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, Airserve, Five Star Paining, 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.
