Plumbing Paramedics, the plumbing concept that provides high quality services with a family-owned feel, has identified Illinois as a target market for franchise growth. The home services industry is booming, and the brand is ready to leverage that momentum to break into new markets.

“The home services industry in Illinois is very strong, and this is going to be a great opportunity for franchisees to select the territories that are perfect for them as we first enter the state,” said Ryan Carpenter, president of Plumbing Paramedics. “We’re excited to be growing beyond Indiana, but targeting surrounding markets first will allow us to directly support these new franchisees while building a united brand and more awareness in the region.”

According to a recent report, “The home services industry has an average multiplier across all states of 1.8X for additional economic output, while creating an additional $320.1 billion in household income and 732,844 additional jobs in adjacent or supporting industries.”

This essentially means that the home services market industry is buzzing, creating both success within the space and remarkable economic growth in surrounding industries. Illinois’ home services industry has the second largest impact in the nation with a 2.07X multiplier, making it a clear frontrunner in terms of strong market value.

As Plumbing Paramedics establishes units within the state, franchisees will reap the benefit of wide territory availability, without sacrificing the support that exists within a franchise network.

Since the brand is still emerging, it is taking a practical approach to expansion, working to grow in states surrounding its birthplace, Indiana, to broaden brand awareness in the region while maintaining geographical closeness. This allows existing Plumbing Paramedics professionals to remain close and able to provide direct support to new franchisees.

Because Plumbing Paramedics uses a franchise model and is founder-led, the company values are maintained network-wide without losing sight of franchise owners’ autonomy. One of these primary values is a small-town, family-run feel.

“You’re in business for yourself but not by yourself,” Operations Manager Court Aiken said. “So, you get to retain ownership, you get to retain daily control of your business, and while there are certain rules and regulations that will keep you in line with the franchise agreement, you still ultimately have control over your business. We’re here to partner with you, and we here at Plumbing Paramedics are looking for people who share our philosophy.”

The total investment necessary to begin operation of a Plumbing Paramedics franchise business ranges from $102,250-$205,800. That initial investment range includes a $40,000 fee that must be paid to the franchisor. To learn more about Plumbing Paramedics, visit
