Why a Service-Based Franchise Might Be Right For You
In a booming segment of the franchise industry, here are 5 ways Spray-Net stands out
Move aside burgers and biscuits. Service-based franchises are where it’s at! A service-based franchise is defined as a business that provides a service following a franchising model. Eyebrow threading, pet grooming, car repair, senior care, house cleaning and even dental and emergency room visits fall under this umbrella.
Lately, service-based franchises have been thinking outside the box when it comes to the delivery model and have become a booming–and growing–segment of the franchising world for a whole host of reasons.
Using the science and chemistry of exterior paint to transform the look of a home and cost-effectively boost curb appeal, Spray-Net is Canada’s #1 home-improvement franchise! Spray-Net is uniquely positioned in the home care and exterior painting segments of the service sector, making its mark by delivering a superior factory-like finish at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
Spray-Net franchisees enjoy a whole host of advantages from low overhead costs and a fast track to profitability.
Here are five reasons why a service-based franchise like Spray-Net just might be the best business move for you:
1) Low overheads
We provide all the tools and supplies you need to work with in a locally-branded trailer. A mobile spray booth is also part of the package. Because we deliver a service directly to customers, we’re a home-based business that doesn’t require a storefront– especially since we take care of the main aspects of the business such as marketing and customer service. No office space to rent, and no associated overheads. That’s cost savings that goes right into franchisees’ pockets.
2) Focused on Flexibility
We understand the value of work-life balance. Spray-Net’s service-based, on-the-go franchise model means after you complete your jobs, you have the flexibility of catching up on your day-to-day admin from the pleasure of good ol’ home sweet home! At the end of the day, all equipment can be stored in a garage. Since exterior painting is a season business reserved for the warmer months of the year, Spray-Net franchisees in harsher climates enjoy a vacation during winter months, although demand will be more or less consistent year-round in more balmy states like Florida.
3) Faster ROI
Most other franchises, even service-oriented models, take months upon months of buildout before they can go into operation. A fitness franchise for example, needs to scout for a location, negotiate on rent with landlords, and retrofit existing venues for the service, all of which can take a long time before franchisees can even think about making any revenues. On the other hand, we’re an equipment-centered service-based franchise so once you receive all the tools and supplies you need, you can hit the ground running. Spray-Net facilitates a fast track to revenue and a faster return on investment.
4) Dependable Demand
While “Do It Yourself” ways of home-improvement might have been the way of the past (especially among the Boomers), Gen Xers on down are looking to maintain a lifestyle focused more on the things they want to do, rather than the things they have to do. The new experience economy is becoming increasingly popular which means there’s a great demand for someone else to take care of the have-to’s such as painting, house cleaning and more. This consumer trend coupled with the size of the home-improvement industry signals a significant demand for Spray-Net’s services.
Spray-Net is poised to meet this demand with a factory-finish painting service that is superior on practically every surface. Customers are wowed by our concept which uses science to increase curb appeal. Using Spray-Net’s service saves them precious dollars on replacement.
If you’re not into office desk jobs and instead would love to meet new people every day, this is the service-based franchise for you. Our franchisees spend time on the road working on quotes, helping customers pick paint colors and supervising their team on the day of the task. Many millennials and Gen Xers love the people-facing nature of the business and share our passion of delivering a quality service with a concept they love.
Spray-Net is perfect for aspiring entrepreneurs who love to meet people and are excited to help them find the right solutions for their exterior painting needs.
What’s more we support our franchisees every step of the way—from training to marketing (where we even take care of lead generation marketing) to sales calls. There is an incredible synergy among Spray-Net’s franchisees who also support each other’s operations, lending each other staff when the other needs a hand.
If you value low overheads, the flexibility of owning a mobile business, a faster ROI, meeting people, or all of the above, a service-based franchise such as Spray-Net that keeps you front and center, should be on your radar.
