August 19, 2013 // Franchising.com // Lubbock, TX – Christmas Decor, the premier holiday lighting and decorating company in the U.S., is in the business of creating magical memories this holiday season, boosting revenue for seasonal business owners while brightening communities across the country. Investing in an add-on franchise, like Christmas Decor, has proven extremely beneficial for seasonal franchisees as it helps to generate a consistent cash flow throughout the year, retain employees during the winter months, add extra service options for existing customers, and offer services to potential new customers.
Over the past several years, the market for outsourcing holiday decorating services has skyrocketed as consumers find it safer and easier to hire companies like Christmas Decor to handle all of their outdoor residential decorating needs. With a 95+ percent customer approval rating and an average sales growth of 3 to 5 percent each year, the Christmas Decor concept serves as a topline add-on franchise opportunity for outdoor businesses.
“The Christmas Decor franchise allows seasonal businesses such as landscaping, roofing, pool cleaning and lawn care the ability to take full advantage of winter profits during the most prosperous holiday season of the year,” said Christmas Decor President, Brandon Stephens. “Rather than becoming financially stagnant and cast aside throughout the winter months, franchisees can leverage Christmas Decor as an add-on franchise that consistently yields positive results and increasing sales.”
As the audience for outsourcing holiday decorating continues to grow, Christmas Decor has made it their mission to not only alleviate the frustration and pressure accompanied with the arduous task of holiday decorating, but also to leave an everlasting impact by partnering with causes that touch millions of lives. In addition to the Decorated Family Program launched in 2005, in which Christmas Decor franchisees nationwide donate products, resources and time to decorate the homes of local military families, this year Christmas Decor will be unveiling a new partnership with CancerCare, a national organization committed to helping people cope with the emotional, practical and financial challenges of cancer. To help raise money for the cause, the franchise will be selling wreaths and donating 100 percent of the proceeds to CancerCare.
“We look for franchisee candidates who have an entrepreneurial spirit and are also passionate about giving back over the holiday season,” said Stephens. “We’ve found that the most successful franchisees believe in the Christmas Decor concept as not only a prosperous add-on business, but also as a great way to support community outreach and attract loyal clientele.”
As experts in the service industry, Christmas Decor franchisees bring with them extensive experience and training, producing unparalleled results and top customer service. In addition to offering custom designs to ensure every home is unique, Christmas Decor installs, maintains, takes down, and stores customers’ holiday decorations, alleviating decorating stress while delivering the look customers want within a reasonable budget.
“I opened my Christmas Decor franchise in 1999 and over the past 14 years, my sales have consistently increased each year at about a 10-20 percent growth rate,” said Gary Fouts, owner of Christmas Decor in Southwest Chicago. “As a Landscape Maintenance Contractor throughout the summer months, leveraging Christmas Decor as an add-on business has been extremely beneficial as I’ve been able to go back to my summer client base and established relationships and offer additional winter services, which makes the customers happy and provides me with a solid client foundation.”
Serving more than 375 markets throughout 48 states and Canada, Christmas Decor has set its sights on opening 25 new locations around the nation over the next two years.
Since its inception in 1986, Christmas Decor has risen to become the premier holiday lighting and decorating company in North America. The Texas-based company was founded by Blake Smith as an off-season supplement to his landscape business and as a method to provide year-round work for employees. Christmas Decor quickly emerged as a viable business opportunity and today, operates in more than 375 markets in 48 states and Canada. Christmas Decor is highly revered in its field and has received consistent recognition for its efforts, including its popular Decorated Family Program which has been featured on The TODAY Show, TIME.com, CNN and FOX, among others.
