"Choosing to join the Shoebox Books Franchise group has been one of the best decisions I have made. The level of continued support and encouragement from head office is outstanding. From the very start they have given me the confidence to grow my business with their marketing strategies and the knowledge there is a team to back me up if and when I need it. The camaraderie between other Shoebox franchisees is something I truly treasure.”
Robyn Hodge - Shoebox Books Brisbane North East & Redcliffe
"As a franchisee of Shoebox Books, I want to thank Head Office for all their support over the last three and half years both professionally and personally. This is truly a great family atmosphere. It has been an amazing journey and I have learnt so much from you all. I especially love all the processes that you have in place that make my life easier and enable me to meet all my client’s needs.”
Debbie Curnow – Shoebox Books Adelaide West
"The best decision I made was to join the Shoebox Books group as a franchisee three years ago. The staff at Head Office are the most supportive and friendly group of people and are always there when you need them. They are always encouraging our growth, both personally and professionally and have great systems and procedures in place to allow franchisees to thrive and succeed in their own businesses.”
Dini Thompson - Shoebox Books Bunbury-Busselton
"I have been with the Shoebox Franchise team since November 2015. I had previous small business experience and had just completed Cert 3 & 4 in Business Administration in 2014. I was keen to start a small business so that I had time, flexibility and control of my own destiny. My husband and I met with Sandie & Yvette in July 2015 and immediately felt at ease; all the information was provided up front. We immediately felt they had an excellent knowledge of the business and the market.
In the early days, as with all small business there are bridges to cross. In my case there was many obstacles to overcome, but from Day 1 I had full support from Sandie & Yvette and this still continues today. I have now attended 3 annual conferences and enjoy very good relationships with the Shoebox Team and other franchisees. The ongoing support and assistance with everyday queries are more than I had expected and the franchise support team are always available to assist in my personal development."
Kathie McGow - Shoebox Books Gold Coast Central
"I joined the Shoebox Team as the very first franchisee in January 2013. I was an experienced bookkeeper with over 25 years of knowledge, however I wanted the support of a franchise in order to start my own business. I met with Sandie and Yvette and felt instantly that their franchise was the type I wanted to be involved in.
I am regularly kept up to date with changes in the legislation and always have their support.My lifestyle has completely changed and I am now able to enjoy a better balance between work and fitness. I now participate in marathons and tough mudder challengers - it has been a great journey!"
