The guy in Teesside has but isn't it all a franchise. Maybe the franchisee has gone under but I don't know where that leaves the franchisors. Maybe an accountant could answer that

I thought if you bought a franchise and the organisation you bought it from went under you would be ok. Oh well live and learn.

I had a interview with them a few years ago. I didn't get a good vibe from that company.

Not surprised really. Their franchise costs were way too high, so the take up was poor. On top of that the set job rates were also high and so the franchisees were struggling to win jobs. I was taking jobs off a local MrE left right and centre through last year. I was usually about 2/3 his price and I thought I was getting good money for the jobs.

I was QS for the west london franchise a few years ago.

Met all the people in head office on some outings, including the big boss man (Clive I think).

Judging from their company ethics and pricing manuals..


good f**king riddance IMO.

Never understood the whole set up personally, 1 MrE I was talking to said you even had to pay a % on work you got yourself not just what they gave you. Did Mr E have national contracts?

Only dealings I ever had was a flood damaged property - a Mr electric had beenthere first and installed a temp supply.


RIGHT underneath where water was pouring into the garage. It was soaked. I laughed my head off, took pictures, got the builder and the chippys and the plasterer and the painters to have a look. And the gas bloke.

Very funny.
