The national franchise of Mister Sparky Electrical was founded in 1996 in Atlanta, Ga., with the unique name of “Mister Sparky” derived from the common use of the term “sparky” or “sparks,” which means electricians, in company founder Patrick Kennedy’s native Ireland.

The name is backed by a wealth of positive notoriety. Mister Sparky is currently ranked by Entrepreneur magazine as one of the top 500 franchise companies and ranked No. 1 franchise in the Electrical Services category (2014). Franchise Timesranks Mister Sparky as one of the top 500 franchise chains in worldwide sales (#368 in 2013).

It’s a standard that Tony Zack, owner of the Myrtle Beach-based Mister Sparky® franchise, lives up to, 24/7. Zack was born and raised in Georgetown, S.C., where he honed his skills in the electrical and supply trade, hands-on, as well as throughout Florence and Hartsville, S.C., since 1995.

An alumnus of The Citadel, Zack bought the local Mister Sparky franchise in 2010, with the desire to raise the level of standards he’d normally seen in the industry – standards that weren’t good enough for Zack. He wanted to offer franchise standards that raised the bar, including background checks, uncompromised service warranties and a higher level of quality and accountability for everyone involved.

“Yes, we are a franchise, but we’re locally owned, and I’m locally born and raised,” says Zack. “Others may claim they are locally based, but I’ve been local since forever. Regardless, our franchise requires us to maintain a high level of quality at all times, everywhere we go. Our number one priority is a happy customer.”

If plumbing issues arrive, Tony is also the owner and operator of a Benjamin Franklin Plumbing franchise here in Myrtle Beach. You can find more about the services they offer by visiting
