Who We Are
A Top 50 U.S. Home Builder You Can Trust
Epcon is one of the largest U.S. builders of single-family lifestyle communities that appeal to the 55+ buyer. Our homebuilding franchise helps home builders quickly enter or scale their business in the 55+ homebuilding market.
Our Franchise Builders receive access to our proven blueprint that has made us a U.S. top 50 home builder year-after-year. This helps them accelerate their growth and market their homes effectively.
Epcon got its start by co-founders Ed Bacome and Phil Frankhauser who believe that great home design can improve the lives of the homeowner. Because of this, Epcon’s home designs are market-researched and field-tested to appeal to our core buyer. We work with architects nationwide to develop floor plans with amenities like open entertainment space, outdoor living, and property management — all aspects that appeal to the 55+ homebuyer.
How Epcon helps builders
Epcon Franchise Builders have access to a complete blueprint of plans, tools and processes to help accelerate sales, scale their business and gain a competitive edge over national builders in the 55+ market.
We help our Franchise Builders by:
- Teaching the core strategies and processes for homebuilding, which enables builders to develop entire communities.
- Making marketing tools available that enable them to sell their homes quickly and effectively.
- Providing access to industry leaders and the insider knowledge of a national builder. We share our knowledge with Franchise Builders to help them measure costs and maintain margins.
We know that it is important to the builder to build quickly and sell homes fast. That’s why our plans allow you to build a home in as little as 110 days. With full access to our proven blueprint and sophisticated marketing materials you can scale faster and maximize your ROI.
A Nationwide Network
Becoming an Epcon Franchise Builder not only gives you access to our expert team, proven plans, systems and processes, it also allows you to tap into a network of builders across the United States. Epcon builders share ideas and strategies that have helped their business grow and share them with each other. One Franchise Builder from Milwaukee, John Wahlen, says that company support makes a big difference. He states “One of the biggest things is the intranet. I can talk to other owners of franchises. Our sales team can link into things that are happening around the country that are successful.”
