  • Big (Apple) Time

    Frank Sinatra said it best. “If I can make it there, I’ll make it anywhere.” And life in the Big Apple was very welcoming for our Neighborly brands on a recent visit.

    Lights, camera, Neighborly action…

    I flew to New York to first appear on CNBC’s “On The Money” show with host Becky Quick. This was an opportunity to talk about the growth of Neighborly brands, which has surpassed $2 billion in annual system-wide sales across almost 3,700 franchisees in nine countries. And it was also a chance to showcase the rising demand for what we do so well, both as a franchise opportunity for more business owners as well as the many jobs we are creating across the home services.

    As I shared on the air, there are plenty of people out there who are not do-it-yourself experts, and that has made business across Neighborly that much more important.

    Our goal to help the end-user customer has now made us the largest provider for home services in the world, and we’re not done yet!

    Being Neighborly at a trade show is good for business!

    From CNBC’s studio I went to the Javits Center where The International Franchise Expo proved once again just how popular franchising is as a system for doing business here and around the world. Tom Portesy and his team from Comexposium did another outstanding job producing a franchise expo that attracted interested investors from across the country and foreign delegations eager to take concepts back home to places around the globe. Traffic at our Neighborly booth was non-stop and our team talked to so many wonderful franchise prospects who want to be part of our incredible journey.

    Just a few days in New York City reinforced the incredible power and influence that Neighborly has created. And for me it was both exciting and rewarding as we continue to help so many people Live R.I.C.H. by embracing our values for Respect, Integrity, Customer focus, and Having fun in the process. If the energy I experienced there is the kind of change you want to see in your own hometown, then a franchise opportunity with Neighborly might be just the answer.
