“The Bedshed team assisted us with everything ahead of our opening – lease negotiations, floor layout, operations, merchandising, staff interviews, marketing, financial matters, training, IT. They held our hands from the word go. It gave us a great deal of confidence,”
Patrick Weiner, Bedshed Nunawading Victoria
“The main driver was that I wanted a business that would let me balance work commitments and time with my wife and two children. Now if I want a day off with the kids, I can do that. It’s a big plus…. I am also a member of Bedshed’s Franchise Advisory Council, giving me input into key business decisions. I’m involved at a macro level, and on a micro level I decide how to manage and run my own store.”
Laurence Arnell-Smith, Bedshed Rockingham, Western Australia
“As a business owner, I’m extremely focussed on growing my business and that’s how I spend most of my time. But I also enjoy the flexibility that comes with running my own show, which means I can juggle work and family without the challenges of answering to someone else or placing an added burden onto others ... That’s why Bedshed is such a good match for me ... I can afford to live the lifestyle I love and I also have greater control over my work schedule.”
Katy Gennai - Bedshed Watergardens, VIC.
“We work hard at maintaining good relationships with our business associates. We’ve received plenty of advice from the most unexpected places and people, all of which has been invaluable in growing our business successfully. The encouragement and support I received from Bedshed when I relocated my store 12 months ago made the process easy. It helped me focus on what's important in running my business - my customers. For customers, buying a bed is not a quick process. It's more than buying a bed. It's about getting a better night’s sleep to improve your life. It’s a satisfying business because at the end of the day that’s what we’re helping people do"
