House Doctors Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


House Doctors is a handyman and home improvement business model. No project is too small or too large. We have a unique offering not seen in any other handyman concept which is a subscription based revenue stream. Plans include Rental Maintenance Plans, Quarterly Maintenance Plans and Monthly Maintenance Plans (perfect for aging in place). Another unique feature is our relationship with the Home Depot that benefits the franchisee from a customer acquisition perspective as well as from a recruiting perspective. House Doctors has a 20+ year track record, over 40 franchisees, and unit economics that are very attractive (included in Item 19.) With Premium Service Brands acquiring House Doctors in October 2020, an already great franchise just got a whole lot stronger!

Where can I see House Doctors's FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document)?

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
