GAITHERSBURG, Md., Dec. 29 // PRNewswire // -- Just Moulding, a home improvement company founded in 2005 by Mark Rubin and Kevin Wales is now offering franchise opportunities to potential franchisees across the U.S. Recently, the company sold its first franchise, which is located in Boston, and will open in early 2009. In addition, Just Moulding moved into a new corporate office space with a state-of-the-art workshop.
"We are excited about the many things that are happening with our company in all areas. As our local business grows, our new headquarters and workshop will support the increase in business as well as being used to support our franchisees, and we are thrilled that our first franchise will be launching in the coming weeks in Boston," said Mark Rubin, CEO. The new location will house a training facility, franchise support and a centralized call center.
With fluctuations in the market for new home sales, more homeowners are choosing to invest in their current home. "Consumers are predicted to continue spending money on their homes, and our concept focuses on existing homes, which may be a little older and in need of renovations or some additional personality," explains Rubin. "Plus, the average moulding job is in a much lower price range compared to a more extensive remodeling like an addition or kitchen renovation."
Boston was selected as the first franchise location because it is a city with traditional taste in design and architecture. Boston is also a key market where homeowners are keen on adding value to their homes. Once the Boston franchise opens, Just Moulding expects to expand with more locations in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast US. "Our goal is to open 5 - 10 Just Moulding franchises in 2009," says Wales.
Just Moulding is a niche concept in the in-home service industry segment. The company offers custom design and installation of interior architectural mouldings such as crown, chair rail and wainscoting in homes and commercial facilities such as hotels and offices. The concept is based on using an effective, well-designed system to measure and install moulding. These advanced processes and techniques differentiate Just Moulding from competitors. Whatever the application, Just Moulding will add value and elegance to any room.
