G.J. Gardner Homes was founded in 1983 when Greg Gardner began a building business on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia offering quality homes at an affordable price. In 1996, he decision was made to franchise the business, and the business grew from there.
"We decided to franchise in order to give our team the opportunity to really own the business. We found when people were given the reigns of what was effectively their own business, they rose to the challenge and created some great results. We have story after story of smaller builders who joined G.J. Gardner Homes who now enjoy the benefits of joining our group - better profits, the ability to work on the business not in the business, and most importantly - more time for them and their family", said Mr Wallis.
"Really it boils down to the fact that we love to see people succeed and do well, and the by product of that is we as a company do well also".
