The Ideal Candidate

We want you to know, our ideal owner isn't limited to a plumber or technician, but someone ready to build and grow their own business. There's no requirement of previous plumbing, HVAC, or home service experience to own your own 1-800-Plumber +Air franchise.

Our Plumbing and HVAC franchise opportunity is a wonderful way to make a living and give back to your community. We don’t limit ourselves when it comes to who we choose to work with, which means our franchise partners come from all walks of life, with all sorts of interesting backgrounds. But they do tend to have some things in common. The 1-800-Plumber +Air family is made up of people who:

  • Have a genuine interest in becoming better and learning each and every day.
  • Wish to exceed expectations of their customers every time they enter a home or business.
  • Provide superior service in the services we offer.
  • Want to work in a team friendly environment.
  • Possess a “Do whatever it takes” mentality.

We know a candidate is so much more than their resume

Your enthusiasm, drive, and heart make all the difference in the world. That’s why we make sure to spend one-on-one time with each prospective franchise owner, to get to know them, listen, and take the time to learn as much as possible about their goals and aspirations.

What we like to see: We look at the whole person when deciding whether to partner with a potential franchisee, and that includes considering all the intangibles. But we do have certain financial criteria we like all our potential partners to meet, including net worth and liquidity. Your resources will provide the peace of mind you need to focus your attention on growing your 1-800-Plumber +Air franchise and making an impact in your community.

Be a part of the brand

We require our franchise partners to be very active and involved in their business. We also know that because 1-800-Plumber +Air’s intent is on integrating the company into each community we serve, it’s best for our owners to live where they work. However, we respect that each situation will be different and unique, so we’re open to working with you if you’re interested in opening a location in which you don’t currently live near.


You can’t have too much of a good thing Anybody who is a part of a successful franchise like 1-800-Plumber +Air knows that there are a lot of benefits and perks that simply aren’t available when you start your own business from scratch. Perhaps the biggest benefit is the multiplier effect of scalability of growth. The majority of our current franchisees own multiple territories because they are looking to expand their fleet to service a much larger territory providing more opportunities for revenue and growth. When you purchase a multi unit territory from us, the more territory that you have means you’re stockpiling your zipcodes to generate more calls from. Part of our success model is that your marketing plan is built around attracting customers in the zipcodes you purchase in your territory. Making the equation quite simple, the more zip codes you have, the more phone calls you should expect to receive.

Is that growing too quickly? When you take advantage of the discounts we give you on multiple territories, we don’t require you to open them at the same time unless you have the capacity to handle the workload that would come. You and our support team will set some goals for you to grow into opening your second and third territories.

How many trucks should I have for each territory? We understand the need to want to be in a business that can grow with the demand. While we do not require any franchisee to start with a certain number of vehicles, we have seen an incredible amount of success with our franchisees opening their additional territories once they’ve reached their optimal base team (4 trucks, 4 technicians and 2 apprentices/helpers)
