The Mr Fix-It business description

The business of a Mr Fix-it franchise is a maintenance service for domestic, commercial and industrial clients – of their buildings, assets and grounds.

The franchise has an established proven formula whereby the franchisee can apply their aptitude for kiwi ingenuity, problem solving, tinkering, and hard work. The work undertaken by Mr Fix-it encompasses many activities of specialised trades and in many cases involves applying our skills to those awkward jobs that fall between the recognised trade skills. ‚Äč

The business was started in February 1998 and originated in Christchurch, New Zealand. The business concept was born out of the desire to apply practical skills to challenging tasks and to establish a life and work style to suit. Mr Fix-it is a lucrative business that started with an idea, utilising low-key marketing strategies and consistent quality of work.
