Screenmobile Drives Growth in 2018 Amid Rising Demand for Screen Installation
Nation’s Leading Mobile Screen Service Rides Wave of Industry Momentum as Remodeling and New Construction Surges
March 07, 2018 // Franchising.com // THOUSAND PALMS, Calif. - Screenmobile, “America’s Neighborhood Screen Store,” is cruisin’ from coast to coast.
The nation’s leading mobile residential and commercial screen service announced today its strategic growth plan that stands to significantly increase the number of franchisee licenses it projects to sign in 2018 - growing its franchise presence by more than 15 percent. Reinforcing the brand’s expansion plans are its existing franchisees, who overwhelmingly feel extremely positive about their Screenmobile business and are renewing their franchise licenses at a rate of 99 percent.
Additionally, interest in the franchise is mounting as several factors drive consumer and commercial demand:
- Home remodeling activity nationwide is expected to rise more than 5 percent in 2018*
- Commercial remodeling has grown annually during the last five years at a clip of more than 10 percent**
- Single-family housing construction is projected to grow 9 percent***
- Construction of education and public buildings are expected to grow 6 percent, leading the 4 percent increase that will be seen with non-residential construction***
- Increasing concerns over the transmission of diseases carried by insects and pests such as the Zika Virus
“In addition to health, wellness and proper screen functionality, a trend we see today is bringing the outdoors indoors by incorporating a four seasons screened-in room with both home and commercial properties,” said Scott Walker, president and CEO of Southern California-based Screenmobile. “We’ve disrupted the screening industry by providing a cost-effective and convenient solution for an otherwise inconvenient home and business improvement experience. In doing so, we’ve paved the way for significant growth across the United States.”
Screenmobile has five new openings already planned for this year, and is strategically targeting 15 key markets to achieve its projected goal of more than 120 franchisee licenses in its collection. With its growing number of licenses, Screenmobile is covering the map and is well-suited to target select DMAs in California, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina, Oregon and Ohio for expansion.
“We’re in the perfect position to award new franchise opportunities to individuals and teams who share our ambitious mindset,” said Walker. “Our franchise provides business owners with a chance to take control of their professional lives and make a difference in their communities by contributing to the economy and ensuring that families in their neighborhoods are enjoying the great outdoors from the comfort of their homes.”
Customer satisfaction is generated from the convenience and professionalism of the business. In a single visit, the Screenmobile representative arrives in uniform, then measures, manufactures, installs and tests the screens on site. Afterwards, Screenmobile follows up with proactive communication to ensure the needs of the customer are met.
As franchisees, Screenmobile owners are provided a protected territory, marketing materials, tools and equipment, uniforms and a trailer. Another attractive aspect of owning a Screenmobile franchise is the corporate support system, which includes the brand’s training and guidance programs that empower the franchisee from day one. New franchisees are required to attend “Screenmobile University,” a two-week program to learn about business operations, goals and values. They then go through 13 weeks of ongoing video call training known as “The Fast Start Program.”
Screenmobile provides the perfect franchise opportunity for family-focused individuals or couples who are looking for the perfect work/life balance. Franchisees identify with the familial spirit that comes along with being part of the brand.
