  • What experience do I need to become an Honest Abe Roofing franchise owner?
    Prior business operations or staff management experience is a plus, as is honesty, a passion for customer service, and being detail-oriented. Direct experience in a roofing, construction or similar business, especially in a sales role, is helpful but not required to open your own Honest Abe Roofing franchise. Current roofing contractors may, however, be considered as possible franchise candidates. No matter your background or experience, we’ll provide you the tools, training, and products you need to open a construction business and confidently sell roofing and other related services to your growing customer base.
  • What is provided as part of the Honest Abe Roofing program?
    We will provide a pre-opening training program for franchisees and/or their designated managers at a corporate location. This program will last up to ten days, covering sales, customer service, recruiting and training new staff and subcontractors, using AbeConnect business software, scheduling, installation, repairs, networking, marketing, reporting requirements and more. In addition, we will present franchisees with a copy of our confidential operations manual to help run the business properly on a day-to-day basis. See www.
