Mr. Rooter Looking for New Operation in Wilmington
WILMINGTON, N.C. (May 12, 2009) – Entrepreneurs wanting to open a company but not be in business by themselves should look at franchising.
For example, Mr. Rooter Corporation, a full-service plumbing and drain cleaning company, is on the lookout for qualified franchise owners in Wilmington.
“We want to help motivated professionals open businesses and assist them in bringing new jobs to their area,” said Mary Kennedy Thompson, president of Mr. Rooter Corporation. “Our corporate office provides on-going training and support to enable franchise owners to provide outstanding customer experiences to their communities.”
Technicians follow a professional system, putting covers over their shoes when inside homes and businesses to protect their customers’ properties. They also give a customer the price before work is done, using a menu pricing guide to ensure there are no surprises about the cost of service.
With approximately 300 franchises worldwide, Mr. Rooter franchisees provide services to both residential and commercial customers. Using trenchless technology, technicians can repair sewer lines without extensive digging in yards and tearing up walkways and driveways. Exclusive to Mr. Rooter, BioChoiceES® is a drain maintenance treatment that is environmentally friendly, safe on plumbing and easy to use.
Established in 1970, Mr. Rooter Corporation has been recognized with the following accolades:
- Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 list
- Franchise Times magazine’s Top 200 ranking
- Franchise Business Review’s Franchise 50 Awards, which highlights the top franchise companies with the highest levels of overall franchisee satisfaction.
Upon purchasing a franchise, new owners attend a five-day training course on best practices, customer service techniques and marketing at the corporate office. The company hosts regional, national and international trainings, meetings and conferences throughout the year.
“A huge benefit of joining a franchise system is having a priceless group of seasoned franchisees who share their ideas, advice and success stories with fellow franchisees,” Thompson said. “Joining the Mr. Rooter network enables a businessperson to locally own and operate a company with the advantages of having support and training from our corporate office.”
