Charlotte, NC, United States, 2006/01/13 - Experts give advice on how to select a franchise or business opportunity for those who are looking for a low-cost, handy man, remodeling, bathroom, or bath tub liner home-based business..
Many people who are fed up working for others look for business opportunities and often struggle with whether they should go it alone or be a part of a franchise.
Good advice can be found in a Wall Street Journal article: "Joining a franchise with a strong support system can help you through the day-to-day challenges of running a business."
Similar advice comes from the International Franchise Association.
"Why would you spend years and the investment required to establish a successful brand when you could buy a franchise which would give you immediate access to a successful business system and a brand name which others already have made successful?" according to the IFA web site.
Training, advertising efficiencies, buying efficiencies, continuing support are the advantages pointed out in the Wall Street Journal article.
"Learn from the success and failure of others," is the primary message of the IFA, and the advice of Dan Kaplan, president of Surface Specialists.
Kaplan says his franchise fulfills the recommendations, and even more. Surface Specialists provides a work from home franchise business that has a proven success formula.
People with skills and knowledge about construction, bathroom remodeling, and handy man services often struggle because they do not have business skills that mean the difference between business success and failure.
Kaplan's company fills a consumer need for inexpensive bathroom remodeling through a system that recovers rather than replaces. His company provides franchisees with a proven business, training, supplies, and business operation expertise.
"There's no shortage of anxious prospects. Our franchisees can benefit greatly with this highly profitable business opportunity," Kaplan said. "We keep our costs to the consumer very low, and the profits for our franchise owners high."
Instead of ripping out old tubs, sinks, and counter tops Kaplan teaches his franchisees a better way. The refinishing job is not only less costly, it is much faster. An entire bathroom can be made new in a single day, with little or no inconvenience to the family.
Kaplan has over 40 franchises in operation, but there is room for many more in locations all around the country.
"Our low-cost franchise will enable you to have a better chance of success than starting a business on your own. You can keep overhead down by working from your house or garage. We provide complete training, and follow that up with ongoing help and support," said Kaplan.
His approach has been the key to success in every city the company has entered.
"In today's economy we are the perfect alternative to a full remodel job. In fact, we have now expanded to add additional services for other parts of the house as well," said Kaplan.
