WACO, Texas - The Dwyer Group Inc., one of the world’s largest franchising companies of trades service brands, has announced a new program designed specifically to assist large independent businesses interested in becoming a part of a larger national and international franchise brand.

The Dwyer Group’s Large Conversion Franchise Development Program will help heating/cooling, plumbing, electrical, restoration, appliance service, glass replacement and landscape management companies convert their businesses into one of The Dwyer Group franchise concepts. And the program will offer upfront funding of anticipated conversion costs to support the transition.

“We have very large companies that come to us all of the time and want to become a part of The Dwyer Group,” said Robert Tunmire, executive vice president of The Dwyer Group. “And we have specifically created a new program that makes this process very appealing and easier than ever before.”

The company said the program recognizes a growing audience of interest that, while large and successful, is still looking for the added benefits of being part of a group with national buying power, extensive marketing support, branding success, and multi-level business training.

“This new program is a win-win for all involved as it reduces the investment involved in a franchise without diluting any of the benefits,” Tunmire said.

Doug Dixon, director of conversion development, will be leading the program. For more information, prospects can contact Dixon at 254-759-5890 or doug.dixon@dwyergroup.com.

The Dwyer Group, based in Waco, Texas, is a holding company of seven franchise businesses, each selling and supporting a different franchise under the following service marks: Aire Serv®, Glass Doctor®, The Grounds Guys™, Mr. Appliance®, Mr. Electric®, Mr. Rooter® (Drain Doctor in the UK and Portugal), and Rainbow International®.
