Business Model

Our Franchise model is unique in that we spend the Franchise Fee on helping you get set up and we do not charge royalties. We only earn income when our Franchisees sell sheds which generates a Win-Win situation where it is very much in our interest to make sure you are fully trained, prepared, professionally presented and supported to begin selling sheds when you hit the ground in your territory. With our support, you need to set up premises in a highly visible location in your territory and you need a vehicle wrapped in Sheds n Homes livery. Our market leading design software creates customized buildings for all applications and produces plans and drawings that ere engineer certified and ready for submission to local councils. Finished steel building kits are delivered direct to the site where they will be erected, meaning you do not have to handle them and that you do not have to carry stock. A large marketing support team assists you in setting up premises and generating enquiries and cash flow.

Testimonials

My decision to acquire a Sheds n Homes Franchise is the smartest one I have made in my entire business career. In just over two years, I have grown my business to be one of the largest in the Sheds n Homes network, achieving sales and growth beyond my wildest dreams. None of this would have been possible without the high-quality systems and support provided by the Franchisor. From initial training on the use of the outstanding design and business management software, through to ongoing technical, engineering and marketing support, nothing has been too much to ask of the dedicated Franchisor team. It's all part of a positive culture where Franchisees are treated as business partners and we all have a common goal to achieve excellence, growth and success. But it is the quality of the product that really stands out. I get a lot of referral work from customers who are very happy with our product quality and are happy to recommend us to their friends, acquaintances and business contacts. Our shed builders also recommend us to all their contacts as providing the sheds they are most happy to work with, due to the product quality and the comprehensive and job specific construction manuals that make our buildings easy to erect and solid as a rock.  I have no hesitation in recommending Sheds n Homes to anyone looking for a great business with unlimited potential.
