Since its inception in 1990, Handyman Connection has become one of North America’s leading remodeling and repair companies. Handyman Connection offered its first franchise in 1993 and since then has expanded to 98 locations throughout the United States and Canada. The company is part of the high demand home improvement services industry providing solutions for the very small projects that take just a few hours, to the large interior and exterior renovations that require multiple trades, the coordination of materials, and detailed project management.
The need for property repairs is never ending – it is not a trend or a fad that will disappear next year. Property owners always need “something done”, and Handyman Connection franchisees work to become the trusted company in their area that homeowners call for any home improvement project when they simply don’t have the time, tools, or talent to take on a project themselves.
The company’s strength is in its ability to handle many hundreds (if not thousands) of small to medium sized jobs each year and develop long-term relationships with their customers, craftsmen, vendors and each other. The franchisees enjoy high repeat business which creates a long term income stream and equity that’s easy to illustrate for that eventual day when they decide to sell their business and cash in on the nest egg they’ve built.

Support & Training Provided
Training and Support provided:
Before opening, all new Handyman Connection franchisees go through an extensive training program. We break up the training to provide them with what they need at that time and continue the learning process well beyond the opening of their doors. Prior to opening the business, they will receive an e-learning syllabus which will prepare them for their first formal training at
Approximately 2 to 4 weeks later the General Manager assigned to their location will arrive in their office for the next training session, (TSC) where they will get hands on support and feedback from someone who has extensive experience in assisting franchisees with opening new businesses.
Additionally there may be an occasion where a General Manager may visit the franchisee prior to any formal classroom training to help facilitate the completion of the required prep work and make sure that certain timelines are being hit.
Once the business opens the support & training does not stop, it’s really just beginning. As a first year franchisee (and after as necessary) they will be assigned to a General Manager where our involvement with the business will be quite hands on and intensive, including:
After they have successfully demonstrated the ability to achieve their business goals while maintaining high margins and customer satisfaction ratings they may also be invited to participate in peer to peer events other than the annual convention. There is a point at which all new franchisees mature where they want feedback from someone other than the corporate staff. We understand that need and go to great lengths in order to facilitate it. Once they have some practical, hands on experience under their belt they can participate in additional events (Flight Groups & Pilot Programs) aimed at improving their business and the franchise as a whole.
