Become a Foundation One franchisee

A great opportunity to grow your own success


Why a Foundation One franchise?

Since launching in 2015, Foundation One has grown steadily and is now a market leader in commercial property maintenance and refurbishment.

The time has come to share that success with others who share our passion and commitment for great customer service.

Foundation One was launched in 2015 to bring a new level of professionalism and expertise to the industry. Owner Daniel Nixon has spent over 20 years in the sector, taking care of clients across Australia and New Zealand in every commercial sector and multiple government agencies.

Daniel is a strong leader who brings out the best in the people around him.

What we do

Commercial buildings are major investments that demand skilled and experienced professionals to ensure they perform as designed for decades to come.

Our team work with clients to ensure they have the correct information for planning to keep buildings running smoothly – now and over time. Our qualified tradespeople then deliver the work, freeing our clients up to focus on their business.

Our excellence in customer service and business management has seen us nominated as a finalist in the Westpac Business Awards for the last two years running.

The opportunity

Internationally, Facilities Management is big business. In New Zealand the industry is still in its infancy, but growing fast. That creates a massive opportunity for those who get in on the ground floor.

As a franchisee, you’ll get to build a significant business using a proven model backed by systems, processes and business tools refined over a period of years.

You’ll work with commercial building owners, managers, government departments, councils and body corps to deliver long term maintenance and capital works to protect their assets and maximise their returns. In essence, you’ll be a project manager, building a network of skilled and trusted tradesmen to deliver the work on your behalf.
