Why choose a klappenberger & Son franchise was the first question I asked before even thinking about franchising.
The franchise fee guarantee shows that we trust our system and processes. We believe that regardless of where you live or previous painting and repair experiences, you will have success in our system. If not, we will give you back your franchise fee in full!
Are we crazy? No, we have 29 years of running a painting and repair person business, and we have learned what to do and what not to do in any market.
“I had no prior experience in the painting or handyman industry.” -Daniel Tucker
To offer a guarantee, we must make our system easy to learn and have substantial opportunities for growth. Therefore, we created territories 2-4 larger than our competitors. Our typical territory size is 600,000 people. Our competitors are typically 200,000.
We believe if a franchisee is to prosper, they need a large enough territory to build a significant business.
Training – we offer one on one training that is five weeks long. The last week of training is at your location. Our competitor’s training programs are typically two weeks of training at their corporate location. Can you teach me how to do your job successfully in two weeks?
First of all, we help our franchisees out in the following ways during the training:
We are not aware of any other home service franchise that does this.
Truth be told, this can’t be done in two weeks.
Finally, we teach our franchisees how to close the sale without being the cheapest guy in town. It’s one thing to give estimates to prospects; that’s first base. However, if you can’t turn those estimates into jobs, that’s a lot of time and money wasted.
As a result, the close rates on job estimates by Klappenberger franchisees are almost double the national average! Furthermore, we are not the cheapest guys in town! We don’t want you to compete on price. Therefore, it is always about the quality of the service.
Ongoing support – being able to call “someone” and ask them questions is good. Contacting the franchise owner who has seen it all is like having a golf pro as a caddy.
Here is a brief list of the ongoing support you get when you join our franchise family:
When you have these tools, you can run the business instead of the business running you. If having your own business is a desire that won’t let go, give us a call, and let’s chat.
Certainly, for any business to succeed, you, as the owner must continually be focused on its success. Throughout the training process, we will spend time exploring and developing your goals and the best way to achieve them.
Upon completion of the initial training, you will not only possess the knowledge required to professionally and efficiently perform all necessary tasks, but you will also be able to speak with confidence about all phases of our painting and related services. Though we will not teach you how to paint, you will know the proper techniques and how to identify and keep the best painters. Thus, you will have everything that you need to succeed.
We will also show you how to find and interview skilled painters and carpenters. Finding excellent help is always a challenge. I will show you our system for identifying potential risks and quickly spotting poor and unproductive painters.
With over 32 years of experience, we will help you grow and market your business. You will meet and exceed your goals using our processes. Whether you prefer to specialize in the areas of commercial, residential, property management, government, or some mix, we have proven marketing strategies to ensure your success.
Included in our training:
My goal is to have the most satisfied and successful franchises in our industry. My commitment is to provide the tools, mentoring, and support they need to achieve that goal. Because of this, we have a support staff that has been in the industry for decades and knows the obstacles and challenges that franchisees face.
With a commitment from the franchisee to follow the system and work the business, I know we can do great things together.
Klappenberger & Son is the only painting company that has training videos for everyone. Whether you are an owner, estimator, or painter, everyone is following the same process. When a customer asks about the time, process, and products we will all be singing from the same hymn book.
If you are all about quality work and exceeding customer expectations, and are genuinely interested in discussing the possibility of building your very own business, look no further.
Today, there are a lot of franchises for veterans in the marketplace. And yes, Klappenberger & Son is one of those franchise opportunities. However, the training you have received in the military can give you an upper hand in whatever franchise you choose.
I believe a veteran-run franchise makes perfect sense.
Why? Because discipline, willingness to follow a process, and leadership development are the necessary tools to be a successful franchisee.
Klappenberger & Son is a recession-resistant painting and handyman franchise. Forming the company in 1989, David Klappenberger launched his first franchise in 2015. We created our franchise for veterans in mind. Accurate, time tested procedures (30 years) and step by step instructions.
Having the founder teach you the systems and processes to have your successful franchise is a real benefit. David Klappenberger built his business to be one of the largest in Maryland. His crews worked at
the Pentagon, Smithsonian, and even the White House. Having one on one training from someone who has done the work for decades is a real advantage.
Prior painting or home improvement experience will be considered a plus. We even offer a compelling program option for existing painting businesses. However, previous industry experience is not a necessity.
Of course, you should love working with people and pleasing customers! Additionally, you will need to meet all licensing and certification requirements in the area in which you operate.
However, don’t worry, we can help you identify those requirements. We are looking for winners to join us, and help us take Klappenberger & Son to the next level.
