Plumbing Paramedics, the emerging plumbing service concept, is now looking to Louisville, Kentucky, as its momentum continues to grow in the new year. Organizations have identified Louisville as a promising market for new businesses, and Plumbing Paramedics is among a small group of concepts already prepared to grow in the space.

“We are looking to expand in Louisville due to both the opportunity that exists in the community and the potential for further regional expansion,” explained Ron Bender, Chief Growth Officer of Plumbing Paramedics’ parent franchisor, Threshold Brands. “Once Plumbing Paramedics establishes a strong foothold in the Louisville market, it will be positioned well to increase brand awareness throughout the region.”

Plumbing Is a Necessary Service With Consistent Demand

Plumbing Paramedics presents a strong business opportunity. The home services industry as a whole continues to boom, and plumbing is a service that often must be addressed in a timely manner due to the ripple of consequences that water damage can bring.

“Whether it’s a leaky faucet or issues with pipes, the need for plumbers will never go away,” explained Ryan Carpenter, founder of Plumbing Paramedics. “The plumbing industry has proven to be both recession-proof and pandemic-proof. There isn’t a more reliable franchise opportunity out there.”

Plumbing Paramedics also allows franchise owners the opportunity to pursue multiple revenue streams, including bathroom fixture installation, pipe repair services and complete kitchen services.

Plumbing Paramedics’ Model Centers Support and Community

Plumbing Paramedics is still founder-led, a key differentiating factor for new franchise owners. Aside from its robust training and support systems, having the founder at the helm encourages a continued emphasis on key company values: connection, community and personalized service.

“What really separates us as a franchise (opportunity) is that we don’t have any competitors that are founder-led,” Carpenter said. “Being the founder, the guy who started with two trucks on the road, I can relate to contractors and people wanting to get into this business.”

Carpenter initially founded the brand in an effort to provide high-quality service with a “small town” feel. He had identified a gap in the market and realized that many plumbing services were simply focused on making sales and obtaining new customers. At Plumbing Paramedics, building relationships with clients and providing honest, high-quality service is the top priority. 

The total investment necessary to begin the operation of a Plumbing Paramedics location ranges from $131,075-$239,825. For conversion opportunities, business owners can expect an estimated initial investment range of $49,075 – $114,925. To learn more about Plumbing Paramedics, visit
