In 1998, she and her husband, Andy Bell, started Handyman Matters and franchised it in 2001, growing it to a successful franchise system still in operation today and still privately owned. She held numerous positions in the company including CEO from 2004 to 2008, growing system sales in excess of $35 million. She was also responsible for accounting, marketing, vendor management, and development. Handyman Matters developed their own proprietary scheduling, dispatching, invoicing and accounting software and she was instrumental in overseeing the original creation and enhancement of that software during the 18 years at Handyman Matters. Colette spent from 2013 to 2016 creating and running her own franchise consulting company where she worked with over 25 franchisors in all areas of growth. Colette has a Bachelors Degree in Communication from Colorado State University. She enjoys leveraging her experience as a franchisor from the trenches into the boardrooms of clients to provide them with assistance and direction in developing and growing their franchise systems.
