Dwyer Group Story
Based in Waco, Texas, Dwyer Group opened its doors in 1981 with only one brand and has grown to become the holding company of eleven service-based franchise organizations: Aire Serv®, Five Star Painting®, Glass Doctor®, Molly Maid®, Mr. Appliance®, Mr. Electric®, Mr. Handyman®, Mr. Rooter®, Protect Painters®, Rainbow International® and The Grounds Guys®. Together, these brands provide a diverse array of specialty services through more than 2,500 franchises in ten countries.
Don Dwyer, Sr. began what would eventually become Dwyer Group when he developed Rainbow International. He envisioned a company that would specialize in buying and building related businesses that would provide high-quality residential and light commercial services. That vision continues to be implemented today by the company's leadership team, led by President and CEO, Mike Bidwell.
Dwyer Group believes new franchise owners are attracted to the company's franchise opportunities because of the depth of support services; the commitment to the company's mission, vision and Code of Values; the established reputation of its management team and the success of its franchise systems.
Dwyer Group is an active member in the International Franchise Association (IFA), Canadian Franchise Association (CFA) and is a founding company of the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran).
