WACO, Texas (May 6, 2013) – Dina Dwyer-Owens, Chairwoman and CEO of Neighborly, formerly Dwyer Group, will appear on a special episode of CBS’s hit reality show “Undercover Boss” titled “Undercover Boss: Epic Bosses” on Friday, May 17 at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT. In this special “Undercover Boss” episode, the Emmy award-winning series will catch up with many of the particularly memorable bosses from all four seasons to see how their experiences on the show impacted their lives and their companies.
In January 2012, Dwyer-Owens originally appeared on “Undercover Boss,” disguised as Faith Brown in company uniforms posing as a potential trainee in male-dominated trade industries. For Dwyer-Owens, her original experience on the show was a hallmark occasion to fulfill a long-held dream to ride in service vans in the field and see if the Code of Values™ has penetrated the front lines of Neighborly’s seven franchise brands: Aire Serv®, Glass Doctor®, Mr. Appliance®, Mr. Electric®, Mr. Rooter®, Rainbow International® and The Grounds Guys®.
Now viewers will get to see what has happened since appearing on the show, including Dwyer-Owens’s heartfelt scholarship and recruiting program to attract more women to the trades services on a national level.
Dwyer-Owens has championed Neighborly Code of Values and its themes of Respect, Integrity, Customer Focus and Having Fun in the Process as a foundation for the company’s success. Across the system’s 1,600 franchises is a world of plumbers, electricians, landscapers and more. The franchise family makes some 2 million residential and commercial service calls each year and celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2011.
Neighborly, based in Waco, Texas, is a holding company of seven franchise businesses, each selling and supporting a different franchise under the following service marks: Aire Serv®, Glass Doctor®, The Grounds Guys™, Mr. Appliance®, Mr. Electric®, Mr. Rooter® (Drain Doctor in the UK and Portugal), and Rainbow International®. Collectively, these independent franchise concepts offer customers world-wide a broad base of residential and commercial services. In addition, Dwyer operates glass shops in New England under the Portland Glass brand name. Neighborly is a portfolio company of TZP Group LLC, a private equity firm based in New York that focuses on control investments in business and consumer services companies with enterprise values generally up to $200 million.
