ABC Inc Franchise
ABC Inc. is a franchise for a seamless siding company. It was founded in 1973 by Gerald Beyers and they started franchising in 1978.
They were just a general remodeler when they started but now, they have expanded their services. Their headquarters are based in Fargo, North Dakota. As of year 2010, they have 108 franchisees and 9 locations that are company owned. They say that their products are eco-friendly. They use steel and the production of steel does not include any usage of valuable minerals and no forests are touched. Their Duck-Matte Color Collection is their way of luring away from plastics and vinyl coatings. Steel lasts longer than vinyl which therefore means that there’s less maintenance and less pollutants caused by other products.
What services do ABC Inc offer?
They do seamless steel sidings. Other ABC Inc products would have to be overlapped in every 12 feet and it is visible pattern of splices. One home would contain about 130 splices that don’t look very pleasing. They custom cut the sidings to your home and that eliminates all the unsightly overlaps. They have a machine that forms the panels and the colors on site for you to choose. This is why they have the slogan “The Siding Without the QUACKS!”. Another option is the seamless log siding. This is their alternative from having to use real logs. They make it easy for the homeowners because the sidings are applied over the existing interior which means that there’s no need for the homeowners to leave their home during the process. ABC Inc also install energy efficient replacement windows. They say that it’s energy efficient because it’s triple glazed, maintenance free, noise reducing, easy to clean, and custom-fitted.
