Mr. Rooter® Rolls Out New Franchise Locations

Waco, Texas (PRWEB) August 15, 2014 - Mr. Rooter rolled out five new franchise locations in the second quarter of 2014. In addition to these new locations, three existing franchise locations will be extending their service territory, bringing plumbing services to a growing number of customers.

"Our continued growth speaks not just to our brand," Mary Kennedy Thompson, president of Mr. Rooter, said. "It speaks to the outstanding dedication of our franchisees as well, and without them we would not be the company that we are today. We are excited to strengthen the Mr. Rooter brand and look forward to continued success."

Mr. Rooter welcomed the following new franchise locations:

  • Troy Skoog, LaSalle, Illinois
  • Michael Horn, Macungie, Pennsylvania, USA Veteran*
  • Matthew Gass, Chattanooga, Tennessee
  • Anthony Natoli, Freehold, New Jersey
  • William Kimberlin III, Kannapolis, New Jersey

*Participant in The Dwyer Group’s VetFran program for military veterans.

Gass, who purchased a new franchise location in Chattanooga, also owns a Mr. Rooter franchise in Trenton, Georgia. He has owned his franchise in Georgia since 2011.

"We are pleased with our growth this quarter," Heather McLeod, Director of Franchise Sales Marketing at The Dwyer Group® and National Brand Manager for Mr. Rooter, said. "As a company, we love helping people achieve their goals through business ownership and these new franchisees are warmly welcomed into the Mr. Rooter family."

Mr. Rooter also recognized three existing franchises – Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Lexington, Kentucky, owned by David Napier; Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Irish Hills in Brooklyn, Michigan and Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Central Pennsylvania owned by Paul Nelson – for increasing service area by expanding service territory. The new franchise locations are on schedule to open by early 2015.

In June of 2014, USA Today and the WorldFranchising Network selected Mr. Rooter as one of the 50 Top Franchises for Veterans. Mr. Rooter participates in initiatives that provide discounts to Veterans who want to become business owners through franchising.
