Sunburst Electric

Full Description

The Brand

Let’s start at the beginning:

The rights to sell Mr. Electric in South Africa were purchased in 2015. Mr Electric originates from the USA and is known as a global franchise organisation which provides electrical installation and repair services. Mr. Electric is a subsidiary of The Dwyer Group, Inc., the holding company of a family of service franchises which consists of Mr. Rooter Plumbing, AireServ, Five Star Painting, Mr. Handyman & Mr. Appliance, among others.

We changed the name from Mr. Electric to Sunburst Electric to reflect our enthusiastic and high energy approach to helping our customers. The franchise system has been in operation since 1994 and with a huge gap in the South African market for excellent customer service in the electrical industry, it made absolute sense to launch this well known, global electrical contracting franchise on South African soil.

Why choose Sunburst Electric?

With over 30 years experience, franchisees can be confident that Sunburst Electric is a globally proven franchise system. Local as well as international support is readily available to all franchisees, from operational and marketing support, to day-to-day business support. We focus on providing expert electrical service that fully satisfies our customers needs.

The set-up cost is inclusive of equipment, hardware and software, marketing material, training as well as a fully branded vehicle.
