New Zealand’s largest flooring, curtains and solar solutions company Harrisons is inviting Kiwis searching for a new career path to join the ‘family’ as franchisees.
The 100 percent mobile company has launched an attractive incentive for New Zealanders to refer someone who they think could make a fantastic franchisee to join the company. When a candidate referral results in a successful appointment, Harrisons will give $2000 worth of credit to Kiwis to spend on the company’s services.
CEO Patrick Harrison says it is a wonderful opportunity for people around the country who are looking for a career change to create a financially secure future, while owning an established brand.
“We’re looking for Kiwis to join our growing network to become Harrisons Carpet & Flooring, Curtains & Blinds or Solar Power experts, working in an area or region exclusively.
“To identify the right people in the right places, we’re asking all New Zealanders to look in their own backyard for the right talent to help us speed up our search!”
Established in 1962, Harrisons is a true example of a successful family business. Founded by Des Harrison, the journey began with a store in Whangarei selling carpet and furniture, which quickly grew to become the go-to brand for household furnishings. Des’ three sons John, Patrick and Phil joined the family business in 1983 and have been at the heart of the brand ever since.
Priding itself on friendly and creative franchisees, and giving Kiwis the freedom to ‘be their own boss’, Harrisons has long been a popular business opportunity.
Due to the rise in home improvements during the last 12 months, the business has seen a siginificant increase in customer demand. To meet and exceed the needs of its customers, Harrisons is after fun, passionate people to join its team.
“We have both opportunities available to purchase an existing business off a current franchisee or to purchase a new franchise off Harrisons at an entry level price.”
All franchisees receive a hands-on training system, have a dedicated support manager, and regular meetings with other like-minded owner operators. The Harrisons team ensure the setup cost for franchisees is low and no industry experience is required.
Harrisons is currently recruiting for the following specialty franchisees in the following areas:
- Solar & Energy: Northland, Wairarapa and Wellington.
- Carpet & Flooring: in Ellerslie/Pakuranga, Timaru and Whanganui and Christchurch.
- Curtains & Blinds: Whangarei, Kerikeri, Whanganui/Palmerston North, Rotorua, Blenheim, Bay of Plenty, Southland, Waikato North, Timaru and Southern Lakes.
