    FAQ

    • Why buy a franchise over starting a business from scratch?

      When you buy a franchise you are buying a readymade business format that someone else has researched and developed for you. It’s like buying someone else’s bright idea – one that someone else has already proved does actually work!

      The time and cost of setting up a new business from scratch is huge and often underestimated. While you may be a fantastic at a particular part of business, design of a brand, creating a website, creating stationery, setting up email and social media accounts, advertising, creating systems, managing customers, compliance with legislation such as Health & Safety, small business accounting, to name a few are all necessities of business. Buying a franchise provides all of these ready to go.

      It is proven that only 15% of small small businesses survive their first two years of operation, whereas franchise businesses have a 90% chance of succeeding. This is mainly due to the support and proven systems provided by the franchise group.

    • Why buy a franchise from The ProGroup?

      Because the market demand for The ProGroup range of franchise services is absolutely massive.

    • Can I have multiple income streams?

    • Do you have what it takes?

      Of course you do! At The ProGroup we provide a comprehensive training program plus all the tools and equipment necessary to run a successful business.

If you have an eye for detail, are quality focussed, have good DIY skills, and are a people person then we want to talk to you. The vast majority of our franchise owners have had no prior experience in the type of work they now do. They all simply have a desire to work for themselves.

    • What is your investment?

      Franchises are available between $15k and $40k. That investment includes everything you need such as, tools, training, products, sales and marketing material but does not include a van and office equipment. No experience is needed as we’ll teach you everything you need to know.
