MetroRod enjoyed considerable growth in the first quarter of 2021, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.

A trading update from Stephen Hemsley, head of Metro Rod’s parent company Franchise Brands, has confirmed strong performance in the first quarter of 2021 for all brands as they “[grew] 24% to a record of £2m”. Stephen expressed, 

“This performance underlines the strength of our business model and is a testament to the hard work of all our people throughout the challenges of the winter lockdown.”

Metro Rod is trusted by businesses up and down the nation to provide high-quality standards of work. First founded in 1983, the company provides drain clearance and pre-planned maintenance services to a wide range of customers across the UK. 

The Metro Rod network includes over 300 highly trained drainage engineers, and many hardworking franchisees. Throughout the pandemic, Metro Rod’s services have been considered essential, and along with specialist plumbing sister company, Metro Plumb, Metro Rod was given the all-clear to continue working.

The drainage franchise has successfully adapted its services in order to ensure it can be present for customers while still keeping them as safe as possible in the current climate. While health and hygiene standards within the franchise have always been extremely high, this year the business has taken extra steps to bring itself in line with government guidelines. This has included investing in additional PPE and requiring all staff to adhere to strict social distancing guidelines.

Safety and customer satisfaction will continue to be the two highest priorities for Metro Rod, and the franchise proudly complies with the highest national accreditation standards.

If you’re considering a low-risk, high-reward investment, this drain care and repair business might be the perfect option. The minimum investment cost to get involved with this thriving franchise is £50,000.
