During the period from January through December 2008, Clockwork added 74 new plumbing, air conditioning and heating, and electrical franchises.

In 2008, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing added 21 new franchises for a total of 249 territories served, and One Hour Air Conditioning & Heating added 28 for a total of 245.
