Metro Plumb's history

How has Metro Plumb developed over the years?

Since sister franchise Metro Rods inception in 1983, many of its franchisees have offered limited plumbing services as part of their drainage business. However, the franchise realised it could diversify by offering a separate package for those that wanted to specialise in emergency plumbing services for both domestic and commercial clients. 

So, in 2016, the very first Metro Plumb franchise opened its doors. Now, there are four locations across the country. Could you be the next member of this rapidly expanding franchise?

Metro Plumb is part of the Metro Rod brand, who have been members of the British Franchising Association (BFA) since 1997 and have won a number of national awards with them.

Metro Plumb is part of the larger group Franchise Brands plc which is an international multi-brand franchisor with a combined network of over 450 franchisees. You will recognise names such as Metro Rod, ChipsAway, Ovenclean, and Barking Mad, all of which deliver services through the Groups franchisees.
