As Miracle Method continues to build strong momentum in 2017 with the goal of executing 12 franchise agreements in the next 12 months, the brand recently announced the addition of industry veteran Gwyn O’Kane as VP of Franchise Development.
The New Zealand native recently joined the team after spending 20 years of his career in the franchise space, primarily in development roles. Most recently, O’Kane held a business development position at RYCO, before which he was the VP of Franchise development at PIRTEK for more than a decade.
“I found a professional passion in the franchise world where I could support others in achieving the dream of owning their own business and becoming successful entrepreneurs,” O’Kane said.
In his new role with the nation’s largest professional bathroom and kitchen refinishing franchise, O’Kane plans to bring his history and years of industry experience to work with people who want to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves.
When introduced to the Miracle Method concept, O’Kane was blown away by what the brand offers to customers as well as its franchisees.
“One of the things that struck me most as I was exploring Miracle Method was that we are really more of a marketing business that happens to do refinishing,” he said. “To find a franchise opportunity where a new owner comes in and the phone is already ringing with new client requests is incredible.”
Backed by an expert marketing team, Miracle Method fosters business for new franchisees by fielding incoming estimates and service requests during the training period and ensuring that the new business owners launch operations with a custom ad plan for their local market to drive a steady flow of customers.
Through the strong support system that the leading refinishing brand provides its existing and new franchisees, as well as the relatively low-cost investment level offered, O’Kane is motivated to tap into the potential of new markets, where the brand can begin meeting refinishing needs of future residential and commercial clients as well as growing the presence in existing markets.
Throughout the second half of 2017, the brand will focus on growth trajectory in key development markets like Nevada, Florida, California, Nebraska, Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Illinois. O’Kane and his team will continue to look for operators who have strong business backgrounds and motivation to provide the service in their local communities.
“We’re proud of the accomplishments of our brand so far this year and know that adding Gwyn to our team will provide additional leadership and strategy needed to grow our franchise program,” said Miracle Method CEO Chuck Pistor. “We’re eager to bring the excellent service we provide to new markets across the U.S. through strong franchisee partnerships as well as build upon our success in markets where we already have a strong presence.”
