Franchising is one of the fastest-growing sectors of the Australian economy and the most secure form of small business. According to the Franchise Council of Australia, more than 85% of all stand-alone small businesses fail within their first five years, but in franchising the success rate is the reverse – i.e. 85% of all franchised businesses are still operating after five years, and in most cases are still operated by their original owner. This proves the resilience and underlying profitability of franchises compared with independent small business.
Franchising is not a business in itself but a way of doing business. By following a proven recipe for success, plus applying your own local area knowledge and entrepreneurial flair, franchisees are able to build substantial businesses around the franchisor’s formula, and together both franchisee and franchisor can maximise market potential and customer opportunities.

The term of the Franchise Agreement is 5 years, with the option to renew for a further 5 years.
Which geographical areas are available for Franchising opportunities?
This will be discussed in more detail during your Introductory Call with a Mr Globologist representative however you will control an exclusive territory and all leads in your territory will be passed on to you.
Will the franchisor compete online with my business?
Mr Globologist does not retail products directly from the website. The franchisor will refer clients to the respective franchisee.
Can I source stock from my own suppliers or will I receive guidance on purchasing supplies?
Due to its buying power and long-term supplier associations, Mr Globologist purchases products directly from manufacturers and importers allowing us to offer lower rates, directly to our customers. Local electricians purchase their stock through electrical wholesalers and retailers, who add a profit margin then sell to the electrician who then puts on his margin, thereby incurring an additional level of stock margins, meaning higher prices. Mr Globologist franchisees will have full access the pre-existing supply lines.
Does Mr Globologist offer financing?
No. We do not provide financing; however, we do have a relationship with a third-party vendor who will assist you in obtaining the financing you will need.
