You may not know this…

But every Monday at 1pm EST, me and Kevin (who along with Charista research and put together these franchises every week)...

Kevin and I go Live on YouTube and explain these franchises. You get to come ask questions and get some deeper insight into these opportunities.

Here’s the link to this Monday’s Live. You can go there now, and tap the “bell” to remind you. 

Also, we do NOT get paid from these franchises just to feature them.

These are all franchises that our brokerage team works with and helps get clients introduced to them.

That’s part of how our business makes money.

We offer this information and value in hopes that those of you who find it valuable and interesting and want to be introduced to the franchises we show….

Will request a “Territory Check” and we can make that introduction for you. If that’s all you want, there’s no cost to do that.

We also have a bunch of free training, and we do have a very low cost paid online training. 

That is our Franchise Buyers Academy, it’s a whopping $27 with 4 hours of industry secrets on How to Unlock The Profit Potential of Franchises…

It’s 9 years of my franchise knowledge condensed into a step by step online training, showing you everything you need to know about making money owning a franchise BEFORE you buy. 

You can check out what’s included in the Franchise Buyers Academy here.

FEATURED RESALE

blue kangaroo packoutz

Franchise resales possess many benefits for aspiring business owners - established cash flow, experienced employees, systems in place, and brand awareness to name a few. 

This week, our featured resale comes from Blue Kangaroo Packoutz, a full-service contents cleaning and restoration franchise. Blue Kangaroo Packoutz partner with restoration companies and insurance carriers to help families and businesses in a time of need. When there is fire or water damage, Blue Kangaroo Packoutz offers services like document cleaning and restoration, antiques restoration and refinishing, electronics restoration, furniture reupholstery and more.

Boise, ID

  • Started in the summer of 2023

  • Asking price of $215,000

  • Owned by a husband and wife team; each of them own another business and they have not been able to allocate the necessary time/resources to the franchise

  • Approximately $75,000 in revenue in Q1 of this year

  • Warehouse lease in place and assignable to new owner

  • Equipment and vehicle included in the sale

  • Fast-growing market - Boise is one of the fastest growing cities in the country.

Franchise Empire’s Take:

  • Contents restoration is covered by insurance. Everyone has it. For an insurance company, it's much less expensive to clean and restore an item than it is to replace it. For a homeowner, they'd usually much rather have THEIR item with sentimental value.

  • Traditional property restoration companies fix a house/building after a fire/flood/storm. There is quite a bit of competition in the industry because of the demand. Blue Kangaroo received referrals from those restoration companies instead of competing with them.

  • According to their FDD, the 2023 AUV for all locations was $880,415.

Benefits for the Franchisee: 

  • Rebates and Relationships - Being a part of the Authority Brands allows you to have steep rebates and discounts using the BuyMax vendors. You also have negotiated relationships with Goodman and Amana HVAC products.

  • No HVAC Experience Necessary - If you’d like to, you can learn HVAC skills through the Success Academy platform, but most owners bring on a GM who has a license and will supply the technical knowledge needed for the business.

  • Needed Service - This isn’t something that can be replaced by Amazon or AI. Even a handy person isn’t able to DIY their own HVAC system. There will always be a demand for heating and cooling.

  • Authority Brands - You’ll not only have an opportunity to network and get referrals from sister companies, but you’ll have the chance to own multiple businesses under the same umbrella company. There are over a dozen other franchises that all share a similar customer.

Episode #53: How She Built a $2.7 Million a Year Franchise from Scratch

Imagine it’s the recession of 2008. The economic world is falling apart, people are losing their jobs, and companies are failing….

And you ask your company to lay you off, just so you can pursue your crazy dream of being an entrepreneur.

That's what Jessi did, and her father thought she was crazy. She was in a lucrative finance job, after graduating from Harvard, of all places - BUT climbing the corporate ladder wasn’t the path she wanted to follow.

Jessi not only built a multi-million dollar business from scratch, she also went on to franchise the Taste Buds Kitchen so other people just like her could use her business model to achieve their entrepreneurial dreams.

In this episode, we dove into all the ups and downs she's faced along the way and she gave some seriously tactical advice on how to overcome adversity.

Sit back, take some notes, and enjoy the show!

I’ll see you at the same time next week!
