Koala Insulations footprint on the west coast continues to grow after recently awarding territory in Seattle. With significant tailwinds with the new Inflation Reduction Act (Billions of Dollars dedicated to Residential Insulation), rising energy costs across the country and a proven franchisor, our newest franchise partner knew Koala was a great opportunity to sell savings to customers.
Congratulations to our newest Franchise Partners. Koala Insulation adds another franchisee awarding multiple territories in Seattle, WA. Koala now has over 360+ territories in operation across the United States and still is just getting started. Koala continues to be a favorite franchise for both owner-operators and semi-absentee owners who see the value in ‘selling savings’ and the Franchisor team. Koala also recently announced multiple national partnerships to drive revenue to franchise partners.

Koala is capping off a record-breaking year and franchisee interest has not slowed down. Koala has expanded their infrastructure significantly, adding equipment suppliers and vendors along with multiple national accounts. It’s no surprise that Koala has awarded 5 new franchises in the past few weeks and Q4 is looking to be the strongest quarter to date for franchise growth and system wide revenue.
