Surge in New York Home Improvement Spending Draws Franchise Brand to the Market

NEW YORK — N-Hance Wood Refinishing, the leading nationwide franchise specializing in hardwood floor and kitchen cabinet refinishing, has announced plans to add four new territories to New York state, secured through strategic partnerships, by year’s end. This 2019 expansion is folded into the brand’s overarching goal to add more than 20 locations throughout the state over the next five years.

Kickstarting these aggressive development goals are newly signed agreements in Nassau County and Suffolk County. Entrepreneurs Michael and Carole Gangadeen will debut N-Hance’s services throughout Floral Park, New Cassel, Plain View, Elmont, Uniondale, and Rockville Centre areas. Additionally, new franchise owner, Andrew Saulino will service the Melville, Amityville, Brentwood, Brightwaters, Bayport, Calverton, Blue Point and Tiana areas. Finally, John Polkwoski will launch the N-Hance brand in markets including Binghamton, Ithaca, Cortland, and Oxford, in central New York.  These three new groups will build on the momentum N-Hance has already paved with 21 franchise locations currently operating throughout the state. To meet the rising demand in the market, N-Hance is actively seeking franchise partners in the cities of Binghamton, Albany, Long Island, Bronx, Manhattan, and Syracuse.

As of June 2018, New York comes in at third of highest home improvement spending states, 11.6 billion dollars, just behind California and Texas. The surge in home improvement spending is spearheading N-Hance’s efforts to continue growth in the already successful New York area. “The area, economically, is ripe for a concept like N-Hance with our array of offerings for wood refinishing and renewal,” said D’Wayne Tanner, Senior Vice President of Franchise Sales. “We’ve had resounding successes introducing franchises in this eager market and look forward to continuing this legacy as we create innumerable opportunities for entrepreneurs statewide.”

Trevor Kaftan, Owner of an N-Hance location in the Poughkeepsie area, who was also N-Hance’s 2018 Franchisee of the Year, joined the franchise system in 2012 after being attracted to the company for its market opportunity, “I had been selling refacing and kitchen remodeling services on my own for three years, and I kept getting pushback from customers. When I found out about N-Hance and what they offered to consumers, I knew there would be a market for the services that N-Hance provides.”

N-Hance sets the industry standard for hardwood refinishing.  Supported by Harris Research, Inc., N-Hance is the only wood refinishing company, working with more than 1,200 Home Depot locations across the nation. Also helping lead the company’s growth is its one of a kind “Lightspeed® instant curing system” for hardwood cabinets and floors which saves customers time and money over the traditional refinishing, refacing or replacing alternatives. The innovative process provides one day hardwood refinishing without the hassle of dust, mess or odor.
