An IFPG Consultant's Candidate Secures a Mr. Electric Franchise in Charlotte, NC

An IFPG Consultant's client had business ownership in his blood. He grew up in a household where owning a business WAS the family business and he was ready for one of his own. His IFPG Consultant introduced him to Neighborly's brand Mr. Electric and it was the perfect fit!

The franchisee said, "As an electrical and nuclear engineer, I was attracted to the electric aspect of Mr. Electric. Neighborly has done a fantastic job establishing a top-notch reputation and I would be proud to
count myself amongst your ranks. And I have both experienced first-hand and heard stories from neighbors of how woefully underserved this area is for electrical work."

Neighborly was attached to this candidate since he was a project management consultant on a wide range of projects through a private consulting firm in Charlotte, NC. He was a Senior Project Manager with his company and a certified PMP. He developed strategies and plans, assigned resources, managed change, analyzed data, made adjustments, lead people, managed things, and delivered desired results.

Recently, The Home Depot named Mr. Electric as its national home services vendor for residential electrical work. Mr. Electric franchisees are recommended to the customers of The Home Depot for all electrical installations, services, outdoor lighting services, and any other electrical service that could be required by customers. The support from the World Headquarters includes ongoing support after the initial one-week intensive training at the home office by way of Franchise Consultants who visit franchisee locations to help both office and field personnel with continual polishing of their relationship-building and business skill sets. Mr. Electric also offers a true marketing department as well as a public relations team that will help franchisees to continue to grow in their markets. We do not own or operate any franchises. As of December 31, 2014, we had 148 franchises in the United States and Canada.

Congratulations on a job well done!
