Issue Focus: Home Improvement and Maintenance 

Don’t miss our July/August 2019 issue!

For many Canadians, their home is their most valuable asset. It’s no surprise that homeowners from coast to coast place a heavy value on keeping their investment – whether it’s a bungalow, condo, cottage, or duplex – in tip-top shape. According to the Canadian Home Builders’ Association, 69 per cent of Canadians own a home, while four in five millennials want to buy one.

There’s a reason why franchise concepts within the home improvement and maintenance sector are a big hit with Canadians across the country. In 2015, Canadians spent more than $17 billion on home improvement, or an average of $5,000 per household (Statistics Canada).

Investing in a home improvement franchise allows you to capitalize on this trend, without having to build your business from the ground up. Featuring a wide range of franchise concepts in construction management, emergency restoration services, concrete repair, wood renewal, window cleaning, and more, the July/August issue of Franchise Canada provides the tricks of the trade you need to uncover the right opportunity, and to build your franchising future in this burgeoning industry.

The franchising adventure doesn’t stop in the home, however. This issue will also include an engaging lineup of exciting opportunities in other thriving sectors, including travel and hospitality, food service, and more. And as always, we’ll share inspiring success stories, expert advice, and helpful tips and tricks to help everyday Canadians of all stripes achieve their dreams of business ownership.
