New Leather Doctors Marty & Hayley Brownrigg
Sun burnt lounge
Here is a job we have just completed on a nice leather lounge at Crystal Creek Rainforest Resort near Murwillumbah, in Northern NSW.
There are no curtains in the unit as it overlooks the forest and the sun comes blaring through straight on to the lounge and had faded it badly on one side.
To get a good result we had to blend it in, however we did have to re dye all surfaces to make the blend look natural.
Welcome new Leather Doctor team Charles Ginty & Ashley McCormack
We would like to welcome new team Leather Doctors, Charles Ginty & Ashley McCormack. Charles and Ashley have taken over one of Paul Newnham's old territory of Port Macquarie, midway between Sydney and Brisbane. Paul has moved (up in the world) to the Brisbane territory of Sherwood. Together they will tackle one of the largest Leather Doctor territories and its surrounds of Port Macquarie.
Leather Doctor Franchise Journey - Werribee
With due consideration given to purchasing another franchise, the Archers settled on Werribee. At this stage this territory is mostly warranty work with little in the way of private customers. Keeping in mind the huge difference in demographic, the Archers see Werribee as an opportunity to replicate what they did in Geelong. They have a contractor (Tony) who has leased the warranty side of the operation. This arrangement allows Brett and Angela to focus on the private customers.
Leather Doctor Franchise Journey - Expansion
In business, options are always being explored. For the Archers it was the option to expand. “Given that we’ve only had the LD franchise in Geelong for about 9months, purchasing another franchise seemed a little premature. But if a door opens you at least need to see what's behind it”! Brett and Angela know the pros and cons associated with trying to get too big too soon. However, a LD franchise is truly a niche business that's gaining in both reputation and following.
