Turangi/Taupō welcomes new franchisees with high demand and low overheads

Tired of traffic jams, limited family time, high rents and impossible property prices? Ready for a balanced lifestyle that offers business growth with lots of leisure? Then consider taking up a franchise in Taupō District. Not only is the area nature’s ultimate playground, but Enterprise Great Lake will actively support franchisees and franchisors to set up business there.

‘Taupō District includes the town of Turangi at the southern end of the lake, and we have a massive need for businesses here, especially tradies,’ says Kylie Hawker-Green, general manager of Enterprise Great Lake Taupō. ‘The town has grown fast and with the new year-round gondola at Ruapehu the tourist season has extended, too. A lot of Taupō businesses are too busy to service Turangi, so there’s a huge market for plumbing and electrical maintenance franchisees, lawnmowing, gardening, home and commercial cleaning, building, landscaping, renovation and many more trades.


‘We have already helped more than 100 business owners relocate or start-up here, and welcome enquiries from franchisees and franchisors,’ says Kylie. ‘We will connect you with a dedicated Business Advisor who can answer any questions you may have about moving. They can help introduce you to the people in the know, help with validation questions and give you inside knowledge about our district.

‘Our Business Capability Development Scheme can fund up to 50 percent of training needs, and genuine newcomers can also access a suite of contributions to things like power phone and stationery.  Of course, not all benefits suit every type of business, but it makes the Taupō District a very attractive place to move to.

‘That’s even more true when you consider the fact that commercial leases are more affordable than big city prices, there are plenty of business spaces and workshops available, and the mortgage on the family home will be a lot smaller, too. This is why some of the most profitable franchises in the country operate outside the big cities – low overheads, less wasted travelling time and less stress!’


The Turangi/Taupō area is home to some of the country’s best lifestyle opportunities, with fishing, boating, mountain biking, hiking, skiing, hunting and motor sports on the doorstep. Centrally located, it also affords easy access to most parts of the North Island without the need to sit in traffic. ‘At the same time, it’s a growing economy with consistently high levels of GDP and population growth,’ says Kylie.

‘So whether you want to buy a franchise business, or move within your franchise to a more attractive area with big potential, talk to us about Taupō District. We’ll be happy to tell you (and your franchisor) all about the benefits of setting up business here and some of the great incentives we can offer to make life easier.
