Hire A Hubby seeks franchise expansion in UK

Handyman franchise Hire A Hubby has launched a franchise owner recruitment drive across the UK, as it seeks to replicate its success in Australia, where the company has almost 300 franchise owners.

"Hire a Hubby presents an attractive opportunity for handymen and DIY enthusiasts to turn their skills into a serious income," says the company. "This ever growing business offers invites suitable candidates enjoy a real opportunity to operate a self-owned business within the parameters of a proven successful, professional and comprehensive business package.

"Each franchise owner receives a specially mapped and exclusive geographical area with an average of 5,500 households that will historically each spend around £1,000 per annum on maintenance (franchise owners seeks to capture a portion of this customer base). Couple this with local businesses, letting agents, nursing homes and shopping centres and there is more than enough opportunity to develop a franchise into a sizable business."

As well as franchise owners, Hire A Hubby is looking to establish a network of Area Development franchise owners whose role will be to recruit franchise owners and provide local support including marketing, business monitoring and focused advice.
