Sunburst Electric 200

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 Neighborly™– the holding company of a family of service franchises consisting of Mr Rooter Plumbing, AireServ, Five Star Painting, Mr Handyman and Mr Appliance (among others).

We changed the name from Mr Electric to Sunburst Electric to reflect our enthusiastic and energetic approach to helping our customers. The franchise system has been in operation since 1994. With a huge gap in the South African market for excellent customer service in the electrical industry, it made sense to launch an established, global electrical contracting franchise on South African soil.

Why choose Sunburst Electric?

With over 30 years experience, franchisees can be confident that Sunburst Electric is a globally-proven franchise system. Local and international support is readily available to all franchisees; from operational and marketing support to day-to-day business support. We focus on providing expert electrical service that fully satisfies our customers’ needs.

Complete turnkey solution
Joining Sunburst Electric as a franchisee means that you will get a complete turnkey solution. The set-up cost is inclusive of equipment, hardware, software, marketing material, training as well as a fully-branded vehicle. The great part is that, as a franchisee, you could leave Head Office after your training and start working immediately without delaying business operations.
