Plymouth, MI (PressExposure) August 20, 2008 -- They began as a local handyman service, HandyPro Handyman Service, Inc. of Plymouth and they are expanding, opening franchises across the US. With the success of shows such as âTrading Placesâ and ever-growing to-do lists, itâs no wonder HandyPro was featured among the Top Low Cost Franchises of 2003 in Entrepreneur magazineâs âBe Your Own Boss.â annual edition.
"We specialize in taking care of people's to-do lists," said Keith A. Paul, president of the company. "In today's microwave society, people are so busy that they don't have time to fix a squeaky door anymore."
Keith and Debra Paul started HandyPro in 1993 as a referral service for home improvement contractors. Having received so many calls they couldnât keep up with the demand, they hired a handyman and now have a crew of full-time employees to provide those services directly to customers. HandyPro has helped with to-do lists for over 15,000 homeowners in Southeast Michigan and continues to provide affordable handyman services to homeowners in the metro Detroit area.
HandyPro opened its first franchise in Ann Arbor in March 2001. It also has franchises in St. Clair Shores, Dallas, Minneapolis and Hawaii. HandyPro provides franchisees with unlimited support including site review and selection; hands on training and schooling; operations and employee manuals; demographic site selection; quarterly conference and proven operation systems.
The future is bright for the home repair industry. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the average homeowner spends nearly $400 annually on repairs. In a franchise district of 100,000 homes, it calculates to almost $40 million. Purchasing a HandyPro franchise starts at $15,000.
HandyPro provides nearly everything from carpentry, drywall, painting, remodeling, minor electrical and plumbing for home improvements and repairs in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb and Washtenaw counties. It offers free estimates and guaranteed 24 to 48 hour, on-time service for all work that is bonded and insured.
