Complete the Franchise Information Request Form

Learn more about the opportunities Epcon offers its Franchise Home Builders by filling out our interest form. After submitting your request, you’ll be able to schedule time to talk with our Business Development team to learn more and have your questions answered.

After submitting your request, our Business Development Specialist will contact you to schedule a brief call. During that call, you’ll be able to ask questions and we’ll learn more about you. Together, we’ll begin to determine if there’s mutual interest in working together based on your experience, goals and market area(s) of interest. If there is, you will then connect with our Business Development Director for more in-depth discussions.

After your initial discussions with the Business Development team are complete, you will receive a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document. This document discusses our construction franchise agreement in plain English. As you review it, we encourage you to consult with an attorney experienced in franchise law. This document includes a full list of our current builders, and we encourage you to take the time to connect and speak with several of these franchise owners to get a full, well-rounded view of what being an Epcon Franchise Home Builder would be like for you.

Now that you understand the way we franchise and feel you have a great opportunity to develop an Epcon Communities neighborhood in your market, it’s time to get really serious. So, the next step is to formally apply for consideration as an Epcon Franchise Home Builder. This application is not a contract, and does not lock you in to anything long-term. It simply asks for detailed information about you, your financial background and your business plans to allow us to determine if you meet our qualifications.

During a Discovery Day at our headquarters in Central Ohio, you’ll have the chance to meet with our comprehensive support team. You’ll learn even more about the real estate development services we provide our home builders. Most importantly, you’ll visit several nearby Epcon Communities neighborhoods to experience for yourself how remarkable they are. This will give you an opportunity to make a final decision as to whether we are the right solution for your business growth goals.

Once your application has been approved, we will prepare a franchise agreement for your review and execution. This agreement will give you an area of exclusivity in your market as you work towards identifying a first project location. Once you sign the agreement, you are ready to get underway. You will have immediate access to our proven home building business blueprint, training and systems, to get you on your way to developing remarkable homes and neighborhoods.
