A Recession Resistant Franchise in Raleigh NC

Granted, a painting and handyman franchise in Raleigh might not be the sexiest choice.  However, it does check some pretty important boxes such as:

  • Affordable franchise
  • Scalable franchise
  • Home-based franchise

Technology, Bio-tech, and Universities make Raleigh an amazing place to have a profitable Klappenberger & Son painting and handyman franchise.  

Furthermore, the disposable income that these industries provide makes our industry a recession-resistant industry.  

Think about it but try not to get too excited.  The amount of painting from just one of these colleges can potentially provide huge returns year after year.

And besides higher education, there is the Triangle.   These technology and bio-tech careers provide well-paying jobs and disposable income.

How do you want to grow a Klappenberger & Son franchise in Raleigh? Whether you choose commercial, residential, or local government or all three, there is opportunity everywhere.

What are the best franchises to own?
In the past I have started my own businesses. This company has so many of the necessary pieces in place it made it a "best franchise" choice for me.

We Both Want Us to Be a Good Fit

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?

A Franchise Guarantee

With 4,000 franchises to choose from in the US, how many put their money where their mouth is and have a guarantee?  

A real guarantee –not a gimmick. 

We realize that it takes a leap of faith to buy a franchise.  To own a franchise means quitting your job and investing your life savings. That is a huge commitment and I recognize that by giving you a franchise fee guarantee.

Why Our Industry Makes Sense for Franchising in Raleigh NC

If you are looking for a low-cost franchise with high profit in Raleigh, there are many reasons to look at our industry.   

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 for customers and a generous stream of income for you. 

Secondly, people need our services regardless of the economy. For example, if home sales are slow, people are making repairs and painting.   If it is a seller market, people are buying and making changes to make the sale. 

I have been in this industry for 30 years and have seen every type of economy, including the pandemic. So I can speak from experience; this industry is recession-resistant.

Dependability + Professionalism = Repeat Customers and Referrals

The painting and handyman industry is so unreliable that you will create a customer base by just showing up and doing a good job.   That is not the same for most 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.  They have a relationship, and they trust you.  This industry can create a great customer base.  Over 74% of our customers are repeat customers or referrals.

Who Has the Best Franchise?

Who has the best franchise?   I can answer in two words -no one

I strongly believe that Klappenberger & Son has the best franchise in the painting and handyman industry.  However, your needs, goals, and desires determine which franchise is the best for you.  

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 to determine which type of a franchise you should search for:

  • 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?
  • Finally, 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?

Before you buy a franchise, evaluate and compare FDD's. Many franchises have hidden costs that make them a not so affordable franchise opportunity.
