Franchise Opportunities

If you are not confident about launching out on your own, check out franchise opportunities. Although start costs are generally far greater than starting a business from scratch, the support of the parent company makes franchises more viable for less experienced entrepreneurs.

In addition to the initial costs of purchasing the franchise, the franchise company receives a portion of your business’ sales.

Research franchises online to determine initial costs and expected profits, to find an operation compatible with your skills, goals, and your market.

Professional Business, Professional Office

Business Startup OfficeImpress your company’s clients by putting a professional face on your company. Conducting business from an attractive and well-maintained building in a good location inspires confidence in your operation.

When the time comes to erect your business’ first office, headquarters, or warehouse, consider the advantages offered by a RHINO Steel Building System.

Our pre-engineered metal buildings provide distinct advantages as low-rise office buildings.

  • Flexible Floor Plans. Clear span steel structures simplify building floor plans. Without the need for load-bearing walls, floor plans rearrangement simply and economically to accommodate a growing company’s changing needs.
  • Low Overhead. With proper insulation (like RHINO’s Pro-Value Insulation Package), steel structures cut utilities in half. Inorganic metal buildings avoid mold, mildew, and termite problems and expensive repairs. Pre-engineered steel buildings need very little upkeep, saving even more. Steel’s fire-resistant properties earn lower insurance rates with many carriers. RHINO steel buildings hold their value and great looks decades longer than other types of structures, so your structural investment remains secure.
  • Economical Expansion. As your new start business grows, so can your RHINO steel building. Extending endwalls on a pre-engineered metal building is both easy and cost-effective. Sidewall expansions are also available. If the structure’s ceiling height allows, mezzanine second floors expand usable space in a metal building.

Familiarize yourself with the many benefits we call The RHINO Difference. You will soon see why so many RHINO customers return to RHINO again and again for all their building projects.

Give RHINO a call now at 888.320.7466. Our steel building specialists will answer all your questions, offer expert advice, and furnish free quotes for your business’ new home.
