Minyard Family

Minyard Plumbing, Inc. was started in 1983, with the goal to serve their customers with quality work at a reasonable price. In 1983, Minyard Plumbing had one 1962 truck and one plumber, operating with a pager and an answering service. Today, Minyard Plumbing has a fleet of seven trucks, a full time office staff and is one of the most respected service companies in the tri-county area.



Frank Minyard of Minyard PlumbingFrank Minyard, Jr. (also known as Butch) is a licensed plumber with the states of North Carolina and South Carolina. His credentials run deep.

Butch has been involved in the plumbing industry over 35 years. His father taught him nearly everything he knows about plumbing. By the age of eleven, Butch was going on jobs with his father regularly. He learned the business from the ground up and credits his father for his success as a plumber. Butch’s father was well known and highly respected by Hickory residents before his death in 1981. Butch has done well in following in his father’s footsteps.

Butch is proud of his heritage and his company. He is most proud of his family’s involvement in his business. His son, Scott, is the third generation to choose plumbing as his vocational skill. Butch’s wife, Jan, is always on call to help in the office while his daughter Amy and dauther-in-law, Mitzi, works in customer service.
