Plumbing Paramedics, the Indianapolis-based plumbing concept, was established to bring something new to the industry. 

“Plumbing Paramedics was originally established to bring a small-town feel to big-city service,” explained Ryan Carpenter, the brand’s president. “Plumbing Paramedics began as a mom-and-pop business with my own family, and we’ve been able to expand our operating model to other independent owners by partnering with Threshold Brands.”

Though Plumbing Paramedics is now growing in conjunction with the multi-brand home services franchisor Threshold Brands, its key principles have been maintained and continue to serve as a differentiating factor.

“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’s continued involvement in the company plays a substantial role in maintaining company culture while providing much-needed support, expertise and empathy for new franchisees as they work through the process of building their business.

Further, the original Plumbing Paramedics business is still open in the Indianapolis area and operates daily. This creates space for candidates to visit and get a better feel for what a Plumbing Paramedics business truly looks like on a day-to-day basis, right from the source.

“I’m a firm believer that things have to be the right fit; our culture needs to match up with our future franchisees,’ and focusing on that value has allowed us to have really great success thus far,” Carpenter added.

The total investment necessary to operate a Plumbing Paramedics franchise business ranges from $131,075 to $239,925. That initial investment range includes a $40,000 fee that must be paid to the franchisor. To learn more about Plumbing Paramedics, visit
