March 15, 2016 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas – This month the arrival of spring also brings the landmark arrival of the 35th anniversary for The Dwyer Group, Inc., providing services to consumers in communities around the world. This milestone creates the perfect backdrop for the growth and expansion that lies ahead for one of the world’s largest franchising companies of trade service brands.

“For the past 35 years, Dwyer Group has always tried to go beyond our goals to make a difference in the lives of people we touch all over the world,” said Mike Bidwell, president and CEO of Dwyer Group. “We have built a strong business focused on bringing trade services supported by our Code of Values into different communities.
