Home Improvement Franchise Opportunities

On average, homeowners spend more than $7,500 per year on home improvement projects in the United States.  This includes upgrades made in and outside of homes.  More and more homeowners are seeing the importance of increasing the safety, security, and aesthetic appeal of their property.  That’s why there has never been a better time to consider a home improvement franchise with Superior Fence & Rail.

Why Superior Fence & Rail is the Best Outdoor Franchise

The home services industry is ripe for the picking.  Outdoor franchise opportunities are excellent choices for owning your own business.  The difference in owning a fence franchise and other businesses, like a pool franchise or landscaping franchise, is that fences are often a required upgrade.  While pool or landscaping installations are popular outdoor home improvements, they are luxury investments.  As a Superior Fence & Rail franchise owner, you are ensured a great portion of your clientele will be investing in needed home improvements.  A down economy could potentially put a pool franchise or landscaping franchise out of business.  Superior Fence & Rail franchise owners have experienced not only sustainable but increased income in negative economic conditions.  Whether replacing a worn-down fence, or building all-new, fences are important for home security, as well as the safety of our families.  The bonus is that Superior Fence & Rail fences are beautiful, which will reward homeowners with the sense of pride that more frivolous home improvements might provide.

About Us

In 2001, our founder, who had no previous background in fencing or construction, brought a fresh perspective to the fence industry when he purchased a small vinyl fence company near Orlando, Florida. After significant growth in its first year, it was clear to him that being a fence contractor represented a fantastic business opportunity. Over the next several years, Superior Fence & Rail expanded to include nine additional corporate locations in the state of Florida. In 2017, our founder along with another Superior Fence & Rail veteran, decided to further expand the business by franchising the proven Superior Fence & Rail System. In less than three months, the company sold its first fence franchise and became the first and only active fence franchise ever developed in the United States. Since that time, we have sold one hundred additional franchises with several markets under consideration for development.


Eric Stanbra

“My business has doubled every year since I started. The second year we doubled our first year. I’m in the third year now and I’ve already sold more in 2021 than I did in all of 2020 and I think I actually did that by the beginning of June.”

Eric Stanbra was the third franchisee of Superior Fence & Rail.  After a successful career in medical device sales, including as a regional vice president of sales for a large medical device company, Eric wanted a change. He was ready to spend less time traveling and wanted to be closer to his family. He also felt that he could successfully lead his own business and generate wealth for himself and his family instead of generating wealth for others.  Eric has utilized his leadership training from the United States Military Academy at West Point, his on-the-ground experience from deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and his successful career in medical sales to build his franchise using the proven Superior Fence & Rail system.  Eric has already experienced immense success in the development of his franchise business and is looking forward to continued success while providing a valuable service to more customers every day.

Andrea and Gary Locke

“Any time we’re in a situation where we need help, help is just a phone call away. If that person can’t help, they find someone who can. We don’t feel like we’re here on our own. We feel like we’re part of a bigger team and we’re all working together to do the same thing”

Andrea and Gary purchased the very first Superior Fence & Rail franchise in Ft Myers, Florida. The husband and wife team enjoyed long and successful careers in the hospitality industry before making a career change and becoming a franchisee of Superior Fence & Rail. Relying on the customer service skills that they had perfected in their earlier careers, and leveraging the training and tools that are part of the Superior Fence & Rail system, Gary and Andrea have built a highly successful, customer-centric enterprise that is truly representative of the Superior Fence & Rail brand. Their focus on giving each customer the best experience possible has paid off.  To date, they have earned hundreds of online published reviews with an average of 4.9 out of 5 stars. They are truly wonderful ambassadors of Superior Fence & Rail.

“Our technology is better than everybody else out there in the fence industry”

Ralph Barden and Dustin Taylor began their careers with one of the corporate Superior Fence & Rail locations in Jacksonville, Florida.  After advancing through the ranks in Jacksonville, they decided that they wanted a new challenge and decided to open a Superior Fence & Rail franchise on their own.  Their knowledge of the Superior system was so vast and they executed it so well that one of their roles at the corporate location was to actually train and support new franchisees in the Superior system. It is no surprise that they had immediate success with their first franchise location, and then opened up a second franchise location less than a year later.

Doug Czerwonka

“What I like about this business model is you can grow it as quick or as fast as you want. If you’re in a good market, and you follow the instructions, you’ll be ok. There’s a recipe. But if you’re proactive, ahead of what you think is going to happen, you can even do better. The model that you give us definitely works. It made it very easy.”

For Doug and Venise Czerwonka, the fence business is a family affair.  After serving as a successful Chief Human Resources Officer in the corporate world, Doug was looking to find a successful franchise model in order to control his financial future. Because the franchise territory where Doug and Venise had already been taken, they were open to moving to a new city to open their Superior Fence & Rail franchise.  After evaluating several possible locations, they chose Nashville, Tennessee. Doug performs management functions and also serves on the front line as one of the company’s sales consultants. Venise focuses on the day-to-day operations while their daughter and son-in-law also assist in various aspects of the business. The Czerwonkas are enjoying growing their business organically at a pace that ensures they meet or exceed their aggressive profitability goals while building an asset to sustain their family financially for years to come.

“When I did the analysis of the investment required compared to the income potential…nothing else I had looked at even came close.”

I had been working in a large corporate job when I decided that I would never have the financial security I desired if I continued along that career path. I had initially been looking at purchasing an independent business when I found the Superior Fence & Rail opportunity. The fact that I had no prior fence experience whatsoever caused me some initial concern but after speaking to some of the existing team members and learning about the Superior System, I felt confident that I could be successful using their framework. But the main reason I took the leap is because when I did the analysis of the investment required compared to the income potential of the business, there was nothing else I had looked at that even came close. That was almost 10 years ago!

Todd Paroline – Superior Fence & Rail of Brevard County, Inc.


“Superior Fence & Rail allowed me to focus on my strengths as an operator while giving me the system and the tools to allow my business to grow.”

I was one of the few early members of the Superior Fence & Rail team who actually had prior fence experience. I had always been a pretty good operator, having been involved in fencing since I was a young man, but my prior fence company still struggled. Once I joined on with Superior Fence & Rail in 2009, it allowed me to tap into a proven system that had already been successful, and to take advantage of incredible material pricing based on their cumulative purchasing volume. The result was immediate profitability, and that was in 2009 when the construction market was extremely soft! Simply put, Superior Fence & Rail allowed me to focus on my strengths as an operator while giving me the system and the tools to allow my business to grow. I would strongly recommend the Superior Fence & Rail opportunity to anyone who is looking to gain financial independence for a relatively modest investment.

“In 2008 I decided to move from the UK to the USA and to seek out potential business opportunities…It was a seamless transition with the support of the Superior team and infrastructure.”

In 2008 I decided to move from the UK to the USA and to seek out potential business opportunities, After a lot of research I found Superior Fence & Rail. After due diligence I found that the investment seemed very lucrative, and I was especially interested because of it being a visa approved business. I moved over in late August 2009 and hit the ground running, The business had all the necessary vendors in place and agreements with industry leading suppliers, which enabled me to concentrate on expanding and growing the business. It was a seamless transition with the support of the Superior team and infrastructure. I am very happy to be part of the Superior Fence & Rail team!

Why Choose a Superior Fence & Rail Franchise

If you’re going to get in the fence industry, why not join the best brand in fencing? Superior Fence & Rail is one of few fence companies in the United States that have multiple locations. There are many fence companies that service multiple geographical areas, but very few have been successful enough to open up more than one or two locations. Why has Superior Fence & Rail been able to achieve what its competitors have not? The answer is simple…it’s because of our proven system. Here is what you can expect as a Superior Fence & Rail franchisee.

Group Buying Power

Our purchasing power allows us to be the low cost producer of high quality vinyl and aluminum fencing and you will be benefit from the purchasing power of an enterprise far larger than any individual location. Our collective buying power gives you the ability to obtain pricing generally reserved for only the largest companies the minute you open your doors.

How We Make Money

Look around and you will begin to notice something…fences are everywhere! Whether it is to secure a property, to give a yard some privacy or to enclose an open pool for safety, people always need fencing. Our industry is fast paced, exciting and profitable.

Installing Fence For Residential Consumers

Homeowners are among the largest individual segment of fence consumers that exist. In 2017, more than 60 percent of the 9.2 billion dollar U.S. fence market comprised residential fence consumers. Whether it is for privacy, security or aesthetics, residential homeowners regularly purchase fence. The next time you drive through your neighborhood, look around and notice how abundant fencing is throughout your community. Our fence franchise opportunity capitalizes on this ever present need for residential fencing by teaching you how to market, sell and install fence to the residential market segment.

Installing Fence For Businesses

Are you looking for a business that generates consistent recurring revenue? Did you know that home builders, pool contractors, landscape architects, commercial building contractors, land developers, hardscape contractors, property management companies and local governments are just some of the businesses that purchase fencing on a regular basis?

In most states, local statutes require that pools must be enclosed with a screen or fence in order to protect neighboring children. Nationally, more than half of all pools will have fencing installed. Home builders and land developers routinely install fences to beautify their neighborhoods and offer privacy to prospective purchasers. Property management companies regularly need fencing for the same reason.

Our fence franchise opportunity teaches you how to effectively market and sell fencing to these types of regular fence buyers.

Selling Fence Material

In addition to installing fence materials to consumers and businesses, we also sell material straight to the customers that prefer to install the fence on their own. Because we are the low-cost producer of fencing in many markets, we also sell wholesale fence to the trades, which includes fence contractors, landscapers, carpenters and handymen.
