5 home services businesses that help protect your local community

Ready to work for yourself? You can build a small business as a franchisee, helping the local community to keep their homes and gardens healthy.

Here are some choices for home services looking to grow their footprint across Australia that might just be for you.

Brand new

Pest Control Australia is fresh to franchising, so you can get in at the beginning of the brand’s national expansion. The business is Queensland-based and has been operating in the sunshine state since 1980 under the Pest Control Queensland banner.

As a franchisee you’ll be helping protect customers from termite and pest infestations whether they are building new homes, renovating, or extending.

Family firm

Creepy Crawly Pest Control began its franchising journey in 2004, almost 30 years after the business started trading.

It’s a family-run firm that provides services to residential and commercial clients and is looking to extend its franchise network beyond New South Wales and Queensland where it currently operates.

Fixing it

Lock & Roll  is a specialist window and door repair, maintenance & upgrade service for domestic and commercial property owners and managers.

You’ll need to bring tradesman skills to the role, but being handy at D.I.Y. isn’t the only requirement. Successful franchisees are great with people too.

Pool perfect

Jim’s Pool Care Mobile is part of the mega Jim’s brand, and the pool care division has been operating since 2003.

Help keep your neighbours’ pools clean and healthy with a business that has 110 franchisees already across the country, some of them running multiple territories.

Stop the leaks

Megasealed has a specialised solution that fixes leaking showers and balconies without the need to remove tiles.

There’s endless client potential from home-owners to hotels; from real estate and property management to aged care; from hospitals and healthcare to builders, plumbers and government departments.
