Overview

Mr. Handyman

 
Bolster Your Future
 
Mr. Handyman is a nationally-recognized industry leader in home improvements, repair, and maintenance, making us a well-known and trusted brand.

Tapping in to the Seniors Market

With the rapidly expanding senior population, it's no surprise the senior care service industry is booming. Who wouldn't want to get in on that kind of market share? Volume alone could keep you in business indefinitely.

Why compete with the senior care franchises if you can start a business in a virtually untapped market?

Fortunately, there is a very specific space carved out for the home services industry within the seniors market. It's called Aging-In-Place, and it gives senior citizens a real alternative option when it comes to where they will live out their golden years.

Aging-in-Place is the ability for seniors to stay in their home rather than move to an assisted living facility. They are able to stay in their community safely, independently, and comfortably, regardless of age, income, or ability level. The need to modify homes in this way opens up market opportunity. Just some of the revenue opportunities include: 
  • Ramp installation
  • Reinforced handrails
  • 5-foot by 5-foot turning space
  • Non-slip floors
  • Cabinetry alteration
  • Levered door hardware
  • Adjustable closet rods and shelves
