Husband and Wife Team become Handyman Connection Owners


Rafael and Mirian Aleman were business owners in their native country of Venezuela. Since coming to the U.S., they have created corporate careers for themselves while raising a family. When their oldest daughter and her husband began working with FranCoach to find a franchise to own, Rafael and Mirian felt it was time for them to become business owners themselves.

Rafael and Mirian were extremely willing and open to follow the FranCoach process which made the search for their ideal franchise very easy.  The couple looked briefly at two franchisors, but it was quickly obvious that Handyman Connection was the best fit.

Who is Handyman Connection?

Handyman Connection is a full-service repair and remodeling franchise that utilizes cutting-edge technology to create a high-quality customer experience. This combination was a perfect match for the Alemans because their business in Venezuela was similar in nature and they both have an educational background in computer science.

Rafael and Mirian are headed to training with the goal of launching their Houston-based business later this spring. Their daughter Valeria and her husband Eduardo will be starting a Senior Helpers franchise early in the summer. And believe it or not, Eduardo’s parents are close to opening their AdvantaClean franchise, all based out of Houston.

Please join us in wishing Rafael and Mirian the best of luck with their new franchise!

“You have nothing to lose by having a conversation with FranCoach. Worst-case scenario, you discover you don’t want to touch this with a ten-foot pole. But best case, you figure out, hey this might be something for me and there are some possibilities here.”

Stephen, Arizona

“I remember when I first started exploring the idea of franchises and I found the Franchising 101 Podcast. I just got hooked. There were such good snippets of information and I started eating through them and listening to them all the time.”

Geoff, Pennsylvania

“The conversation we had, just on that first call, when you said, ‘Tell more about Ryan, what flips your switch, what gets you out of bed in the morning’… it was really important to me to know those things upfront.”

Ryan, Alabama

“One of the lessons that I learned very quickly was to focus on what is driving you as an individual. What makes you get up, and what do you want to get up and do every day?”

George, Pennsylvania

“If you have questions, if you want answers, or if you’re not sure if it’s for you – there’s no reason not to reach out to FranCoach.”
