Three business models are now available

Pedders says part of the stimulant for its amazing growth has come primarily from the company’s move into franchising, an opportunity which came about as much by accident as by design.
It explains that franchising has allowed Pedders to widen its scope and distribute more products into the market without losing control of product quality and customer service standards.
Pedders explains that franchise system has now grown into three achievable business models.

Pedders Suspension and Brakes Franchisee
Pedders explains that it has a stringent process of inducting new Franchisees which is designed to both protect the existing group and increase its probability of getting the most suited people to grow the Pedders business.
After several initial interviews with State Operations Managers, potential Franchisees must attend a four-week instore induction program including one week at the Pedders Head Office in Melbourne, before being approved as a franchisee.

Pedders Authorised Dealership Network
Authorised Dealerships are privately run businesses which maintain the Pedders philosophy and offer the Pedders range of products and services.
Authorised Dealers are mainly chosen from already successful automotive aftermarket businesses which agree to undergo Pedders training and promote Pedders products and services within their own specific communities.

Manage to Own (new for 2021)
Pedders’ most recent franchise business opportunity offer is its new “Manage to Own” business model.
This enables pre-qualified candidates to invest into and manage a new or existing Pedders Suspension and Brakes franchise business for up to five years on a managed programme to own the business at the end of the five years as a Store Manager.
Along the way, there is a host of training and bonus performance targets applicable to meet with an overall five-year expectation.
After the five-year qualifying period is completed successfully, the candidate then becomes a fully-fledged franchise service centre owner.
Pedders says this is a unique opportunity for suitable candidates to purchase an independently successful franchise with low entry costs and shared/reduced business risk.
