Become Your Own Boss

Leather Doctor Franchisees come from all walks of life. A background in the industry is not required as extensive, practical training is provided. On top of loving DIY, we’re after team players with brilliant customer service skills. As you’d imagine, repair skills are just the beginning. To run a successful Leather Doctor Franchise, you’ll need to have good time management skills, a strong customer service ethic and be able to work to a schedule. You should have excellent communication and people skills and a genuine commitment to quality customer service. We’re looking for people who are passionate about being their own boss, so you’ll need to be organised and motivated.

  • Emergency services
  • Transport and Logistics
  • Service staff
  • Education and Training
  • Hospitality
  • Military

Extensive and in depth training is a very important part of the induction process for new Leather Doctor Franchisees. As many of the Leather Doctor Franchisees do not have any prior experience in leather or vinyl repair work, our 3-week intensive training program has been designed to ensure that all new franchisees feel confident in performing the services they will be required to offer once operating their own business.

All training is conducted at our purpose built training centre on the Gold Coast by our highly skilled and experienced professional Training Manager who also runs a successful Leather Doctor franchise.

Following the initial training, all Leather Doctors are granted unlimited access to an exclusive training platform, providing an extensive array of videos and programs to ensure they are able to perform all necessary skills and services to the highest possible standards, and that they are able to access information on new skills or techniques as required.

Now you’ve considered everything involved in becoming a Leather Doctor Franchisee, you may also need to investigate the options to purchase a business. For most people, this will mean financing.

Most franchisees will seek additional finance to purchase their business, as they are not in a position to pay the entire sum in cash, and also due to possible taxation benefits that may be derived.

When it comes time to look at what options are available, The Leather Doctor are happy to discuss options open to you based on your financial position.

Starting off properly in any small business is important. For a new Leather Doctor Franchisee, there is a formal start up process that must be undertaken to ensure they are able to confidently offer the services their customers will require and are ready to successfully build their business.

The first step is training! All new franchisees undergo an intensive 3 week training course which covers the key areas of running a Leather Doctor business as well as insights into the furniture repair industry.

After the completion of training at our custom made training facility, you will work with a Leather Doctor out in the field to experience the day to day  requirements of running a Leather Doctor franchise.

Following the formal training program, The Leather Doctor Head Office team, consisting of operations, marketing, booking and training teams are on hand to help you smoothly transition into independently and successfully running your own territory, and are always available to answer questions and ensure that you are able to expertly service your customers.
