HEAR FROM SOME OF OUR HAPPY FRANCHISEES

Michelle (Dickson, ACT)

Embarking on a journey with Sharetea Australia was tremendous.  The last two years have been both challenging and rewarding, in the way that I was able to work with my dedicated staff, like-minded peer franchisees, and supportive HO teams, to win the hearts of our customers, in the turbulent time such as COVID.   We’ve built up, slowly but surely, our abilities to serve our lovely customers and through collaboration with others, contribute to the growth of the whole network.

Kim and Lan (Fairfield, NSW)

We both wanted to have an additional source of income and be our own boss, after researching the market, we found that Sharetea fit in with our goals and that the brand aligned with our intended market. We also found that investing in a well-known franchise made starting out much easier as the processes were already in place and enabled us to focus on other parts of the business as well as balance our family commitments. We’re grateful for the help and guidance from our area manager and this is particularly helpful in the early stages of growing the business! We also enjoy being a part of the store network and family.
