Drain Doctor celebrates 20 years in business

Peterborough-based Drain Doctor is planning a year of celebrations to mark its milestone achievement of 20 years in business. The company was launched in the UK in 1993 by husband and wife team Freddie and Jan Mitman, who are still at the helm today.

Like many franchisors, they started with just a single ‘test’ area before starting to sell franchises to motivated individuals who wanted to build their own businesses with the benefits of a bigger brand. The company swiftly expanded and Drain Doctor Plumbing now has a very well-established nationwide franchise network.

The company is a full member of the British Franchise Association and Jan, franchise sales director, was recently elected as chair of the bfa’s Midlands Forum.

Company chairman Freddie Mitman said: “The continuing success of Drain Doctor is testament to the hard work of our franchisees as they develop their businesses.

“Particularly over the past few years, when the economy generally has been in poor shape, our franchisees have demonstrated that with the Drain Doctor system it is possible to grow a profitable franchise business.

“We are delighted to be able to mark our first 20 years in business and are now looking forward to the next two decades!”

Drain Doctor franchisees across the UK and Ireland, together with their customers, will be invited to join in the celebrations as the 20th anniversary year gets under way.
