Having spent over 20 years running his own pubs, clubs and hotels in the UK, businessman Carl Butterfield (pictured) has embarked on a new journey by purchasing the Drain Doctor Gloucestershire franchise.

With an existing team of five technicians and four support staff, Carl will taking over the reins and continue to work with Ruth Ryder, office manager, who has been keeping the business running effectively for the past year.

Already under Carl's management, the business has made investments in new vans, specialist equipment for the technicians and moved to new premises in June 2018.

Prior to the acquisition of his new plumbing and drainage franchise, Carl wanted a fresh challenge and business opportunity in a totally different sector from hospitality, where he previously managed over 100 employees across his premises.

Not wanting to start a new business again from scratch, Carl chose to go down the franchising route and make an investment in a sector which was growing and had lots of potential. Drain Doctor fitted the bill, particularly as it was part of the Dwyer Group, one of the world’s largest parent companies of home service brands, with a network of over 3,200 franchisees worldwide.

Carl said: “I am so excited to be the franchise owner of Drain Doctor Gloucestershire and am very fortunate to have such a great team already in place to help with the day to day running of the business. Having struggled to find reliable, trustworthy tradespeople for our premises, I wanted to find a sector where there is a shortage of professional experts and that would give me a long-term future and opportunity to buy multi-unit franchises from the same organisation. Having The Dwyer Group® there definitely gives me peace of mind and confidence, and knowing there is wider support, expertise and resources available, was one of the main reasons why I chose the Drain Doctor franchise.”

Pierre Jeannes, Vice President of Operations for Drain Doctor said: ”We’re proud and delighted to welcome Carl to our network and are looking forward to supporting him throughout his exciting new journey with us.”
