As we begin our 9th year, I just want to let you know how much Jackie and I appreciate you, Tom and Tamara allowing us the opportunity to own an Andy OnCall franchise. This was truly the smartest decision we ever made. Andy OnCall is a wonderful opportunity to own your own business and the plan provided is a can’t lose proposition if managed properly. The after sale support is outstanding and this has got to be one of the top business opportunities around. We have enjoyed seven consecutive years of $500,000 plus revenue years and I am confident this year will be the same.
Several years ago I decided to look for a franchise to purchase that would allow me to utilize my management skills as well as my love for home repair and remodeling. After several inquiries into other businesses I discovered Andy OnCall. I was impressed with the hands on, family style the franchisor had in educating me on the demands of being an Andy OnCall franchisee. There were no negative surprises after purchasing the business. Training was well organized, and to this day,if I have any questions, the people in home office quickly and efficiently assist us. While several of our competitors have gone out of business, our sales have doubled our original goals. I am in my 8th year of ownership and cannot imagine owning another business. Andy OnCall is a great fit for me and my family.
Our business opened in Spring of 2008 and was affected by the economy downturn like many businesses. However, being part of a successful franchise provided us a safety net. It has a proven business model that works. The turn-key operation along with great franchise support made it easy to start the business and get help on operations along the way. It is a service-based business which had no inventory concerns. I had no previous experience in the construction or home improvement industry. I had no prior management experience. Andy OnCall's simple and reliable business model made it possible for me to start and run the business. After the initial start-up time, I am able to enjoy a balanced lifestyle with more personal time to spend with my family.
