Neighborly plans to introduce national industry leader Mr. Appliance to the broader Kansas City area. The brand is actively seeking both multi- and single-unit development agreements across the market in territories spanning both Kansas and Missouri with the goal of opening four new Mr. Appliance locations by the middle of 2023, effectively bringing Neighborly’s Kansas City presence to 15 brands in the area with more than 40 franchises serving the local community.
“Fewer homeowners are choosing to put their homes on the market as interest rates climb, but with more people choosing to improve their current homes rather than sell, Mr. Appliance is expanding its footprint in Kansas City at an opportune time,” said Brad Stevenson, chief development officer of Neighborly.
“Potential franchise owners will be joining an established network of brands in a market where Neighborly has an established history of success because even as the housing market in Kansas City evolves, homeowners continue looking to our trusted brands for their home service needs. The entrepreneurs we partner with to bring Mr. Appliance to this market will play a critical role in taking the Neighborly Hub for Home Services for Kansas City homeowners to a whole new level.”
Kansas City and its surrounding areas are ripe with growth as the population and infrastructure continue to climb year after year, with flexibility for franchise owners to design prime Kansas City territories open to Mr. Appliance franchise development.
“The addition of a quality appliance repair company like Mr. Appliance will complement our business and be a wonderful addition to the family of Neighborly brands here in Kansas City,” said Mark Farmer, owner of Mr. Electric of Paola, Overland Park and Lee’s Summit. “As a Neighborly company, if there is a service Mr. Electric doesn’t offer, we want to be able to recommend other quality companies to our customers, and Neighborly’s Done Right Promise ensures that each brand is held to the highest standard.”
