The People We Want
Zoom franchise won’t take just anyone. Here’s what we’re looking for in a ZOOM DRAIN franchisee.
ZOOM DRAIN is a bit of an exclusive club. We don’t require specialized backgrounds, but we’re not looking for just anyone. We’re seeking people who want to create real, positive opportunities for themselves and their teams.
ZOOM DRAIN can be a huge added value to an existing plumbing or home services business. But, while industry experience is always helpful, it is not required. As we have improved our processes and training over the years, we have made it increasingly possible for experienced entrepreneurs to invest in a ZOOM DRAIN franchise and hire competent managers and technicians to handle the more technical parts of the business.
Here’s a look at some of the people who might be a good fit for a Zoom franchise:
Plumbers and other home services contractors
For experienced home services/contracting/plumbing operators, we have two tracks dedicated to franchise ownership:
A Zoom franchise is a great way to grow your existing business as a plumbing, electrical or HVAC contractor. As an already established services contractor, you can add additional streams of revenue with the proven systems and brand-backing of ZOOM DRAIN. This is what we call our Plus Play opportunity.
Your existing drain and sewer business can be improved with ZOOM DRAIN. We have the systems — marketing, sales, financial, operational and technical — as well as the leadership and strategy to take your company to new levels of growth and profitability. We call this our Pure Play opportunity.
And if you don’t have experience in home services? That’s okay. We are looking for people who are savvy enough to recognize the growth opportunities in this industry, and with ZOOM DRAIN in particular. Both experienced investors and new entrepreneurs welcome.
We’re looking for people who will fit our culture and who will be a good fit with our franchise family.
“What makes it particularly a good time to get involved is, we’re still at the beginning,” says Ellen Rohr, co-founder and COO. “Imagine being with McDonald’s at the beginning. Imagine being one of the first 20 franchisees. We don’t have a franchisee advisory council yet because I can get all of my franchisees in a room and talk to them.”
Long Island franchisee Jason Kim wasn’t too sure about Rohr’s approach at first — but he’s a total convert now.
“We gave Ellen a lot of crap in the first year or two for passing on potential franchisees who wanted in because she didn’t think they fit the culture that she wanted to build,” Kim says. “And in hindsight, I think she was absolutely right and has done just a stellar job of assembling the right candidates, the right franchisees who have the right culture, have the right mindset, and are just good people. That’s super rewarding to be around when you’re in a room with them.”
Whether you’re an experienced professional home services contractor seeking a revenue-generating boost for your existing business or a smart entrepreneur who wants to get into a booming industry in the early stages of a franchisor’s growth, we might be the right fit for you.
