The Dyno franchise offers established businesses for sale across the UK in the plumbing and drainage markets. The annual turnover of these businesses ranges from £500,000 to £4.5m+, so we’re looking for commercial, ambitious and successful operators to take on and grow a substantial asset.
Founded in 1963, you’ll benefit from a number of distinct advantages that see us lead our marketplace, including:
- • Membership of a highly prestigious and well-known brand
- • Large multi-service businesses with several vans and team members
- • A substantial turnover from day one, but with plenty of room to grow
- • A support structure backed by the brand owner British Gas, part of Centrica
- • Being part of a founder member of the British Franchise Association (and a BFA full member to this day)
Investment levels start from £100,000, and our long-term track record of excellence means you can finance up to 70% of your initial investment (subject to status).
As you’d expect, we’ve honed the practices and processes of our franchisees until they are as efficient as possible. You will also benefit from our national account work, national marketing campaigns such as ‘Local Heroes’, and a dedicated and highly experienced franchisee support team.
Dyno-Rod vs Dyno-Plumbing
Dyno offers two different franchise operations, both of which you can be part of. Both services offer a 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week, 365-days-a-year emergency service.
The Dyno-Rod franchise provides a professional service for the cleaning, inspection and refurbishment of drain, sewer and pipework systems.
The Dyno Plumbing franchise provides a plumbing repair and installation service to both domestic and commercial customers.
Which franchise is the right type for me?
Dealing with blocked drains on an on-demand basis is the foundation for the Dyno-Rod service. In recent years the service range has evolved, as have the different types of markets in which Dyno operates. The service range is now comprehensive, covering cleaning, maintenance and repair services for all types of drain and pipework systems. This will be the primary focus of your work as a Dyno-Rod franchisee.
You will also be expected to provide a drain surveying function, using CCTV equipment to produce structural analysis of target drainage systems. Our franchises also provide a drain lining service, repairing structurally defective drains without the need to excavate.
The markets have changed, with a greater emphasis on serving insurance customers and exploiting longer-term contractual arrangements with commercial customers to provide preventative solutions. In most cases, Dyno-Rod franchisees operate in specific geographic territories with a minimum residential population of 500,000, as well as a mix of commercial and industrial premises. A healthy call rate will exist from day one, with the incoming franchisee receiving the benefit of an existing portfolio of regular commercial and industrial customers. It is upon this base that you will develop your business using the local marketing.
Dyno-Rod is an established business with limited resales available.
Dyno Plumbing aims to take advantage of the substantial local demand for a professional plumber. Dealing with everyday emergency plumbing repairs (such as leaking and burst pipes, faulty toilet cisterns and water supply problems) are at the foundation of the business.
The emergency calls create the opportunity to build a relationship with the customer and develop minor installation work. This will rapidly produce a lucrative mix of business to enable the development of a multi-van franchise operation. In most cases, Dyno Plumbing franchisees commence trading with two or more fully equipped and liveried vans.
The UK property care industry is a growth industry. Currently, the emergency plumbing sector is a fragmented market with indifferent service, serving to justify its low public opinion. The Dyno brand enjoys an excellent reputation which gives it a great appeal to the home owner/facilities manager faced with the onerous task of choosing a trustworthy contractor.
As a British Gas company, Dyno-Plumbing is able to benefit from plumbing related work flowing from British Gas’s substantial customer base.
All Dyno business sales are confidential, with details provided to interested parties following a screening process.
