Franchise Conglomerate Advances Strategic Growth; Plans in Place to Open in Charleston, Columbia and Greenville
POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Global Franchise Opportunities (GFO), the system of internationally recognized, proven franchise concepts including A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections (ABCHI), iCare – Intelligent Home Care Solutions and iHandyMan, today announced a strategic growth initiative to expand into South Carolina.
GFO has seen three successful quarters in 2016, including ABCHI and iHandyMan expanding to India and Africa and iCare growing in Atlantic and Western Canada. To build on this momentum, GFO is currently reviewing both Unit and Master franchisee inquiries within the Charleston, Columbia and Greenville markets of South Carolina. Opportunities are available across all three of the franchise concepts.
“Our expansion into South Carolina is imperative for our Global Franchise Opportunities growth initiative,” said Bill Redfern, founder, president and CEO of Global Franchise Opportunities. “Our goal is to increase our North American presence by 50 units throughout 2016 and to continue growing in the years to come. We’re confident in our prospects in Charleston, Columbia and Greenville and for what’s to come for GFO in South Carolina.”
A proven expert in international franchising, Redfern and Global Franchise Opportunities are responsible for the development, growth and success of these standout home- focused concepts. Redfern started his home inspection business, ABCHI, in Canada in the mid-2000s, remarkably turning it into the country’s largest home inspection franchise after only two years. Today, ABCHI has nearly 200 franchises operating in 19 countries around the world.
Following ABCHI’s worldwide success, Redfern launched iCare – Intelligent Home Care Solutions in 2014 to meet the home healthcare needs of seniors everywhere. iCare offers services that help families overwhelmed with the responsibility of providing care to a loved one, all while ensuring your loved one remains in the comfort of his or her own home.
In 2015, Redfern launched iHandyMan, 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. iHandyMan franchise owners 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.
For self-starters looking for an opportunity to own their own business, ABCHI, iCare and iHandyMan offer a low-cost, proven path to success as part of a profitable home-based concept. Redfern and his team provide extensive training, ongoing marketing assistance and a collection of proven systems and processes to help franchise partners run an effective business. Global Franchise Opportunities is one of the few franchisors offering master franchise opportunities for all three of its franchise concepts. Master franchise opportunities, which start at $19,900, are for entrepreneurs looking to develop a larger territory consisting of multiple franchise locations. Unit franchises start at $14,900. Unit franchise owners can work on their own or with a staff, hiring and managing outside contractors for larger jobs.
