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.

With over 270 possible Sunburst Electric franchise locations nationwide, the perfect fit for you is out there.
Our pre-selected locations are known as “Zones”. Purchasing a zone will allow a franchisee to trade and market in that area. We have based the designated zones as per research that was conducted by a research consulting firm.
A franchisee can purchase a maximum of 2 zones at a time, purchasing multiple zones will enable the franchisee to receive a discounted price on the other zones.
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:
- Cape Town
- Hout Bay
- Jeffery’s Bay
- Port Elizabeth
- East London
- King Williams Town
- Durban South
- Richards Bay
- Rustenburg North East
- Rustenburg South West

About The Brand
Since Brian Cumins founded Cash Converters in Perth, Western Australia in 1984, the Cash Converters chain has grown exponentially into a multi-million dollar international business with more than 750 stores in 22 countries, and growing.
Cash Converters has pioneered the transformation of the buying and selling of pre-owned goods, and offers an exceptional franchise opportunity which provides franchisees with an internationally proven, recession-resilient business model for achieving real wealth.
A Cash Converters store offers multiple revenue streams providing income from the retail floor and our unique financial services, making this a sustainable franchise that offers the cash you need to live the life you want.
Whatever happens in the world, people will always need access to cash, whether they’re selling their belongings, loaning money or just looking to save on a great bargain.
The Cash Converters business model is based on the principle that we provide consumers in the communities we serve with access to cash through a number of different products and services that suit their personal and financial circumstances.
A Cash Converters store is divided into two distinct areas: retailing and financial services.
This gives franchisees the security of three revenue streams:
- Retail floor: specialising in the selling of quality second-hand household goods
- Cash Advance: secured lending against the customer’s valuables (pawnbroking)
- PayDay Advance and 1 | 2 | 3 : unsecured loans against a customer’s salary
A store development manager spends a month with the franchisee prior to opening their store and assists with setting up the business, recruiting and training staff, as well as stocking the store.
Ideal Franchisee Profile
The following are some of the selection criteria that Cash Converters consider when deciding on awarding a franchise:
The Cash Converters model requires an owner-operator franchisee, with significant financial investment combined with a hardworking, hands-on approach to running a customer-orientated business.
