Archadeck Outdoor Living is a proven business with a 40-plus year track record and nearly $1 billion in projects completed. Our team and our franchisees have fine-tuned the business model so you can quickly deploy it in your market and dramatically reduce your risk compared to doing it on your own.
The challenge lies in finding the right franchise business opportunity – one that is a natural fit for your values, areas of interest, and skill set. That’s what also makes the Archadeck opportunity such a logical choice for professionals looking to expand into the growing outdoor living category.
Focused On Your Bottom Line
One of the key benefits to our Archadeck franchisees is the ability to leverage the best practices from across our hardscaping franchise system to improve the profitability and efficiency of your local operations. You’ll be able to compare the financial performance of your office to that of your peers within Archadeck, and our franchise support team will help you target specific areas for operational improvements.
A recent Bain and Company survey indicates that 84% of U.S. businesses use some form of comparative benchmarking data to help manage their operations and it is widely viewed as an accepted “best practice.”
That is why all Archadeck offices participate in our annual financial benchmarking program. This detailed report provides comparative benchmarking data to help you measure the financial performance of your outdoor design franchise in the following categories:
- Gross profit and net profit margins
- Expense management (cost of materials, labor and overhead)
- Owner compensation and business profitability
- Employee productivity
- Asset productivity (effective use of cash)
The idea is for our franchise owners and franchise support team to use the information as a tool to assist our franchisees in setting goals and priorities for their businesses and improving bottom line results. The data is also extremely valuable in providing parameters for creating annual budgets, making long-term business plans and providing information to raise capital through banking relationships. The data can also help justify a future selling price should you someday decide to sell your business.
