August 17, 2016 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas – The Dwyer Group, one of the world’s largest franchising companies of trades service brands, has been named to Inc. magazine’s 5,000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in the country for 2016.
The Inc. 5000 list ranks private businesses according to percentage of revenue growth over a four-year period to create a list of the fastest-growing companies in the nation. These companies represent the backbone of the U.S. economy and are a primary source of U.S. job growth.
Dwyer Group ranks 4742 on the 2016 list. Since re-partnering with The Riverside Company, a private equity fund with locations in North America, Europe and Asia, in August 2014, Dwyer has closed on 6 add-on acquisitions, one being a multi-brand franchisor platform (Service Brands International and its three franchise networks of Molly Maid, Mr. Handyman and ProTect Painters). System sales have increased by nearly 50% to $1.3 billion, both by organic growth and acquisitions.
“This is wonderful recognition for our entire franchise family,” said Mike Bidwell, president and CEO of Dwyer Group. “Our continued growth and success is a credit to our strong network of franchisees and a dedicated corporate team. We would not be where we are today without the commitment, hard work and passion of both our franchisees and our corporate associates.”
