What do Aktiv Brands Franchisees Say? 

“One of the reasons we decided on a Franchise with Aktiv Brands was the tremendous support we received from the entire team at Head Office. However, this paled in comparison with the way the engine roared into gear once we opened our new store in Townsville! We found everyone to be extremely helpful and excited and everyone knew what they needed to get us up and running. The ongoing support is fantastic, and no question is so ridiculous for them to answer. We love the Skewerz brand and are excited about being with the Aktiv Brands family.”

- Andy May, Skewerz Kebabz Townsville

“We've been involved with Aktiv Brands since its beginning, and we wouldn't still be involved if we weren't happy. The support we get is terrific. The products are always being evaluated and new products are brought on line regularly to keep customer interested and ensure things don't get "old hat". It is a growing franchise that is gaining a higher and higher profile and that is good for us all. Graham and I are very happy with being part of the Aktiv Brands family.”

- Sue Carrington, Bucking Bull Lakeside Joondalup
