South Island Recession Hammered by Hubbies

Media Release: For Immediate Release: Tuesday 28th July 2009

South Island Recession Hammered by Hubbies

South Island men looking for a way to hammer the recession can look no further than a Hire-AHubby franchise business.

“To beat the recession, the Hire-A-Hubby franchise has the support base that gets in behind every successful Hubby, and in these economic times with redundancies and job uncertainty at an all time high, getting into your own business provides people with more choice” says Hire-A-Hubby CEO Andrew Chisholm.

Mr Chisholm said the company has taken the Hire-A-Hubby roadshow to the South Island this week wanting to meet and talk with people who are looking for new opportunities and to take control of their future.

Hire-A-Hubby has a distinct advantage of being the only franchise that offers a complete home maintenance service that’s professional and totally customer focused. A Hire-A-Hubby franchise offers people a chance to spend more time with their family, while generating a rewarding income Mr Chisholm said the Hire-A-Hubby franchise provides a start-up package including full training and a mentoring programme, marketing support and a network of other Hubbies that support each other.

Hire-A-Hubby was launched in Australia in 1994 and New Zealand in 1998 with its New Zealand operation owned by Franchise Business Limited. It provides all home maintenance services from landscaping, decking, minor renovations, painting and general odd jobs around the house. “Hire-A-Hubby has been in business for over 15 years and is part of the largest home services franchise group in New Zealand but we only have 31 dedicated franchise opportunities in the South Island,” Mr Chisholm said. “People are going to have to be quick”.
