Is Big Business!
Today more and more people are making
restoration a priority when they renovate
vintage homes! Preserving the dignity
and living comfort of the past can be
done simply and reliably when employing
the services of a Miracle Method
franchisee. In fact, the home-renovation
television show "This Old House"
featured a New England Miracle Method
franchisee and his restoration and refinishing
of a c.1919 bathtub as part of a show
about an Edwardian home. It should be
noted as well that in today's environmentally
conscious world some clients find it
more responsible to refinish old tubs
and plumbing fixtures than to dispose
of them. Refinishing that old tub, sink
or countertop can often be hundreds,
even thousands, of dollars cheaper than
replacing it once the labor cost is
included. Refinishing tubs and similar
items is a rapidly-growing industry
and one that you can be part of as a
Miracle Method franchisee.
Miracle Method started in 1979 when
a new method of refinishing plumbing
fixtures was developed. Prior to that
time it was necessary (when refinishing
a tub) to etch the surface of the
old finish using hydrofluoric acid,
a highly corrosive substance that
is dangerous to both the user and
the environment. Today the operation
still uses a proprietory bonding agent
and there are over 100 other franchises
What Do We Provide For You?
Method will establish a protected
territory for you as a franchisee.
As well they will provide extensive
training in the use and application
of Miracle Method products
and in how to operate and promote
your new business. Training is ongoing
through regional workshops, newsletters
and updates to already provided documentation.
Miracle Method will also supply
you with promotional materials including
print advertisements, radio and TV
ads, brochures and flyers. You will
be doing business under Miracle
Method's familiar name and logo
which will serve to increase your
customers confidence and you'll have
to Miracle Method's proprietary
bonding agent, coatings and processes.
Will This Cost Me?
Miracle Method will charge you
only $18,500 for your franchise including
a protected territory and all the items
noted in the previous section. Fifty percent
of this fee can be financed. Your actual
start-up costs will depend on many things
including where you operate your business,
how much in the way of hardware and business
supplies you elect to purchase (and how
much you have already) and how much initial
promotion you decide to do. We estimate,
however, that you can start your franchise
for as little as $15,750 (if the initial
fee is financed) out-of-pocket. Once your
franchise is operating you will be paying
a 5% royalty on your sales.
Much Will I Make?
Miracle Method can't make specific
promises but have found that single-truck
operations can make as much as 60% net
profit and multi-truck operations can
make up to 20% on gross sales up to $1,000,000
or more per year. Like any business, the
rewards are proportional to the effort
you put in!
Method solves a major problem
for many of their clients by helping
them keep the vintage look they love
without the ugliness and worn-out
appearance of old, well-used fixtures.
Miracle Method spares the expense
of purchasing new reproductions (available,
but at a cost!) and having them installed.
Because Miracle Method has
been in business for over a quarter
of a century, and franchised for almost
as long, they are a familiar name
to many potential clients. That is
why you'll find them high on almost
any list of available franchises.
You won't find them high in the listings
ranked by franchise fees, however,
for they are more affordable than
most. This means that a Miracle
Method franchise can be an unparalleled
opportunity for you the potential
