A recent Harris Poll survey of 1,300 millennial homeowners (ages 18-34) found 42 percent of those surveyed were embarrassed by their lack of home maintenance knowledge.
That’s likely one of the reasons why the home services category of franchising is thriving. The fact that women now comprise nearly half of the U.S. labor force, and that Baby Boomers would rather hire someone else to do maintenance and upkeep on their home than do it themselves are two others.
Home services will always be in demand, and the good news is that you don’t have to be a handyman yourself to be part of this billion-dollar industry.
According to franchisegator.com, many home services businesses also can be run from home which provides franchisees with lower start-up and overhead costs. “You’re sure to find a franchise that fits your skills and budget,” they write.
Here is a look at just a few of the hot options in the world of home services franchises:
