The Hottest Home Improvement Franchise Opportunities to Watch in 2020
Luckily for entrepreneurs examining and comparing different home improvement franchise brands and concepts, Franchise Business Review, a trusted resource in the franchise world, does the hard work of researching and determining the best franchise opportunities each year.
The FBR list is based solely on overall franchisee satisfaction and performance data that the organization collects over the course of 18 months, says Emily Bryant, client success manager at FBR.
Twenty-three brands in the home services category made the list for 2020. Click here to explore the full list, which includes metrics on investment levels and more for each franchise.
It is said that seven is a lucky number, so here are seven of those 23 worth taking a look at in your quest to parse through the top franchise opportunities.
1. Aire Serv
Aire Serv is a need-based business, backed by Neighborly, a large home-services franchise. As a Neighborly company, Aire Serv franchisees are part of a network of more than 2.5 million customers, 3,500 franchises worldwide, and 14 U.S. home services brands.
Specializing in the installation, maintenance, and repair of residential and commercial heating, ventilating, air conditioning, and indoor air quality equipment and systems, Aire Serv has been in action for over 25 years.
2. Shack Shine
Shack Shine aims to become a household name, standing out in a highly fragmented industry, for one-stop-shop house-detailing services—tapping into an exterior cleaning industry valued at $10 billion dollars annually, with 5% year-over-year growth for the past five years.
Shack Shine also touts its model’s potential for scaling the business by adding vans and crew as a franchise grows.
3. Mosquito Joe
Mosquito Joe has emerged as a leader in the burgeoning mosquito control industry, capitalizing on strong branding, smart systems, an emphasis on excellent customer service, and the ability to grow rapidly nationwide.
In August of 2018, Mosquito Joe was acquired by Neighborly.
HouseMaster lays claim to being the first company in the home inspection industry, by nearly a decade, to franchise. The brand now boasts around 400 franchises with more than two million home inspections under their belts.
The system’s success owes to placing importance on franchise relationships, proven marketing methods, support, innovation, aggressive risk management tools, quality assurance, and cutting-edge technology.
5. DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen
Entrepreneurs and remodelers see strong numbers in DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen remodeling franchises. The brand claims its franchisees enjoy much stronger margins than do many remodelers.
The company’s focus on simple principles such as service, respect, and integrity, along with training and well-designed systems, has enabled DreamMaker franchises to thrive.
6. The Glass Guru
The Glass Guru positions itself as “The Local Glass, Window, Door, and Shower Experts You Can Rely On!” They are an industry leader in glass repair and replacement services for both residential and commercial customers.
The scope of The Glass Guru’s offerings includes window repair, window and entry door replacements, new shower enclosures, in-glass pet doors, and mirrors. The brand also offers a unique, environmentally friendly window restoration service, to solve the problem of foggy windows without spending more on replacing them.
We may be biased, but, then again, FBR isn’t, and they named ShelfGenie once again (we made the list in 2019, as well) as a top franchise to watch. This respected third-party honor confirms that ShelfGenie is one of the best home improvement franchise opportunities out there.
A major reason we’re a top franchise is that our products and service are a simple and welcome solution for homeowners. ShelfGenie custom Glide-Out shelves eliminate common frustrations in the kitchen, pantry, and bath.
Franchisees satisfaction is a key criteria FBR uses in making its list. We realize the only way we can be successful is if our franchise partners are successful. For that reason, ShelfGenie dedicates a large portion of our time and resources to supporting our franchise partners.
