A recent article from The Street-an American financial news and services website co-founded by Mad Money man, Jim Cramer-titled "Looking for an Investment? 9 Franchises for About $100K," reports that there are available franchises you can own that won't "clear out your savings." With a franchise business, you're not winging it off a cocktail napkin or flying solo once you're off the ground. The franchisor has "a proven model...a franchisee playbook...and offers ongoing support and assistance in the form of marketing, technical help and sourcing." Writer, Julie Kulikowski, chose nine franchise businesses in the $100,000 investment range to introduce to The Streets' 4.2 million unique visitors. One business opportunity was a painting franchise-ProTect Painters.
You never thought of owning a painting business? You're not alone, but a painting franchise opportunity has much to offer.
For ProTect Painters, your reasons for investing in an established franchise business are many in addition to the low-cost of entry:
- Lifestyle business
- Flexible workweek schedule
- Low overhead
- A network of thriving owners
- Service Brands culture
- Ideal territory
We'll give the writer her due for selecting painting franchises for their "growth prospects in their niche industry," but what she may not know is that the residential and light commercial painting industry is a $40 billion giant. And what you typically find are unreliable mom-and-pop contractors who cut corners on quality, service and value-another reason to explore a painting franchise with a trusted brand name like ProTect Painters. In the article, independent franchise advisor Joel Libava recommended that if you are a strong salesperson and love being out of the office selling, "spend a good deal of time investigating low-investment franchises." We couldn't agree more, and recommend that you put ProTect Painters at the top of your list. For franchise opportunities, contact us to request more information on this great franchise opportunity.
