New Business Creating Jobs in Knoxville

New plumbing company owner is drawn to Knoxville for its community feel. Now his company is creating new jobs and hopes for continued expansion.

Knoxville, TN (November 4, 2015) – For more than 20 years, Garrett Cardwell lived and worked in the Northeast. He worked for large companies focusing on plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling. He always wanted something more, though. He wanted his own business, focused on serving the community in a place he loved. Cardwell and his wife visited many cities and when they visited Knoxville, they immediately knew it would be home. “We were drawn to Knoxville for its beauty, the lifestyle, friendly people and it is a place where we are comfortable sharing our beliefs,” said Cardwell.

Now Cardwell has opened Benjamin Franklin Plumbing®, serving the greater Knoxville area. The company does complete residential plumbing service including repairs, maintenance and replacement. He just hired two plumbers and hopes to create additional jobs as he expands his operations and the company grows. Cardwell feels working in the skilled trades industry and creating jobs is an important community service.

“At some time, everyone will need a trusted plumber. We want to provide a higher standard of plumbing work. All our plumbers are background checked, wear neat and clean uniforms, work in a neat and clean manner and are committed to customer service. We also invest in training our team and keeping up with the latest industry standards. It’s all to benefit our customers,” adds Cardwell.
