The DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen remodeling franchise is booming. Average franchisee revenue grew more than 60% from 2011 to 2014, and this is shaping up to be another great year for the remodeling franchise. Now we’re looking to grow by partnering with an entrepreneur in Richmond, Virginia.

Why Richmond? Why now?

Richmond is a prime market for a remodeling franchise. Home prices shot up 5% from May 2014 to mid-2015, according to Long and Foster Market Minute, and a mix of rising prices and low housing stock means that many homeowners are choosing to remodel their homes rather than move into hard-to-find new housing.

There are more than 530,000 housing units in the Richmond area according to a report published by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development on the city’s Comprehensive Housing Market Analysis, and the Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University recently cited Richmond as an ideal location for remodelers to set up shop. The university’s study makes clear that Richmond’s growing population of people ages 55-64 is the demographic most likely to remodel their homes because a) they have the money to do so, and b) they would prefer to age in place. This makes Richmond a great place for a remodeling business!
