Discover rewarding opportunities with Metro Plumb...the nation’s local plumber

Metro Plumb offers a complete home and commercial plumbing solution. 

The franchise was founded after recognising a gap in the market for additional plumbing services required by the clients of our sister brand, Metro Rod; award-winning and leading provider of drain clearance and maintenance services. There is now over 30 Metro Plumb franchisees across the UK.

We serve domestic households along with many national business customers across multiple sectors including facilities management, retail, water utilities, social housing, hospitality and insurance, as well as local businesses and other customers in the private and public sectors, including:

companies that Metro Plumb work for

Plumbing has remained resilient against recession. Our emergency repair services and regular maintenance contracts have kept Metro Plumb franchisees busy, regardless of the state of the economy.

Due to a high demand nationwide, we are looking for ambitious, hard-working, commercially aware individuals to run their own plumbing business.

“Since joining Metro Plumb I have been able to establish a solid and stable business in Kent. Through hard work, dedication and the help and support of Metro Plumb, we have been able to grow substantially, more than I could have hoped for working on my own”.
Gary Swan, Metro Plumb Kent

The Metro Plumb franchise opportunity

Investing in a Metro Plumb franchise allows you to benefit from a trusted and recognised brand with a professional image of quality customer care and emergency support services.

It is an ideal business for those looking for a scaleable opportunity.  Whilst you may run your Metro Plumb business from home initially, there is every possibility that the business will require you to employ staff to keep up with demand and you could find yourself running a small team of plumbers and vans in the near future.

With an expanding number of Metro Plumb franchisees across the UK, you will be able to grow your customer base, benefit from local relationships and organise pre planned maintenance contracts and longer-term support programs, all of which will enable you to service your own local portfolio of customers.

Metro Plumb franchise requires an investment of £17,000 to acquire your own exclusive territory. As you can work from home there is minimal set up fees other than a van and equipment pack both of which we can help you with.

For hard working and dedicated franchisees, the Metro Plumb franchise model can generate a fantastic earning potential.

We are members of the British Franchising Association (BFA).

Case Studies

Case Study
Taking control over your future with Metro Plumb

Gary Swan is a plumber by trade but wanting to become more than a jobbing plumber where he relied on being sub-contracted to others for work, he began to research opportunities that gave him more structure, stability, long-term planning and control over his work. This led him to franchising and after researching the opportunities available, he was keen to find out more about Metro Plumb.  His decision to join Metro Plumb has paid off in the past year.  Whilst many self-employed plumbers have become victims to the Covid pandemic, Metro Plumb Kent has seen an increase in business due to the robust franchise model and key accounts the company has. Gary is looking forward to his future with Metro Plumb.
