Are Plumbing Businesses Profitable?

Investing in a Z PLUMBERZ plumber franchise helps you grow a plumbing business quickly

Can you think of a time a plumber wasn’t in high demand?

In a world of financial uncertainty, there remain few industries and trades whose skills will always be needed. Case in point: plumbing. No matter what challenges come with recessions or even pandemics, pipes will always burst and drains will always clog.

According to a recent U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report, “maintenance and repair of plumbing and pipe systems must continue even during economic downturns, so plumbers and fitters outside of construction often have more stable employment.”

And aside from job stability, plumbers have the potential to bring in sizable salaries, enjoying a high profit margin. Much of the work in plumbing is not known until after the job is done, after you’ve calculated all the time and materials it took to complete the project.

This means there is less uncertainty and a higher level of profitability because of the nature of the service. A Mechanical Service Contractors of America report found that in terms of overall profitability, 35% gross profit or gross margin “is a reasonable expectation for plumbing services.”

But getting the most out of your business is no simple task – and that’s why you should consider franchising with Z PLUMBERZ, which will give you the business model, training, and support you need to hit the ground running.

Z PLUMBERZ’s training process is the defining factor in our success. It can’t be overstated: training is often regarded as the make or break factor in a successful plumbing business and most companies don’t have the resources to invest in a comprehensive training program, which can be a set up failure.

Franchising with Z PLUMBERZ, however, gives you unparalleled support through the BELFOR Franchise Group.

We recognize not all franchisees know the ins and outs of the plumbing industry, or even running a business. That’s why we offer a vast array of services and training, which will help you build a business plan. What’s more, franchisees have constant access to ongoing coaching so you’re never alone when difficult decisions need to be made.

Need some examples? Z PLUMBERZ offers a 24/7 call center, made up of professional customer service representatives, which helps franchise owners from missing business and helps increase sales.

Our business models and plans aren’t overly complicated, relying on tried and true methods learned from decades of experience in the industry. You’ll also have access to industry experts, providing a direction connection should any questions or issues arise.

And Z PLUMBERZ has you covered for all your marketing needs, removing one necessary but difficult part of the job. You’ll have access to an in-house marketing team, which will help you draft a marketing plan, establish a digital footprint, and build a customer base.
