About Tereza Murray

Tereza became involved in franchising in 2006 when she and husband Steve franchised their commercial property services business, started in 1999. The business grew to a substantial size with hundreds of clients and a staff of 60. The move to franchising saw them transition from 60+ employees to 22 franchisees over 3 years.

"Without a doubt it was the best decision we could have made. Going from having employees to owner-operators who were passionate about what they were doing, and about delivering a superior service to our clients, was the best thing we could have done. It also meant, we now had time to work 'on' the business and focus on our growth strategy, this resulted in our growth soaring and costs plummeting."

Having experienced first hand the benefits and advantages of franchising, as well as the challenges and frustrations, Tereza is in a unique position to prepare her clients for whats ahead of them and guide them through all aspects of becoming a Franchisor.

Tereza has been developing franchise systems for clients since 2013, working with business owners across multiple industries, including establishing and rolling out the global franchise model for the third largest facilities management company in the world.

  • "Seamless operation"

    Transitioning our business model to a franchise system has been a seamless operation with the guidance and resources Tereza Murray provided from the outset. Just fifteen months since launch we have created a new industry and established a national network across New Zealand that nears franchise capacity....and she's been there every step of the way helping us make it happen. Australia is the next challenge but we know with her support setting up Master Franchises will be correctly structured and systems enabled to manage this remotely in the COVID marketplace.

  • "I have no hesitation in recommending Tereza"

    Tereza has a strong, commercial understanding of franchising and developing robust, sustainable franchise systems and teams. Building a solid operational framework to support growth and performance for the business was a key focus, as was the Franchisee recruitment and on-boarding process which was successfully implemented with Tereza’s support. I have no hesitation in recommending Tereza.

  • "Our team appreciated Tereza's down-to-earth-approach "

    As a start-up, Tereza really listened to what we were trying to achieve and was able to provide advice and guidance where needed, ultimately resulting in the development of a very comprehensive operating system. Our team appreciated Tereza’s down-to-earth approach to the entire process and found her easy to work with and very knowledgeable. The ongoing support Tereza has provided has been very valuable and with 18 franchises sold in our first 2 years, we are well on track.

  • "All her knowledge wasn’t just theory from a book"

    “Before engaging with Tereza, I met with a couple of other well-known franchise consultants.  I liked how she had lots of experience and her knowledge wasn’t just theory from a book. Tereza was very down to earth and I found the process very smooth.  She delivered exactly what she said, when she said.  She was very thorough and methodical.  Tereza applied her knowledge and experience to guide us towards a more considered proposition and plan. I have no issues recommending Tereza and her team to anyone considering franchising their business.”
