Mighty Dog Roofing, a roof repair and replacement franchise, has achieved a milestone of 100 franchise territories awarded—all within the first six months since launching development in 2021 by Horse Power Brands, an owner and operator of service-based franchise systems. The company says it will continue to build infrastructure to support new franchisees as the growth spurt is expected to continue throughout the year.
As of July 2021, Mighty Dog Roofing more than doubled its footprint and officially awarded 100 territories to 31 franchisees across 15 states. Of those, 90 are expected to be up and running before the end of the year, with the remainder scheduled to open in Q1 2022.
The services industry has seen significant spikes in demand, due in large part to consumers spending more time at home during the pandemic and finally getting around to needed repairs and upgrades. This, coupled with the deteriorating roofs built during the housing boom of the early 2000s, is creating a particular surge in the roofing industry. That's why partners Josh Skolnick and Zachery Beutler–both serial entrepreneurs who have grown successful franchises of their own–saw it as an opportune time to form a company focused on the service-based franchise sector. Their goal with Horse Power Brands is to sell franchises responsibly, as well as open them with the tools to ensure the franchisees' growth and longevity.
"We knew it was the perfect time to acquire a roofing business due to the ongoing demand and need for the service, and we were right," said Skolnick, who serves as CEO of Mighty Dog Roofing. "Not only has there been immense consumer demand, but we're also seeing interest from prospective franchisees who already own other types of home improvement businesses looking to diversify their portfolios, as well as from people seeking entry into the booming industry."
Over the next year, Mighty Dog Roofing will actively seek qualified franchise partners to grow in markets such as Cleveland, Denver, Indianapolis, Minneapolis, Oklahoma City, Omaha, Raleigh and San Antonio.
"We're looking forward to the future with Mighty Dog Roofing, as well as adding more service brands to the Horse Power Brands, portfolio," Beutler said. "Regardless of what is happening with the economy, services will always be needed across the country."
