Topic: Spotlight on a Franchisee

Having spent most of his working life making large corporations such as Nintendo lots of money, Leon decided it was time to “Take Control of my Future and make myself and my family financially independent”. Leon has been an Aussie Pet Franchise Owner for 4 years and is recognized as a problem-solver, and the go-to person. He was looking for an opportunity that would leverage his leadership strengths and business skills, while helping others realize their dreams and aspirations. During his research he found the perfect opportunity and made the decision to become a MULTI UNIT Franchise Owner with the Team at Aussie Pet Mobile.

Leon has grown his extremely scalable business from 1 mobile “We come to you” Pet Grooming van to 5 with plans to continue to grow as demand from new clients increases. “This is a fabulous business which offers me the lifestyle I choose. I can work from my Home Based operation where I work around all the other important aspects of my life, namely my family” The Aussie business is so easy to manage and with the ongoing hands-on coaching and support from the Management team at Aussie, my life is now a breeze. This is a fun job. I love going to work!”

Leon employs a team of groomers and is in the business of managing groomers, not grooming himself. “My groomers love the fact that they are in the frontline of my business. They are an integral and very important part of my business. My groomers drive their Mercedes Benz corporate branded vans throughout the community on a daily basis and are always meeting new clients and making new friends. This is a great referral based business and my groomers are encouraged and incentivized to attract new clients to our growing client database. It gives them a great feeling of self importance, they have high self esteem and they too just love going to work. In fact I have had the same groomers from the outset. We work as a team and we all have the same goals.”

Leon advises that the service offered is a Premium ‘We come to You’ service. There is basically no competitors in the market place offering the service that Aussie offers. The Aussie 15 Step Spa Treatment is comprehensive and the results speak for themselves. Leon states “Our business is built on repeat client bookings and client referrals…this is a win/win situation – the business basically markets itself. With that fact and the support from Head Office I feel as though I am in business for myself BUT not by myself!”
Leon was awarded the prestigious Aussie Pet Mobile Gold Franchise Owner of the Year in 2007 and backed this up with the Aussie Franchisee Growth Award in 2008, his lead groomer Michele was awarded the Groomer Award of Excellence in 2007 and she backed this up winning the coveted Groomer of the Year in 2008. Together they have ensured that the Aussie name is well branded and has become a household name within their franchised protected territory.

"This is a straight forward home based business opportunity," Leon said. "Even more than that, the Aussie system is designed to give every Franchise Owner the opportunity to be highly successful." Leon is very aware that Aussie Pet Mobile is in the 'customer satisfaction' business, stressing to his groomers that he has the same expectations as customers do....they need to operate the business well and stay focused on their Customers, when they do, it creates a winning situation for everyone!

“Joining the Team at Aussie has been a great decision for me and my family; it could be for you to. I would encourage you to seriously consider the Aussie franchised system and am always happy to talk to qualified prospects looking to get ahead in life, looking to take control of their destiny.!”
