Three residential plumbing, heating, cooling and electrical service contracting business owners are opening their doors to fellow contractors this summer. They will share their secrets and every aspect of their operations with owners and upper managers of independent PHCE contracting companies. It’s three days of intense mentoring and sharing of tangible strategies that have led to documented success.

The companies are members of Nexstar Network, a business development and best practices organization delivering comprehensive business training, systems and support to independent home service plumbing, HVAC and electrical professionals.

Peer Group meetings set the standard and raise the bar. Typically for Nexstar members only, these Peer Group Meetings will be open to a limited number of non-members.

They calculate their percentage of the total jobs that were run for the month and multiply that by the remaining overhead to calculate their overhead burden for that month.”
