To enter into The Local Guys brand, you are required to have a Nationally Recognised Police Check, Working with Children’s Check and First Aid Training.

At The Local Guys, we offer a $1,000-$1,500 per week income guarantee to provide our new Franchise Partners some peace of mind during their first year of business! We understand that when you are getting started in your new business, you may have concerns about not making enough money. To combat this, when you are not working, we will pay you to promote your business… so, no need to worry! If you do not reach $52,000 in your first year of business, we will top-up your turnover to reach this amount (paid quarterly).
Training includes relevant licencing, in-field training with an expert in the industry and in-office training. Office training includes all office operations and programs, marketing, sales and accounting.
Definitely! Within your territory you will work to grow your business with the support of our sales and marketing training. The Support Centre also obtains new leads from our marketing, Google Ad Words, website and SEO, which we will pass on to you.
Our royalties are calculated as a flat rate. This means that no matter how much you are earning, you will only pay the flat rate in royalties. We want to see each of our Franchise Partners successfully grow their business as large as possible and we believe charging a percentage of the earnings would discourage this.
We allow approximately 6 weeks to get you started! This allows us to get to know one another, complete the training and get everything set up, read to hit the floor running from day one of business!
