Meet some of our franchisees
I was initially worried about joining a franchise, but once I met the support team, and understood how much time the team invest in helping every store, the decision was very simple. I was accustomed to long hospitality hours, and wasn’t seeing as much of my family as would have liked. Joining Clark Rubber and working in retail, has allowed me to control how many hours I work, and has provided some work life balance, which is great for my family.
I originally became involved with Clark Rubber in a very indirect way. My wife knew one of the franchisees in Carringvale, who was selling their above ground pool display. I went to check out the Pool, but after looking around the store I decided this is the type of business I wanted to purchase. I didn’t buy the pool, but 18 months later I did buy a Clark Rubber franchise, after searching for and finding the perfect site...
When we moved from Sth Africa in 2013 we had already researched the market in Australia and saw how well the Clark Rubber brand was established, and lucky for us the Kawana store was available. After meeting management and the support office staff, we were very impressed and the whole process was very transparent and easy to navigate. Compared to other franchises in the market, the guidance and systems already established due to the age of the brand, made the choice very easy to choose Clark Rubber...
We came to Clark Rubber after owning business’s in the past, and we knew there was great brand recognition for Clark Rubber, so when one came available we saw it as a very exciting prospect. The systems and processes really help an entrepreneurial mindset, where you can use everything from the support office to help start and grow your own business, and also think outside the box. Since joining Clark Rubber, our expectations have been met, and our goals achieved...

The ultimate guide to owning
and growing a franchise business
A franchise generally involves the owner of a business (known as the franchisor) licensing to a third party (known as the franchisee) the right to operate a business.
In a franchise business, the franchisor provides a developed way of doing business, ongoing guidance, systems and assistance in return for periodic payment of fees and/or purchases.
The impact of COVID-19 has pushed aside recent franchising scandals, but the federal government's Franchising Taskforce could save the sector from sinking.
