Here’s what you need to know if you’re interested in opening a Handyman Pro franchise.

Handyman Pro was founded in 2018 by Gerald Thompson in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was not long after that the company came under the direction of parent company Premium Service Brands and began franchising.

Handyman Pro helps customers in the areas of home repair and remodeling. Franchisees help customers in the areas of carpentry, electrical, gutters, siding, windows, doors, plumbing, construction cleanup, furniture assembly, and more.

Since beginning to franchise, Handyman Pro has opened several locations throughout the United States and Canada. It is actively seeking to add franchisees located in both the United States and Canada to its team.

Why You May Want To Start a Handyman Pro Franchise

As Handyman Pro expands throughout the United States and Canada, the brand is looking for franchisees passionate about helping people. Handyman Pro prefers that candidates have some experience in home repair and/or the remodeling industry.

Handyman Pro franchisees need to have good leadership skills, as they will manage a team of employees. Franchisees may also need to have excellent time management and communication skills. Customer satisfaction may greatly impact how well a Handyman Pro franchise does, so having customer service experience may be a benefit.

As a franchisee for Handyman Pro, you are not expected to field calls, answer emails, and care for a website on your own. The company maintains an in-house customer care center that may do all of that for you. The customer care center also schedules appointments to your online calendar. This added service may allow you to fully focus on each day’s job.

What Might Make a Handyman Pro Franchise a Good Choice?

To keep improving your location and brand, franchisees have the opportunity to attend Handyman Pro’s national convention each year. This convention gives franchisees the chance to collaborate with industry experts and other Handyman Pro franchisees.

To be part of the Handyman Pro 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 Handyman Pro Franchise

As you decide if opening a Handyman Pro franchise is the right move for you, make sure you take time to explore the opportunity. Research the brand and your local area to see if a Handyman Pro franchise would do well in your community. While competition is healthy, too much of it may not allow for the most possible growth.

Before making any financial commitment or signing an agreement with Handyman Pro, you must perform your due diligence and establish if this is the right opportunity for you. As part of your due diligence, you may want to speak to existing franchisees and ask the Handyman Pro franchising team questions.

If awarded a Handyman Pro franchise, franchisees receive a great deal of support from the Handyman Pro brand throughout the franchising process. In addition to pre-opening training, Handyman Pro franchisees receive support through brand awareness, marketing, research, and construction. Handyman Pro franchisees may also receive hands-on training and continued support after their franchise location has opened.
