Why Home Services

You Might be Wondering, “Why Home Services? What’s so Special About This Industry?”

Sure, home services may not sound like an exciting new concept, but that’s the point. This isn’t a fad or a trend – this is an established (and booming!) industry that has been around for decades, and will be around for decades more. An industry that’s worth over $300 billion annually, and growing.

As the world has changed, many businesses have downsized or even closed. But unlike other industries affected by the current global climate, home services are exploding with opportunity, as people invest in their homes more than ever!


Home Services:
a Booming Industry

  • Home Services Market is projected to reach 2,247.84 Billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of 29.90% from 2021 to 2028. (Verified Market Research)
  • Home renovation spend has grown 15% in the last year (2021 U.S. Houzz & Home Study: Renovation Trends)
  • Nearly seven in eight homeowners hired professional help for their renovations in 2020 (87 percent) (2021 U.S. Houzz & Home Study: Renovation Trends)

Why We Chose Home Services

  • Someone’s home is their most valued asset, something they invest in throughout their life
  • People are spending more time at home and more money on their homes
  • The bar for customer experience is extremely low
  • Competition is highly fragmented: no one painting business currently dominates the market, for example
  • Customers will pay a premium for a national brand they trust
  • Home Services is an industry that needed reinvention…and we took on the job!

What Sets Us Apart

When Brian Scudamore, our founder and CEO started 1-800-GOT-JUNK? In 1989, he saw an opportunity to take on a fragmented space with no market leader, and create a household name. Now our brands 1-800-GOT-JUNK?, WOW 1 DAY PAINTING, and Shack Shine are known for building the most innovative, customer-centric experience in the market. Why? Because our brands put the customer at the heart of everything we do. We know that happy customers = happy business owners, and our model is designed to keep people coming back again, and again, and again. That’s a unique value proposition in the home services industry, and it’s the not-so-secret secret to our success.

I knew I wanted to be in the home services industry, but that starting alone would be very difficult. I realized I needed help if I wanted to grow and scale a business, and a franchise model would enable me to do that.
