Organic growth & acquisition of new businesses

Europe is a market with a lot of potential for the Dwyer Group. Being active with multiple brands in the UK, Germany, Austria and Portugal, we are growing our business units organically through direct franchising. Our goal is to repeat the success we have had with our concepts in the USA and Canada. We are constantly looking to acquire new business units that complete and extend our service portfolio. With a tremendous area left for expansion and a lot of thriving markets, Europe will play a big role in the future growth of the Dwyer Group.
