BAIT&SWITCH

Example- We pay you $5.00 per minute for every minute were late. In reality it's added to the bill.

Example- FREE ESTIMATES. In reality it's added to the bill.

those guys are a bunch of corporate idots. I admit that i sat down with one of there sales reps when i first got into business. They get if i recall right, 10% off the top of everything you do. Not to mention what it cost to get started. Not for me. They are not welcome here. Stay away, and take that unlicesned bath fitter company with you.

Was 5% unless it changed. If you don't hit that magic number which then allows them to take out that 5%, then its $1500.

Now all the franchisees have all that marketing material that is no good and will have to invest in new.

In my part of the country Ben Franklin techs are mostly drain cleaners with limited plumbing ability and very little real plumbing experience, but they do sell some jobs, I am friends with several inspectors in my county and its always entertaining to listen to story's about what the big service company's screw up when they actually try to do a real plumbers job 2ND rough or 1ST rough etc,some of these techs dont even understand sleeving a pipe through a footer
