OMAHA, Neb. - Venvest recently announced that it has signed up 30 companies in slightly more than two months for its One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating franchise.

"It's an idea whose time has come," said One Hour President Alan Mintz on Sept. 9 to the new franchise owners during a four-day meeting. "I think contractors realize the days of the small independent have passed, and they want to leverage the value of a national brand."

The One Hour selling proposition is: "Always on time or you don't pay a dime." The guarantee to customers is that the franchise owner will arrive within one hour of the promised time or everything is free.

According to Venvest, One Hour is designed to help its franchises grow, increase the value of their businesses, and make their companies more attractive acquisition candidates.
