A Recession Resistant Franchise in Virginia Beach

Are you looking for a franchise in the greater Hampton Roads area (Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Newport News, Suffolk, Williamsburg)?  Then this is the land of opportunity. 

It has been a destination for aspiring entrepreneurs as far back as the mid-1600s where English settlers came to make their fortunes. 

Today Virginia Beach is the most populous city in Virginia and home to miles of beaches and oceanfront businesses. 

Whether it’s historic landmarks like Williamsburg and Jamestown that are attractive vacation destinations for tourists, the large central business district, the military bases, or the colleges and universities and growing population, this area has it all. 

Virginia Beach was ranked at number 45 on Forbes’s list of best places for business and careers.  The amount of work available for painting and handyman services here is almost unlimited.

What are the best franchises to own?

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 you 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?

Why Our Industry Makes Sense for Franchising in Virginia Beach and Surrounding Areas

If you are looking to franchise in Virginia Beach, 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.

Dependability + Professionalism = Repeat Customers and Referrals

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 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 you can yourself to finding the best 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?
