2019-05-15T14:58:51-04:00May 15th, 2019|Tags: , , , |

LAKEWOOD, NJ – The Patch Boys, America’s FIRST AND MOST TRUSTED drywall repair franchise company, has awarded EIGHT new locations in the last two weeks, including territories in Idaho, Nevada, North Carolina and New York.

A completely mobile business, The Patch Boys provides homeowners, landlords, property managers and business owners with a highly-focused wall patching service. These are jobs that are usually too small for most contractors and beyond the average homeowner’s skill set.

“The growth we’re experiencing, coupled with the quality of investors we’re attracting, is a great testimonial to our niche business,” said Leo Goldberger, Founder and CEO. “We offer a unique, in-demand service to the consumer, and a low-cost, high-margin opportunity for investors,” continued Goldberger.

In addition to working with homeowners, landlords and property management companies, The Patch Boys also provides services directly to general contractors, roofers, electricians, plumbers, HVAC companies and other trade professionals who want to add-on drywall repair services to their customers, but don’t have the staff or expertise to do it themselves. The Patch Boy’s simple business model and proprietary computer technology allows franchise owners the luxury of operating the business from the comfort of their own homes, and around their own schedules.

“Not only are we America’s FIRST AND MOST TRUSTED drywall repair franchise company, but we’re also one of the fastest-growing, home-based concepts out there,” said Curt Swanson, COO and VP of Operations. “Even more importantly, we have seen a spike in female ownership over the past couple of months, which further demonstrates and validates the hard work our staff has put in to promote the concept and the mind-boggling growth we have experienced,” continued Swanson.

With the 80+ current locations, The Patch Boys is dedicated to continually innovating and improving.

About The Patch Boys

Founded in 2008 by entrepreneur Leo Goldberger, The Patch Boys has become the go-to resource for a reliable and efficient drywall repair. Recognizing that most general contractors and other trade industry professionals lack the time and resources to repair drywall damage caused by their services and other unforeseen forces, The Patch Boys gets their properties back to normal as quickly as possible. Franchising since 2015, this rapidly growing company has more than 70 locations across the country. The Patch Boys had become a popular investment opportunity for its low price of entry, high margins, and simple, home-based model.
