Due to the positive economic growth several franchises at Miracle Method Surface Refinishing, the nation’s largest professional bathroom, and kitchen refinishing franchise, have expanded territories as owners position themselves for growth in 2019.
Erin and Gabe Gilliam from Salt Lake City, UT are a great example of owners who joined Miracle Method two years ago and this month have secured a second franchise territory. “The success we’ve continued to experience created a great opportunity to secure an additional territory and expand our growth and reach. We always intended to expand fairly rapidly and we were happy our projected growth exceeded our expectations so we are able to get it done this year. The growth in commercial work combined with a solid base of residential work gives us a lot of optimism in continuing to grow and serve the Salt Lake community.”
Multi-unit franchise owner Ryan Gladhill, who owns franchises in Pennsylvania, Maryland and South Carolina said “we’re excited to expand and add new opportunities to refinish kitchens and baths in our areas, both the residential and commercial markets are both very strong. It’s exciting to grow and our team members are getting great support to be able to do so.”
“Several of our owners have been able to build more sophisticated business models with multiple locations and a management structure that enables them to oversee their operations no matter where they are located,” said O’Kane. “This is exciting for both our franchise owners and for team members in the support office to be a part of.”
On the opposite side of the country, Tyler Murphy, who owns multiple units in San Diego, CA, Riverside, CA and Seattle, WA is seeing his businesses grow because of the increase in commercial refinishing services. “Commercial business is certainly growing leaps and bounds. It’s a great way to offset lower residential business times like over the holidays,” Murphy said.
Scalability and opportunity to expand are important to all franchise owners wanting to grow their business and finding a franchisor who supports existing owners with territory expansion or multi-unit ownership should be on the mind of every new prospective franchise entrepreneur,” says Gwyn O’Kane, VP of franchise development. “At Miracle Method we offer discounts off additional territories and where additional territory granted is adjacent to an owners existing territory, we do not require owners to open another facility like many franchisors do.This program drives increased revenue for the franchise owner and it is a win/win for Miracle Method in that we are supporting an already proven successful franchise owner.”
