June 14, 2012 // Franchising.com // LONG ISLAND, NY - Knock, knock. Who’s there? Door. Door who? Doorologist who is opening new doors to franchisees.
After a decade of proving that the business model is highly profitable, Doorologist, the one stop shop for all your door and specialty hardware installations and repair needs, is now franchising and awarding franchises in Metro New York, Long Island, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts.
Franchisees will reap the rewards of repairing, installing or implementing any commercial door solution. There is an unmet need for experts to repair and maintain entrances and exits in office buildings, retail stores, medical facilities, hotels, schools etc. Services provided to: Jacob Javits Center, Carnegie Hall, Kohl’s, TD Bank, Enterprise Rent a Car, Burger King, Hospital for Special Surgery and many more.
John Nelson, a former union carpenter, originally founded Doorologist in an attempt to work a couple of days to supplement his early retirement. "I didn't expect to be swamped with the demand for commercial door and hardware solutions," noted Nelson. He added, "I soon realized that there is an infinite amount of work with no seasonality and a recession proof concept. To meet this high demand I decided to expand utilizing the franchise model rather than hire more service technicians.”
Thus, Nelson developed a training program, operations manual, marketing program and legal requirements to help others prosper as a Doorologist. The Doorologist Van is the hub of the business.
The new home-based franchise offering includes a low start up cost of $25,000 franchise fee which includes a 3 week training program, large protected territory and on-site sales training. Franchisees will also receive instructions on how to outfit and equip a van to operate from.
New Doorologists will learn how to diagnose any door or hardware problem. Doors are the specialty of Doorologists unlike other companies that occasionally work on doors. Doorologists know where to look, what to look for and know the best solution to the problem.
Services are typically provided to commercial building owners, facilities managers, real estate management and property managers. Commercial entries and exits must be impeccably maintained and secure to ensure a steady flow of business and protect occupants and business management from costly liability. This puts Doorologists in great demand.
Security was around the building. It is now on the door.
