Larry and Delynn Murfin of Sapulpa recently purchased a Mr. Rooter franchise, expanding their plumbing business, City Wide Plumbing Inc., 702 N. 9th St., which they have owned for 15 years.
The Murfins do commercial and residential plumbing and new construction plumbing, but they were looking to expand the service side of their business. They will continue doing construction as City Wide Plumbing, but will focus on commercial and residential plumbing with their Mr. Rooter of Green Country franchise.
Larry Murfin is the company president and handles many of the administrative responsibilities. As vice president, Delynn is also the secretary and office manager; as well as the support system for the president. Their son Jared also works as a service technician.
Upon purchasing the franchise, the Murfins attended a five-day training course on business practices, customer service techniques and marketing methods.
The Mr. Rooter of Green Country franchise will hold a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, Nov. 30.
