Handyman Franchises

A handyman franchise business is a great opportunity for someone with home repair skills. More and more Americans are too busy to engage in doing their own home repairs. In addition, many lack the confidence or skills for minor maintenance projects, leading them to seek out a professional. Experts in the home improvement, maintenance and repair arena say spending has increased in this area and should continue to increase for at least the next year, making a handyman franchise an excellent business to explore for the right entrepreneur.

Types of Handyman Franchises

When it comes to types of handyman franchises, there are basically two categories: a do-it-all franchise and a niche franchise. The do-it-all handy man franchise is one who offers a range of services from simple fixes, such as repairing a leaky faucet, to more complex remodeling projects. A niche handy man franchise focuses on specific areas of home repair and maintenance, whether that is plumbing, electrical work or painting. Whichever option you select will depend on your skill set and the needs of consumers in your area.
