Since the start of our business in 1999 our goal has always been to be the very best gutter contractor of our territory. As we began work to make that a reality, we realized we were creating a franchise model and we didn’t even know it. The idea of becoming a nationwide gutter contractor was born out of this epiphany. And from there we continued to explore franchise opportunities.
As of 2015, we are officially launching the franchise and looking for candidates wanting to use our methods and practices to invest in qualified territories. Our idea of a franchisee is the person who isn’t just looking for a job that pays well, but rather is looking for an opportunity to join a growing business and make an impact your local community. If that sounds like you we’d love to hear from you. The first step is to get to know the heart of our business practices. Read the FAQs and qualifying questions below to see if our model fits your agenda as a business person.
The Brothers are Ken and Ryan Parsons, a former teacher and graphic designer turned family business owners. Ken started the business in 1999 and Ryan became a partner in 2003.
We have molded and shaped our business practices since 1999 and firmly believe in the developed methods, plans and practices. That doesn’t mean we are not open to hearing new ideas. If you have an idea for a way we can improve our plan, we are happy to discuss it.
Determining a qualified territory is completed through several qualifying metrics. Our goal is to have 250,000-450,000 owner-occupied dwellings. This typically is accomplished in a 50 mile radius or less and a total population of 800,000. The other metrics we look for are homeowners over the age of 35 with incomes of $60,000 or more.
Our business plan puts you on a path to figure that out for yourself. It all depends on your effort in investing yourself in the business and following the best practices. The more committed you are to your business the more you will get out of it.
We consider all qualified candidates. Not being a college graduate will not discredit you from becoming a franchisee. It depends on you and how invested you are in learning to become a successful business professional.
Definitely not. We will give you all the training you’ll need to know the ins and outs of the gutter trade.
Yes. We will always be there and continue to give you the help and resources you need. As long as you follow the business plan you shouldn’t need much help other than what we will always be giving you. (Marketing, Call Center, etc.)
The Brothers want someone who is looking to learn. You don’t have to know the installation process of a gutter system or the best business practices, you just need to be a candidate who believes in our model and practices. Our ideal candidate is someone who is passionate and hungry in investing in the business practices to becoming a business owner – not just someone looking to get a job.
Ask yourself the following questions:
Am I passionate and hungry for success?
Am I ready to own a business instead of working a job?
Am I willing and able to learn new methods, practices and plans?
Am I ready to make a serious commitment of my time and energy?
