Team of Military Veterans Opens Specialty Drywall Repair Franchise in North Carolina, PatchMaster Serving Iredell County
Veteran Tim Forrest leads the charge as group of veterans brings PatchMaster franchise to the Piedmont Region
May 03, 2021 // Franchising.com // Statesville, NC - Retired Army serviceman Tim Forrest leads a group of retired Army professionals with over 60 years of combined service who are venturing out on a new mission.
Forrest and his partners are bringing the fast-growing PatchMaster drywall repair concept to Iredell County and surrounding areas in the Piedmont Region of central North Carolina. The veteran-led franchise location is now open and ready for business.
Forrest oversees day-to-day operations, but successful leaders and fellow disabled combat veterans John Gallina and Rob Moore are working with him to grow PatchMaster in the region — and ideally beyond.
“We want to not only build our own franchise as veterans, but to also grow future franchises with a focus on veteran ownership,” said Tim Forrest, co-owner of PatchMaster Serving Iredell County. “We want to continue to serve our community through this ownership.”
As military professionals, each owner has the skills to lead in diverse environments and achieve desired outcomes. In addition, each of the partners are also professionals in their civilian roles with background in engineering, business management, process improvement, and construction operations.
PatchMaster’s business model offers customers a fast, professional solution for drywall repairs. Most busy handymen, large drywall companies or contractors don’t want to perform small drywall repairs. Service professionals like plumbers and electricians often don’t have the resources to fix holes they leave behind.
PatchMaster specializes in fixing holes caused by renters, plumbing leaks and DIY projects that just can’t seem to get finished. In most cases, PatchMaster can complete the job in one visit.
“We’re really excited that this talented team of veterans and business leaders chose to join the PatchMaster franchise family,” said Paul Ferrara, CEO of PatchMaster. “Their combined skill sets, work ethic and determination to help others really makes them stand out. We also thank each of them for their service to our country.”
PatchMaster Serving Iredell County will cover Statesville, Concord, Troutman, Lake Norman, Mooresville, and surrounding communities. The business is already active in the Statesville Chamber of Commerce and committed to giving back to the community through charitable projects.
