Franchisee - Clark Rubber Haberfield
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.
I came from liquor retailing, so naturally I looked at buying a liquor store, but it required a very large financial outlay and is a very crowded market with heavy discounting. The Clark Rubber franchise was much more affordable option and suited me, as I like working with my hands. I have worked hard, and I feel very comfortable because it has given me a great work life balance.
There is a great sense of community amongst the franchisees, we have state meetings and catch up at conference every year. It provides a great networking opportunity to discuss what’s working in other stores. When we first joined, we relied heavily on the expertise and information from Clark Rubber, to give us the knowledge and confidence to run our own business. If someone came into our store today and asked me about buying a Clark Rubber franchise, I would tell them if they are willing to work hard, the support and knowledge provided will make them a successful franchisee.
Clark Rubber is perfect for anyone who is a little bit handy, has a good practical nature, and willing to help solve customers’ problems. The Clark Rubber system has helped me grow, has allowed me to meet some amazing franchisees and it’s wonderful to be part of such a recognised Australian Brand.
