Ted Franssen

Ted is the owner of ABC of Nebraska—and our fearless leader! After graduating from high school, Ted found himself installing siding, gutters, and windows for ABC Seamless—the nation’s largest seamless steel siding franchise. He learned he was not only good at installation, but he had a knack for working directly with homeowners.  With a focus on quality work and products, Ted quickly moved into sales and eventually ownership.

In 1996, Ted purchased his first ABC Seamless franchise in Central Nebraska (Wood River).  He grew the business to the point of winning the “ABC Seamless Franchise of the Year” award in 2004.  Ted took the next step in 2005 when he purchased the Omaha franchise.  Previously a corporate-owned, this second location started what is now called ABC Seamless of Nebraska.  In 2015, he acquired his third store in Lincoln, Nebraska, and won his second “ABC Seamless Franchise of the Year” award in December of 2015.

Ted has built quite a name for himself in the world of exterior home improvements, but he’ll never forget how it all started: with a ladder, a truck, and a tool belt.

Ted is one of 3 children from Lincoln, Nebraska.  His brother, Jason, is the Production Manager for the ABC Seamless of Nebraska Wood River location.  Ted has 3 children and 2 grandchildren.  In his spare time, he enjoys boating, skiing, golfing, Nebraska football, and spending time with his kids and grandkids.
