Epcon Plans for Expansion in 2017 Through Mix of Corporate and Franchise Builder Communities
Epcon, the 40th-largest home builder in the U.S. and the 22nd-largest privately owned homebuilding company in the country (Builder, May 2016), is expanding briskly both through home sales in newly developed communities and plans to break ground on new communities across eight states.
Growth is expected through a mix of corporate ventures as well as the efforts of Franchise Builders who utilize Epcon’s system for developing communities.
For 2017, Epcon is working with an expanded suite of copyrighted floor plans including the recently announced American Porch Collection as well as new duplex and triplex floor plans. Epcon’s ranch style homes attract a wide segment of buyers including those in the lucrative 55+ age demographic who, according to a Metrostudy report, will drive a majority of new home purchases for the foreseeable future.
Epcon has 30 years of experience in the residential building business and 20 years of franchising and has constantly stayed ahead of demographic buying trends.
