The Truth about Helensvale… A Catch up with an Andersens Franchisee
24 June 2012 | Blog Cat
With over 50 stores across Queensland and Northern New South Wales and now boasting the largest warehousing facility in Queensland, Andersens is your one-stop flooring shop for quality carpet, timber, timber laminates, tiles, vinyl and bamboo flooring products.
We caught up with Andersens Helensvale’s Garth this week to talk to him about what being an Andersens man means to him!
How long have you worked for Andersens? It’s been 22.5 amazing years!
How many staff do you have in the store? We boast a modest compliment of two sales people, one admin person and another person in the warehouse.
Why do you love working at Andersens? Being responsible for other people in the store, of course meeting new people (especially our great customers!), and of course all the challenges and triumphs that go with the territory.
What’s your favourite product at the moment, and why? I’d have to say the Eversoft Stainmaster Range – it’s new, exciting and different (and it’s got some great marketing 😉
Why Andersens? Why should a client come to Andersens instead of another flooring store? Because we really are The Respected Name in floor and window coverings – we’ve been making Queensland homes beautiful for over 50 years!!
What’s unique about the Helensvale store? I’d have to say our exceptionally large display of bulk laminates, timbers and carpet tiles – you’re really spoilt for choice.
What would you say to people who are thinking about going into an Andersens franchise? I have encouraged and helped people become franchisees and will continue to do so – Being a Company store manager and shareholder it is something I am proud of.
Some personal fun questions!
What’s your favourite food? a bit boring… Fish and Chicken!
What do you like to do when you’re not working? Spending time with my wife, sailing and as any self respecting QLD’er … fishing
