Metro Rod (franchise)

Metro Rod is the expert in commercial drainage and plumbing solutions, offering customers a local and national service 24/7/365. Metro Rod approached Refresh as it wanted to increase its brand awareness in the commercial sector and nationally whilst recruiting potential franchise owners.

Refresh needed to be mindful of the way in which a franchise business operates and ensure the PR activity could include support for all franchises in the network.
