Franchise for Entrepreneurs Who Want a Meaningful Life in Business
Brand President discusses why entrepreneurs should invest in a meaningful business like Blue Kangaroo Packoutz
Blue Kangaroo Packoutz, one of the only national brands specializing in contents restoration, offers a clear path for entrepreneurs who want to provide an essential service to their communities.
Our contents restoration franchise exists to provide services that not only prevent homeowners from losing their possessions after they have been damaged, but to also restore those possessions to their pre-damaged state. By focusing on contents cleaning and restoration, Blue Kangaroo Packoutz is capitalizing on an underserved segment of the fast-growing restoration industry. As a result, franchise owners with our brand face less competition when growing their businesses.
In this interview, Tim Fagan, President of Blue Kangaroo Packoutz, opens up about why our brand is a best-bet investment, who makes the ideal franchise owner, and much, much more.
What makes Blue Kangaroo Packoutz stand out in the contents restoration industry?
Fagan: There’s not a lot of brands that specialize in contents restoration. At Blue Kangaroo Packoutz, we strongly believe that when you’re dealing with people’s contents, whether it’s in commercial or residential settings, it is a specialty. We believe that people who deal with people’s contents should be doing it every day.
What makes the training and support advantageous for new Blue Kangaroo Packoutz owners?
Fagan: Those who join our contents restoration brand benefit from being part of BELFOR Franchise Group, one of the nation’s leading franchisors in the home services and restoration industries. These benefits include unmatched brand recognition, access to jobs, and a successful track record of helping entrepreneurs excel in business. Last, but not least, we have developed one of the most comprehensive training and ongoing support platforms in the industry. Our training, which include hands-on technical training and professional development, is the best of the best. We even have regional coaches, who will work with owners once their doors are open, to help them meet their goals.
Do you agree that content restoration has become an increasingly important part of the overall restoration industry?
Fagan: Absolutely. The cost of insurance and claims continue to increase. If we can pack these contents — such as furniture, artwork, antiques, and more — as well as store, clean, and restore them back to their pre-damaged states at a cheaper price than what it would cost to replace it, that’s an unmatched value that the homeowner gets, especially with items that have sentimental value. For example, the only remaining picture from your grandparents’ wedding that is hung on the wall may have smoke damage and it is irreplaceable. Being able to prevent the loss of meaningful belongings brings great value to what we do for others. I often talk to new franchisees who join the network. I will ask them if they have the service gene and if they truly like helping others. This is a business where you can not only make money, but also help other people.
Who is the ideal Blue Kangaroo Packoutz franchise owner?
Fagan: They don’t necessarily have to have contents restoration experience. First, they have to be service-minded. Do you feel good about helping people in their worst hour? That’s important. You also have to have a good work ethic. Early on in your business, you’ll be out in the field, for example, lifting a bed out of the basement and bringing it upstairs with one of your team members. Thirdly, do you want to own a business and be able to grow it in a market that makes a difference whether the economy is good or bad? Our service is essential. We are certainly a recession-resistant business – so we’re not tied to the rest of the economy. There’s a lot of advantages in franchising with Blue Kangaroo Packoutz.
Why should an entrepreneur join Blue Kangaroo Packoutz over the typical restoration franchise?
Fagan: Blue Kangaroo Packoutz specializes in people’s contents. If you’re not sure about swinging a hammer and you don’t like drywall dust, this is the business for you. Also, when you’re researching business opportunities, you have to look to see if there is a need as well as money behind it. Both exist with Blue Kangaroo Packoutz because there is demand for our services. Again, it doesn’t matter what the state of the economy is – people still need our services. Now is the best time to invest.
