Sunburst Electric – The Electrical Contracting Franchise

Vital Stats

About Sunburst Electric

Sunburst Electric is an electrical contracting franchise which will service the residential and commercial markets, by offering repairs, upgrades and installations, while delivering high customer satisfaction by getting the job done right the first time. Our courteous technicians respect the home and family of their customers by providing attention to detail that ensures quality and safe work. No matter what the electrical contracting service customers need, Sunburst Electric has the power to make things better! At Sunburst Electric, we commit ourselves to providing modern operations, processes and business systems that can easily be replicated. We empower hard working entrepreneurs to achieve their financial and personal goals.

Let’s start at the beginning

The rights to sell Mr. Electric in South Africa were purchased in 2015. Mr Electric originates from the USA and is known as a global franchise organisation which provides electrical installation and repair services. Mr. Electric is a subsidiary of The Dwyer Group, Inc., the holding company of a family of service franchises which consists of Mr. Rooter Plumbing, AireServ, Five Star Painting, Mr. Handyman & Mr. Appliance, among others.

Unfortunately, the Mr. Electric name is registered to another entity in South Africa, therefore the franchise used the alternative name Sunburst Electric. The franchise system has been in operation since 1994 and with a huge gap in the South African market for excellent customer service in the electrical industry, it made absolute sense to launch this well known, global electrical contracting franchise on South African soil.
