The Local Handyman Group was essentially created out of a need that we had, we couldn’t find anyone in our area to help out when we moved into our house with a 2-month-old. The needs were simple, but there was a problem – no one wants to do the small jobs. There was obviously a need out there for people to have their “honey-do” lists taken care of. We wanted to focus on making a “messy” industry professional again. Branded, professional, trustworthy, and on-time were really important to us as customer service is key!
Kristen and Craig saw this as not only a great opportunity for themselves, but other like-minded entrepreneurs. With many years of franchising experience, they then started the process to franchise the Local Handyman Group in British Columbia as a starting point, quickly becoming Western Canada’s largest handyman brand, expanded across Canada into the Ontario market with franchises now being offered in the United States.
