How Does Epcon Franchising Support Its Owners?
Epcon homebuilding franchise provides training in sales, marketing, construction, legal and finance issues to help franchisees build their business
When you join a franchise, it’s important to know exactly what you’ll get in exchange for those royalty payments. After all, entrepreneurs join a franchise system because it gives them the support they need to build a business.
Epcon Franchising offers extensive support to our home building franchise owners, helping them get started, grow and grab market share.
“The retirement of Baby Boomers and the aging U.S. population creates long-term demand for Epcon’s homes and communities, and you better believe we’re going to help our Franchise Builders grab that market share,” CEO and Director Ed Bacome says.
Epcon Communities Franchising Inc. is one of America’s largest home builders (“2013 Builder 100,” Builder Magazine, May 2014), and it is one of the only home building franchise companies that exists. Epcon and its Franchise Builders develop communities of ranch-style, maintenance-free homes that are popular with 55+ buyers — a demographic that is projected to drive new home sales in the United States for many years to come.
As an Epcon Communities builder, you will receive training throughout the life of your business. It starts with intensive training at the beginning, and it proceeds with programs that cover all aspects of the Epcon system, including sales, marketing, construction and finance. Training workshops are held throughout the year for you and your staff.
Your sales staff will be trained by nationally recognized experts in new home sales. Your Epcon Sales Center can be equipped with the latest technology to help you close sales, including customizable marketing materials and a sales center presentation gallery. We offer virtual tour software that allows potential buyers to see what an Epcon community feels like before you have even built your first home.
“I wanted to take advantage of Epcon’s expertise in this particular market,” says Indianapolis Franchise Builder Terry Neer. “They do the architectural research. They build the homes to make sure that they work and that they work well. Then they release those home plans to us along with all of the marketing materials, the websites, the advertising, all of that stuff put together. We build communities that offer an experience that you cannot get from any other builder. They don’t just offer you a design and say, ‘Go build somewhere.’ It is a total package.”
