Why a bluefrog Plumbing + Drain Franchise is a Wise Investment for Veterans
A low-cost investment and operating in a $110 billion recession-resistant industry makes our thriving plumbing franchise a best-bet investment
When it comes to running a plumbing franchise, veterans more than fit the bill. Known for their loyalty, precision, and their ability to follow procedures in order to get the job done — often times under extreme pressure — there’s no wonder why veterans often become successful entrepreneurs.
The fact that franchising has a serious appeal to veterans is no surprise either. Franchising allows veterans to become their own boss, while following a proven, structured business model. Today, veterans own about nine percent of all businesses in the United States, totalling more than 2.5 million American businesses, according to the Small Business Association. And although veterans make up only 7 percent of the population, they account for 14 percent of all franchisees in America, notes the International Franchise Association’s VetFran program.
A growing number of veterans have found that franchising provides them with a great opportunity to use their leadership skills and make a good living in the next phase of their lives. According to the Franchise Business Review, the average annual income of veteran franchise owners is currently $81,222 overall, with franchisees in certain sectors earning more than six figures.
Why owning a plumbing business is a wise choice for veterans
Veterans who are considering business ownership ought to put owning a plumbing business at the top of their list. Why? Not only is plumbing a recession-resistant industry, but the industry itself is booming. According to The Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2024 the plumbing industry will have grown by 24% over 10 years. In 2019, the plumbing industry generates more than $110 billion annually.
