Buffed Franchise

Leather polishing - Shoe shine

NO LONGER FRANCHISING If this is a mistake please contact our Franchise Support for update.

Buffed is a network of shoe shine stands across Australia and Australia's first social franchise. Founded by the Wise Foundation in 2011, Buffed creates real business opportunities for people whose employment outlook is limited - such as the long term unemployed or underemployed. We offer opportunities for these people to secure their futures through small business ownership - the shoe shine stand.

Buffed would probably still be a nice idea on the back of a napkin (from an airport in Spain!) if it were not for our partners. These organisations are not simply financial sponsors (although that has certainly helped) but true partners in their overall contribution, guidance and assistance to the development of Buffed.

With the strong desire to build a model that is self-sustaining, the partnerships are truly about generating mutual value. Our goal is that Buffed businesses will create as much value for our partners as we receive from them.

It's time to give yourself permission to build your days around what's important to you! You're in Control!
