Mr. Handyman Franchise Announces Limited-Time Accelerated Launch Program for New Franchisees
The Mr. Handyman franchise opportunity recently announced from Dec. 1, 2012 until Mar. 31, 2013, any new owner who has signed a franchise agreement will be eligible to participate in the program, which offers a cash infusion of up to $20,000 to help get their business up-and-running.
"We're an organization that prides itself on having an extensive support network for our franchisees and celebrating five percent same-store sales growth in 2011," said Mr. Handyman President Alex Roberts. "The accelerated launch program and cash infusion option is one way to show our newest franchisees that we're willing to do whatever it takes to help our owners with proven marketing and operations programs."
Mr. Handyman will invest up to $20,000 of the initial franchise fees collected for a new home repair business during the first 12 months of operation. The investment will be spent on business-building activities and will be designated for programs at the discretion of the franchisor. These funds are designed to provide supplemental working capital for the franchisees' business and will be invested in addition to the normal working capital required. To participate, any new owner must meet certain criteria set out by Mr. Handyman in advance.
It has been well documented that home improvement businesses have been growing steadily since the start of the recession. More homeowners have turned to maintaining the properties they own while the housing market is down, leading to lucrative opportunities for owners in a franchise system like Mr. Handyman. A study by Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies projects double-digit growth in home-improvement spending for the first half of 2013.
We are meeting with Mr. Handyman President Alex Roberts.

The Men’s Spiritual Radio Hour- A show about men and their Spiritual Journey
Our guest is going to be Jim Lansford, Ph.D.
I’m a husband, father, engineer, teacher, carpenter, mechanic, general handyman and part-time philosopher. My day job is as a Fellow at Cambridge Silicon Radio, a wireless chip company based in Cambridge, England. I have worked in the technology field for over 30 years and have been Chief Technology Officer of three wireless startups. I occasionally teach a class at CU-Boulder, which I really enjoy.
I am blessed to live in the Rocky Mountains with my soulmate of 27 years, Lynn Lansford, who is an amazing humanitarian. We have kids and grandkids scattered all across the country.
My father was a hell-fire-and-brimstone Baptist preacher in the rural south, northeast Alabama to be exact…in the Appalachian foothills. We lived in a very poor area that was largely agricultural. My mother was a schoolteacher, and was one of the few college educated people in the town. I was never comfortable with the idea of scaring the hell out of people to get them to become “converted,” so I turned away from religion – I repudiated the idea of God, and thought religion was little more than brainwashing for people who were unwilling or unable to think for themselves.
