Looking to Avoid College Debt?

Back to School is all I see these days – ads in the newspaper, on television.  That means summer is over and schools will be back in session.   College is expensive and are you going to be able to find a job once you graduate?  Who is going to pay for the college debt?  You?  Your parents?  Have you thought of another career path?   Maybe a Screenmobile franchise would be right for you.    Here is an article that was published last year that may interest you.

Screenmobile Opens “Doors” for Young Entrepreneurs Looking to Avoid College Debt

Mobile Screening Franchise Offers Alternative Career Path with Hands-On Business Opportunity

With student debt mounting to a national average of $29,000 this year, young Americans are faced with considering alternatives to the high price of higher education. What many may not realize is that a college degree, while beneficial, isn’t a requirement to a successful business career. Screenmobile, the nation’s largest mobile screening franchise in the U.S., is offering franchise opportunities for those desiring a non-traditional path towards owning a business.

For nearly 35 years, Screenmobile has offered the highest quality installation services for window, porch, patio and retractable screens. By providing an unmatched convenience for its customers, the brand has become the most established mobile screening franchise in the country, growing to 91 locations in 25 states. While Screenmobile repairs, measures, manufactures and installs screens all in one day at the customer’s home or business, it’s what they offer their franchisees that has opened a unique window of opportunity.

“We want to change our franchisees’ lives, and we want to change their families’ lives. Just as in any type of skilled trade, the fruits of your labor are based on your efforts. Those that are motivated by hands-on work can enjoy a rewarding and profitable lifestyle with our company,” said Scott Walker, CEO of Screenmobile. “There’s an incredibly high demand for mobile screening services in regions all across the country. We take great pride in supporting our franchisees with a proven system so that they can establish their business and find success in this industry. Screenmobile is a business based on strong values and we want like-minded people to join our family.”

The father and sons team of Monty M., Monty L., and Scott D. Walker started Screenmobile in their Glendora, California family garage in 1980. Even Monty’s wife Sharleen helped get the business off the ground by answering calls and paying the company bills. The Walkers had a dream of creating the largest and best screening business the world has ever known and after 35 years of hard work, the company shows no signs of slowing down. To keep up with the high demands across the country, Screenmobile is looking to add 12 more franchisees to join the family by the end of this year.

While not limited to the following markets, Screenmobile is has its eye particularly on San Antonio, Houston, Lubbock, Waco, New Orleans, Columbus, Atlanta, Baltimore, Richmond, Myrtle Beach, Little Rock and Salt Lake City. Ideal franchise candidates are healthy for working outdoors, mechanically inclined, driven to grow a business, able to execute a business model and personable with customers. The total cost of investing in the Screenmobile franchise opportunity is $83,600-$119,200, which includes the franchise investment, exclusive territory rights, truck, trailer, inventory and all other items to launch the business.

“There’s been a consistently increasing demand for screen repair and installation in our area. Last year, we reached more than $350,000 is customer sales, and this year we’re on pace to top $500,000. As a young entrepreneur, it’s rare to have this kind of income, and the icing on the cake is that I get to earn it outdoors rather than behind a desk,” said Drew DeSantis, co-owner of Screenmobile in Orange County. “My partner Ryan O’Hare and I invested in our business when we were 28 years old. Screenmobile gave us the tools to guide our business in the right direction, and the network of other franchise owners have helped us grow even further.”

To support new franchisees, Screenmobile educates and provides all the necessary tools through an initial two-week training course known as Screenmobile University or S.M.U. Franchisees, or other employees of Screenmobile, can learn everything they need to know about running a business. Courses include basic business education, buying and selling products, customer communication and production, manufacturing and installation of screens. Follow up courses are also offered for existing franchisees through regional meetings, conventions, Go-To Meetings and personal visits from the corporate team.

It’s Hot, Hot, Hot!

It’s Hot, Hot, Hot!

Summer is here and the weather is HOT!  The hot summer means more air conditioning use to keep your home cooler.   Is there a product that can help reduce your electric costs?   Yes, solar screens –

Reduce your summer air conditioning bills with Screenmobile’s solar screens and sun control screen products. There is a variety of names for sun control screen products, such as solar screening, sunscreens, exterior shading, interior shading, outdoor shade screen, solar insect screens, roll down shades, roller shades and others.

Interior or Exterior

Sun control screens can be installed on the exterior or interior of a home or business. Sun control screens work by absorbing solar heat and dissipating it before it reaches windows and doors. They also provide protection from glare coming into a window. Interior sun control is usually in the form of a roll down application, there are motorized and remote control options for ease of use. Sun control screens can also come in large motorized or large format sun control screens for porches and patios.

Ecologically Friendly

Solar control screens are an ecologically friendly way to reduce your summer cooling costs? Solar screens from Screenmobile are the solution you’ve been searching for.

Stop Radiant Heat Gain

Sun control screens are able to reduce your air conditioning costs as well as preserve the colors of your curtains and upholstery because they are specially designed to eliminate up to 90% of the sun rays from entering your home. During the summer months, much of the heat that infiltrates your home comes from your windows. Jack Haenichen, Senior Technical Adviser for the Commerce Department’s Energy Office, states that “40 percent of a house’s heat is a result of its window space and approximately 50 percent of a utility bill can be attributed to them.”

Do Mosquitoes love you like they love me?

Do Mosquitoes love you like they love me?

Button - Mosquitos Love Me

Mosquitoes Love Me

I do not know why, but mosquitoes just love me – they always have.  They will leave my friends alone, but they will find and bite me like crazy.  Is it my blood type?   “Mosquitoes do exhibit blood-sucking preferences, say the experts. “One in 10 people are highly attractive to mosquitoes,” reports Jerry Butler, PhD, professor emeritus at the University of Florida. But it’s not dinner they’re sucking out of you. Female mosquitoes — males do not bite people — need human blood to develop fertile eggs. And apparently, not just anyone’s will do.”

Last evening, I took out my trash.   It was a quick, brisk walk to my trash dumpster down the walkway, back by the garages and back into my condo.

Within three minutes of being inside my home, I was scratching like mad.   Three lovely mosquito bites.   I was barely outside for two minutes.   No, I did not put on an insect repellent, as I was taking out the trash, not going for a hike in the woods as dusk.  I had to get out the calamine lotion.

Then all night, I kept waking up wondering if the mosquito that got me was a Zika mosquito.  Nice –

I do not think it was a Zika mosquito, but you honestly do not know these days.

The Zika threat continues to grow by the day.  I posted back in April about the CDC and their concerns.  You can read that blog here:   http://franchise.screenmobile.com/what-can-you-do-to-prevent-zika-virus/

Although the virus is contained to South America, it is probable that mosquitoes will eventually make it into the North American continent.  Besides using insect repellent, you can also ensure protection for you and your family by making sure you have properly fitted door and window screens.  Screens need to have a tight mesh to ensure mosquitoes and bugs cannot get through.

Screenmobile can help with your door and window screens.   Check here for a location near you.
