 Critical Planning Tactics To Achieve Franchise SuccessIf you are looking for an opportunity to quickly jump-start your career, then buying a franchise is an excellent choice. Franchise opportunities are far less risky than starting your very own business, not to mention the benefits of following a proven business model, on-going franchise support, extensive training programs, top-notch marketing materials and operational assistance you’ll receive along the way. Consider these five critical planning tactics to achieve franchise success:

1. Follow the Franchise Model & Systems

 Critical Planning Tactics To Achieve Franchise Success

Be careful not to steer away from the path, the business foundation instilled by the franchisor is proven ultimately for your success. The franchise model you choose to invest in will have taken the necessary steps to determine what type of strategies are working and what has failed. It’s important to not only follow the franchise model you have selected, but to trust its proven track record of success. In order to get the most out of the franchisor’s system, follow the guidelines set in place. When you find yourself following the path laid out by the franchisor, you’ll be more likely to hit the ground running!

2. Take Advantage of On-Going Training & Support

When you join a franchise, remember to fully utilize initial and on-going training programs for a smooth and successful start-up. Tools like online training videos, manuals and webinars are designed to help you build your business. The more consistent you remain with your training, the more successful you will become. Miracle Method, the nation’s largest professional kitchen and bath franchise continues to exceed the industry standard for on-going franchise support and accelerated training programs. As you build your business, don’t forget to take advantage of the tools, support and encouragement offered by the franchisor along every step of the way.

3. Network, Network!

Always take the opportunity to gain valuable insight and knowledge from the franchisor and experienced franchisees. Attending annual conventions, workshops and training is key to growing your business. As you become more acclimated, welcome new franchisees and lend advice when needed. When you take the extra step to reach out to new or existing franchisees from across the network, you may find that you might even learn about new strategies yourself.  Communication is key to solving day-to-day challenges and optimizing overall franchise performance.

4. Closing the Sale

One of the biggest factors that limits the success of a franchise is the lack of sales knowledge. If you find yourself struggling to close the sale, consider bringing on an additional team member to assist with these duties. Hiring employees as your business grows, will free up more of your time to run the operational side of the business. Hiring the right salesperson can be a difficult task, but once you get the right person on your team, you’ll open the door for opportunity and grow your business even more!

5. Consistent Marketing

When you join a franchise, you will gain access to a library of innovative promotional materials prepared by a team of marketing professionals at the Corporate Office. Beyond a proven marketing plan from the franchisor, it’s essential to be consistent with your marketing efforts. To operate your business effectively, be sure to market your product or service using multiple forms of advertising. In fact, most prospects need to see your ad at least ten times before picking up the phone to call you. Boost your brand!

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.

Miracle Method Surface Refinishing is looking to add 15-20 new franchise locations throughout the US and Canada in 2016 to keep up with our record growth. For more information visit: miraclemethodfranchise.com or call John Tubiolo, VP of Franchise Sales and Development at 855-212-7337.

With a population of 1.5 million and one million in Phoenix and Tucson respectively, John Tubiolo, Vice President of Franchise Development for Miracle Method believes these two cities have immense opportunity thanks to their sprawling, multicity metropolitan areas. In additional to thousands of residential properties, Phoenix also boasts high-end resorts due to its popular golfing community. Meanwhile, in Tucson, the University of Phoenix offers another lucrative business opportunity.

“The demand for refinishing is booming. We need more franchisees in territories like Phoenix and Tucson so we can better serve these markets and our national accounts. We think 2016 will be a big growth year for Miracle Method, and establishing a strong footprint in Arizona is a big step in continuing that momentum,” Tubiolo said.

Miracle Method’s customers include not only millions of homeowners, but also hotels, hospitals, property managers, colleges and universities, making the business very attractive to potential franchise owners. Our robust business plan gives franchisees access to corporate support and ongoing technical and administrative training opportunities. We are looking to attract owner-managers who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty, but can also scale the mobile business and focus more on development while trained technicians handle the resurfacing projects. Potential owners only need capital of, or access to, about $60,000 to $80,000 to get started, in addition to the $40,000 franchise fee. Franchisees start with two technicians and two vehicles, with the potential to grow to a multi-million dollar business.

“We are the leader in our industry and we strive to have the best systems in place for our franchisees so that they can experience success and growth in their business,” Tubiolo said. “I believe our greatest growth period is still ahead of us as more residential and commercial customers discover the benefits of refinishing.”

Miracle Method Focused on Growth in 2016

True success comes when vision is combined with a proven product. That’s the story behind Miracle Method, the nation’s largest professional bathroom and kitchen refinishing franchise. Chuck_Pistor_President

President Chuck Pistor is leading the brand into a year focused on growth and is looking to partner with 15 new franchisees in 2016 with specific plans for Florida, Texas and Arizona, in addition to other territories throughout the country.

Pistor became familiar with the refinishing process when a friend refinished his harvest gold bathtub. Recognizing the cost and time benefits of refinishing versus replacement, Pistor researched the industry and saw tremendous opportunity. He then co-founded a coating supply company that sold products to Miracle Method. When the opportunity to purchase Miracle Method presented itself in 1996, Pistor bought the company.

“When I first started researching the company, I asked the first few franchisees in the system about the adhesion process, and there was no question in their minds that Miracle Method’s was the best product on the market,” said Pistor. “A brand with this superior product was close to disappearing due to poor leadership. I was already an expert on the product and I knew that the brand needed a jump start and it has come a long way in the last 25 years, all while maintaining some of our original franchisees, which speaks volumes to the longevity of our product and business model.”

With just a few dozen franchises in business to start, Pistor’s vision and direction has built the network to more than 135 territories that generate more than $54 million in annual sales.

“If you take other similar concepts in our space and add them up in size, we are still the biggest, but I believe that we still have a lot of growth to accomplish,” Pistor said. “It’s amazing how much demand there is, and yet through our research, we know that 80 percent of the general population isn’t even aware of all the benefits of refinishing.”

The challenge has been that many homeowners are unaware that there is a cost-effective, professional alternative to tear-out and replacement that will transform the look of their kitchen or bathroom. Surface refinishing has quickly become a preferred option when updating kitchen countertops, bathtubs and tile. Damaged or dated kitchens and baths can be repaired and updated with a completely new look in as little as two days for about 75 percent less than the cost of replacement.

Miracle Method’s customers include not only millions of homeowners, but also hotels, hospitals, property managers, colleges and universities, making the business model very attractive to potential franchise owners. Its robust business plan gives franchisees access to corporate support and ongoing technical and administrative training opportunities. The brand is looking to attract owner-managers who aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty, but can also scale the mobile business and focus more on development while trained technicians handle the resurfacing projects. Potential owners only need about $60-$80,000 to get started, in addition to the $40,000 franchise fee. Franchisees start with two technicians and two vehicles, and the potential to grow to a multi-million dollar business.

“Our current franchisees understand the opportunity to scale with Miracle Method’s proven business model and services that are in such high demand,” Pistor said. “We’ve really honed in on our process and we’re excited to start 2016 laser focused on development and awareness of our product offering.”
