Green Homes launches sustainable housing franchise

Green Homes Australia is launching its building franchise, The Green Builder, which aims to deliver energy efficient homes with the potential to help occupants reduce energy bills by up to 60 percent.

Green Homes operations manager, David Berryman said the Orange-based business is about building homes “that are comfortable, affordable, and efficient to run”.

“Every year the cost of living in Australia rises and a lot of this cost is associated with household energy bills, yet very few new homes are actually designed and built with energy efficiency in mind.

“Having been a green construction business for over six years, we know first-hand the demand that exists in the market, and we want to put the tools we use in the hands of builders across Australia.”

Potential franchisees need to be licensed builders and can expect access to ready-to-build green plans, certified training, business support, business leads, business systems and essential tools to ensure the business is up-to-date.

Franchisees will also benefit from lead generation on a national, state and regional level, allowing builders to net clients in their area through advertising and marketing activities.

The investment for a Green Builder franchise starts at $25,000 with additional setup costs. There are opportunities across Australia and master franchising opportunities available (with a minimum investment of $50,000 plus additional setup costs) for each state.
