Franchise Direct, a strategic partner of mine, has just released their 2011 Home Improvement Report. Jim Hunter of House Doctors helped put this comprehensive franchise business report together, and it’s chock full of  industry facts and trends.

And become the ringer of the register. Your cash register.
