Should I purchase a franchise business or start my own business from scratch?


Whether you purchase a franchise business or start your own business, the level of success is inherently dependent on variables, such as the location, the systems used, and the entrepreneur’s own ability. Franchised business models have existing systems for marketing and operations that may allow the entrepreneur to avoid costly mistakes and may save them time while learning what others have already done.


What type of person makes a good franchisee?


Normally, it is a person that is interested in putting in the time and effort to run a business. A good franchisee is not different than any other type of business person in that they must be willing to take a risk to receive any reward.


How much does it cost to start a Jack of All Trades Handyman®?


This information is spelled out in our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) as required by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Our Estimated Franchise Start-Up Costs sheet indicates the cost to be $34,620 - $56,525. Actual costs vary depending on a variety of influences, such as payroll costs and the level of franchisee involvement in the day to day activities of the business.


How can I finance a portion of my start-up and operational costs?
