PRESS RELEASE

BALA CYNWYD, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Susquehanna Private Capital, LLC (“SPC”) today announced an investment in Premium Service Brands (“PSB” or the “Company”), a leading Charlottesville, Virginia-based franchisor of multi-brand home services with a specialty in home improvement brands. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Premium Service Brands partners with franchisees to provide comprehensive training, sophisticated technology, and cross-branded support for every step of their nascent home service business.

Today, PSB’s portfolio includes unique companies across seven in-demand service areas, including 360° Painting, ProLift Garage Doors, Handyman Pro, Maid Right, Kitchen Wise, Renew Crew and Rubbish Works. PSB currently supports over 200 franchise partners across the U.S. and Canada.

With funding from SPC, Premium Service Brands will continue to strengthen its presence in its core lines of business while expanding into the rapidly growing home services industry. Mr. Flick will remain in his role as Chief Executive Officer alongside the existing PSB management team.

“Premium Service Brands presents a compelling opportunity to invest in a growing multi-brand franchisor within the attractive home services industry,” said Kyle Squillario, Co-Head at SPC. “We are pleased to partner with entrepreneur and operator Paul Flick and his team as PSB accelerates its development and franchise expansion plans.”
