3 Reasons Why Z PLUMBERZ is a Standout Franchise Opportunity
A proven business model, a focus on education, and powerhouse support, makes Z PLUMBERZ an exceptional business investment
If we’ve learned anything from the recent pandemic, it’s that owning and operating an essential business is a best-bet investment. Essential businesses not only provide a service that we rely on a daily basis, but they are also less impacted by economic uncertainty. Fortunately, Z PLUMBERZ is an essential business, which puts our franchise owners in an advantageous position as home and property owners rely on plumbers day-in and day-out. Not only is plumbing one of the biggest expenses in a home, but if a pipe bursts, a sink clogs or a toilet overflows, homeowners have to act fast — or else their property can be damaged and life will become miserable quickly. As a result, consumers need plumbers who are professional and reliable to get the job done right in a timely manner.
This is where Z PLUMBERZ excels. Our compelling plumbing franchise stands out by providing an exceptional customer service experience. Unlike some independent owners in the industry, we pride ourselves on our transparency with clients, our consistent professionalism, and our work to demonstrate the value we bring to our customers at every step of the process. As the all-in-one experts for all things plumbing, sewers, and drains, Z PLUMBERZ franchise owners are highly trained to help home and business owners fix all of their plumbing problems, and educate them about their property along the way. As a result, Z PLUMBERZ franchise owners benefit from multiple lines of services and are able to help homeowners no matter how difficult a job may be.
“We define ourselves as retail plumbers,” says Matt O’Rourke, Brand President and Founder of Z PLUMBERZ. “A retail plumber works directly with the homeowner, educating them on the various products and technology available to them today. I believe that educating consumers is the most important thing for plumbers because we have a bad history. There are plenty of jokes about plumbers overcharging, not dressing properly, and not providing the customer with the information they need.”
Here are three additional reasons why you should join Z PLUMBERZ franchise family:
Our Turnkey Business Model is Designed for Growth
Z PLUMBERZ believes that all plumbing businesses should be successful and profitable. This is why we have designed a turnkey business model designed to maximize efficiency and profitability. To help with this, we have kept our initial and ongoing costs of ownership low. The initial investment to begin operations of a new Z PLUMBERZ franchise starts at $124,572. If you’re looking to convert your existing plumbing business, the estimated costs start at $107,556. Even better, Z PLUMBERZ has plenty of room for growth, not only for our franchise owners, but also as a national brand. As we continue to expand across the nation we are seeking service-minded entrepreneurs who not only want to own profitable plumbing businesses, but also make a difference in their community.
“Our mission is to help and support small plumbing companies that are struggling to take their businesses to the next level,” says Matt O’Rourke, Brand President and founder of Z PLUMBERZ. “We’ve put together a straightforward business model that offers customers what they need when they need it that can be duplicated over and over again, all while turning a profit. Even if you’re a great plumber, you might lack the resources in training and support. That’s where we come in. We’re going to work daily to ensure that your business has everything it needs to prosper over the long-term.”
Our Focus on Education
As a full-service retail plumber, Z PLUMBERZ takes the necessary time to educate homeowners about what options are available to help them save money and make their plumbing systems more efficient. Being able to educate our customers starts with our own in-house training. Whether you’re a first-time entrepreneur or want to convert your existing plumbing business, Z PLUMBERZ has developed an exceptional initial and ongoing training platform that emphasizes both technical and business training. This includes continuously educating and training all team members so that they can provide comprehensive solutions, as well as educate and engage with homeowners. As a result, Z PLUMBERZ franchise owners can win market share, ultimately becoming the plumbing expert their community relies on.
“Educating consumers is the most important thing for Z PLUMBERZ,” says O’Rourke. “Having the consumer educated as to what we’re doing and why we’re charging what we’re charging puts them at ease. We find that the homeowner is so excited about being educated, it makes them a customer for life, and it makes them want to recommend us to their friends and family.”
Our unmatched Home Office Support and Resources
At Z PLUMBERZ, we understand that plumbing businesses may not have the necessary resources or training to excel in business. This is why, when you franchise with Z PLUMBERZ, you will never be alone in business.

When it comes to training and ongoing support, no other brand even comes close.”
