Epcon Franchising Celebrates Significant Milestone
September 13, 2021 // Franchising.com // COLUMBUS, OHIO - Epcon Communities Franchising celebrates two business milestones in 2021: 25 years of franchising anchored on a rock-solid foundation of 35 years of homebuilding experience.
Epcon and its Franchise Builders develop low-maintenance homes in communities popular with 55+ buyers. Together, they have developed over 35,000 homes in the United States by focusing on an underserved niche: luxury, low-maintenance, ranch homes. Co-owners Ed Bacome and Phil Fankhauser started Epcon Communities in 1986 to build homes that would better meet the needs of home buyers in search of a beautiful, single-story home within an amenity-rich community. Demand was immediate, which inspired the pair to franchise their building plans and management systems to other builders in 1996 through Epcon Franchising.
The National Association of REALTORS Research Group reported in the 2020 Home Buyers and Sellers Generational Trends Report that the 55+ homebuilding market makes up the largest share of home buyers at 39 percent.
Epcon’s expertise in the 55+ market is derived from their ongoing market research and analysis processes that keep them at the forefront of this ever-changing audience, allowing them to best match home buyer needs as well as industry growth trends.
People in a variety of life stages are attracted to homes that meet and exceed their evolving lifestyles. They may want to spend more time with family and friends, pursue travel and hobbies, or start a new business - they are however no longer interested in spending their free time pushing a lawnmower, raking leaves or shoveling snow. In other words, they’re looking for an Epcon home in a low-maintenance Epcon community.
