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.
