Of course, you want a large territory all to yourself; unfortunately, many franchisors divide cities such as Montgomery into two. If you want the entire Montgomery Metro area to yourself, Klappenberger & Son is your best choice.
According to Wikipedia, Montogomery is ranked the 142 largest City in the US. The seven county metro area.
The Montgomery Metro Area is very affordable. The cost of living is 16.9% lower than the U.S. average. This affordability gives additional discretionary spending.
If you are looking to franchise in the Montgomery Metro area, you will probably want a business that is scalable and recession resistant. Lets take a look at the industry first.
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. And there will be things that break down and must 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?
