I saw that, but figgured he was just discussed from posting on 'that other forum', and he would give this one a tumble :laughing:How many letters in hello?
YEAH. Sounds just like NY.What I know of the franchise concept can make a LOT of sense in certain circumstances and damned little in many others. One of those others would be a state with very little oversight of licensing and irrational permits and inspection processes where just about any idiot with a 6' ladder and a pair of kleins can call himself an electrician.
Any of that ring a bell?
Welcome!thanks for input. the franchise investment is about $30,000. it does not seem like a lot of money. There are over 150 franchise locations in the US. the system must work. I am just scared to death of opening business in this economy. Any other suggestions or comments about Mr. Electric?
I agree with that for the most part and also I realize somepeople don't have what it takes to run a business on thier own and need some help. But, I also think it's pretty cheesy and don't think $30k is a small investment without proof positive up front of a sucessful system.YEAH. Sounds just like NY.
$30k does not seem like a lot??? Man, can I borrow a few thousand?
150 franchises means it works? That is a National average of THREE per state. That does NOT seem like very many to me. Tell me there are 150 per state and I might consider it successful.
I see Mr.Electric and I also think CHEESY!
MANY areas of NYS are booming right now. Some are dead. If you are good and can prove to your customers that you are better than the average handyman you can easily make it work without the help of Mr. Electric.
