Our company motto is ‘Franchise Partner First’, as every partner is a valued member of The Local Guys Group family.
Unlike other franchisers, we don’t see our partners as sales transactions… because this is a partnership!
Hear from the first-hand experience of our Partners below:
Some examples so far have been factories/warehouses, call centres, medical centres, offices, schools, restaurants and aged care. There is a wide variety of clients that require Test & Tag services but these seem to be common place.
My largest job has been approx 2,300 tests which took about a week to complete.
I’m sure there will be many achievements to come but to date, starting a busininess and working for myself has, and continues to be, very satisfying.
- Not being answerable to anyone other than myself
- Freedom to stucture a good work/life balance
- Working hard to grow my test & tag business.
When purchasing a franchise you are buying a business that is established which minimises the risk. A good franchise has proven systems and provides on-going support to their franchisee’s.
I suppose the biggest challenge has been putting everything into place. Setting everything up in the business at times was a bit stressful. But I found that surrounding myself with good people, and getting plenty of advise, was an enormous help.
The support during the onboarding process from The Local Guys team was fantastic.
Do your homework, talk to friends and family, take your time and make sure you understand the process. If you can, get some professional advise and ask to speak with other franchise owners. Most of all, trust your instincts.
Peter B, SA
I’m a gamer, and enjoy renovating and building things.
Anything from tradies, factories, offices, cafes to nursing homes and breweries/distilleries.
- Not having to put up with other people not pulling their weight
- More family and spare time
- Doing it my way
Daniel J, SA
My biggest achievement so far has been securing all the hospitals and health services in the Barossa Valley area which has given me a huge boost in my first year of business
- Definitely the work/life balance
- Being able to work for myself
- The change of scenery from job to job
Garry M, VIC
I service a number of different businesses in the local area, ranging from retail stores, manufacturing businesses to construction sites/businesses.
Largest job was university student accommodation which was approx. 5,500 items (RCDs and appliances).
Just being able to build the business up since starting up and bringing new clients on board.
- Flexibility with hours, being your own boss
- Dealing with different businesses and locations each day
- High profit margins.
Working in a franchise system you already have proven systems and strategies in place from day one to be successful in your business. You have the ongoing support and feel part of a team that you can rely on which you don’t get when you start your own business. When I started in the franchise I had jobs to go to within my second week which I know I wouldn’t get that if I had just started up my own business.
