Concrete is a versatile building material used for many purposes, including paving, building columns, and more. Decorative concrete involves creating stamped and stained concrete overlays for aesthetic finishes on buildings. Concrete Craft makes these decorative concrete finishes for your commercial or domestic properties.

Concrete Craft was founded in 2006 and first went by the name All American Decorative Concrete. Two friends, John Kostro and Dan Lightner created the company in an effort to produce top-notch concrete materials and designs.

The business has since grown, and now franchises located all over the United States use the same cutting-edge technology to produce quality, decorative concrete finishes. The company is part of brands that fall under the Home Franchise Concepts (HFC) umbrella, which also includes brands such as Budget Blinds, Tailored Living, AdvantaClean, Kitchen Tune-Up, and Bath Tune-Up. It claims to be environmentally friendly and uses proprietary techniques and products to develop its decorative concrete products. 

Why You May Want to Start a Concrete Craft Franchise

Concrete Craft franchises are independently owned, allowing you the opportunity to act as your own boss. The mission of this franchise is to create leading name brands in their category with excellent customer service and quality finished products.

A franchisee should be dedicated to quality work and have an entrepreneurial spirit. Additionally, Concrete Craft prefers franchisees to be ready to get their hands dirty by actively running the business. If you are looking for a passive income investment, this would probably not be a good fit.

Concrete Craft has been ranked in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 multiple times in recent years. This ranking is based on an evaluation of more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.

What Might Make a Concrete Craft Franchise a Good Choice?

Opening a Concrete Craft franchise may be a good choice because of its passion for utilizing top-tier technology to produce its decorative concrete. More and more people are leaning towards buying proprietary brands that are environmentally friendly, which is one of the unique points of this franchise.

To be part of the Concrete Craft team, you should make sure you're financially ready for an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. In addition, you should prepare yourself for ongoing fees that will include advertising, royalty, and potential renewal fees. Franchisees will also need to meet the company's set net worth and liquid capital requirements.

How To Open a Concrete Craft Franchise

Once you have passed the preliminary background checks needed before starting a Concrete Craft franchise, you are expected to complete the mandatory training. The training may be carried out at the HFC Experience Center, which is located in Coppell, Texas. There, franchisees complete in-person training and virtual post-academy training that last for multiple hours.

Additional training schedules are required to attend at no cost to the franchisee and with reasonable notice. If you hire a manager, you may delegate them to participate in these training programs since they will act as your hands-on person in the business.

Concrete Craft will grant you a protected territory with no competition from other franchisees. A typical franchise agreement runs for ten years. Franchisees may be allowed to renew their agreement if they meet the franchisor's requirements.
