Childcare sector boom fuels franchise opportunities in Townsville

Townsville is going places. As the largest city in Northern Australia, it’s the gateway to lush agricultural regions and popular beach destinations. However, as highlighted by demographer Bernard Salt in his 2016 report on the state of the QLD economy: ‘no city of comparable size has quite the connection into the future prosperity of the Australian nation as does Townsville.’

Certainly increased industrial activity in the area is pointing towards a citywide rejuvenation, with a large number of construction projects in the works for the coming year. All of which mean not only are there going to be more opportunities for small business, there are also going to be more parents looking for convenient child entertainment facilities.

According to market research agency IBISWorld, the Australian childcare industry is currently worth over $12 billion annually and projected to grow at an impressive rate of 9.2 percent per year.

If you’ve been looking for a business opportunity in the region, the perfect foothold could be one of the franchises offered by Croc’s Playcentres. Over the last eight years, Croc’s have rapidly become one of the most recognised names in the child indoor play sector. With fantastically coloured play areas and a roster of fun events such as themed disco nights, it’s an attractive destination for parents looking for kids’ entertainment options. Croc’s also have an exclusive partnership with bakery café franchise Muffin Break, meaning that harangued parents can relax with a great coffee whilst their children play safely in a supervised environment. These two great brands come in one franchise package.

Croc’s also offer comprehensive support to their franchisees. There is 100% operational support available at all stages of the business growth cycle, from small business training and assistance with finance applications, to accredited training for the Muffin Break café staff. Franchisees will also be able to leverage off national advertising and access a toolkit of multi-media marketing opportunities.
