Frequently Asked Questions

I Want to Acquire a Franchise. What Should I Do?

We're glad to hear that you want to join the Mister Sparky family! First, let's find out if you're the right fit. Go ahead and complete our discovery process, beginning with a simple phone call. The call will provide you with specific information and ensure you are passionate and a good fit for our brand.

What Is Involved in the Discovery Process?

Our franchise development team takes our potential owners through the process, including having your initial informational phone call, receiving a Franchise Disclosure Document to read through, and speaking with one of our franchising experts. Past that point, you'll be invited to our offices for a Discovery Day, allowing you to speak with current and past franchise owners, reviewing the provisions of our FDD one more time, and signing your agreement. Then, we work with you to develop a plan for converting your electrical business and train you in our brand, operations, and systems.

How Do I Know If Franchising Is Right for Me?

Do any of the following descriptions sound familiar? Franchising might be the change you need:

  • Your team at work depends solely on you
  • You put in incredibly long hours on a monthly basis
  • Your business won't run without you for a day
  • There are more tasks on your plate than you can manage
  • Vacations are not possible no matter how hard you work
  • You already own an electrician services business
  • You love heading up your own team and calling the shots
  • You are looking for a proven system to make business better

How Are Territories Awarded?

Every Mister Sparky franchisee receives a protected service area or territory (subject to certain limitations) made up of several zip codes. To find out if your preferred territory is available or if you're a good fit for franchise ownership, request more information through our website!

Have You Been Consistently Successful?

Absolutely! There’s a reason that Entrepreneur Magazine has named us the #1 Electrical Franchise in their annual Franchise 500 List for the last four years.

What Are the Investment Costs of a Franchise?

A Conversion Franchise’s total estimated initial investment ranges from $68,555 to $231,732. The $33,000 in Initial Fees applies to a franchisee that signs the Franchise Agreement, and has a territory whose population is approximately 200,000. Territories may differ in size. A Territory of approximately 200,000 is the required minimum size for a new franchisee. For a territory with a population greater than 200,000, the Initial Fees owed will be $33,000 plus $165 for each additional 1,000 of population above 200,000.

Will There Be Training / Support Provided to Franchisees?

Yes! All of our franchise owners receive extensive training and resources. Whether you are an established contractor or a brand-new entrepreneur, you'll benefit from our training in marketing, customer engagement, recruitment and retention, and technology. We offer support in the form of marketing tools, new employee training programs, and integrated systems to help franchisees make their work more effective and maximize their success.
