Miracle Method of Northwest Atlanta Franchise Starting Huge Dorm Renovation

With over 35 years’ experience in the home building industry, Mike Simmons is running a Miracle Method Surface Refinishing franchise that tackles arguably the most important rooms of the home – kitchens and bathrooms.

“I’m a second-generation builder. My dad was the old-type home builder where he taught me how to do everything. People would call my dad about building a house, and we would go and frame it, do the shingles, siding, trimmed it out,” said Simmons.

Mr. Simmons was raised in Indiana, and moved to Georgia and started out remodeling homes, then moved into building houses including a number of them in Cobb, Georgia.

Since 2012, together with his wife Kay, Mike has been the proud owner of a Miracle Method franchise in Northwest Atlanta.

Atlanta Franchise

Regarding searching for a business opportunity, Simmons said, “We were looking for something different, something you could grow a company in a downturn market,” adding that a former employee had introduced him to the company during the economic downturn around 2008.

Since the beginning, the Simmons’ Marietta-based franchise has done a number of jobs across the North Metro Atlanta area, spanning from Paulding to Gwinnett counties. Outside of residential work, much of their works has been has been for commercial properties, including hospitals, schools, universities and hotels.

The Simmons’ franchise employs 11 people and up to 16 during the busiest times of the year, generating over 1 million in revenues in 2015.
Mike and Kay were the recipients of the President’s Award for 2015, which is hand selected by Miracle Method President Chuck Pistor to recognize Exemplary Service and Commitment to the network.

Miracle Method of Northwest Atlanta is preparing to begin one of their biggest projects in their 4 year history – refurbishing an estimated 340 bathrooms and floors at a university campus, mostly dorm bathrooms but also other areas including a tiled foyer. They will begin the work during the school’s Spring break while the students are off campus. Any work that is not completed during Spring break will be finished during the summer.

Mike and Kay just celebrated 32 years of marriage. Working together presents its challenges, but they create a good balance with one another. Mike is a very driven entrepreneur and Kay is more focused on the numbers and she keeps them grounded.

Tips for Organizing a Small Kitchen

Tiny houses are all the rage, but for some of us, the thought of less storage than we already have is very intimidating. Truth be told, we all have more “stuff” than we need, but it’s hard to part with things that are sentimental, or things that we don’t use often but are still useful, especially when it comes to entertaining. The challenge is, how do we maximize the space that we already have?

Top Tips for Organizing a Small Kitchen

  1. It may seem obvious (or maybe it’s not) – Do a major purge. It’s sometimes hard to let go of things, but if you’re holding onto something that you never use, donate it! If you haven’t used it for a year or longer, it’s time to let go.
  2. Get rid of any duplicates – how many spatulas, cheese graters, mixing bowls do you really need? Maybe you know a college student or a newlywed couple that is just starting out. Create a gift basket with your duplicates and give them a gift card to pick up something else they need. Your kitchen gets tidier and they get some tools they need without having to go out and invest in all new pieces.
  3. Stack plates and bowls with removable shelves. You can find inexpensive racks at the dollar store and maximize the space in your cabinets by stacking upward.
  4. Use Lazy Susans – easily access all of the items in the cabinet, rather than having to only utilize the space in the front of the cabinet that is within reach. A lazy Susan will allow you to store more and make use of all of the space in the cabinet.
  5. Use small bins to corral small, lose items like cookie cutters, chip clips, measuring cups and measuring spoons.
  6. Make use of vertical space with slide-out storage towers to store items in unused spaces like between your washer and dryer.
  7. Use office file organizers to store Tupperware lids and pots and pans vertically.
  8. Apply a rack to the wall for your spoons and spatulas to save drawer space.
  9. Use a hanging closet organizer on the pantry door to store snacks, rice packets, baking and sauce mixes to save shelf space.
  10. Install racks on the inside of cabinets to store spices, aluminum foil, olive oil, vinegar, etc.

A Time to Give Thanks

Although we are thankful all year, this time of the year reminds us to pause and take stock of all we are grateful for and express that thanks outwardly. We all get busy with the hustle and bustle of daily life and sometimes forget to appreciate all that we have and truly be thankful. Being thankful is more than saying, “Thank you” to the checker at the supermarket or being grateful when traffic is light on a rushed day. It’s good to be grateful for the little victories in life, but it’s also important to stop and evaluate what really matters in our lives and to let those we care about know that we are thankful for them and the way that they enrich our lives.

Happy Thanksgiving

So, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you.

Thank you to our hard working franchisees that bring innovative ideas to us and support the local economy by running a small business and providing jobs to the areas they serve. Our franchisees are committed to quality and service and we are so grateful that they chose Miracle Method.

Thank you to our staff for working so hard and your commitment to Miracle Method. We are so fortunate to have a team of creative, loyal, and intelligent people that believe in small business and helping our franchisees succeed.

And finally, thank you to our customers. We know that you have choices when it comes to updating your homes. We have been updating homes for over 35 years and we could not have done it without you.

Miracle Method Helps You Get Top Dollar When Selling Your Home

If you are trying to sell your home and are looking to update your bathroom before you put it on the market, there are a few things you should consider. For starters, you DON’T have to rip out and replace your old tub and sink.  Traditional replacement remodeling is very time consuming and you can expect your bathroom to be out of use for several weeks or even months. Replacement also happens to be very expensive, the average cost of a bathroom remodel can ranges between $5,000 and $10,000.  If you’re looking for a remodeling solution that’s flexible, time-efficient and affordable, avoid any process that involves removal and replacement.

At Miracle Method, we can take any worn, damaged, hard to clean unit, and repair and refinish it, adding 10 – 15 years to the life of the fixture and make it look like new.  Not only is refinishing/repairing a bathtub or sink much less expensive than replacing it, but it is also much greener, keeping the excess tub or sink out of a landfill.

Realtors around the country  know that bathrooms and kitchens in a home can make or break a sale.  Homeowners are encouraged  to make these upgrades, as it adds significant value to the home. Notably, HGTV’s Lisa LaPorta from Designed to Sell tells viewers that “Tub refinishing is a great improvement to make, and it saves you a lot of money in labor because you don’t have to pay someone to rip out your old bathtub.”
