TWO TYPES OF FRANCHISING OPPORTUNITIES
JOIN THE MODERNO TEAM
In 2019 key forces came together to create Moderno Porcelain Works. By the third year of its existence, Moderno became the largest purchaser, fabricator and installer of large-format porcelain slabs in America. After successful expansions to 13 major American cities, Moderno is now enabling business owners and entrepreneurs to join the Moderno network through its unique franchising opportunity.
There are two types of Moderno franchise businesses: the Moderno Fabrication Franchise, and the Moderno Retail Franchise.
The Moderno Fabrication Franchise covers all aspects of the sale, measurement, warehousing, fabrication, and installation of porcelain projects. There is only one fabrication franchise in a city. A Moderno Fabrication Franchise typically involves a 15,000 to 25,000 square foot facility, which includes a showroom, office space, warehousing, and fabrication. For existing countertop fabricators, a Moderno Fabrication Franchise allows them to significantly expand their sales into vertical applications such as shower walls, fireplace and TV surrounds, staircases, as well as large format floors.
The Moderno Retail Franchise is a “satellite” operation of a fabrication facility and involves only the sale, measurement, and installation portion of the business. A Moderno Retail Franchise will consist mainly of a Moderno showroom, typically located in a high-traffic retail area, yet supported by a nearby fabrication facility (fabrication franchise or company-owned hub). The Moderno model includes two to four Retail Franchises in a major city, each with its specified territory. A Moderno Retail Franchise, in essence, allows a company to be in the porcelain business without having to invest in a large facility and equipment, focusing only on their customers.
- Moderno’s branding and national partnerships
- Unparalleled purchasing power
- Know-how, including machines, techniques, and software specific to a porcelain slab business
