Father and daughter team join Drain Doctor

The Drain Doctor franchise has announced that Craig Benton, the owner of a successful Guildford cleaning business, and his daughter Coral have joined forces to take on a franchise business of Drain Doctor Plumbing offering emergency plumbing and drain repairs to commercial and domestic customers throughout Guildford, Basingstoke and the surrounding towns and villages.

Craig, who has run his own domestic cleaning company for the past 16 years, recently took the decision to expand his business to include drain and guttering cleaning. Craig said: “Having decided to offer a drain and gutter cleaning service I wanted to take the business one step further and offer a full drain repair service. I realised that this would take a lot of training and expertise. The best place to get this is with Drain Doctor by taking on its Guildford franchise. Despite the recession I felt that the time was right to further expand my business with a tried and tested formula.”

According to the information provided by the company, Craig purchased the business from the existing Drain Doctor franchisee David Nicholson. David has been with Drain Doctor since its inception in 1993 and is now retiring. Craig said: “We aim to continue to give businesses and householders in Guildford, Basingstoke and the surrounding area the same ‘dazzling’ level of service in plumbing and drainage that David has been providing for the past 15 years and which Drain Doctor provides across the rest of the country.”

Launched in the United Kingdom in 1993, Drain Doctor Plumbing has become one of the country's largest emergency plumbing and drain repair services. It now provides a 24 hour a day, 365 days a year service across the country with each franchise area such as Guildford run as an independent business. (kbp)
