Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) November 12, 2012
A recent Gallup poll finds that 61 percent of Americans say they prefer to be their own bosses. Professionals looking for a way out of the corporate rat race and tradesmen wanting to take the entrepreneurship plunge are in luck. Fibrenew, an international franchise specializing in restoring and repairing plastic, leather and vinyl, announces plans to expand its North American footprint.
Fibrenew, with 202 franchises across the globe and 100 of them in the United States, will open new territories in 15 metro markets across the country. Interest in Fibrenew franchises has accelerated in the U.S. where existing franchisee’s annual revenue growth rate has been consistently rising.
Fibrenew’s business model is well-suited for people with various lifestyles and who want the freedom to set their own hours. It is a profitable home-based, mobile business requiring few or no employees to start with low overhead and the ability to make high profit margins quickly. The beauty of the business is the sheer size of the market—virtually everyone is a potential customer. Fibrenew restores anything and everything made of plastic, leather and vinyl including home and office furniture, and upholstery for cars, boats and planes.
“This is a recession resistant business because, especially in a down economy, people would rather restore their furniture or upholstery than go out and buy new,” says Fibrenew CEO Michael Wilson. “Fibrenew offers an opportunity to own a lifestyle business with an innovative, hands-on training program and a flexible business model that allows franchise owners to be their own boss. In addition, franchise owners run a truly green business because items are refurbished instead of sent to the landfill.”
