Franchising 101

We get it, when it comes to learning about franchising sometimes it can be a little overwhelming... but here at Neighborly, we want to be a resource to you! Check out some of the most frequently asked questions we get about franchising.

  • HOW DOES A FRANCHISE WORK?

    Franchising is designed to make business ownership more accessible because the initial investment of time, money, and effort are generally less than starting a business from scratch. After all, it’s much easier to get started growing and scaling a business when it is a known, reputable brand than it is to explain an unknown brand to customers who want to know they are hiring reputable help for their needed service.

  • HOW MUCH DOES A FRANCHISE COST?

    Initial franchise cost varies significantly depending on the brand, industry, and territory.

  • WHAT IS NEIGHBORLY?

    With over 40 years in the franchising industry, Neighborly is a family of 19 home services franchise brands located across North America.
