What is Z PLUMBERZ Franchise?

Professional plumbing franchise, ready to help plumbers take their businesses to the next level

Are you ready to own a thriving plumbing business? Do you want to gain market share, provide better customer service, break into commercial work, and become a part of a community of franchisees and industry experts that has your back?

You’ve come to the right place. Z PLUMBERZ, the plumbing franchise team of BELFOR Franchise Group, exists to help plumbers take their businesses to the next level through franchise ownership. With an exceptional training platform that is far beyond anything else in the industry, and comprehensive ongoing support–including coaching on marketing, financial performance, hiring and recruiting top talent, as well as a 24/7 customer service call center–Z PLUMBERZ is your opportunity to grow your business and chart a path towards financial independence.

“There’s never been a better time to invest in a plumbing franchise,” says Matt O’Rourke, Brand President and founder of Z PLUMBERZ. “Our mission is to help and support small plumbing companies that are struggling to take their businesses to the next level. [Plumbing is in such high demand – there is truly an epidemic of a lack of plumbers.] We’ve put together a straightforward business model that offers customers what they need (reliable, professional service) when they need it (time is of the essence) that can be duplicated over and over again, all while turning a profit. Even if you’re a great plumber, and a leader in the plumbing industry, you might lack the resources in training and support. That’s where we come in. We’re going to work day-in and day-out to ensure that your business has everything it needs to prosper over the long-term.”

How does Z PLUMBERZ stand out from the competition?

It may not surprise you to learn that the plumbing industry–the industry that we’ve chosen to make our life’s work–does not always have a great reputation with American homeowners. For far too long, plumbers have been saddled with negative stereotypes: charging too much money for our work, unreliable service, and of course, the unprofessional image of the “plumber’s crack”.

This is truly unfortunate, especially now, as there is a tremendous shortage of plumbers in the United States, and every homeowner relies on their plumbing system working every day for their health, wellbeing, and overall quality of life.

Z PLUMBERZ is challenging these stereotypes head-on, and separating ourselves from the rest of the 120,000+ plumbing businesses in the nation, by focusing entirely on providing an exceptional customer experience – and our model works. By being professional, transparent and committed to educating homeowners on the value of our work, as well as being backed by BELFOR Property Restoration–which is the largest restoration company in the world– our franchise owners can build trust with their clients and create customers for life.

“Educating consumers is the most important thing for Z PLUMBERZ,” O’Rourke says. “There’s no hiding that plumbers have a poor reputation-the butt-crack image, charging a lot of money without knowing what you’re going to get. In reality, plumbers are extremely smart, competent, and technical individuals. Having the consumer educated as to what we’re doing and why we’re charging what we’re charging puts them at ease, and it justifies the rates that we charge. At the same time, if there’s something we can have a homeowner do on their own, we will show them how to do it. 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 members.”

When a homeowner calls a plumber, something has gone wrong. There could be a flooded basement or a high water bill – and it’s often the case that the homeowner has no idea why the issue has occurred or how to fix it. As a full-service retail plumber, Z PLUMBERZ is able to educate homeowners by talking with them on what options are available to help them become more efficient, save water, and most importantly, save money.

Z PLUMBERZ also goes one step further than the competition in terms of what we’re able to deliver to our clients. Unlike the rest of the industry, Z PLUMBERZ excels in plumbing, drains and sewers. This means that we’re able to help clients fix all of their plumbing jobs, no matter how complicated the job may be. In turn, our franchise owners benefit from multiple lines of service.

“Plumbing isn’t rocket science,” O’Rourke says. “It’s fairly simple once you understand how it works. We educate the homeowner so that they understand why the issue is happening and why it needs to be repaired. Instead of doing a simple, low-cost repair, and leaving it at that, we’ll recommend that a homeowner explore options to make their plumbing system more efficient. There are a lot of items that save water, and we educate what technologies are available. While many plumbers will simply fix the repair and move on, we always look for opportunities to provide a better overall experience for the homeowner.”

We provide world-class support to help you thrive and prosper

As an owner of a small plumbing business, you may not have the time, resources, or know-how to develop a training platform that will attract and retain top talent in your market. The inability to offer career advancement and implement best-practices will keep your business from reaching its full potential. 

When you join the Z PLUMBERZ Team, you will have access to the best in-house support, training and resources needed to grow a thriving plumbing business.

This is how we’ll help you thrive in business:

  • 24/7 Customer Service Call Center
  • Marketing support

  • State-of-the-art equipment
  • Turnkey business model
  • Financial performance coaching
  • Advice on hiring and retaining top talent
  • Gain trust and credibility by being a part of BELFOR Franchise Group
  • Access to industry experts

“Plumbing businesses really struggle with training,” O’Rourke says. “As a plumber myself, I developed our support platform with BELFOR Franchise Group because I know what resources plumbers need in order to grow their businesses. When it comes to training and ongoing support, no other brand even comes close.”
