Starting an Electric Repair Business

A Great Conduit for Energizing your Career

For many entrepreneurs, the idea of starting an electrical business is exciting. Residential electrical services are always in demand, and there is unlimited potential for you to start and grow a company that can help provide the professional security you desire.

The industry is growing, and in-home consumer demand for electrical services is driving the need for reputable, trustworthy companies to support an array of electrical repair and installations requirements.

According to the National Bureau of Economic Research, the pandemic of 2020 has dramatically impacted the increased use of electricity in homes. As the work-from-home evolution expanded, electricity consumption did as well. The surge in usage was inevitable with extended video meeting sessions, more frequent use of heating and cooling systems, and lights, computers, and printers running all day.

This trend presents an excellent opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to own their electric business. But how do you get started? At Mr. Electric®, we have an established franchise model that can quickly get you up and running in this industry and provide the tools for you to reach your goals.

Why Mr. Electric?

Brand Loyalty and Resources to Amp Up Your Success

There are several paths to building an electrical business, but they don't all lead to the future you deserve. Consider the path that affords you a balanced lifestyle with unbeatable support: an electrical services franchise opportunity with Mr. Electric.

Since 1994, Mr. Electric has provided expert electrical installation and repair services to commercial and residential customers, making homes and businesses more efficient and enjoyable. Unlike other home services that impact just one area or element of the home, electricity touches every corner inside and out – and rapid advancement in consumer technology is creating unlimited opportunities for savvy entrepreneurs.

Why The Electric Repair and Replacement Industry?

Residential energy consumption is on the rise, and the expanding need for home electrical contracting will drive a bright future for this specialized sector of the home services industry.

A continuous stream of electricity is crackling through every home in North America, powering computers, lights, even electric vehicle chargers. Unlike other home services, which may affect just one area or element of the home, electricity touches literally every corner. And rapid advancement in consumer technology is only fueling the need for quality electrical services across the country.

Startup Advantages of Franchise Ownership

Small Footprint

Low overhead is part of the beauty of our model. Initial office space is not required and is only needed when you deem it necessary.

Limited Receivables

Most projects are "same day pay" where your technicians leave with payment. Rarely do you have to chase down receivables.


The customer seeks out In-demand electrical services. There is no need for cold calling because customers find you.

In its 2021 mid-year report on the U.S. Electricians industry, research company, IBIS World noted that the outlook for electricians is bright.

Ideal Franchise Owner

You Have the Drive and Spark

The motivation to become a business owner stems from many things, but the majority of our current owners have chosen Mr. Electric as a way to regain the time and freedom that are in short supply in the corporate world. They are former managers and sales leaders looking for a culture of cooperation, trust, and respect, which they have found in abundance within the Mr. Electric and the Neighborly family of brands.

We've realized those who excel within our system seem to have undeniable energy coursing through their veins. They know the business opportunity they have chosen to align with gets more exciting with each passing day. There is no slowing the electrical industry, just as our franchise owners are not stopping from leading the charge.

The support doesn’t end at training and tools because you also receive marketing strategy and resources for your specific territory.
