Metro Rodís parent company celebrates a decade of success
The group behind Metro Rod is celebrating 10 years of success with some of the UKís most successful franchises.
Franchise Brands PLC, the international franchisor behind successful UK franchises including Metro Rod, is celebrating its 10th year of business. The group has more than 450 franchisees that operate in 12 countries under its five brands: Metro Rod, Metro Plumb, ChipsAway, Ovenclean and Barking Mad.
The group was set up 10 years ago and allows its franchises to benefit from each other by sharing the same head office support teams. It acquired Metro Rod in 2017 and although the drain cleaning franchise had already experienced success under its own steam, itís gone from strength to strength under the guidance of Franchise Brands.
Executive Chairman, Stephen Hemsley, said:
ďIn a relatively short time, we have created a high-quality portfolio of brands with significant critical mass in the franchising sector. I am very proud of our success and would like to acknowledge the huge contribution of our franchisees, who are the bedrock of our business, and our staff who work so tirelessly to support our franchisees and help them grow their businesses. I am very excited about what the next 10 years might hold!Ē
Franchise Brands recently added to the Metro family by awarding its first independent franchise license for a dedicated Metro Plumb franchise. Itís a testament to the leadership of the group, as itís been able to help Metro develop a previously small subdivision of its business into a profitable independent venture of its own.
Julia Choudhury, Corporate Development Director for Franchise Brands PLC, added:
ďOur focus is on established franchise brands which can benefit from our shared support services such as franchise support, marketing and IT, as well as our management expertise and experience. We look forward to welcoming additional brands into the Franchise Brands family in the future."
