Connect with The Leather Doctor

The Leather Doctor is Australia’s Largest Mobile Furniture repair network.

The Leather Doctor franchise has been operating for 28 years. Established in1989, we are Australia’s largest mobile furniture repair network, with 62 franchises in operation across Australia (some of which have been operating for over 20 years with the same franchisee, and others which have come on as recently as a few months ago with young couples investing in the opportunity).

With a unique business model and an abundance of work for franchisees, The Leather Doctor network has rapidly grown both nationally, and also internationally into the United Arab Emirates and New Zealand.

We have engaged experts to join our team to develop customised systems, professional marketing material and finesse our exclusive repair and restoration training processes.

Leather Doctors generate work via both commercial and domestic/private streams. The commercial side of the business sees the franchisees service the leather and furniture repair needs of major national retailers such as Freedom Furniture, Harvey Norman, Super Amart and Fantastic Furniture just to name a few. Our Australian commercial system alone contributed over $4.5 million in sales to Franchisees last year alone.

The second stream of work is generated via private work that franchisees both directly source and which also come about as a result of repair work that is generated through our sister company (Care Cover).

The Leather Doctor's reputation in the Franchise community is exceptional. We were awarded as 'finalists' in the 2016 Franchise Council of Australia's National Franchise Awards, we have a brilliant support team, very little to no competition and a set of systems that are second to none.

If you are interested in finding out more, don't hesitate to contact us. There are a limited number of Franchises available for investment at the moment.

We also asked our franchisees questions about why they decided to become a Leather Doctor, and what about their work they love. Here’s what they said:

The Archers, Geelong and Werribee Leather Doctor territories

1. What made you decide to become a Leather Doctor?

What we like about The Leather Doctor, is that they are a tried and true successful international brand. We believe, like us, they have strong values and have fostered an open and honest culture with franchisees, suppliers and customers alike. We were looking for a business that would assist our family in achieving our goals. A business that has all the aforementioned attributes and one that is also interested in growing and adding value. It also come down to timing, as we were looking to take a leap of faith. There is also the timing of The Leather Doctor expanding into our home town of Geelong and being in a financial position to consider this. Since the Geelong territory, we have also invested in the Werribee territory.


2. What do you love about your work?

Every day is different. We also love the fact that we are able to bring a smile to our customer's faces when we breathe life back into something that was almost out of breath.

The Minards, Rockhampton territory

1. What made you decide to become a Leather Doctor?

We wanted to find an opportunity where we could work together as a husband and wife team, utilising our accumulated skills and strengths. We hoped that we could find something that would also generate an uncapped income and would enable us to work towards a debt free lifestyle/semi-retirement.


2. What do you love about your work?

Control! It is so nice to have control of our own time, we get to plan our own schedules and time off plus the harder we work the more we earn, so it is very rewarding to be in control of that side of things also.
