Drywall and ceiling repair services grow during pandemic-driven housing boom
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (February 7, 2022) – The Patch Boys, America’s first, largest and most trusted drywall repair franchise company, today announced that the company saw extraordinary growth and record sales from 2020 to 2021 by nearly doubling the number of new franchisees and growing existing location sales revenue by 50%.
As the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic played out, The Patch Boys has seen an increased demand for services as people spend more time in their homes and invest in upgrades and renovations. Given the nature of their work in peoples’ homes, the franchise continued to prioritize safety measures and accommodate customers’ varying comfort levels.
The company’s success can also be attributed to a unique labor market and an increase in owners from diverse backgrounds, many looking to leave the corporate world and start a business of their own.
“From an airplane pilot seeking a career pivot that would allow him to spend more time at home to a former hospital administrator who dreamed of owning her own business, we’ve seen an incredible increase in new franchisees across the country, all with unique backgrounds,” said Ted Speers, President of The Patch Boys.
In 2022, The Patch Boys’ growth is focused on training new franchisees, hiring additional support and continuing to add technology-driven resources throughout the network as the company scales its successful business model nationwide.
“In spite of the pandemic and other challenges, The Patch Boys has overwhelmingly excelled in its first two years within the BELFOR Franchise Group,” said Rusty Amarante, President of BELFOR Franchise Group. “We’re proud of their quick rise to be one of the most accessible, affordable home-based franchises in the industry.”
