Your Plumber Franchise Opportunity

Article Contents

A Your Plumber franchise provides the opportunity to build a lucrative, multi-van service business in a substantial and growing market.

Your Plumber presents an excellent management franchise opportunity for those keen to apply their commercial skills to build a dynamic and highly profitable service business.

Owning a Your Plumber franchise is ideal for those looking for a business that

  • Serves a large, sustainable and buoyant market
  • Will utilise their customer service, business development and leadership skills.
  • Has a dynamic and innovative marketing strategy.
  • Involves building a team to serve local residential and commercial customers.
  • Provides a healthy flow of repeat business and recurring revenue
  • Succeeds as a premium priced service in a fragmented market.
  • What’s required?

    The training and support provided enables our franchise owners to successfully run a busy Your Plumber franchise. It isn’t necessary to be a heating and plumbing expert – they are fully shown precisely how to effectively recruit and manage engineers and contractors, even if they don’t know a P-trap from a U-bend. Far more important is that franchise owners have the skills, ambition and drive to build a multi-van ‘gold standard’ business. Success as a Your Plumber franchise owner comes from being passionate about delivering excellent service, from professional customer engagement and from great business leadership.

    What’s involved?

    Building a team of engineers, sub-contractors and support staff, Your Plumber franchise owners are responsible for providing heating and plumbing services to homeowners, landlords and businesses - from tap washer changes to installing new boilers and central heating systems. They manage all aspects of the business, to include:

  • conducting surveys (using our winning techniques),
  • preparing quotations,
  • supervising installations,
  • liaising with customers
  • organising the marketing that drives their business forward.
  • What support is provided?

    To complement their local business development activity, franchise owners benefit from on-going central marketing support. Key to this is harnessing the power of digital marketing opportunities, particularly Google and Facebook. We manage a web site that also powers enquiries from customers in each franchise territory. Professional sales material to help promote the service to new and existing customers also features in the marketing ‘war chest’.

    Importantly, we provide on-going tuition and mentoring to help ensure that franchise owners are able to deliver a technically proficient service of ‘gold standard’ quality. We show how to recruit capable contractors and engineers, to monitor the quality of workmanship and to enforce a culture of service excellence.

    What’s different?

    Your Plumber franchise owners do not provide an ordinary heating and plumbing service. They run a customer-focused service business that is better organised, more professional and more capable than competitors in servicing customer demand. For example, they have:

  • A Code of Conduct that they actually work to!
  • A bespoke heating and plumbing service contract that provides recurring revenue from secured customers.
  • FCA approval to offer finance packages that help win profitable installation business.
  • Administration software that helps maximise business efficiency and service quality.
  • Accreditation as a Which? endorsed business.
  • The heating and plumbing market is buoyant and we’ve designed the Your Plumber service package to help franchise owners be highly effective at meeting the growing demand for honest, reliable, quality service. As a result, Your Plumber franchise owners provide a premium priced service capable of securing a majority share of the local market. The sales and profit potential is significant.

    Our ‘Business Builder’ system ensures that a measured approach is taken to getting a Your Plumber franchise to a multi-van level, ensuring the required staff and equipment resources are introduced in an affordable manner. Key to this is the use of sub-contractors to provide servicing flexibility until the sales volume justifies an investment in employees and vans –the system helps franchise owners to effectively appoint and manage sub-contractors.

    What’s the cost?

    The initial franchise fee is £19,950 plus VAT.

    Allowing for a van deposit, tools and equipment, initial stock and working capital we estimate that the overall investment required will be approximately £35,000.

    What’s required?

    Your Plumber franchise owners are motivated by the opportunity to build a market leading service business. They have solid commercial acumen combined with drive, integrity and great interpersonal skills. Experience of managing teams, particularly field staff, is an obvious advantage but above all our franchise owners are ambitious people determined to succeed, taking advantage of the help and support provided.
