Local Couple Sets Out to Save Houstonians Money with Koala Insulation
May 07, 2020 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON - Arm-in-arm, Raymond and Joelle Tong have plans to change how Houstonians go about home improvement.
The entrepreneurial couple has announced the opening of Koala Insulation in the West Houston market. Set to open in the summer, Koala Insulation of West Houston will provide property owners with the full-range of insulation options including spray foam, blown-in and blanket (batt) insulation in neighborhoods like Memorial, Energy Corridor, Galleria, Bellaire, West University, River Oaks and the Museum District.
The business is coming at the right time. As one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, Koala Insulation will fill a need in Houston as development surges amid breakthrough population growth.
“Effective insulation is one of the only home improvement processes out there that actually saves people money through reduced energy costs—and it makes homes more comfortable, too,” said Raymond. “Koala Insulation prides itself on how we educate clients so they can confidently make decisions on an otherwise opaque home improvement process. We’re looking forward to helping our friends and neighbors with great service once we open!”
Raymond, a former Project Leader with the Boston Consulting Group, is bringing a wealth of skills to his Koala Insulation business. His experience in building high-performing teams and helping blue-chip clients succeed in fields like sales, operations and technology will help him as he grows a talented crew serving West Houston property owners. After years of experience in corporate America, Raymond is establishing Koala Insulation of West Houston to serve customers, support employees to be great at what they do, and build a business in the fast-growing and recession-resistant insulation industry. Joelle, a pharmacist, will help in running the day-to-day operations of the business.
Koala Insulation has differentiated its business model with a system that delivers efficiency and comfort to its clients. The brand’s commitment to white-glove service is executed through promptness, trusted expertise and cleanliness. Koala Insulation’s distinctions have driven its growth in the regions franchisees serve today.
“Earlier this year, we launched an aggressive growth strategy to disrupt the fragmented insulation industry and it’s great to see our plan happening so quickly with talented professionals,” said Scott Marr, founder and CEO of Koala Insulation. “Raymond and Joelle are exactly the kind of talented franchisees were looking to expand with coast-to-coast. Their proven business experience, passion for helping others and desire for growth will help us establish the Koala Insulation brand in Houston.”
Insulated from today’s market shifts, Koala Insulation’s franchise opportunity requires low-overhead while offering quick ramp-up time. As a mobile concept with no leases required, entrepreneurs are offered a low-barrier opportunity to break into business-ownership in the fast-growing, $52-billion recession-resistant insulation industry. The brand is equipped with a thorough franchise support structure, complete with training, operations, marketing, lead generation and technology systems for its franchisees.
Koala Insulation is seeking experienced professionals to grow its brand through franchising. The Koala Insulation business model has been built to attract individuals or teams with experience in sales, marketing and managing high-performing teams.
With franchisees currently operating in Atlanta, Daytona Beach, Fla. and Panama City, Fla., Koala Insulation plans to add 200 franchise licenses in the next 12 months. The Tong’s location will be the fast-growing brand’s first location in Texas.
