Established in 1990 “The Franchise Coach” is one of New Zealand’s first organisations dedicated specifically to providing the necessary levels of support, services, and mentoring to prospective and new franchisors throughout New Zealand. It has helped over 150 companies to develop their systems and pursue their franchising goals.
Founded by David McCulloch, the business has been acquired by Stewart Germann of Auckland.
“The Franchise Coach” is a foundation member of the Franchise Association of New Zealand (FANZ) and both David and Laurel McCulloch were made Life Members in 2012 and 2017 respectively (pictured). In addition, David who is a past Chairman of FANZ was awarded Hall of Fame membership in 2015 and “The Franchise Coach” has been awarded “Service Provider of the Year” by the FANZ.

He has considerable international experience in franchising and has won multiple awards for excellence and is the only person in NZ with the qualification CFE (Certified Franchise Executive) awarded by Australia and USA.
