It was the opportunity to introduce an entirely new service that first attracted Mildura couple Bruce and Sue Liddell to the Gutter-Vac concept.
Bruce was surfing the internet looking for a new business opportunity when he saw an existing Gutter-Vac franchise for sale in Perth.
‘Obviously that didn’t stack up from a geographic perspective’ Bruce quipped, but it did direct the former Broken Hill miner to the Gutter-Vac web site.
‘I thought Gutter-Vac was a unique service and a great idea. More to the point there was nothing like it throughout the whole Sunraysia district.’
Having operated their own convenience store for the past eight years, Bruce and Sue are well versed at working together. Now that they have taken on a Gutter-Vac franchise, Bruce is enacting the practical side of the business while Sue remains responsible for marketing and admin.
It’s an exciting time’ Bruce added, ‘and given we have a territory that stretches from Mildura to my old stamping ground of Broken Hill, there’s plenty to be getting on with!’
