There is no “best franchise”. Every franchise in Houston Texas or any area has its pros and cons. Furthermore, a franchise is like buying a pair of shoes. Different shoes for different occasions and finding the right franchise for you is much the same process.
For example, do you want a franchise in that requires full-time or part-time effort?
Do you want a home-based franchise or a storefront?
Are you comfortable with HR policies that employees come with, or do you prefer 1099’s?
Do you want seasonal work, such as a tax company or mosquito exterminator franchise or do you prefer year-round opportunities such as the painting and handyman industry?
The Pros of Owning a Klappenberger & Son Franchise:
Firstly, it is a recession-resistant industry. The industry generally increases by 1-5% every year.
Secondly, you can operate from your home saving you $100,000’s of dollars over the years of owning a business.
Thirdly, if you are looking for a scalable business, our territories are the largest by far. So large that we don’t even suggest you buy 2 territories.
Fourthly, we believe in our process so much we offer a guarantee!
Finally, our one-on-one training is six weeks long, and the final two weeks are predominantly at your location.
Here are a few reasons you might not want to buy our franchise:
Do you want to be an absentee owner? Over time as the business grows, it may make perfect sense for the owner to step back, but not initially.
Are you looking for a business that can generate passive income? Our franchise model requires you to be involved in the business.
Do consider yourself to be a people person? With rare exceptions, businesses grow best through building relationships.
Finally, are you more likely to follow a process, or do you prefer to do things your own way?
If you are looking to franchise in Houston , there are many reasons to choose a franchise that provides both painting and handyman services.
Firstly, the painting industry is a $31 billion per year industry. In addition, the handyman franchise industry is a $4.1 billion per year industry. Combining the two makes you a convenient one-stop-shop.
Secondly, people need our services regardless of the economy. For example, if home sales are slow, people are staying put and fixing up. If it is a seller market, people are buying and making changes.
You don’t need to convince someone to paint or maintain their property. Look around. Just about every structure in your territory is painted. There will be things that break down and need to be fixed or replaced.
The painting and handyman industry is so unreliable that customers will create a loyal customer base if you show up and do a good job. That is not the same for other industries such as restaurants. For example, I love a good cheeseburger. However, I’ll eat a cheeseburger from Five Guys, Wendy’s, Steak ‘n Shake, and just about any sports bar. In short, I am not loyal to just one cheeseburger joint.
On the flip side, no pun intended, the painting and handyman relationship is different. Happy customers want to use the same contractor again and again. This loyalty creates a great customer base. Over 74% of our customers are repeat customers or referrals.
Who has the best franchise? I can answer in two words -no one. Your needs, goals, and desires determine which franchise is the best for you. Not the franchise.
Buying a franchise is like buying a car. Each car has its unique features and costs. Therefore, a good franchisor should NOT try to sell you their franchise but rather asking questions about you to see if your needs fit their franchise model.
Here are a few questions we ask our candidates to determine if they are a good fit for our franchise model.
First, do you want a brick-and-mortar store or an at-home business?
Secondly, are you looking for a scalable franchise or a more part-time business?
Thirdly, are you looking for something to be hands-on or something the generates a more passive income?
What income are you looking to derive from whichever franchise purchase?
How soon do you need the cash flow from the franchise?
Have you talked to anyone in the franchise industry you are interested in?
Most importantly, how much capital do you have to invest?
