Three home services brands have strong momentum going into 2015

More than a dozen new franchise territories have recently been added to the Direct Energy® family of brands. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning®, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing® and Mister Sparky® electric continue to show significant growth. One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning just ranked number one in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) services category in Entrepreneur magazine’s 2015 Franchise 500®. Mister Sparky electric was ranked number one in the electrical services category and Benjamin Franklin Plumbing ranked second in the plumbing category, on the magazine’s annual top franchise list.
