Shortage of plumbers and less competition sheds light on why plumbing is a smart business to own
The recent crisis focused attention on essential businesses that we don’t think of often. In franchising, plumbing garnered a lot of attention as a service franchise that is always in demand and that has little organized competition.
Many Americans are seeking viable business opportunities that are both personally and financially rewarding. Entrepreneurs looking to own a high margin business in a rapidly growing industry would do well to consider bluefrog Plumbing + Drain, one of the fastest growing plumbing franchises in the nation.
Nationally, there is a shortage of plumbers and good, reliable – and honest – plumbing businesses. Plumbers and the plumbing industry struggles with an image problem, keeping many aspiring entrepreneurs from researching plumbing franchise opportunities. This is a mistake – plumbing is one of the most potentially lucrative service franchises to own and you don’t have to be a licensed plumber to own a plumbing business since most states require you to hire a master plumber.
Since 2014, bluefrog has found success by sticking to our core philosophy: it’s not about plumbing, it’s about people. This is why we have designed our business model to help our franchise owners maximize profitability and excel at providing the best customer service in the plumbing industry. If you have experience managing teams, dealing with customers and understand good customer service, plumbing is an industry worthy of attention.
“I’ve been in franchising for a long time, and I know that the only businesses that are truly worthy investments are recession-resistant, offer high margins and are an immediate need for a large population,” says Gary Findley, CEO of bluefrog Plumbing + Drain. “If you have a problem in your home, whether it’s a clogged toilet, or roots growing in your yard that bust your pipes, that has to be fixed. People for a long time thought they had to be a plumber, or have a license. No. This is a true business. We offer advice on helping you find a qualified plumber and master the business model. This is why we’re attracting business-minded entrepreneurs. There’s nothing sexy about being a plumber, but if you want to be in business, want to grow, and earn a great living, this is the business for you.”
