Gavin Culmsee is Chief Operating Officer of Bedshed, one of Australia’s largest specialist bedding and bedroom furniture franchises with a network of more than 30 stores across the country. A robust industry in Australia, franchising takes a lot of the risk out of starting your own business. Bedshed has grown steadily since it started in Western Australia in 1980 and is currently expanding on the eastern seaboard.
There will be expectations that are unique to each industry, however, when buying into an existing franchise franchisees can expect to receive expert assistance from franchisors in a range of areas relevant to their business.
Franchisors work hard to develop their business model into a format that can be easily replicated. To build an exceptional franchise brand, franchisors are looking for exceptional people to join their team.
So you’ve decided to make the jump into the world of franchising… Now all you need to do is chose the perfect business from more than 1,300 franchise systems operating in Australia. Piece of cake, right?
