FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How long has Screenmobile been in operation?
Screenmobile began operating in 1980 when the Walker family, a father and his two sons, built the first Screenmobile out of a used tent trailer. Their goal was to establish the world’s largest screen repair business, built on the principles of honesty, integrity and pride in their work. Screenmobile became an instant success, and during the second year an additional operation was in full swing.
By 1984, the demand had become so great that the founders established The Screenmobile Corporation and began selling franchises. Today, the company has been established as the leader in the screening business, and continues to grow to new territories across the United States.
How many open franchise units are there?
Screenmobile has nearly 100 franchises open at this time. With the right fit, we will continue to grow and expand to additional territories across the U.S.
The home improvement industry is a multi-billion dollar per year economic powerhouse. Whether renovating or new construction, the demand for a mobile screening company is everywhere. For the past year, home improvement costs have been on pace to set record highs.
