Mr. Handyman Franchise Signs Eight Agreements for New Franchises in First Quarter of 2010

Demand for Home Repair Services Drives Growth of Booming Handyman Segment

April 16, 2010 // Franchising.com // Ann Arbor, MI – Mr. Handyman, a full-service home repair and maintenance company and the No. 1 employer of handymen nationwide, announced it has signed eight new franchise agreements in the First Quarter of 2010.

"The need for home repair companies like Mr. Handyman is growing at a rapid pace," said Todd Recknagel, president of Mr. Handyman franchise. "We're filling an important demand for reliable home repair and improvement services, which is why we carefully select our franchise owners to ensure they meet our criteria, especially a passion for delivering the highest customer service. These new owners demonstrated throughout our selection process that they will represent the Mr. Handyman brand well in their respective markets."

The franchise agreements include the following new owners:

  • Paul and Susan Girad, Minneapolis, MN
  • Lee and Jennifer Allen, Baltimore, MD
  • Grant Colton, Pittsburgh, PA
  • Gary Smith, Pasadena, CA
  • Wayne Daffer, Kansas City, MO
  • Don and Jane Kummick, Indianapolis, IN
  • Gary Voss, McHenry, IL
  • Jeff and Ryan Tews, Madison, WI

"All of these new franchise owners are excited to be affiliated with our trusted brand name," Recknagel added. "They're thrilled to be operating their own business, while also being backed with top-notch training and ongoing marketing support from our home office. It's the best of both worlds."

The Mr. Handyman franchise opportunity provides financial rewards and a family-friendly lifestyle. Franchisees do not have to be "handy," – rather they recruit, train, and motivate good handyman employees, so the technicians can do the work while franchise owners manage their business.

According to the U. S. Census Bureau, six out of 10 homeowners have home improvement to-dos, and tending to these nagging repairs while balancing work and family has created a thriving demand for professional, safe and reliable home-repair services. The average cost to open a Mr. Handyman franchise is approximately $120,000 with a franchise fee of $19,900.
