About the Franchise

Computer Mania was established in the Western Cape in 1991, when having a PC at home was still a dream for most of us. Since then it has grown into the largest independent IT retailer with branches in most major shopping Centres in the Western Cape with recent additions already open, or busy opening, in Gauteng.

Since 1991 the same management team has led Computer Mania and has accumulated a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the process. This allows us to continue growing and to keep up with the ever-changing IT environment.

Franchisee selection criteria

To receive the full benefit of the franchise system, franchisees must be willing to trade within the framework provided by the franchisor. Prior retail experience will be a definite advantage. Staying abreast of technological developments is critical and franchisees will benefit from a keen interest in computer related products.

Franchisee Training

We offer comprehensive inhouse training (initial and ongoing) for both franchisee and staff.

What makes a great Zone for a Sunburst Electric franchise?

A great Zone does not necessarily mean the biggest zone. A good zone would be classified as either a zone that has many households to potentially service or a zone that is high in terms of LSM (Living Standards Measure) as they have the disposable income for the service offering. Although, some zones may have a large number of households but the LSM may be lower making the zone good to invest in but not great. The same applies for a zone that may have fewer households but with a higher LSM.

Top Zones per Province:

Gauteng:

  • Sandton
  • Krugersdorp
  • Groenkloof
  • Randburg
  • Alberton
  • Bedfordview

Sunburst Electric – The Electrical Contracting Franchise

Sunburst Electric can open the door into franchising and empowering you to own your own business.

Entrepreneur

Published

sunburst-electrical-franchise

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 was renamed to Sunburst Electric. The franchise system has been in global 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.
