Birmingham Ala. — Home renovations are about to become much easier for residents in Alabama. N-Hance Wood Refinishing, a national franchise that specializes in the refinishing of kitchen cabinets and hardwood floors, has announced expansion plans to bring 10 new locations to the market over the next three years. Backed by Harris Research, Inc., N-Hance is the only wood refinishing company with a presence in more than 1,300 Home Depots across the nation.

Already working toward this development goal, N-Hance will debut in the state with new ownership of the Huntsville location this June. The Huntsville location will span across Morgan County, Limestone County and Madison County. The husband and wife team, Paula and Larry Strickland, are no strangers to the home improvement space. Together they’ve been flipping homes in California and Georgia for over six years before deciding to pursue entrepreneurship as a second act career and move back to their home state. The Stricklands could not be more excited to debut N-Hance’s services to the community.

“Alabama overall is truly an untapped market for the home improvement industry. There are so many homeowners throughout the state looking to have their cabinets and hardwood floors professionally refinished for a refreshed, updated look,” stated Larry. “We’re excited to take on a nationally recognized brand name like N-Hance Wood Refinishing and become a staple in the area.”

The brand recently celebrated the opening of its 500-unit and has seen continued increases in top line sales. Since 2014, the top quartile of franchisees has seen over 30 percent growth year-over-year. The franchise network’s continued growth and success has also pushed N-Hance Wood Refinishing to new heights in the 2018 Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 List ranking, putting it at No. 159, a jump of nearly 100 spots from its ranking of No. 258 in 2017.

One key factor that has driven the brand’s expansion over the past few years has been its efforts to find qualified franchisees in specific target markets, both nationally and internationally. N-Hance has sights set on continued growth, with plans to award 95more franchises in 2018. Additional development markets throughout Alabama include the cities of Birmingham, Montgomery and Mobile.

“Our continued research and development has led us to introducing numerous new products and services every year, which has strengthened our franchise model and helped us attract new franchisees,” said D’Wayne Tanner, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development “With the economy continuing to improve and the rise of home improvement spending, N-Hance is seeking entrepreneurs in Alabama who will make successful franchise partners and help our great company continue a high level of growth.”

N-Hance Wood Refinishing is an innovative, affordable cabinet and floor renewal service. Wood cabinets and floors are renewed without the inconvenience associated with traditional refinishing and provides a much higher quality and durability than painting methods. The brand uses proprietary solutions and refinishing techniques to restore the natural beauty or change the color of hardwood floors, cabinets, doors and trims – at a more affordable cost than traditional remodels.
