The Dwyer Group Inc., parent company of Glass Doctor, celebrated a record year of global growth in 2017 and expanded the network to an all-time high around the world, according to the company.
“This was another historic year for our organization,” said Mike Bidwell, president and CEO of Dwyer Group. “With 12 service verticals, we continued to build on our leadership position, launched Neighborly, our comprehensive home services platform, and awarded 300 new franchises and territory expansions to provide our professional services to more customers than ever.”
Dwyer Group completed two acquisitions in 2017:
- Bright & Beautiful, a home cleaning service based in the U.K., in April
- Countrywide Grounds Maintenance, a commercial grounds-keeping service based in the U.K., in May
The acquisitions, along with strong growth of existing service brands, have expanded the company’s overall roster to now include 17 franchise service brands and more than 2,800 franchise locations in nine countries. The company’s service brands account for more than $1.5 billion in annual system-wide sales and more than 700 employees across North America, the U.K and Germany. The company also broke ground this year on a new building at its Waco, Texas campus, which will house the growing support staff for our expanding franchise network.
