Growth Through Acquisition

Authority Brands has grown over the last 3 years through acquisition of strong brands across the home service space.

We choose the verticals we move in to based on several criteria:

  • Authority Brands selects market leaders in highly attractive markets that are stable and growing.

  • We focus on low disruption risk – areas that will not be upset by innovation in technology or changes to economic condition. They’re essential services and services people do not or cannot do for themselves.

  • Most critically, our ideal brands are ones that have strong unit-level economics and allow franchise owners to build large businesses.

Essential Home Services Customers Trust

Though Authority Brands offers a lot of support to our franchise owners to ensure their success, the true reason our brands are so successful is because they provide reliable, essential services that people need. Whether customers are looking for last-minute plumbing services, need a fix for their pool, or are seeking industry-leading mosquito control, they know that an Authority Brands company can always be trusted.

The History of Authority Brands

In September of 2017, The Cleaning Authority was purchased from PNC Riverarch by Apax Partners. With this change in private equity ownership, the leadership team and ownership team of The Cleaning Authority saw opportunity to bring its platform to more home service franchise brands.

With the first acquisition of Homewatch CareGivers in September of 2017, Authority Brands was formed. Within the next three months, Authority Brands acquired two outdoor brands, America’s Swimming Pool Company and Mosquito Squad. In spring of 2019, Authority Brands closed its largest acquisition to date and welcomed three brands: One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, and Mister Sparky Electric. In September and November 2020, just two short years after forming, and in the midst of a global pandemic, Authority Brands completed its respective eighth and ninth acquisitions with Monster Tree Service and STOP Restoration. In February 2021, Authority Brands added its 10th home service franchise brand, DoodyCalls. In January 2022 we added our 11th and 12th brands, Color World Housepainting and Woofie's.

As we continue to grow, it is our goal to provide every service a homeowner could need, from the roof line to the property line. We are always looking to add new brands that meet our investment criteria.
