The Great Resignation: Opening New Doors for Franchisees

26 Dec, 2021
No industry has been spared from changes during Covid-19. It has disrupted our lives (and jobs) in so many ways. One of the unexpected changes to come from this has been a shift in the workforce. Simply put, people are quitting their jobs in droves. It’s a phenomenon coined as “The Great Resignation.”

What does that mean for franchises like About Face Cabinetry?

It is an excellent time to be recruiting new investors!

Why Workers are Quitting

Millions of people don’t want to be an employee anymore. Now, they are ready to become their own boss. Even those already settled in the home improvement, remodeling, and construction space are looking for new opportunities.

Workers are tired of:
  • Low pay 
  • Poor work-life balance
  • Unpleasant office environments 
  • Inflexible schedules 
  • Burnout 
  • No opportunities for advancement 
  • Etc.
Are you ready to join the changing labor force? 

If any of this sounds familiar, it may be time to seriously weigh the pros and cons of franchising with About Face Cabinetry. 

Advantages of Saying “Goodbye” to the Office 

There are plenty of great things about working a regular 9-5 office job. 

You get to see the same coworkers every day. Hours of business are somewhat predictable. Each week is relatively the same, with the security of knowing where your paycheck comes from and when it will be deposited.

More Freedom

But being locked into a job such as this comes with its fair share of negatives, too. For example, think about freedom. Flexible working hours? Unlikely. The choice to take vacation during the months that work best for your family? Forget it. Incentives to go above and beyond to deliver outstanding work? Minimal.

Higher Earning Potential

In addition, even those who are paid on commission or get tips can only work so many hours per week. Profits are limited. Once you hit that earnings ceiling, it becomes nearly impossible to break through into the next level of profitability. 

Opportunities for Growth

Typically, to move up in an organization, employees first need to obtain expensive degrees or complete additional training programs. These can be costly, take a long time to finish, and after all that are still no guarantee of landing a mid to high-income salary.  

No wonder so many people are leaving!

What About Face Cabinetry Offers Instead?
