Rooter-Man, a national plumbing and drain cleaning franchise, has been ranked the #1 plumbing franchise by Entrepreneur magazine for the 11th consecutive year (2003-2013). Entrepreneur magazine also ranked Rooter-Man #174 among the top 500 franchises. The magazine determines a company’s rank by their cumulative scores in financial strength, stability, number of franchises, growth rate, years of operation, startup costs and company-provided financing.

“We are honored by being recognized by Entrepreneur magazine,” says founder and CEO Donald MacDonald. “Our Rooter-Man dealers deserve most of the credit for this continued accomplishment — it would not have been possible without their success and support over the years!” 

The continuously growing service business has over 400 locations across the United States and Canada, uses a superhero theme, and 24-hour-a-day, 7-day-a-week service motto for promotion.

“Before expanding, we did a lot of planning and testing to develop proven systems for growth and profitability,” says MacDonald. “Now that everything is in place, we are well prepared for the success we’ve been experiencing.”
