Why The Handyman Industry?

Invest in the Opportunity of a Lifetime!

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, six out of every ten homeowners have at least seven home projects on their "to-do" list. Helping busy homeowners knock these essential tasks off their schedule creates a business opportunity.

The Benefits of a Home Improvement Franchise

The number of homes in the U.S. tops 115 million and continues to grow. Homeowners looking to protect and increase the value of their homes must keep up with repairs and invest in improvements, but the average homeowner lacks the time or skill to complete these jobs. By joining the home improvement industry as a Mr. Handyman franchise owner, you can expect a steady flow of customer demand.

Research firm IBIS World forecasts a healthy outlook for the handyman franchise industry.1.

"Demand for handyman service franchises has grown substantially as private spending on home improvements has increased." – IBIS World 20211

IBIS World predicts the total value of construction in residential and commercial sectors to rise in the next five years. And the residential construction should benefit from Federal Reserve efforts to keep interest rates low.
