June 01, 2017 // Franchising.com // SAN FRANCISCO - To fulfill the need for luxurious and affordable home remodeling products and services, TREND Transformations®, a global full-service residential and commercial remodeling business, is seeking franchisees to develop throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. To jumpstart this development, TREND Transformations® seeks single and multi-unit franchise partners to operate new locations.
TREND Transformations® offers homeowners a unique home renovation experience through its exclusive selection of high quality surface refacing materials including quartz, recycled glass, granite and mosaic tiles. The company’s installation process allows renovations to be completed in as little as one day by fitting surfaces directly over existing ones, eliminating any messy demolition and waste. TREND’s proprietary engineered stone products are stronger than traditional surfaces, making them fitting for a variety of surfaces such as kitchens, bathrooms, shower systems, backsplashes and floors. The company also offers other consumer solutions such as cabinet refacing and storage solutions.
TREND Transformations® intends to open four locations throughout greater San Francisco. Through research on zip codes gathered from Experian, the company has identified specific territories within the market in demand for its services. The San Francisco territories, each containing at least 100,000 households, are San Jose, San Mateo, Santa Cruz and Palo Alto.
“There is a heavy demand for our services within the Bay Area, and we’re looking to capitalize on the growth potential,” said Mike Mallory, TREND Transformations® Vice President of Franchise Development in North America. “We are eager to find individuals with a passion for home renovation who are looking for a fulfilling career. TREND Transformations® franchise owners benefit from a well-respected brand and have a sense of pride for what they do by offering the highest level of quality and aesthetics.”
For entrepreneurs interested in owning a home renovation franchise, the industry has a bright outlook. The home improvement business is a $300 billion industry, and according to Harvard University’s Leading Indicator of Remodeling Activity, it is on the rise and expected to keep climbing in 2017.Additionally, TREND Transformations® franchisees can feel confident they are investing in an eco-friendly business. Due to the use of recycled materials in TREND’s products and virtual elimination of waste, the U.S. Green Building Council, the National Science Foundation and GreenGuard certify the company eco-friendly.
Franchisees are supported by a comprehensive training program that includes both on-site and in-person corporate training, plus continuous support throughout the franchise system. Specialists assist in crafting a business plan tailored to each location’s finances and aspirations. Home renovation experience is not required.
