Rancho Murieta, CA, United States, 2007/02/14 - 1st Propane® Franchising, Inc., announced today the start of a major expansion plan for its franchise program - 1st-Propane.com.
Company Targets Six Northern California Counties
1st Propane will embark on an aggressive growth plan aimed at adding 200 new franchise locations over the next five years. During the first part of 2007, 1st Propane will focus on expansion on the West Coast, beginning with six counties in northern California: Butte, Calaveras, El Dorado, Placer, Tehama and Tuolumne. Each of these counties has been determined to have over 10,000 current propane users and strong economic potential for franchise locations.
Each 1st Propane franchise is individually owned and operated within the local community. Franchises service residential homeowners and small commercial businesses that purchase bulk propane to heat their homes and buildings, heat water and cook their meals. Services include tank rental and installation as well as bulk delivery of propane gas.
Bill Thacher, founder and CEO of 1st Propane Franchising, says, "We have created a strong, tested system to develop successful franchises. Since all our franchises are locally owned and operated, our customers receive personalized, highly responsive customer service traditionally found from hometown providers while benefiting from the management, training and safety support of the national franchise program."
All new expansion franchises are currently available for purchase. Interested parties can visit our web site for more information on financial requirements and to fill out an online inquiry.
