Welcoming the Newest Duo in Home Improvement

Updated: Oct 13, 2023

We are excited to announce the newest owners of Archadeck Outdoor Living: Angel and Paul Milhoan. This husband-and-wife team is proud to be taking control of their financial future with a business that will help homeowners in their community transform their outdoor spaces.

Who Are Angel and Paul Milhoan?

With their children now grown up, Paul and Angel had both been working for other people – but they had always hoped for the chance to start a business of their own. With over 20 years of experience in the automotive industry, Paul thought his prior experience would be a good fit for an auto-related opportunity. But as often happens in franchising, Paul and Angel discovered an unexpected path that ended up being their perfect match…

Why Did the Milhoans Make a Career Change?

Paul and Angel were avid listeners of the Franchising 101 Podcast, on which FranCoach’s Founder and CEO Tim Parmeter shares education and insights about the world of franchise ownership. After enjoying a few episodes of the show, Paul and Angel decided to reach out to the FranCoach team themselves and take the first steps toward their better tomorrow.

They were looking to stop working for others and instead invest in themselves, gaining control of their time and setting themselves up for a high-quality retirement down the road. While they came into the Discovery Process looking for a business in the auto industry, they quickly realized that there were other options that aligned more closely with their goals, needs, and preferences. With Archadeck, the compatibility was almost love at first sight.

Why Will the Milhoans Make Great Franchise Owners?

The Milhoans worked with Tim Parmeter at FranCoach to find their perfect match at Archadeck. Here’s what Tim has to say about why Paul and Angel are sure to succeed:

“Within a week or two, Paul and Angel had narrowed down their options and honed in on Archadeck – and it was so clear that it was the perfect fit. And the franchisor felt the same way. They are an amazing couple and great human beings who complement each other professionally very well.”

Throughout the Discovery Process, the Milhoans also worked with Erin Zide, Director of Franchise Recruiting at Archadeck. Erin was thrilled to have them on board:

“Angel and Paul Milhoan have been a dream to work with from the first conversation. They were open to the Discovery Process, engaged in learning, and came with a mission to find the right fit. The Milhoans will be a wonderful addition to the Archadeck Outdoor Living family.”

Why Did the Milhoans Choose Archadeck?

Archadeck is a deck-building franchise in the thriving home improvement industry. For any aspiring franchise owners who are interested in the recession-resistant home services industry, Archadeck offers a custom design and build home renovation franchise model with over 25 years of experience and over $1 billion in completed projects.

Angel and Paul were immediately attracted to the Archadeck model, and with the support of Empower Brands behind them, they were confident in their potential for success. Attending an in-person Meet the Team Day only confirmed what they already knew: Archadeck was the perfect fit that would afford them control of their lifestyle and their financial future.

Please join our team at FranCoach in congratulating Angel and Paul Milhoan and wishing them luck as new owners of Archadeck.
