We have been glad to help some of these few franchise owners below for our Site 18 Franchise. Enjoy their testimonials.
I worked closely with my consultant over the course of several months as he guided me through the franchise process and finding the right fit for me. He was a fantastic resource as he knows the franchise thoroughly, worked in franchising extensively before becoming a consultant, and is very skilled at picking out what’s important to the individual he is working with. Most of all, his approach provided great credibility to the franchise concept for me in that I always felt that he was advising me versus selling a franchise to me. I highly recommend Sites 18 to anyone considering entering the painting world.

Franchised businesses are more than twice as likely to still be in business after 5 years than non-franchised businesses. This is a compelling reason for any aspiring entrepreneur to consider buying a franchise. But just what is it that makes a franchise more successful than non-franchised businesses?
There are several reasons:
Established Operating System. Franchises have developed, tested and honed an operating system that has proven to be highly successful. By applying this proven formula for success, new franchisees greatly increase the odds in their favor that they will also be successful.
Collective Buying Power. Since franchisors make arrangements to supply all of their franchisees with the goods and services they sell, the franchisor can leverage this buying power into lower costs of goods sold for their franchisees. And one of the keys to success in any business is keeping more of every dollar you earn, this buying power gives franchisees a powerful advantage over their competition in the marketplace.
Branding Power and Marketing Plan. People buy from companies they know and trust. And the more they see and hear about a company, the more they tend to trust it. By pooling all of their money together, franchisees are able to build a strong nationwide brand that benefits all franchisees equally. It’s truly a case where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
Startup Assistance. Getting started is one of the most critical periods for any new business. The franchisor has been through the startup process many times and is experienced at making the right decisions. Franchisees weather this time frame successfully because they have the support and expertise of the franchisor behind them.
On-Going Support. Once the doors are open and the business is up and running, the franchisee has the on-going support of the franchisor. This is critical to success because the franchisee has an experienced mentor they can rely on to continue to make the correct business decisions that will ensure their long-term success.

We wanted to report on the success of one of our franchisees has had over the past year. Darrell Taylor who has been a franchisee owner for over 3 years has just reported that he is making well over $150,000 a year with our franchise. He is taken our training seriously. We have shown him how to get started from the ground up. He came to us with a painting company that was losing money. We walked him through our very intentional process of gathering painting leads as well as how to follow up with those leads. It has been a long process for him. However, he is very excited about his possibilities for the upcoming future. We would like to say congratulations to him. You deserve all of your success because you have been willing to put in the time and energy to be successful.
