The Dwyer Group® Named Among Top Innovative Franchises

Waco, Texas (PRWEB) September 05, 2014 - Entrepreneur Magazine recently listed The Dwyer Group as one of their Top Innovative Franchises. The Dwyer Group, the parent company for seven home service brands, was recognized on the list for a program initiated by Dina Dwyer-Owens, Co-Chairman of The Dwyer Group.

"It is an honor to be listed among the top innovative franchises by Entrepreneur Magazine," Heather McLeod, Director of Franchise Sales Marketing at The Dwyer Group, said. "We are dedicated to helping people achieve their personal and professional goals in the service industry through franchising."

Entrepreneur’s Our Top Innovative Franchises contained 15 new and 15 established innovators. The Dwyer Group was among the established innovators.

The "Women in the Trades" (WIT) program, for which The Dwyer Group was recognized, offers scholarships to women to attend trade or technical schools so they can get service jobs or own their own businesses. The goal of the scholarship is to offer women the opportunity break professional boundaries and pursue life-long goals in the service trades.
