A Recession Resistant Franchise in Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater

If you are looking for a recession and even pandemic resistant franchise in Tampa, the painting and handyman industry should research. 

In just ten years, the Tampa-St. Pete area has seen tremendous growth.  It is now the 18th largest metropolitan area in the U.S!

Moreover, besides having a large population, it also has wealth.  

Pinellas County alone has  587 miles (945 km) of coastline and waterfront homes.

The opportunities for painting and handyman work are endless.  In addition, the weather allows year-round work, which is not the case in much of the U.S.

As someone who has had his painting and handyman company for 30 years,  I  admit that it is not a sexy business.   However, if you follow our systems and best practices, you should find work plentiful and profitable jobs.

Why Our Industry Makes Sense for Franchising in Tampa-St. Pete Area

In addition,  the Tampa-St. Pete gives you the flexibility to work year-round; our industry is also recession-proof.  

The painting industry is a $31 billion industry and grows by about 1-2% a year.   In addition, the handyman franchise industry is $4.1 billion per year.   Combining the two sectors makes us a convenient one-stop-shop for residential and commercial services.

Secondly, have you ever heard anyone say?

“I know so many reliable painting and handyman companies that I have a hard to choosing which one to use.”

Probably not.  Why? Because our industry is full of numbskulls –and that works in your favor.  

Prompt, professional services create a loyal customer base.

Are You Reliable?


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?

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 similar to 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.  

Questions You Need To Ask Yourself When Choosing A Franchise 

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?
