"We’ve been part of the Clark Rubber network for more than 17 years, and we now operate two Clark Rubber stores in Perth, Western Australia.
A key factor in our decision to join Clark Rubber was the strength of the brand. This, combined with Clark Rubber’s unique range of products, means that we have a strong market position.
The strong working relationship that we have with Clark Rubber as the Franchisor has been invaluable, as is the ongoing business support that they provide. This has had a significant positive impact on the success of our businesses”.

"The strength of the brand was what encouraged us to look into Clark Rubber as a business opportunity. We were previously customers at another Clark Rubber store, and we noticed that every time we visited the store, there was always plenty of customers. After much due diligence, we decided to take on the Clark Rubber franchise in Toowoomba.
We’re relatively new to the Clark Rubber business, but it has been great so far. The team at Clark Rubber has been fantastic, helping us to not only understand the business but also guide us through the product selection, local marketing and systems training.
Our store has had some really strong growth and we continue to see it perform beyond our initial expectations”.

“We’re the franchisees of the Campbelltown and Penrith Clark Rubber stores in New South Wales, and we’re proud to have been part of the Clark Rubber family for more than 22 years. As well as our two retail stores, we also operate 3 pool care vans, which allows us to provide a full service to our customers.
The support that we have received from the Clark Rubber team over the years has made a significant contribution to our business. We especially value the reporting and data that we have access to, as it provides the insights needed to help us manage our business more efficiently and effectively.
Clark Rubber has been a big part of our life, and it is great to see the brand continue to grow and strengthen year after year.”
