What experience do I need to become a PEAK Elevator™ franchise owner?

Ideally, franchisees will come from within the vertical transportation industry and have some experience with elevator and escalator maintenance, repair and installations. Whether you are an existing elevator company owner already providing services to a current client base, or an individual inspector, consultant, service tech, sales rep, or other industry professional currently working under an employment arrangement, we have program options that suit different candidate profiles. We look for franchise candidates who are hard-working, reliable, and able to build relationships with team members and clients alike. All franchisees will be required to meet all licensing requirements for the location of their franchise that will enable them to perform all of the services offered by PEAK Elevator™.

What is provided as part of the PEAK Elevator™ franchise system?

We will provide one week of training at the PEAK Vertical Transportation Group™ corporate location approximately four weeks before your franchise launch.
