If you’re looking for a business opportunity that won’t break the bank, is simple to master, quick to scale and is at the forefront of a dynamic new industry, Garage Kings is a wise choice. Garage Kings is an exciting new opportunity in the epoxy coating industry, and the growing interest in garage conversions into living spaces, man caves and more makes this a business a worthy investment. As a franchise opportunity, Garage Kings provides world class support, exclusive territories and a culture that is committed to helping you thrive in business. How big your business can get is ultimately up to you, and if you set big goals, we will help you exceed them.
HOW LONG HAS GARAGE KINGS BEEN IN BUSINESS?
Garage Kings was founded in 2015 in a small town outside Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada. The goal was to open a business that founders Jamie and Tim loved doing every day, and their commitment to creating the best product alongside providing the best customer experience made them a runaway success. As of 2019, Garage Kings has nearly 50 locations open in the United States and Canada.
WHO IS THE GARAGE KINGS’ CUSTOMER?
Our clients are homeowners who desire to transform their garages from dusty, cluttered spaces into beautiful, livable spaces. For many homeowners, the garage is the biggest room in the house. This is why homeowners are converting their garages into livable spaces, such as Airbnb rental properties, rec rooms, man caves, or using them to showcase their luxury vehicles. When we get done with a job, the only thing a homeowner can say is, “wow,” and start dreaming of the new ways they can use their space.
DO YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE BESIDES GARAGE FLOORS?
Why do many things when you can be a master at one? That’s our philosophy. We wouldn’t be in this business if the demand wasn’t there. Our franchise network has proven the effectiveness of focusing on garage floors, and while we focus on residential, we also do commercial projects, and outside patios as well. One more thing — our product is the best on the market. We offer our customers a 21-year warranty because that is how much we believe in the value that we deliver.
HOW MANY EMPLOYEES DO I NEED?
We cannot stress the simplicity of our business model enough. You can begin operations with one van and two employees. In the beginning, we recommend that you serve as an owner-operator to keep costs low and maintain the customer experience for which our brand is known. As your business grows, you can scale up by adding additional vans and hiring employees in order for you to focus on selling your services. We want you to be out in your community, pounding the pavement and educating people on the value Garage Kings can deliver to their homes.
WHAT IS THE AVERAGE STARTUP COST?
Because our goal is to help as many entrepreneurs realize their dream of going into business for themselves possible, Garage Kings is one of the most affordable franchises in the home remodeling industry. The average cost to open a new Garage Kings franchise is $97,250 – $241,500.
