Over the next two weeks, we are talking about dadpreneurs and franchising. Recent studies have shown that in the past 10 years, the number of work-from-home dads has more than doubled. The number of stay/work-at-home dads has risen from 81,000 in 2001 (1.6 percent of the total) to a startling 176,000 in the past year (3.4 percent of the total), according the U.S. Census. Our first guest will be Rick Werner of Unishippers. And Rick Werner owns a Unishippers franchise, a third party shipping adviser for small to mid-sized businesses. He has been in business since January and works from home, building his business while serving as the primary caretaker for his 18 month-old daughter. He and his wife live in Auburn, AL
March 14, 2013 at 10AM EST -Over the last month, we discussed several franchise opportunities for aspiring dadpreneurs. This week we are meeting with the ProTect Painters franchise opportunity. Wayne Scherger, a veteran of the painting industry since 1981, founded ProTect Painters in 1994. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, ProTect Painters opened territories east of the Mississippi River and forged a reputation for quality service and exceptional value. In 2009, Service Brands International (SBI) acquired ProTect Painters with the goal of expanding the brand into a leading national franchise business, serving both the residential and commercial markets. "With SBI's financial resources, franchising expertise, and support professionals, we have created a new kind of painting franchise opportunity: one built on innovation, integrity and infinite opportunities," said Wayne. We are meeting with Gregory Lee of ProTect Painters in Richardson, TX. Today we are going to speak with Greg about his experience and life as a ProTect Painters franchisee and how he balances that work life as a “dadpreneur.
We also play a clip from our "Great Quotes in Franchising" podcast with Toppers franchisee Derek Henze.
