About Zach Beutler & Josh Skolnick:
Josh Skolnick is the co-founder and CEO of Horse Power Brands, a home services franchisor and the parent company of Mighty Dog Roofing. Josh founded Monster Tree Service in 2008 and grew the brand to a multi-million-dollar U.S. network.
Zachery Beutler is the co-founder and CDO of Horse Power Brands. He began his career in franchising as a young franchisee with Nebraska-based Complete Nutrition, later becoming a multi-unit franchisee of Color World Housepainting, Inc.
The idea of HorsePower Brands began in 2019 when franchise veterans Josh Skolnick & Zach Beutler, determined to disrupt the franchise industry joined forces to form HorsePower Brands. Frustrated by the lack of accountability by franchisors to open and support franchisees the duo wanted to create a platform focused on operational excellence and accountability. Accountability starts with ownership and that’s why they own at minimum a controlling interest in all the brands to which their ownership group attaches their names. All steps of selling a franchise opportunity and supporting franchise owners are handled under one roof by their staff. They have developed detailed and transparent franchise development strategies that allow them to responsibly award franchise opportunities to the right people. More importantly, they are open to all the franchise territories they award and have experienced operations teams to ensure their franchisees achieve their financial goals through business ownership.
