Austin American-Statesman - - BUSINESS - By Gary Dinges gdinges@states­man.com

A Waco-based home ser­vices com­pany with lo­ca­tions world­wide is ramp­ing up its pres­ence in the Austin area, open­ing new fran­chises fo­cused on lawn care, air con­di­tion­ing and ap­pli­ance re­pairs and elec­tri­cal and plumb­ing work.

Mr. Rooter, part of the Dwyer Group, re­cently opened its 19th Texas lo­ca­tion, serv­ing Travis and Wil­liamson coun­ties — and plans to add up to five more in the mar­ket, the com­pany said.

The Dwyer Group has about 1,600 fran­chisees, with 1,300 of them in the U.S. and Canada, ac­cord­ing to Dina Dwyer-Owens, whose fa­ther founded the com­pany. Overseas lo­ca­tions in­clude a clus­ter in the United King­dom.

“We still have a lot of room left for ex­pan­sion in the U.S. and we’re look­ing for the right peo­ple to rep­re­sent us,”
