Parent Company Overview
One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® is owned by Clockwork Home Services Inc., in Sarasota, Florida. Founded in 1998, Clockwork Home Services, Inc. (formerly VenVest Inc.) establishes and builds nationally branded franchises for the home services contractor market. Led by a senior management team comprised of entrepreneurs with collective expertise in marketing, branding and franchising for home services, Clockwork aims to build national brands for nearly all services that are performed in or around the home. Clockwork provides contractors with extensive training to enhance both customer services practices and technical acumen while also providing tools for better business management.
The Clockwork philosophy embraces the importance of Time - the homeowner's and the contractor's. With this in mind, Clockwork continues to expand its network of franchises nationwide, delivering maximum levels of customer and technical service and, in the process helping small business owners and contractors gain a measure of financial comfort, success and happiness.
Currently, the company has franchises for the plumbing, HVAC and electrical industries - Benjamin Franklin the Punctual Plumber® , One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® and Mister Sparky® respectively. As of January 2009, there were 196 Benjamin Franklin Franchisees, 219 One Hour Air Franchisees and 86 Mister Sparky Franchisees.
The advantages to contractors of being a Clockwork franchisee are numerous. In addition to teaching contractors how to generate greater revenue in the most efficient way, Clockwork offers more freedom and enjoyment as well as the same kind of benefits and retirement programs available at large corporations. Clockwork contractors have access to state-of-the-art, private label equipment at affordable prices through the company's wholesale distributor BuyMax. Through Clockwork systems and business process software applications, contractors can sidestep the types of "business surprises" that can plague an individual small business owner. And Clockwork's robust marketing and communications efforts ensure strong brand affinity and high visibility wherever a franchise is located.
