This is an outstanding opportunity to buy two well established, complementary, opposite-season, profitable businesses located in the San Francisco East Bay Area. With one of these high-margin profit centers, this company offers the consumer a unique service providing the convenience of never having to worry about removing or re-installing window and door screens, or doing screen repair and/or replacement of their worn-out or damaged screens. The mobile workshop includes all the necessary products and equipment to perform quick, high-quality, screen repair and fabrication right at the customer's home. The company also sells and installs new pre-fabricated window and door screens as well as related products such as retractable awnings, pet doors, etc.

And just when the screening/awning season starts to wind down the company's other business, which is a franchise, starts to kick in doing installations of holiday decorations. In only 6 to 8 weeks the niche business generates significant cash flow. The franchise license covers the most economically affluent territories in Contra Costa county (Black Hawk, Walnut Creek, Danville, Alamo, San Ramon, Pleasanton, Dublin, Livermore, etc.). And since there are no other franchisees in the adjacent territories, the owner of this particular franchise could service most of the Bay Area. For most families, the fall/winter holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year. Finding time to decorate one's home or business is not an easy task, often requiring several days of climbing ladders, testing bulbs, and enduring uncomfortable weather conditions. That is why those who can afford to have someone decorate their home are often eager to get out of the task of doing it themselves. As the premier Holiday Decorating service, this company helps busy families gain more time together during the holidays. Installing holiday spirit is a great job to have—high level job satisfaction--especially when you can earn great profits in the process! A 90% customer retention rate has been achieved. The company also sells or provides 3-year leases on elaborate sets of decorations and will store these sets for some customers during the off-season.

Franchising works by combining the drive and energy of the entrepreneur with the experience and expertise of the franchisor. Worldwide, franchising is currently riding a wave of global growth unparalleled in its history. And for the right kind of person, franchise ownership can provide the perfect vehicle for achieving financial success. That type of person thrives in a space somewhere between the Lone Ranger and the Corporate Drone. In other words, franchising provides the opportunity to be master of your own financial destiny, while enjoying the support of a well-established organization and the extensive resources it commands.
