3 Important Criteria to consider when Evaluating a Franchise
1. The company's position in the industry
No other franchise has performed more inspections than AmeriSpec. AmeriSpec business owners have performed approximately 1.5 million home inspections since 1988. This experience in the home inspection industry is a direct result of our time tested and proven business operating system coupled with continuous innovation. AmeriSpec is Number One in North America.
2. What is the current satisfaction level of the franchisees?
AmeriSpec has realized a 99.6% franchisee renewal rate average over the last four years. These satisfied franchisees follow the operating system, renew their franchise agreement after the original term and many also re-affirm their original decision by making an additional territory purchase. 20% of the business owners in the U.S. have purchased a second franchise and 6% own 3 or more. Satisfied business owners recognize a long term, mutually beneficial partnership with AmeriSpec.
3. Can the level of support be substantiated?
Support must first be quantified with personnel, then by the number and quality of programs available. AmeriSpec currently has 45 employees, 25 of whom are in seven key departments within the franchise support function for US owners. This equates to an average support ratio of one person for every 9 US franchisees.
Within this support framework, each business owner is assigned a dedicated Business Consultant. This affords each franchisee a single point of contact who is trained to provide support in the business management, technology and marketing aspects of the business. Support is further extended through a private intranet site that permits 24 hour communication to occur owner to owner and from owners to the corporate staff.
