Albuquerque Business First: Canadian homebuilding franchise Alair Plans New Mexico Expansion

The custom builders have found success in nearby Arizona and have set their sights on Southwest expansion.

British Columbia-based home-building franchise, Alair, is looking to make Albuquerque its next American home. 
 
In 2014, the company came to the United States for the first time, to Phoenix. Today, Alair calls seven separate states home and is looking to make New Mexico its eighth. 
 
"During the design and estimation, we scope out every line item right down to the fixtures, the trim and the appliances," Cecil said. "The end result is (clients) tend to get far more value for the same investment amount."
 
Rob Cecil, Alair's chief development officer, told the Albuquerque Business First that the groundwork for the franchise's first Albuquerque presence is in place. He also said that Alair is in talks with a potential franchisee, or regional partner. Cecil and Alair have plans for three to seven offices in the city. 
 
"We're simply a smarter way for them to own their own business and run it, because we eliminate the risk inherent in a construction business. Unlike a lot of industries where you grow you get reduced risk, the risk continues to grow in construction," Cecil said to the publication.
