“I was a trades guy. I wanted to grow a business but really didn’t have the skills to do it. If you have the drive and determination and want to learn, the network is very open to helping you.”
– Aaron Hagan, franchisee in NW AR and Oklahoma City, OK
"The great thing about how this franchise system works is that they work with you. They give you the steps you could take. They give you all the information you need.”
– Jeff Rahn, franchisee in Hastings, MN
“There is power in numbers and that’s why I bought into the brand. One of the greatest things we have is private branded products, smoke detectors that sort of thing. An independent cannot get that kind of value.”
– Rusty Wise, franchisee in Cherry Hill & Charlotte, NC
"I have the ability now to tap into a technical school and I’ve already got four guys in that training program. I have guys that I’m bringing up in our business that really nobody else offers this in my area and I have some mighty big competitors. They can’t touch this."
– Tony Zack, franchisee in Myrtle Beach, SC
"We entered in the home services business in 1959, my grandfather started it, and my dad came on after school and I came on after school and my three sons are starting. The benefits of franchise really take me back to 2003 when my father and I had a discussion and he said Scott it’s a 45 year-old family business and it’s your choice. You can try and do it independently or you can hook up with these brands.”
– Scott Rohrer, franchisee in Lancaster, PA
