“The franchise has definitely been an edge for us. I think the name Ben Franklin is an easily recognizable name, and I think we have built a good image. We’ve always been kind of the number one plumber in our markets because of that so I think the benefits to employees is definitely plenty of work.”
– Daniel Gagne, franchisee in the San Francisco Bay Area, CA
“We had done a lot of research on Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. It was something that Bruce and I really wanted, it really attracted us. The processes. It works. The training. It works. And the customer focus.”
– Madonna Forthofer, franchisee in Kansas City, MO
“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
"We entered in the home services business in 1959, my grandfather started the business, and my dad came on after school and I came on after school and my three sons as they are starting to graduate. 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
