Founded in 1998, Clockwork Home Services, Inc. (formerly VenVest Inc.) establishes and builds nationally branded franchises for the home services contractor market. Led by a senior management team comprised of entrepreneurs with collective expertise in marketing, branding and franchising for home services, Clockwork aims to build national brands for nearly all services that are performed in or around the home. Clockwork provides contractors with extensive training to enhance both customer services practices and technical acumen while also providing tools for better business management.

Currently, the company has franchises for the plumbing, HVAC and electrical industries - Benjamin Franklin the Punctual Plumber® , One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® and Mister Sparky® respectively. As of December 2008, there were 250 Benjamin Franklin Franchisees, 246 One Hour Air Franchisees and 81 Mister Sparky Franchisees.

Contractors that want Clockwork Home Service's help in growing their business and increasing profitability but are not yet ready to forgo their identity can become Affinity Group members. As members, contractors have access to the same business process tools and technical training as franchisees but keep their name and brand identity.
In addition to one Affinity Group for each of its existing franchised brands, Clockwork also supports roofers; members of all four groups currently total nearly 1,100.

The advantages to contractors of being a Clockwork franchisee are numerous. In addition to teaching contractors how to generate greater revenue in the most efficient way, Clockwork offers more freedom and enjoyment as well as the same kind of benefits and retirement programs available at large corporations. Clockwork contractors have access to state-of-the-art, private label equipment at affordable prices through the company's wholesale distributor BuyMax. Through Clockwork systems and business process software applications, contractors can sidestep the types of "business surprises" that can plague an individual small business owner. And Clockwork's robust marketing and communications efforts ensure strong brand affinity and high visibility wherever a franchise is located.

Customer service is the dominant and defining theme for all Clockwork franchisees and Affinity Group members. Through various company-run training programs, contractors and small business owners are instilled with the ability to provide superior technical service in a manner that is respectful of the customer's home, budget and time. Clockwork also provides extensive technical training through The Success Academy™.

As a result, Clockwork contractors are punctual and provide fair and consistent pricing options for services rendered. Homeowners that use Clockwork contractors do so with the full confidence that they are inviting into their home a trustworthy, highly capable technician who will get it right the first time around. Homeowners also have the comfort of knowing that all work performed by a Clockwork contractor is backed by a full guarantee.

The Clockwork philosophy embraces the importance of Time - the homeowner's and the contractor's. With this in mind, Clockwork continues to expand its network of franchises nationwide, delivering maximum levels of customer and technical service and, in the process helping small business owners and contractors gain a measure of financial comfort, success and happiness.
