Facts and Figures

  • Territory size – We take into account many factors when determining your territory size, such as where your current customers are located (if you have an existing business), the number of businesses and upper income homes in the area, as well as any areas in which you would like to expand your business.
  • Existing business – Your existing business counts with us. If you have an existing business in the industry, you may qualify for a roll-in discount based on the size of your existing business.
  • VetFran discount – In recognition for service to our country, we offer a discount of 15% off the initial franchise fee for honorably discharged veterans who satisfy the VetFran program guidelines.
  • Start-up costs -- Whether you're starting from scratch with the purchase of new equipment, vehicles, supplies, and marketing expenses, or simply rebranding your current business, we'll help you calculate an investment based on your needs.
  • Convert your existing business -- We focus on helping business owners implement our tested systems and support to increase efficiency, and these systems are designed to function in any size business.
  • License fees -- Successful businesses are built upon effective systems covering marketing, sales, operations, technology, finance, human resources, etc. A business owner can choose to find, develop, and implement these systems on their own, or they can align with a franchise like Mr. Rooter and implement established systems. The license fees that are paid by franchise owners are for the various forms of support that you receive. When you do well, we do well. This puts us on the same team, pushing in the same direction.
  • Master Plumber's License -- While the licensing requirements will vary from state to state, it may be possible for an investor to open a franchise without personally holding a master plumber's license.
