Donnie Hall spent most of his career in the home services industry and always had an appreciation for its resilience. “It’s an industry where a ‘product’ isn’t going to replace you,” he says.

Business Ownership

After 25 years of working in management for a major paint company, he decided to go into business for himself. His love of the home services industry led him to launch a flooring store in 2019, which eventually brought him to Mighty Dog Roofing a few years later. While his store was successful, he realized it could benefit from a complementary business.

Franchisee Donnie Hall invested in Mighty Dog Roofing to complement his Dayton Ohio flooring business. He enjoys spending time with his family and his team.

In his search, Hall looked at carpet cleaning, painting and garage coating franchises, but ultimately opted for roofing with Mighty Dog. The 11-year-old company specializes in roof replacement and roofing repairs, but also offers siding, gutters, windows, solar panels and emergency services for both residential and commercial customers.

Hall loved how Mighty Dog Roofing used tools and resources to support franchisees. For example, the company’s “Mighty Drone” allows franchise owners to serve property managers and homeowners with the latest technology and analytics. Additional franchise support includes an in-house subcontractor recruiting department and a call center.

A Perfect Partner

It was important for Hall to partner with a company that had proven leadership and a commitment to franchisee success. He found it with Mighty Dog Roofing. “I am proud to partner with a company that is full of great people. Each and everyone has been wonderful,” he says. Since opening Mighty Dog Roofing of Dayton, Ohio, in December 2021, he has been happy with his decision. “The two businesses work well together to leverage sales opportunities,” he says.

With very little experience in the roofing industry, Hall and his team took advantage of Mighty Dog’s comprehensive training program to get up and running. “Mighty Dog Roofing has a wonderful training process in place. From its weeklong training academy to multiple virtual online training sessions throughout the week, there are plenty of opportunities to learn. I am very appreciative of this.”

The Roofing Industry

The roofing industry has been growing steadily over the past decade. There are 79,379 roofing contractor businesses in the U.S., according to IBISWorld. The Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the number of roofers will grow by 5%-6% by 2023.
