Fastest-growing wood refinishing franchise announces first franchise signing in the Old Line State, with many more on the horizon
N-Hance is midway through a banner year. In 2018, the fastest-growing wood refinishing franchise celebrated the opening of its 500th location, was named as the top franchise in category by Entrepreneur magazine, and announced a goal to award 80 franchise locations by the end of 2018. Now, N-Hance has even more to celebrate — its first franchise in Maryland.
The new franchise will debut in the state with operations in two territories in Baltimore County — Towson and Catonsville. Franchise owner John Dearing will lead sales and business efforts, and Tim Slattery will spearhead operations. Dearing spent more than 25 years in the corporate world before he decided to pursue entrepreneurship for more freedom and flexibility, and the opportunity to impact his community. He could not be more excited to debut N-Hance’s services to his hometown.
“Maryland overall is truly an untapped market for the home improvement industry. There are so many homeowners throughout the state looking to have their cabinets and hardwood floors professionally refinished for a refreshed, updated look,” Dearing says. “We’re excited to join a nationally recognized brand name like N-Hance Wood Refinishing and become a staple in the area. We’re partnered with seven Home Depots throughout the area and are already receiving requests for multiple projects. We have been well-received in Baltimore County, and we look forward to expanding to additional territories in the near future.”
N-Hance has sights set on continued growth, and the growth in Maryland is expected to continue well into the future. There are plans to add 15 new locations to the market over the next five years. N-Hance is targeting markets throughout Maryland, including the cities of Baltimore, Gaithersburg, Frederick, Bethesda, Bowie, Bel Air, Hagerstown and Ocean City — plus Washington, D.C.
“Our continued research and development has led us to introducing numerous new products and services every year, which has strengthened our franchise model and helped us attract new franchisees,” says D’Wayne Tanner, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “Maryland is the perfect market for our continued expansion; it has added jobs at a rate that outpaced all but six states. Businesses there are growing, and consumer confidence is high. We are seeking entrepreneurs throughout the state who will make successful franchise partners and help our great company continue a high level of growth.”
