Congratulations to one industrious husband-wife team for expanding their successful Miracle Method location to serve the entire elizabeth_david_richmondRichmond, VA, market. David and Elizabeth Dowdy recently completed the purchase of an additional territory to meet the rapidly increasing demand in that area.

The Dowdys bought the Richmond location in 2009 and soon noticed that their original territory was not sufficient to meet the growing demand in that area. Five years after opening their Miracle Method location, Elizabeth is still surprised to learn that people don’t know about surface refinishing: “It’s a great niche that’s growing every year.”

David and Elizabeth came to Miracle Method from very different corporate backgrounds. By taking advantage of ongoing training opportunities, corporate support, and the repository of resources, they were able to create a successful team. David manages the technicians, inventory, operations, and vendors; while Elizabeth’s expertise is in customer service, sales, and marketing.

When we asked the Dowdys for the secrets to their success, here’s what they said:

  • Being part of a company that offers a proven business model and unmatched proprietary refinishing system
  • The ability to recognize and meet the growing demand for Miracle Method’s services
  • Delineating roles and responsibilities to capitalize on individual strengths
  • A strong commitment to serving all customers—both new and returning

It’s no wonder the Richmond location is a success. We’re proud to have this committed and talented team as part of the Miracle Method family! The Richmond location is one of more than 140 Miracle Method offices nationwide and in Canada that has the support of the company’s over 35-year reputation of quality and service.

Entrepreneurs are drawn to Miracle Method for many reasons—like financial stability, brand recognition, proven business model, low investment costs. And Miracle Method owners have been named among the most satisfied franchisees in the nation.

But succeeding as a franchise owner requires more than a good reputation and business plan. Research shows that successful franchisees generally share the following common traits:

  1. Strong Management Skills. A successful franchise relies on strong, stable management. You’ll need to hire the best people and delegate responsibility as the business grows.
  2. Love of Learning. An open mind and a willingness to take advantage of a support network are profoundly important to continually improving the operations and profitability of a franchise.
  3. Ability to Multitask. Running a business requires wearing many hats. You should be as comfortable behind a conference table with colleagues as you are in the trenches with employees.
  4. Sales Experience. You must always approach sales as an opportunity to provide a quality, cost-effective solution for your clients’ problems.
  5. Competitive Spirit. A natural competitive drive will motivate you to set goals and achieve them. Healthy competition will also inspire your employees to excel.

Do these characteristics sound uncannily familiar? If so, it might be time to become your own boss. Investing in a franchise may be a very smart career move for you.

Oklahoma City needed a quality, affordable alternative to traditional remodeling and renovation. Who better to bring it to them than Oklahoma native—and new franchise owner—Todd Mattoon.  todd_okcity

Todd spent the last 14 years in Dallas as Area Sales Manager for an industrial weighing equipment company. When he decided to move his family back to Oklahoma, he quit his job and invested in a Miracle Method franchise.

Why Miracle Method? “The decision was easy,” says Todd:

  • Miracle Method’s comprehensive support system—ongoing training, marketing, and technical support programs
  • All the friendly, knowledgeable people he met—from corporate headquarters to fellow franchisees
  • The quality of Miracle Method’s innovative refinishing process—something he could really stand behind

Oklahoma City homeowners now have the option to save up to 75% over the cost of replacing kitchen and bathroom fixtures. And, our process takes only a day or two to complete.

“I’m confident that Todd’s determination, belief in our product, and commitment to excellence will make the Oklahoma City location very successful,” says John Tubiolo, VP of Miracle Method Franchise Sales.

This location, the newest of more than 135 Miracle Method offices nationwide and in Canada, will offer affordable, quality refinishing services to individual homeowners as well as commercial customers in the Oklahoma City area.
