We are committed to helping people start amazing home-based franchise businesses
Home Based Franchise Group, franchisors of Dryer Vent Squad, Frost Shades Window Tinting, and Clozetivity is the culmination of the life work of two seasoned franchise industry pros: Leo Goldberger and Curt Swanson. Both have major success in the franchise industry, growing franchise systems, helping franchisors, and working with thousands of individual franchise owners to grow and become prosperous.
We believe franchise ownership is the best way for you to participate in the economy at your full market value. When you have a job, you abdicate what happens to you to someone else and you become trapped in someone else’s plan. We believe in helping people start and grow amazing low-cost franchises that give you the flexibility to achieve your dreams.
We think there’s a problem in the franchise industry when the average franchise opportunity is priced too high and is too far out of reach for the vast majority of potential franchise owners. Anyone should be able to start a business. For someone who hasn’t been a business owner, there needs to be an entry-level business to start and grow. Our main goal is to bring an entirely new generation of franchise owners into franchising affordably and grow the size of the franchise industry as a result.
Meet our Team
Leo Goldberger – Founder and CEO
Leo is well known for starting Inspection Boys and The Patch Boys prior to starting Home Based Franchise Group. He has helped hundreds of franchise owners prosper and grow entry-level businesses into successful enterprises. “I love niche businesses that focus on providing a service that everyone needs,” Leo says. “I don’t want a business that does 100 different things. It’s far easier to master a simple business, and the consumer has far more trust in a business that specializes in one thing. With Home Based Franchise Group, these are businesses that don’t cost very much to get started, and it doesn’t cost much to continue to operate and grow. There’s very little overhead, which is the most common reason why people go out of business. With our franchises, you can own a simple business and scale it up to be incredibly successful.”
