Our Franchise Packages

Hire A Hubby offers three distinct categories of territories. Bronze, Silver and Gold. To categorise a territory, we review the statistics and demographics of the suburbs within the territory. This allows you to see where the strengths and opportunities are. Part of the research is to compare territories that are within your travel distance to see which would suit you best.

Hire A Hubby caters for all business types, whether that be an individual who wants to remain as a ‘Man in a Van’ or for someone who would like to grow their business and employ staff and contractors to develop a multi-person operation. The Bronze, Silver and Gold territory categories will help guide you as to what territory would suit based on what you are looking to achieve with your Hire A Hubby franchise.

Financing your Business

Now you’ve considered everything involved in being a successful Hire A Hubby Franchisee, you may also need to investigate the options to purchase the business. For most people, this will mean financing. Most Franchisees will seek additional finance to purchase the business, this is due to most people not being in the financial position to pay cash for the business and most accountants suggesting to borrow for the business to achieve taxation benefits.

When it comes time to look at what options are available, Hire A Hubby has established relationships with banks and lenders, that are familiar with the security of our business model. We would be happy to discuss in more detail your financial positions and the options open to you.
