History

Frontdoor – Your home, solved. We obsess about your home so you don’t have to.

Frontdoor originated when ServiceMaster Global Holdings, Inc. announced its plan to spin off its billion-dollar home service plan business led by American Home Shield, and brought in new leadership with a vision to create a billion-dollar startup that grows its core business and expands its services.

American Home Shield founded the home service plan industry more than 45 years ago, and remains the market leader. The company has long-standing strategic relationships with key real estate companies, and its home service plans are included in more than 400,000 real estate transactions per year.

Today, the company operates in all 50 states, servicing more than 2 million customers through a nationwide network of more than 15,000 contractors that employ more than 45,000 technicians. The company operates contact centers in five states to service customers across its four brands.

Frontdoor is focused on not only growing its core business, but also within the broader $400 billion home services market. The team is obsessed with taking the hassle out of owning a home, and being the first choice when it comes to home repairs, maintenance and improvements. The stand-alone company is fully focused on delivering a great customer experience and delivering long-term shareholder value.
