A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections and iHandyMan Grow into Africa Through Master Franchise Signed Agreements

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Global Franchise Opportunities, the system of internationally recognized, proven franchise concepts including A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI), iCare – Intelligent Home Care Solutions and iHandyMan, announced today that ABCHI and iHandyMan will soon be available to residents seeking its services throughout the continent of Africa.

The Pompano Beach, Fla.-based franchisor has signed eight master franchise agreements to significantly expand the two concepts within the countries of Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Angola. Under the agreement, master franchisors in each country will lead the openings of several ABCHI and iHandyMan offices within their respective territories.

“After intense market research and ongoing discussions with professionals in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Angola, we’ve identified a need for reliable home inspection and maintenance systems capable of tackling a range of home projects,” said Bill Redfern, founder, president and CEO of Global Franchise Opportunities. “We’ve been working tirelessly to emerge into Africa through master franchising in order to continue making the woes of inspecting and maintaining a local home or business a thing of the past.”

ABCHI is Redfern’s first franchise concept and is the world’s fastest-growing home inspections business, filling a void in what is often seen as an ad hoc home inspection industry. Using proprietary software, ABCHI creates comprehensive reports for consumers that help them make more informed decisions about homes they are considering purchasing. A growing number of real estate firms, agents and mortgage companies are also commonly recognizing ABCHI franchise partners as unparalleled in working with their clients.

iHandyMan is Redfern’s third franchise concept, which frees homeowners from relying on specialized carpenters, electricians or plumbers, who are busy and sometimes require an hourly fee just for arriving at the job. Franchise owners with this concept are bonded and insured, and are prepared for any job of any size. The home repair service covers a wide variety of projects to meet a host of needs from plumbing, electrical work and tile repair to working on concrete driveways, roofing and siding.

“We are very excited about introducing A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections and iHandyMan in Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya and Angola,” said Mike Smith, director of franchise recruiting for Global Franchise Opportunities. “The brands truly complement each other and implementing our growth plan through master franchising has already proven successful. The response from our master franchise candidates has been incredible. This is a big step for us and more announcements will be coming soon.”
