Coastal Hire is a leading franchise in the rental of equipment to the construction industry, bakkie builders and the DIY market. With over 100 franchise stores trading in eight countries throughout Southern Africa, it is a well-established franchise that has been around for over 25 years and the average franchisee has been with the brand for over eleven years.
The franchise operates a different support system to most traditional franchises in that different support specialists deal with franchisees in different areas such as operations, finance, tax, business planning, technical, computer and social media support. This was normally done via store visits, regional quarterly meetings and annual conferences. Golf days were also extremely popular and hosted many of those all over the country every year.
