If you’re like I was, you are finding the lighting business closing in on you. The market is getting smaller, profits tougher to find and more people are fighting over scraps than ever before.
I guess I saw the writing in time and found a way to diversify by growing what has become LED Source. We are very fortunate to be leading the charge on energy efficient LED retrofits in all sorts of commercial applications. These aren’t the architectural or entertainment projects you may have been involved in for many years, but very straight forward replacement LED systems in retail, hospitality, warehouses, parking garages, office buildings, etc.
We’ve created a system that appears to be quite easy, but in reality, it just seems that way because we’ve taken the time to do it right. We’ve tied in with the top manufacturers in the world and we’ve developed training, people and tools to get the job done.
And now, by way of a very affordable and fair franchise model, we are making these tools available to not just entrepreneurs in the business world, but also our friends in the lighting industry. In fact, several of our existing and incoming franchisees are from lighting, electrical distribution and construction markets. We’ve even had some of our suppliers inquire about local or regional franchise opportunities.
We started our franchise model about two years ago, but were able to begin officially offering franchises one year ago. In that time, we’ve managed to sell more than 25 locations including a few larger area development territories. we are still processing new franchisees as well, and plan to add at least 6 or 8 locations by the end of the year.
At the same time, there are still several key markets including NY, CA, IL, WA, PA, GA, and western Canada’s hottest market, Vancouver BC. That means it’s not too late for early adopters to get in and make an impact in what is reported to become an $8 billion market within a few short years.
If you’re interested, the first steps are easy.
1) go to LED Source Application and download, then complete and email the application.
2) call me if you need to discuss the opportunity or simply have questions.
3) once your application and territory have been approved, we will send you our franchise disclosure documents (FDD). This document tells you everything you need to know about the opportunity and basically covers the small print.
4) as little as 14 days later, we can close a deal and get you on your way to training, and getting your LED Source location up and running.
While the FTC doesn’t allow us to discuss potential earnings, we can certainly talk with you concerning the opportunity and the industry you’ll serve. Also, as part of the process you will be able to talk with our existing franchisees about their experieces thus far.
In the end, we are confident you’ll understand the depth of this opportunity. Sure, maybe it’s not for everyone but if you’re at a dead end, or just looking for a new adventure in a market that’s not saturated, and early enough to make a difference, then maybe we are right for each other. Go ahead, apply!!
