Communication, Training & Support
The reasons for starting and running your own home building franchise are as plentiful as they are diverse. But deciding to buy your own building business is also daunting and requires a leap of faith. It requires product knowledge, business skills, sales, and more than anything, hard work.
Therefore, a vital component in Stroud Homes management is to provide franchisees with a professional team behind them, readily available to give training and support along their business trajectory.
“That is why Stroud Homes has been so successful,” explains Franchise Development Manager, Matthew Wright. “Our support to the franchisees is superior.”
As a Stroud Homes owner and builder, you can always rely on having a dedicated head office team to help you from training through to cash flow management, which according to Matthew is the biggest killer of small businesses.
“Part of the training we provide here at Stroud Homes is helping the new builder understand cash flow, which is paramount to succeeding in your business. No builder is an Island; you become part of the Stroud tribe.”

The enterprise’s well-thought-out communication module and creation of software and training systems has allowed new entrepreneurs to flourish in the project home making business around Australia, at a rapid pace.
“At Stroud homes we have worked with many different builders and from all walks of life,” says Matthew. “And we have a lot younger builder age which sets us apart and drives us to succeed. We work with them continually to overcome the many obstacles new builders face.”
The foremost thing that makes the Stroud Homes franchise concept different from others is their background as a franchisee, Matthew explains. “We know what it feels like to be a franchisee and that understanding affects everything we do,"
“Communication is key in a successful business and at Stroud Homes we cultivate an open communicative culture between the franchisees, but also with the administrative team and clients.”
