Neighborly® Surpasses $4 Billion in Systemwide Sales Amid 2023 Filled with Historic Private Equity Activity

The company experienced significant achievements last year, highlighted by a multitude of territory acquisitions from leading private equity firms, and foreshadowing more growth in 2024 across its brands.

WACO, Texas (February 19, 2024)Neighborly®, the world's largest home services company, announced today during this year’s annual International Franchise Association (“IFA”) convention that it officially surpassed $4 billion in systemwide sales and 5,500 franchises globally in 2023, a milestone year during which the company’s continued success garnered an unparalleled wave of private equity investments across the global franchisor’s flagship brands. 

“The substantial private equity investments we've attracted across our flagship brands is a major achievement that reinforces the market's confidence in our strategic vision and highlights Neighborly and our brands as a valuable investment,” said Jon Shell, interim Chief Executive Officer of Neighborly.

The record-breaking year brought notable investments from multiple private equity sponsors:

“These transactions combined represent investments of more than $400 million by leading private equity sponsors are a testament to the growth potential in the residential services market, and the strength of the Neighborly brands and the entire Neighborly system,” added Shell. “Each one of them is looking to further penetrate existing markets, invest in new markets, and add additional Neighborly service brands across our diverse portfolio of 19 service verticals.”

Among the many factors that positioned Neighborly as so attractive to investors, the company accomplished another year of strong same-store sales growth and exceeded its franchise development targets selling a record-breaking 468 franchises globally in 2023. As Neighborly looks ahead, the existing strategy remains the roadmap, with a commitment to expanding the footprints of its service brands and driving awareness to strengthen its presence in key markets.

Other 2023 noteworthy developments include:

  • Launched version 2.0 of the Neighborly App aimed at providing customers with a frictionless experience beyond big search platforms by making it easier to find and schedule services specific to their needs, creating more cross-branding opportunities, and driving more leads.
  • Strengthened ties with the Veteran community by engaging existing Veteran Neighborly owners at a local level and establishing partnerships with organizations like the Service Academy Career Conference (SACC) and ZeroMils.

“Last year was also an extremely difficult and emotional time for so many of us with the sudden passing of our CEO, Mike Bidwell, in September,” added Shell. “Mike would have been extremely proud to see how this organization rallied together to achieve such great things. We miss Mike more than words can express and we will continue to carry his vision for Neighborly forward.”
