Why is the franchising system so popular in today’s business world? Because is works! Take a look at any successful franchise: Coca Cola, Subway, Starbucks, and you will find a proven business plan and an intricate support system supporting its growth. All franchise systems, including appliance franchise systems, are centered around one concept: expansion. Franchising has become one of the most successful ways of doing business, and more and more individuals are taking advantage of this lucrative system by opening franchise locations of their own.
The Mr. Appliance franchise is one that provides profitable business opportunities to people across the country. Our proven business system has created many successful businesses and brought high-quality appliance repair services to all kinds of people and their families. Our success is a direct result of the power of the franchising system.
Why a Mr. Appliance Franchise?
The Mr. Appliance franchise is North America’s leading home appliance repair franchise system. With Mr. Appliance’s proprietary appliance service management systems, our franchisees can learn how to find new customers, gain market share over local competition, and operate a profitable, predictable and sustainable business. Mr. Appliance services all major in-home appliances with an emphasis toward the higher end. We know our customer, who she is, and what she expects from a servicer. If you are currently in the appliance industry or not, continue to read on to learn how Mr. Appliance can help you achieve your goals.
1. Learning from experience
Mr. Appliance’s franchise proprietary systems have been developed over the past 30 plus years. As a franchisee, you are able to draw on the experience of not only your franchise coaches, who are industry experts, but also the large network of other franchisees to help you meet your personal and professional goals. Additionally, you have support of the specialists, who know the appliance industry, in the following areas: marketing, sales, technology and public relations. You’re not out there on your own.
2. Brand recognition
Mr. Appliance’s national branding will help you rise above your competition at the local level so you can attract more customers who are focused on value and not price.
3. High success rate
We succeed when you succeed. Year after year, studies and surveys prove franchised businesses have a much higher success rate than independent businesses. That’s because with a franchise, you have a full support team, advice from other franchise owners and much more purchasing power (more on that later).
4. Business systems
Many business owners wear most, if not all of the hats in their business and they end up working more hours than they wish to. This takes away from quality family time and enjoying the lifestyle they hoped a business would provide them. Our business management software integrates the business systems into a streamlined package, from marketing to financial statements, to improve your efficiency and effectiveness. As an owner, you have real-time access to the key performance measures of your business and can compare them to system-wide benchmarks. We work with owners to implement systems so they can work on the business and not in the business.
5. Attracting the right employees
For a business to grow it is essential to have the systems in place to recruit, hire, train, compensate and retain employees. Our proven training systems along with our HIRE program can help you develop your employee base and help them achieve their personal and professional goals, ultimately freeing up your time to work on the business.
6. Attracting and keeping the right customers
The Mr. Appliance franchise helps successful business owners attract more profitable customers. These select customers require unsurpassed quality workmanship, effective communications and professional appearance. Our proprietary software program will keep your customers close by providing them what they want: customer self-dispatch portal, 24/7 national call center, automated follow-up after each service call, and much more. Our marketing team supports your needs in areas such as advertising, social media, promotional material, strategic account development, and statistical tracking. To hear what customers are have to say about Mr. Appliance, CLICK HERE.
Today, business is changing and moving so rapidly that it is imperative business owners stay ahead of the curve with ongoing training. Education for you and your employees are done throughout the year at our national training center, at your location, through online webinars, at regional meetings and at our annual reunion.
8. Succession plan
After many years of hard work it is unfortunate when a business owner is unable to sell their business for a profit or the business falls apart after providing it as a legacy to a family member. Mr. Appliance will help you develop a business plan and help implement the necessary systems to help ensure a successful transition when you’re ready.
9. Cross marketing
You’re not alone in your local market. Because of the complimentary brands (7 and growing) in our franchise network, your residential and/or light commercial customers now have a hometown service team. You can partner with other Dwyer Group franchise owners in other industries in your market to create a service powerhouse, as well as sharing of referrals.
10. Purchasing power
It’s simple. Buy better quality products and services and pay less. Because of our size, we have been able to negotiate great discounts and/or rebates on nearly everything you need to run your business including equipment, vehicles, supplies, marketing materials and much, much more. We want to help you bring more money to your bottom line.
