Franchise Spotlight: Building Maintenance
Provide services that are essential for millions of buildings and avoid working weekends!
There are millions of buildings in Canada and they all need maintaining in countless ways.
Most home and business owners will pay for external experts to do maintenance tasks, as they do not have the time or skills to do it themselves. This can include minor repairs and pest control, security systems and electrical jobs.
The good news for aspiring franchisees is that it involves family-friendly working hours, but you may need to finance a van and relevant tools.
Sometimes the rights to a franchise territory are bought by a tradesperson who then rebrands their independent business under the franchise umbrella. This will include benefits from its reputation, buying power and head office support.
