NEW FRANCHISE GROWTH FOR DIRECT ENERGY FAMILY OF BRANDS

Three home services brands have strong momentum going into 2015

More than a dozen new franchise territories have recently been added to the Direct Energy® family of brands. One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating North NJ®, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® and Mister Sparky® electric continue to show significant growth. One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating North NJ just ranked number one in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) services category in Entrepreneur magazine’s 2015 Franchise 500®. Mister Sparky electric was ranked number one in the electrical services category and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing ranked second in the plumbing category, on the magazine’s annual top franchise list. It looks at factors like financial strength and stability, growth rate, and size of the franchise system.
