Why Re-Bath franchisees have much higher revenue than the average contractor
Re-Bath is a great franchise for contractors because we’ve created a way to make earnings easier
If you’re a contractor looking for a comparable franchise, a place where you can make the most of your experience and hard-earned skills, Re-Bath has a number of advantages.
As the world’s largest bathroom remodeling organization, with more than 150 locations open or in development across the U.S., the brand is on an upward trajectory.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average general contractor brings in about $93,000 a year in revenue. Meanwhile, the top quartile of Re-Bath franchisees generated more than $3.68 million in average sales in 2015; the second quartile averaged more than $1.78 million; and the third quartile averaged more than $1.14 million.
How we pull in the numbers
Re-Bath’s unique condensed installation time frame alone helps you optimize your income potential. Instead of working on a single job for 3-5 weeks, a typical Re-Bath remodel is completed in 3-5 days. In the time it takes you to do one 5-week job, you could potentially complete 11 Re-Bath projects. We have linear installation systems to make the remodeling process more efficient.
We also manufacture our own line of Durabath branded products which utilizes seamless, waterproof materials made from our proprietary acrylic or revolutionary thin natural stone. Our acrylic materials a lifetime warranty, while the natural stone items have a 10 year warranty. We do everything we can to satisfy our customers, which leads to more referrals as well as repeat business.
Austin, Texas-based franchisee Josh Agrelius, who had worked as a handyman and remodeler before purchasing his Re-Bath franchise, has been very successful in his market of about 1.8 million. “We are a major player in our area,” Agrelius says. “Other companies do a wide range of work and don’t specialize in bathrooms — we are the king of bathrooms. With more than 800 people a week moving to town and the average age of homes increasing, it’s an amazing opportunity.”
