Plumbing services. It's a dirty job but somebody has to do it. That somebody can be you. It may not be your typical work or business but if you get many customers/clients money will sure come in.
For those who have no idea what plumbing is it's a skilled trade of working with pipes, tubing and plumbing fixtures for drinking water systems and the drainage of waste. The plumbing industry is a basic and substantial part of every developed economy due to the need for clean water, and proper collection and transport of wastes.

An uncle of mine has that kind of business and caters to big restaurants like Pancake House, Shakey's, Red Ribbon, Dencio's, Wendy's, and Hua Lan Cuisine. In Wendy's alone they service the commissary plus the 40 branches. Plumbing business could be a money making machine if you maintain big restaurants.

So how do you service this restaurants? There are many different ways. One is giving a monthly preventive maintenance. This is to prevent any leaks and waste clogging in the kitchen. They also check if there are pipes that are needed to be replace. And they suck all the waste in the sewage. Last time I check they charge a monthly fee of Php 3,500 per outlet and branch.

So if you do the math if Wendy's has 40 outlets multiplied by Php 3,500 that equals to Php 140,000 a month. And that's only one restaurant, if you got 10 big food chains with 40 outlets... you could have a gross income of Php 1.4 million a month.

Other services given to restaurants are declogging of toilet bowls, sanitary line installation, line repiping, cleaning of over head tank, etc. Each services has its own cost.

Restaurants are not only the target market. you could go to schools, hospitals, hotels, resorts, villages, etc. Any area that's needs plumbing service is reachable. Just learn to have your own niche where your plumbing business will be known.
My uncle concentrated on big food chains and now he handles majority of the big restaurants not only in Metro Manila but in the rural areas as well.

To start you should hire good plumbers. One that you can trust with. Pay them generously. Your plumbers is the heart of your business.
Next get all the equipments needed. You will need drain cleaning machines, pipe threading tools, basic masonry and carpentry tools, and a vehicle. A close van will do or an AUV.

Your next goal is to get permits and licenses from the DTI, BIR, Mayor's permit, etc. Once you established all that you can now start doing your marketing. Advertise your business through newspaper, billboards, flyers, and the internet. If you need help promoting your business through the internet you can log to

If your target is schools in the metro, go to each and every schools and set a meeting with the school administrator. Prepare your business proposal and letter of request. Start with one school then move on to the next one once you've mastered it. Your business will be a well oiled machine once you reached 10 big schools.

Are you ready to be a plumber? It is not as elegant as other business but it still brings home the bacon.
