President/CEO of 1-800-PLUMBER +AIR
In 2010, Mark Collins' family-owned plumbing business became a 1-800-PLUMBER +AIR franchise. They knew they needed a name behind the quality service they were already providing and the 1-800-PLUMBER +AIR brand was a perfect fit. Then in 2015, Mark acquired the 1-800-Plumber +Air brand and started
offering the franchising option in 2017. Mark
is a 5th generation master plumber whose plumbing roots date back to 1905. The
Collins' history has given Mark the experience and understanding that customers want. This experience and understanding have been the
backbone of the 1-800-Plumber +Air success model that is being
implemented throughout the country. Transitioning from franchisee to franchisor has given Mark the unique perspective to ensure that the systems he has built are always in the best interest of the local franchise owner and the brand.
Mike Collins is the Vice President and has served in a variety of roles within the plumbing industry from technician to franchise owner and operator over the last 16 years. Mike has worked alongside his brother Mark in successfully running 1-800-PLUMBER +AIR Pearland, and serves as a valuable field operations expert at the corporate level. When any franchise owner or technician needs assistance in the field from pricing a job, selling a job, or needing the technical expertise to execute the job, Mike is able to assist and support with the day-to-day operations.
