Epcon Communities Franchising, Inc., headquartered in Dublin, Ohio, is one of the leading developers and franchise operators of single-story, residential condominium communities in the United States.
Epcon Communities has been building single-story residential condominium communities for over 20 years and in 2009, we were named America's #1 For Sale Attached Home Builder.
Epcon Company History
Company founders Philip Fankhauser and Edward Bacome built their first residential development in Columbus, Ohio, in 1986. Three years later, they were approached by a builder who wanted to mimic the design and floorplans in a new community nearby. The partners, however, were reluctant to license their already proven system out to other builders, and at the time had little interest in expanding outside of the Columbus market. But the product became so instantly successful and widely popular that others soon came calling…looking to build an Epcon Communities-style development in neighboring cities or in outlying areas of Ohio.
Finally, they granted the first license to use their successful construction plans, and an innovative idea was born. The company launched the franchising concept in 1995 and hasn’t looked back yet (except to see rivals attempting to copy their successful strategy).
That franchising initiative has proven tremendously successful. By the end of 2006, Epcon Communities and its franchise affiliates had developed more than 20,000 homes in more than 30 states. The long-term goal is to expand into all 50 states and Canada.
Our buyers want more social interaction, more free time, and single story living which is why each Epcon Community provides:
Your own door, and patio or veranda just like a single family home. The unique design of the driveways act as buffers to your home.
Close to shopping and convenient to major highways. Only minutes to the airport, churches, banks, parks, theater, and restaurants. Enjoy walking, swimming or exercising at the clubhouse.
Sit by the pool, relax and visit with your friends. Use the clubhouse for your private parties as well as neighborhood parties. Live in a neighborhood with new friends, many like yourself that are ready to enjoy life.
Sense of Community
Feel free from worry when you are away from home. Only owners or guests of owners should be in the neighborhood. Most neighbors watch out for each other. Your attached garage permits you to come and go directly into your condominium.
Leaves you free to travel or enjoy leisure time without worrying about exterior maintenance, grass mowing, and landscaping or snow removal. Let someone else do it all for you. Sit back, enjoy your warm gas log fireplace and let it snow, or bask in the sun at the clubhouse pool and let someone else pull the weeds, mow the grass and plant the flowers!
