Starting a Handyman Business
Could This Be the Opportunity of a Lifetime?

With services ranging from installation to minor plumbing/electrical to painting or repair, a handyman business allows you to meet homeowners' needs in every area of the home year-round!

According to IBIS World, a market research firm, the outlook for handyman services in the home repair and improvement industry is positive.

Discover how owning a Mr. Handyman® franchise could be your best approach to starting a business in this exciting sector of the home service industry.

What We Do
Serving a High-Demand Market by Serving and Supporting You
Mr. Handyman is a national franchise providing a one-stop shop for a range of home maintenance, repair, and improvement solutions. With over 25 years of experience, we are one of the largest networks of home improvement contractors in the United States and Canada.

Mr. Handyman's home improvement franchise opportunities give motivated people control over a fulfilling career and lifestyle. Our widespread brand recognition and specialized resources provide the freedom of being your own boss without the uncertainties of running a business alone. Opportunity is waiting in our supportive and family-like franchise system.

Why The Handyman Industry?
Invest in the Opportunity of a Lifetime!
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, six out of every ten homeowners have at least seven home projects on their "to-do" list. Helping busy homeowners knock these essential tasks off their schedule creates a business opportunity.

The Benefits of a Home Improvement Franchise
The number of homes in the U.S. tops 115 million and continues to grow. Homeowners looking to protect and increase the value of their homes must keep up with repairs and invest in improvements, but the average homeowner lacks the time or skill to complete these jobs. By joining the home improvement industry as a Mr. Handyman franchise owner, you can expect a steady flow of customer demand.

Research firm IBIS World forecasts a healthy outlook for the handyman franchise industry.

IBIS World predicts the total value of construction in residential and commercial sectors to rise in the next five years.

Ideal Franchise Owner
Do You Want to Improve Your Quality of Life?
Much like the value our Mr. Handyman franchise owners provide customers in improving their homes, you may be looking to make improvements in your professional life. Perhaps the desire to keep working in a corporate environment has worn thin. You may feel underappreciated (and under-compensated). Or you simply may be motivated to start your own business.

Either way, a future in the home repair and improvement industry holds a world of opportunity. If you are driven to succeed, enjoy serving other people, and want to be part of an organization where your fellow franchise owners treat you like family, you might be an excellent fit for Mr. Handyman!
