Wayne’s and Kim’s Story

Wayne and Kim Owczarzak had a mission: to control their financial destiny. So, they met with a franchise consultant who introduced them to prospective brands. When they learned about Mr. Handyman® and the expansive network of Neighborly®, the couple decided to invest and open their own franchise. In 2010, they launched Mr. Handyman of Wheaton-Hinsdale, a new location for the brand in West Chicago.

With flexible schedules and plenty of knowledge sharing among franchise owners, Wayne and Kim found that owning a Mr. Handyman business has indeed helped them control their future – and has brought them several steps closer to their goal of a comfortable retirement.
