Ted Fisher, 56, spent much of his career in the renovation business. Yet as Fisher’s business began to founder, he thought that there had to be a better way. In 2007, he found that better way in his first Miracle Method showroom, Miracle Method of Northern NH located at 36 Littleworth Road Unit 1 and serving Concord, Dover, Rochester and York County.
Since his opening, Fisher’s life and business success has turned around dramatically. It inspired him to purchase another territory one year later, Miracle Method of Metrowest Boston, serving the area with the same cost- and time-saving refinishing business that has served North American homeowners since 1977. In Metrowest Boston Fisher brought his daughter Meagan on board as his partner. After forming their partnership they went on to purchase franchises in Southern NH and Worcester County forming Miracle Method of New Hampshire and Northern MA.
“My decision to purchase another Miracle Method franchise was a plan that was laid out after about six months into the business,” said Fisher. “Being the visionary and dreamer that I am, I knew I needed to bring somebody on board with organizational skills, who is grounded and can help get to the next level of a growing business. I chose my daughter Meagan, first for her abilities, and second because she wants to keep the vision alive that I had when I started the business. So far she has far exceeded my already lofty expectations; and comfortably runs Miracle Method of New Hampshire and Northern MA.”
Fisher’s previous business was not unlike the one he runs now. The former owner of an independent tile restoration company, Fisher was keenly aware of the value of refinishing unattractive kitchen and bathroom surfaces, especially compared to the costly process of replacing them. But the economy was tough, and Fisher faced some tough choices.
“My business was failing and I had used almost all my savings to keep it afloat,” said Fisher. “I went to a Miracle Method Discovery Day where I learned what the company has to offer and their vision for the future. I found that they had a great philosophy on the structure of a franchise and the relationship between a franchisor and franchisee. I am a firm believer in franchising because it saves costs and time that would otherwise be spent during the learning curve. You are surrounded by very successful people who are willing to share their knowledge.”
Encouraged by what he saw, Fisher purchased his Miracle Method business with his remaining savings.
“I took what little I had left and purchased a Miracle Method franchise because I believed in the company and its structure,” said Fisher.
In Fisher’s eyes, his success has come down to the system that has made Miracle Method a mainstay in the world of refinishing throughout North America.
“The Miracle Method system offers residential clients as well as commercial clients the ability to update their surroundings, to make them more appealing to themselves or to the clients that visit their establishments at a reduced cost and a much faster turnaround time,” said Fisher. “Our plan now is to build the best refinishing company in the northeast with the assistance of the Miracle Method system and give all our clients residential and commercial the service that we would all like to experience as individuals.”
