, with a nearly 30-year success record in home staging, has reached new milestones for growth following a strong first half of 2015.
Following an impressive 26 percent year-over-year increase in April, Showhomes’ momentum continued through May and June as the brand ended Q2 with a 41 percent increase in total revenues for the month—the strongest showing in company history.
“We are reaching heights never seen before in history thanks to our new revenue streams and passionate franchisees,” Showhomes
COO Matt Kelton said. “We started out the year strong and I look forward to keeping this momentum going through the end of 2015.”
The brand's successful second quarter is highlighted by a 29 percent increase in total revenue year-to-date. The Q2 growth follows an equally positive Q1, where the national franchise reported a 28 percent increase in year-over-year revenue. With eyes on the opening of its 100th location by the close of the year, Showhomes is now focused on expanding in top growth markets that include Southern California, the Pacific Northwest and the Northeastern portion of the U.S.
“With a combination of a low-cost investment and a business model boasting multiple revenue streams, I’m confident in our brand’s ability to continue expanding in number of units and in revenue,” Kelton said. “Moving forward, we will focus our expansion plans in areas with strong availability and continue to add talented business owners to our wildly successful and growing concept.”
Showhomes, one of Franchise Business Review’s top 50 low-cost franchise opportunities in the U.S. in 2014, remains a national leader in the home staging industry. However, the brand is also focused on growing new revenue streams through unique offerings, such as its home updating business, which helps clients renovate their homes prior to putting them on the market. Combined with Showhomes’ unique home manager program, the brand is poised for an even stronger close to 2015 and even more robust growth in the years to come.
