A Franchise With A Guarantee? Now That A New Idea


A franchise with a guarantee? Yes!

According to Frankart Global, there are about 3,000 franchises to choose from in the U.S., and only one comes with a guarantee!

Franchises range from part-time at-home-based businesses for ~ 10k  to Marriott International for 138,000,000. 

Franchisors Know That Their Franchisees Can Fail

Just like the driving instructor can teach a student how to drive but can’t guarantee that you won’t crash or worse.

My franchise concept is different because I know that anyone can achieve success if they commit to following the system.  

I’ll teach you and put all the systems in processes in place, and if you follow the process, I feel comfortable guaranteeing you that you will gross $500,000 in your first 20 months, or I will reimburse your franchise fee in full.

Why am I so confident?  Because I have been in the industry for 3 decades.  I’ve had the privilege of teaching people with no experience, and the only ones who fail are the ones who choose to do things their way.  The road to success is laid out for anyone who wishes to drive it.

What Do We Do Differently To Offer A Franchise With A Guarantee

It’s not one big thing but rather a collection of little things that allow us to offer a franchise with a guarantee.  


Here are some bullet points:

  • Most painting franchises don’t offer handyman or remodeling services.  We do.
  • Most handyman franchises offer no or minor painting services. 
  • Because we do both, we are more of a one-stop shop for residential and commercial services.
  • Our industry is recession-resistant.
  • Low start-up costs range from 78k – 116k, which includes the franchise fee and the first three months’ expenses.
  • A home-based business allows you to keep costs down and deduct office space for taxes.



Why Would a Franchise Painting Company Offer a Guarantee?

It’s who we are.  Klappenberger & Son began as an independent painting company in 1989.

Klappenberger-and-son-white-house Places we have worked include:

  • White House
  • Pentagon
  • Smithsonian
  • and about 25,000 customers’ homes    

After becoming one of the larger painting companies in Maryland, we chose to franchise in 2015.  Because we gave our customers warranties and guarantees, we decided to do the same for the painting franchises.


A Leap of Faith into Owning a Franchise

Klappenberger & Son realizes that buying any franchise takes a leap of faith on your part.

So, we decided to shorten the leap – if you will. 


The Klappenberger & Son guarantee states:  if, after following our proven process, you fail to gross $500,000 in your first 20 months, we will reimburse your franchise fee in full.  You can sleep peacefully knowing that the franchise fee is guaranteed (if you follow our proven marketing strategy).

A Franchise With A Guarantee Must Grow Quickly

Klappenberger & Son uses a two-prong approach to growing the franchise.  You have to have visibility on the internet both organically and through advertisement. 

Our digital marketing approach includes all the latest and greatest: 

  • Organic listings (long term development)
  • Google Maps (short-term)
  • Google AdWords (short-term)
  • Multiple Social Media Marketing Tactics

As a Klappenberger & Son franchise, these processes are already in place and waiting for you.


What Are the Guarantee Requirements?

Klappenberger & Son believes a painting franchise is best grown through building relationships with the right businesses.   

Lauren_phone Great businesses to build long term relationships with include:

  • Property Managers
  • Schools / Colleges
  • Hospitals
  • Assisted Living facilities
  • Realtors

Building these relationships is a great way to build a profitable franchise painting company.  And when it is time to sell the painting franchise, it will have value and improved marketability.

To honor the guarantee, Klappenberger & Son asks its franchisees to meet five new people monthly in the above industries. 

Our Franchise Secret

Klappenberger & Son knows that this simple (yet often avoided) system works.  It is an inexpensive and time-efficient way to grow a franchise painting company. 


FAQ About A Franchise With A Guarantee

Q. If I follow the process, what results can I expect?  

A. When providing professional painting and handyman services to businesses in a timely matter, franchisees create ongoing relationships that generate tens of thousands of dollars in annual revenue.   One relationship might generate $9,000 per year and another $90,000. Neither one is uncommon.  

Q. Can I meet with five property managers at one Property Management company?

Yes, as long as they each have properties that need painting or handyman services. 

Q. How do I demonstrate that I meet with five new people each month?

We have a monthly form you fill out and send back to us at the beginning of each month.  It’s that easy.

Q. After the initial meeting, is there anything else I need to do? 

Yes, you will enter them into our CRM system and stay in touch through periodic emails and phone calls.

Q. Can I do 15 meetings in one month and then skip a month or two?

No, the entire point of this guarantee is to develop great habits, including time management and sales.  Like exercising, once a prolonged break occurs, it is difficult to get back in rhythm.  

Q. Does a virtual meeting count as a meeting? 

Yes, you will have better success if you meet face to face, but we understand that is not always practical. 

Q. Has anyone ever followed through with the challenge and failed?

No. We have not had to reimburse anyone their franchise fee.
