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.
