November 05, 2015 // Franchising.com // PLAINVILLE, Conn. - When it comes to business opportunities, John Russell knows first-hand that timing is everything and the CEO of Green Home Solutions® says there will never be a better time for entrepreneurs to go green.
“The Green Movement is the new wireless,” says Russell, who caught the wireless wave that began in the late 1980s and rode it to become one of the largest and most successful franchises for Wireless Zone®, operating stores throughout Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Indiana, Kentucky, New York City and Washington D.C. “In the early days of wireless, cell phones were available to only a few people that could afford them. Now, only 30 years later, they are a staple of our existence. Everyone has at least one”.
“The green movement is in a place similar to where wireless was in the late 1980s,” he continued. “Up to this point it has been for a fringe group of people who are committed to it, even though living a green and organic lifestyle may be more expensive.”
That is quickly changing, Russell said, which is why he joined Green Home Solutions earlier this year to lead the company’s franchise expansion effort that is expected to grow to more than 1,500 service locations within five years.
“There is no doubt that what happened with the wireless industry is happening right now with the move to a more organic and natural lifestyle,” Russell said. “In the past, ‘green’ products and services were considered by most people to be less effective and more expensive. Not anymore. The consumer demand for green products and services is exploding, which is creating tremendous growth opportunity for our franchisees.”
Since launching its franchising program less than 12 months ago, Green Home Solutions has established itself as the leader in providing safe and non-toxic protection from unwanted insects, mold, airborne impurities and odors around the home and the workplace, with franchise agreements in more than 150 markets.
“When I meet prospective franchisees, I always ask them, ‘don’t you wish you had gotten into the wireless in the late 1980s at the start of the wave?’ ” Russell said. “This is a chance to get in on the start of the next big wave. And our franchise format makes it very easy to take advantage of this opportunity.”
Unlike many franchise opportunities, Green Home Solutions franchisees do not have the added expense of a storefront or lease. Instead, only a vehicle is required, allowing them to get into business much quicker than most franchises. In addition, a simple royalty structure creates a greater opportunity to be successful.
And while the low cost of entry and high margins are reasons for its dramatic franchise growth, Russell said the Green Home Solutions franchise opportunity delivers an even more fulfilling benefit.
“Our franchisees have a chance to do work that means something more than cranking out sandwiches,” he said. “together with our family-friendly business model hours, and not only is it a chance to get out of the rat-race, but it is a chance to make a dramatic difference in the lives of people in their communities. All our franchisees have multiple stories about the people they have helped.”
