Powering Down 3 Myths About the Electrician Franchise Industry


Time and time again, Mister Sparky’s franchise owners celebrate the advantages of working in the electrical home service industry and the advantages of choosing to franchise in it. When looking at which franchise to do business with, it’s best to make sure you have all the facts.

Today, the team at Mister Sparky is here to shed light on some of the most common myths we hear regarding electricians and the electrical industry and what the truth is:

Myth #1: You Have to Be an Electrician to Start an Electrical Franchise

Just like other home service franchises, you don’t need decades of education and hands-on experience to open your own electrical franchise. While knowing a bit about electrical operations, safety, and other electrical certifications are definitely a plus, they’re not required.

Every day, Mister Sparky works with hundreds of owners that have known they always wanted to work in this industry, plus dozens of other owners that had no idea they’d end up here! Either way, no prior knowledge or experience is needed – making it an excellent choice for the right motivated individual.

Myth #2: Working Around Electricity is Dangerous

While no one can deny that electricity isn’t dangerous and some risk is taken on when working with electricity, working with the right tools, processes, and team is key to keeping the danger at a minimum.

Mister Sparky is the safest electrical company there is. From the ground up, our business is built on ensuring our customers are safe, as well as our electricians! Whether that’s our extensive training, proven processes, or high-quality tools and supplies, working in the electricity field isn’t as dangerous as you may assume.

Myth #3: The Electrical Home Service Industry is Dying

We’re not sure where this one comes from, but it can’t be farther from the truth. The electrical industry isn’t going anywhere. Not only has it been around so long, but our world also runs on it! Even during a worldwide pandemic, electrical companies continued to stay busy. Whether it’s completing repairs, rewriting, or simple maintenance requests, there is never a lack of work for any of our teams to complete. As a matter of fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that the overall demand for electricians will increase by 10% by 2028.
