It really is.
As a matter of fact, I’d go so far to say that it’s your National Holiday.
Hopefully you’ll feel totally drained by the end of the day, because you’ll be so busy.
Mr. Rooter Repairs
If you happen to see a Mr. Rooter…or a Roto-Rooter truck on your street, you can be 100% sure that two things are happening.
1. Really nasty stuff is going on
Translation: Something is clogging your neighbors drain.
I’ll stop right there.
(Use your own imagination; my imagination is currently in use.)
2. A franchisee is making money
Even though you probably didn’t wake up one day dreaming about the vast opportunities that are available in the drain-cleaning business…
When sh_t happens, freaked-out homeowners with overflowing drains and sewers don’t go on a day-long shopping expedition looking for the perfect drain-cleaning provider for their “needs.” They’ll call their insurance agent, or
look in the Yellow Pages look online to quickly find someone who will show up…and fast. Time is of the essence. They need some repairs done…and they need same-day service.
The World Plumbing Day Holiday
I really do try to keep up with all the latest franchise news.
But, I almost missed this story on World Plumbing Day.
If it wasn’t for a press release announcing it, I wouldn’t have known about it.
I also wouldn’t have known that it’s really a serious holiday.
From The World Plumbing Council:
“Plumbing has made an extraordinary but little recognized contribution to human health, the environment and prosperity since the beginning of civilization. Plumbing is plugged into how life works in a way that few other industries are. If decision makers, politicians, and governments finally and fully understood the importance of plumbing, then real progress could be made by our industry and the communities we live in.”
