The Dwyer Group® Ends 2012 with Remarkable Success

Franchisor of Seven Service-based Brands Continues to Grow with No Plans to Stop in 2013

Waco, Texas (PRWEB) January 16, 2013 - The Dwyer Group, a franchisor of seven service-based franchise brands, including Aire Serv®, Glass Doctor®, The Grounds Guys®, Mr. Appliance®, Mr. Electric®, Mr. Rooter® and Rainbow International®, closed out 2012 with a total of 215 new franchise contracts, capping off a year that saw continued expansion and growth for each of the brands under The Dwyer Group’s umbrella of companies.

“For The Dwyer Group, 2012 has certainly been an incredible year,” said Doug Dixon, Vice-President of Marketing and Operations for Franchise Development for the company. “We have so much to celebrate as a company and look forward to another year of many successes as we continue this trend in 2013.”

The fourth quarter of 2012 alone saw the addition of 15 new franchise contracts for the Aire Serv brand, seven new franchises for Glass Doctor, 15 new franchises for The Grounds Guys, six new franchises for Mr. Appliance, three new franchises for Mr. Electric, three new franchises for Mr. Rooter and nine new franchises for Rainbow International. In addition, nine franchisees purchased an existing franchise location and 27 established franchisees expanded their service territory.

New franchisees cite the franchisor’s proven business systems, marketing support, and unique corporate culture, including its Code of Values® as key factors in their decision to open a franchise with one of The Dwyer Group’s seven brands. In addition to the growth efforts spurring job opportunities, The Dwyer Group has placed heightened emphasis on growing both new and current programs geared toward helping military veterans, law enforcement officers, and fire rescue members realize their dreams of small business ownership. As such, the company celebrated passing the $1.5 million threshold of financial assistance to veterans through theVetFran program, which was founded by The Dwyer Group founder Don Dwyer, Sr.

“Passing the $1.5 million mark is only the beginning for us as we continue to push forward with our efforts surrounding the VetFran program ,” said Dina Dwyer-Owens Chairwoman and CEO of The Dwyer Group. “We also launched Public Protectors Franchise Advantage (PPFA) to salute current or former fulltime law enforcement or fire rescue members with a minimum of two years of full-time service, by offering 20 percent off the minimum franchise fee for any brand under The Dwyer Group’s companies as a way to continue rewarding those who have done so much for us.”

The Dwyer Group plans to continue its brands’ aggressive growth in 2013 and 2014, expanding its presence in major metros such as Chicago, Atlanta, Los Angeles, Toronto, Washington, D.C., Boston, Charlotte, and many other markets throughout North America.
