The one-stop-shop remodeler is seeking to capitalize on this growth, announcing 19 additional available territories across the state as it continues to award franchise opportunities to passionate, eager entrepreneurs.

Re-Bath San Diego joins three other thriving territories in major markets across California. New owners Bill Thompson and Fil Esquibel opened in Northern San Diego in April 2022 and most recently in Southern San Diego in July 2022, making up the entire DMA. Thompson brings with him 17 years of combined institutional sales and management experience, in addition to an extensive financial and accounting background. Esquibel has been an Account Executive for CBS for the past eight years, working with both local and national accounts on marketing and advertising needs. Together, their complementary backgrounds set the foundation for strong business acumen as they pursue entrepreneurship.
