What Are My Startup Costs & Fees?

Z PLUMBERZ is one of the most affordable franchise opportunities in the booming plumbing industry

Z PLUMBERZ was founded on the principle that all plumbing businesses should be successful. With the right resources, support, and training, your plumbing business could achieve the results you’ve always wanted – and now, we want to empower you to go after it!

Because of this commitment to helping plumbing businesses become more profitable, Z PLUMBERZ has kept both the initial and ongoing costs of ownership low. In fact, Z PLUMBERZ is one of the most affordable businesses to own in the booming $110 billion industry. The initial investment for owning a standard Z PLUMBERZ franchise is $124,572 to $314,791, and because our business model is effectively turnkey, you can begin operations in a matter of months!  It is also possible to convert your existing business to a Z PLUMBERZ franchise, and the estimated costs for that range from $107,556 to $289,791.

We want to help guide you through the process of owning a successful plumbing franchise. Your franchise fee gives you access to a world-class training and support platform unlike anything else in the industry.

This is how we’ll help you:

  • Strong back-office support – Accounting, work order and estimating software
  • Advice on hiring the best talent in your market
  • Advice on helping you develop career paths for top-performers
  • Ongoing marketing support and opportunity for referrals from our other brands
  • Ongoing financial coaching and business support
  • A 24/7 call service center to ensure that you never miss a call
  • National vendor relationships – for added cost savings!

A Plumber’s business only grows when the phone rings.

The jewel in the Z PLUMBERZ support platform is our 24/7 call center. Because our training emphasizes exceptional customer service, we believe every call is an opportunity to win a customer for life. Our 24/7 customer service call center helps ensure that you will never miss an opportunity to help a customer. This resource will also help you improve your work-life balance, as you won’t have to miss out on precious family time or waste money hiring an office manager or third-party call center to answer phones late at night.

Financing is a great way to make franchising affordable

We offer in-house financing on the franchise fee (up to 50%). We also have great relationships with third-party lenders and can help guide you through the process of securing additional financing. The best part? Because Z PLUMBERZ is part of BELFOR Franchise Group, which has a track record of success, lenders are often more comfortable with our franchisees because we have a proven record.

We offer discounts for Military Veterans

We value our Military Veterans and believe they make exceptional franchise owners. Their proven ability to work within systems, follow processes, and demonstrate leadership makes them ideal candidates for Z PLUMBERZ. Because of this, we offer Military Veterans a discount on franchise ownership.
