With years of experience in the steel building industry, THE Shed Company Franchise offers all the ingredients required for those looking to run their own highly successful business.
Outstanding Product Range
Our steel buildings have a variety applications including:
- Farm & Machinery Sheds
- Garages & Garaports
- Equine & Livestock Structures
- Industrial & Commercial Buildings

- Garden sheds
Versatility & Custom Designs
THE Shed Company’s product range has been designed to provide versatility and flexibility in meeting our customer’s needs and wants. Our market leading software allows you to create customised buildings for all applications. It factors in site specific engineering on all designs and produces plans and drawings that are engineer certified and ready for submission to local councils.
Strength to Endure
All of the structural elements of our buildings are manufactured from 100% Australian BlueScope high-tensile cold rolled steel. Cladding and custom designed flashings are available in heavy duty ZINCALUME® and COLORBOND® steel. THE Shed Company is ShedSafe accredited which means our designs fully comply with the Building Code of Australia and national standards. Our designs and documentation have been reviewed and approved by an independent engineer, providing confidence for our clients that they are purchasing high quality products.
National Reach with Local Feel
We manufacture in all States and Territories around Australia from 23 sites and offer free delivery in metropolitan areas and major rural centres. Each store services their local region yet has the buying power of a major national company.
Unlike most Franchises in the Australian market we do not charge our Franchisees any Royalty Fees. We succeed when you succeed. In addition to this we don’t charge ongoing fees for the use of our brand, software and systems.
This provides us with an even greater incentive to make sure you have everything working smoothly in your business and that you are thriving.
Excellent Cash Flow
Our stores carry no stock and customers pay prior to their steel building being manufactured. This provides an environment for excellent cash flow; provided that you manage your overheads properly (we’ll show you how to do that). There are very few businesses in the marketplace that can offer this kind of advantage.
Low Entry Cost
Whilst there is a $35,000 (plus GST) Franchise Fee we spend the majority of it on you and your business to help you get established.
This support includes design/quoting software, initial store opening/launch advertising, signage for your premises, internal artwork displays, component displays, vehicle signage/wraps, uniforms, training, stationary, brochures and promotional material. We will work with you to determine the best means of using the Franchise Fee for your benefit.
THE Shed Company has Franchisees that have prior experience in the building industry and those that do not. Whether you are a builder or not the most important attributes you can bring with you to be successful are your ability to deal with people, your ability to organise and a passion to succeed.
Our unique online pre- training program provides you with an initial immersion into what you need to know before you visit our National Training Centre for more advanced one-on-one training on the use of our design, quoting, ordering and invoicing software. During your time at the National Training Centre you will also meet and receive training from THE Shed Company support team in all aspects of the business including product, systems, software, sales, marketing, technical, administration and operational procedures.
Following this you will have the opportunity to spend time with an existing Franchisee in his territory, participating in day to day activities and learning more about sheds and THE Shed company system. Once this is completed and you return to your territory THE Shed Company will send a team member there to assist you with the setup of your business, including building a network of shed erectors and to help you process your initial orders.
Once you are operating on your own you will have ready access to telephone and email support from THE Shed Company support team that you will meet while at the National Training Centre.
Marketing has always been a key element of THE Shed Company success story. Our industry leading Marketing Team will support you in executing local campaigns across your territory. They also manage the national website and can offer support for search engine optimisation and pay per click campaigns. We have a full time Graphic Designer on our team who can provide custom artwork for you without charge.
