Part of the stimulant for Pedders amazing growth came primarily from the companies move into franchising, an opportunity which came about as much by accident as by design. Franchising has allowed Pedders to widen its scope and distribute more products into the market without losing control of product quality and customer service standards. The first official Pedders franchises were established in South Melbourne (VIC) and Launceston (TAS) in 1979 with other outlets appearing soon after. The basis of the franchise operation revolved around an on-going program of technical training backed by extensive sales and marketing support, ensuring strict corporate guidelines are met in every aspect of the company's operation.
Since beginning the franchise operation, Pedders has helped many franchisees establish successful businesses in their own right. The franchise operation has expanded at a constant rate around Australia and has spearheaded the group's expansion with similar operations in New Zealand, Asia and the USA.
