Dallas — Fireman’s Contractors, Inc. (FRCN), a commercial contractor offering franchises and commercial services in the pavement and parking lot maintenance industry, announced a successful launch of its first Fireman’s Contractors franchise – “Station 1.” The franchise was launched in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex and began operations on July 1, 2012. The company held an official ribbon cutting ceremony on July 14th, 2012, to commemorate the event.
Renee Gilmore, CEO of Fireman’s Contractors, stated: “It’s an exciting time for our Company as we are having tremendous interest shown by new potential franchisees. Launching of our first franchise has bred excitement and helped expose our franchise opportunity to other quality individuals and entrepreneurs. Mr. Fred Hermosillo, who has almost 20 years of experience in the pavement industry, seized the opportunity to own the first franchise, and we both are looking forward to Station 1 being a great success.”
Part of the support Fireman’s offers its new franchisees is representation at the AATC – AAGD Business Exchange Trade Show.
