Scottsdale, Arizona (PRWEB) December 20, 2005
Home maintenance franchiser Maintenance Made Simple announced a one-stop home repair service for everything from masonry and landscaping to plumbing and electrical, employing tradespeople who call ahead, arrive on time and—best of all—do the job right the first time, at a reasonable price.
Since its debut in 2003, Maintenance Made Simple has been rewiring the home repair industry through a franchise concept that emphasizes quality, consistency, dependability and value. Assembling a formidable network of entrepreneurs, tradesmen, business systems and operational expertise, the company has grown to 30 franchises nationwide and will triple in size within the next 12 months.
In December 2004, Maintenance Made Simple was named the #1 Handyman and Home Maintenance Service in Entrepreneur magazine’s 2005 list of America’s 100 Hottest New Franchises, signifying its pioneering status in the home repair field.
“Maintenance Made Simple has done more than simply bring discipline to the fragmented home repair industry. In everything we do, we start with the homeowner’s mindset. What does he or she want or need?” says Michael McNinch, president of Maintenance Made Simple. “Satisfying the customer is the priority that drove our scheduling system, our stringent personnel standards, our service plans and our performance guarantee. Maintenance Made Simple brings peace-of-mind like no other home repair resource.”
Home improvement continues on an unprecedented scale in the U.S., with more than $125 billion spent annually according to Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. Increasing numbers of homeowners, realtors, and neighborhood associations are seeing the value of continued upkeep as a way to increase property values and overall home enjoyment.
Maintenance Made Simple has capitalized on these trends as well as the need for time- and skills-challenged homeowners to find quality tradespeople at a fair price. The company can address virtually any repair, replacement, or installation issue around the home including heating and cooling, windows and doors, gutters, siding, carpentry, decks and fences, painting and much more.
All Maintenance Made Simple tradesmen are licensed and insured and have extensive experience in their field. The company does not impose trip charges or mark up materials, and all work is backed with a 1-year limited guarantee.
Maintenance Made Simple franchisees, many of whom are mid-life businesspeople looking to own their own business, enjoy a level of support unparalleled in the home improvement industry. Programs include extensive headquarters training and on-site consultation; to ensure a solid start to their operation, Maintenance Made Simple also provides a comprehensive sales lead program and full menu of marketing services.
Among the most valued benefit for customers and franchise owners alike is Maintenance Made Simple’s customer service. The company maintains a national call center, equipped with advanced and proprietary customer relationship management software, to schedule all customer referrals and appointments. Contractors employed by the local franchisee know their schedules days in advance and are in touch with appointment specialists from the field throughout their workday. Even more, contractors are required to call the homeowner 30 minutes before every scheduled appointment, eliminating no-shows and those dreaded multi-hour spreads for arrival times.
Maintenance Made Simple even makes it simple for homeowners to schedule their maintenance work via the Internet. To learn more about the company, its services and franchise opportunities, call 866-778-6283 or visit http://www.m2simple.com.
