Wilmington Home Builder Signs With Epcon Franchising

Experienced home builder seeking streamlined business model

COLUMBUS, Ohio (May 24, 2024) – Our fifth Franchise Home Builder to join the Epcon network in 2024 is Southern State Homes LLC of Wilmington, North Carolina.

Led by father-son duo, Richard and Greg Wallace, Southern State Homes has been building custom homes along the North Carolina coast for 15 years. Richard’s introduction to Epcon Communities came through a positive experience his father-in-law had when purchasing an Epcon home in Raleigh. Seeking to move away from a spec-heavy business model and the uncertainties of relying on outside developers for home sites, Richard and Greg found Epcon Franchising to be the perfect next step for their home building business.

“They are very excited to revolutionize their building company by focusing on our pre-sale business model and taking control of their future by developing their own communities,” says Paul Hanson, president of Epcon Franchising.
