The value of Neighborly's Franchise system

A Family of Top Franchises

At Neighborly, we are proud to create paths to successful business ownership in the home service industry. More than 30 years ago, we began as Dwyer Group with just one brand. Now we have a vast home service franchise system and support thousands of franchisees. We offer opportunities within top franchises in the US and international markets—our experienced home service brands. If you have the passion, we’re here to help you find your opportunity.

How do we nurture award-winning businesses? We take care of people. We believe in providing a better way to conduct business and a higher quality of life for our franchisees. When you become a Neighborly franchise owner, you have access to a wealth of business resources, from training programs to marketing strategies to dedicated coaches. You realize that it’s possible—and encouraged—to have a flexible schedule and find work-life balance. You have a nationally recognized brand and plenty of mentors, yet you are an independent leader with the power to uniquely help your community.

Our Mission, Vision, and Values

Though we are a large franchise system, our culture is close-knit with a small-family-business atmosphere. Because we nurture relationships among our franchisees and invite them to participate in corporate-level decisions, we have been successful at developing an effective franchise business model that works well for everyone involved. We attribute our continued growth to this culture, and to teaching and upholding our company's values.

Our founder, Don Dwyer Sr, began chasing a dream in New York when he sold his cherished convertible to purchase a paper route and pay his way through college. After college, Don purchased a franchise that marketed and sold management and motivational materials. He was so successful that the franchisor recruited him to join the home office team in Waco, Texas, where he quickly rose to the position of senior vice president.

Don then seized the opportunity to create his own franchise, Rainbow International Carpet Dyeing and Cleaning Company, which evolved into Rainbow International®, Neighborly’s flagship brand and one of the world's largest property restoration franchises. Today, Don Dwyer's legacy lives on through the top franchises in the service industry, our proud Neighborly brands.

Vet Fran: Supporting Individuals Who Have Served Our Country

Veteran FranchiseSince 1991, Neighborly has helped transitioning military personnel and current veterans achieve their dreams of business ownership. The Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative (VetFran program) was established by the founder of Neighborly soon after the Gulf War. This national program is a voluntary effort of International Franchise Association (IFA) member companies to encourage franchise ownership by offering financial incentives to honorably discharged veterans. We are honored that more than 1,700 veterans across 400 franchise brands have found opportunities with top franchises through the VetFran program.

Additionally, we at Neighborly created the Program for Assisting Veteran Entrepreneurship (P.A.V.E.), which provides a discount off the minimum initial franchise fee (as per the FDD) and special vendor incentives for qualifying veterans. More than 160 veterans have participated in this home service franchise program.


Let us help you reach your goals with our established franchise system, providing you with excellent training, support, and coaching. We take the guesswork out of running your business.
