What sets Laser apart from its competitors?
Laser is the largest Plumbing and Electrical Franchise in New Zealand; we are also closely partnered with Obrien's in Australia, sharing some resources. This size and scale mean we can get great support from our supply partners, invest in technology that will support growing your business and, importantly, give you an instant network of Plumbers and Electricians that many refer to as a family.
What are your expectations of your franchise owners?
Laser has built a reputation for service and quality over the years; our customer feedback constantly reflects this. It is essential that quality and customer service are paramount for you. If you can check those boxes, you are on the right track. However, by joining the group, we expect to help you grow your business, which will require you to take on new ways and ideas when it comes to running your business. Our systems are tried and tested, so you will need to come with an open mind and a willingness to grow.
How much could I expect to gross/net in first year, second year, and third year?
The profit will entirely depend on the size of your business when you join. As part of our assessment, we help project some of the additional savings or costs you will have with us in the first year; we want to make sure you are better off by being part of the group. After that, we will help you with forecasting and budgeting for the year to work towards your financial goals. We will also benchmark you against our other members to identify areas to get some quick wins.
How long will it take to see the benefits of my business joining Laser?
You will start getting support for your business from the day you join. Like any business, it will require you to do some demanding work to realise the benefits. The value of these benefits can take months or even years to realise fully, but we have a great roadmap and support to help grow your business.
What are the financial obligations? Ongoing fees?
When you join, you commit to a minimum of five years; after that, you have the right to renew your contract. A minimal monthly fee contributes to the services you receive, such as your licenses for the accounting packages you will need to run your business. A percentage of your revenue will go towards marketing the brand and your business, along with the administration support you will receive.
How will Laser help drive demand for my business?
Our Group Marketing Fund (GMF) is our national programme responsible for lifting the overall awareness of the Laser brand and the services we offer to drive demand. The Local Marketing Package (LMP) provides the tools and resources to increase local demand for your business further.

Laser Plumbing Grey Lynn
I originally joined Laser in my early days in business as I had seen the Laser Electrical vans around which looked very sharp and professional. I read about Peter and Daves success in turning around their business with the systems etc and I knew being involved would be beneficial to me as a tradesman, not necessarily a businessman. This has helped me grow in 14 years from a one-man band to 3 separate businesses and 23 people, the marketing, buying power, systems, business training and networking are all invaluable.We have made a lot of friends for life with Laser on both sides of the Tasman and I wouldn't have it any other way.
Laser Plumbing Matamata | Morrinsville | Putaruru
We joined Laser to expand our business.Without the resources and advice of Laser we would not have grown like we have in the time we have been with Laser. We have found the member support to be very beneficial to our business through the support of other members we have met at seminars, conferences and performance groups; as well as people we can contact to share ideas and experience with. We now have a great network of people around the country.
Laser Electrical Palmerston North Central
We joined Laser Group 5 years ago, the support and information shared, has been so valuable to our business. Real people with wide and up to date experience wanting to help others to grow and succeed. In a changing world with so much compliance and technical expertise needed, we have the advantage with Laser Group. Frankly we have never looked back and know that our decision to join was the best we have ever made.
Laser Plumbing Wairarapa
We decided to join the Laser Group to try and establish our existing business a bit better and to grow as a business.
Throughout our time with Laser the support has been without doubt second to none. The behind-the-scenes support and systems that are available are truly worth their weight in gold. All in all, it's just a great, positive team to be part of.
Laser Electrical Rotorua
Combining two established small businesses, Scott and I joined the Laser Group in 2001. What we’ve experienced over the last 20 years as proud Laser members has been access to great systems, a collaborative supportive network, innovation, and growth beyond all expectations. The end result being a well-respected business with powerful branding and even more potential to grow, into the future.
Laser Electrical Dunedin
When it came to expanding our well-established business, we assessed various options, it soon became clear that Laser was the only option that had the market presence we wanted.
We already had a great brand locally, but with Laser behind us, we found with the additional advertising and IT support it created greater turnover opportunities through increased customer awareness / increased productivity and greater office efficiency. The change to new software systems did create its' own challenges, but with our award-winning business support managers we honestly wouldn’t look back now.
Laser Electrical Invercargill
We’re in a small town as part of a wider region and joined for the benefits seen in the systems and brand name. These have certainly been valuable, but we’ve found the greatest benefit is the expansion in our horizons and learnings taken from our mates in the wider region. Like they say, no man is an island, and we’re continuing to grow these benefits by participating in a performance group with other similar Laser businesses.
