.


 

 

Can I do this part-time?

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


 

 

Can I sell the franchise at some point?

Yes.  That is just one of the benefits of having your own business.  You control your destiny.  The choice is yours whether you want to sell to a family member or anyone else.  It just needs to go through our vetting process.   See FDD for complete details.

 

FAQs: Is it possible to speak to some of the Klappenberger & Son Franchisees?

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! 


 

 

 

Can I buy two territories?

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.

An offer is made only by a Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).

The required FDD (if any) has been delivered to the prospective franchisee before the sale in compliance with applicable law.

Currently, certain states regulate the offer and sale of franchises. In the U.S., states that regulate the offer and sale of franchises include California, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. Therefore, if you reside in one of these states, or even if you reside elsewhere, you may have certain rights under applicable franchise laws or regulations.
