                       WHAT IS FRANCHISING?

Many people think franchising is an industry, but it’s not, it’s simply a way of
doing business. A unique way to distribute independently.

There are key characteristics in the way all franchise companies do business.
First and most valuable is the unique, protected trademark. Each franchise
offers comprehensive training, not just the usual manual and product. There is
an on-going business relationship between the Franchisor, State and Regional
Licensee and the Franchise Owner. There are tested market plans, operating
manuals, standards and quality control.

Within the franchise system there is a lot of two-way communication and there
is a license agreement spelling out the business relationship. If the public
understood that franchising is basically only a tried-and-true, tested way of
doing business, some of the mystery and confusion would disappear.

The very first company to use a franchise system was the Singer Sewing
Machine Company in the 1860's. Singer turned to franchising because it was a
way of spreading inventory costs and establishing a dealer network that could
service, what was at the time, a fairly sophisticated piece of equipment.

In 1886, Coca-Cola turned to franchising, as a way of creating a network of
bottlers that would sell at the wholesale level.

Then, around the turn of the century, some manufacturers were working on a
new invention. This one cost even more than the sewing machine and it
demanded dealers at a local level who could service the thing. These
manufacturers turned to franchising and the automobile has changed the course
of history.

The automobile dealership and service stations were followed by the major oil
companies and eventually Holiday Inn, McDonald’s and Kentucky Fried
Chicken.

Franchising is a form of marketing that gives consumers what they want, when
they want it, the way they want it ... all at a price they can afford.

Customers want quality at a reasonable price, franchising with its system-wide
management controls, provides it. Consumers want consistent quality from a
name they can trust; franchising, with its quality standards and uniform trade
name, gives them just that.
                                                                             3

2.1 Internal

Internally, Cargroomers is a three-tiered franchise organisation comprising:

The National Franchisor
State and Regional Licensees, and
Franchise Owners.

Each Cargroomers participant has an individual role to play. However, as a franchise
team, all members collectively pool their experience, knowledge, and attributes to
ensure that Cargroomers operates effectively and optimally.

From 1974 to 1984 Errol was South Island Manager of a progressive National
Importing Company in New Zealand, Errol contributed to the firm's National
Marketing, Purchasing and Service policies.

Errol then established his own international trading firm involved in importation and
distribution of small engine parts for lawn mowers and chain saws. He was one of the
first to import ride-on mowers to New Zealand direct from the United States.

Following his arrival in Australia, Errol was instrumental in establishing the Budget
Hand Car Wash (now Cargroomers) franchise operation. His principal role as Co-
Director involved coordination of Technical and Product aspects of the operation.

In November 1990 he assumed the position of Sole National Franchisor for Budget
Hand Car Wash, now Cargroomers Australia. As the catalyst behind Cargroomers' new
business direction, Errol was the driving force behind the new Cargroomers image and
name, together with various new product developments and service improvements.

For the future, Errol, in his capacity as National Franchisor, is keen to continue
expansion of existing Cargroomers services and products, and to increase the earning
capacity of all Franchise Owners.

2.1.3 Franchise Owners

The role of the Cargroomers Franchise Owners is:

1.    To maintain any existing Cargroomers customers and to attract and secure
      potential Cargroomers' customers;
2.    To recommend and carry out in a competent manner Cargroomers car detailing
      service for the customer;
3.    To record the necessary customer information and relay this back to the State or
      Regional Licensee;
4.    If necessary, to implement marketing policies outlined at National or State level;
5.    To possess a thorough knowledge of all services and products and;
6.    To keep abreast of improvements to Cargroomers' products and services.

Experience:
Although experience in car washing and detailing is not a compulsory prerequisite to
become a franchise owner, a basic knowledge, appreciation and interest in cars is
favourable. A background in retailing and selling would also be a decided advantage,
but again, is not compulsory.

A Franchise Owner must have a greater than satisfactory ability to work with people
and communicate well with customers.

Personality & Attitude:
                                                                                         11

The Franchise Owner is the prime ambassador for Cargroomers. Franchise Owners
are our frontline sales people whose personality and attitude dictate how Cargroomers
is perceived in the eyes of customers. Therefore effective communication skills and the
ability to deal with all kinds of people are essential. A positive and enthusiastic attitude
is compulsory. A Franchise Owner must work well individually and feel comfortable
in a team situation.

Finance:
The Franchise Owner must be in the position to finance his/her own business.

Age:
There is no age restriction. However, a minimum of 20 years is desirable due to the
maturity and experience levels needed to competently execute the role of Franchise
Owner.

Health:
In the Franchise Owner's best interest it is advisable that he/she be of reasonable health
to avoid down-time due to illness or injury.

Business/Work History:
Franchise Owners must have had a stable work history and be in a position to furnish
positive employment and character references.

2.2 External

When Cargroomers has been unable to source certain expertise internally, these
professional services have been obtained from external organisations.

The main areas of expertise called upon cover the disciplines of the law and
accounting. Profiles on these organisations, which advise Cargroomers at a national
level, are contained in the Appendix to this franchise proposal.

3.0 Cargroomers' Products and Services
Cargroomers market a range of car detailing services and a range of retail products to
its customers, manufactured by Cargroomers Queensland Pty Ltd. at the Brisbane
plant. By using Cargroomers the customer is assured of receiving a comprehensive,
convenient service at an affordable price.

Customers can have their vehicles washed, polished, waxed and detailed at their homes
or places of work. With standard service prices starting at $39 including GST for the
Deluxe Wash and Wax Plus, and progressing through to the Premier Wash and Polish
Plus, marketed at $187 including GST, the Franchise Owners have a large scope and
earning capacity.

4.0 The Cargroomers' Franchise Option
                                                                                       12

Cargroomers State and Regional Licensees allocate each Franchise Owner a specific
Franchise Area on a Post Code basis.

This area will feature domestic, retail, commercial and industrial customers, all of
which are potential clients.

The cost of a Cargroomers franchise is $29 950 including GST. Cargroomers provides

4.1 Professional Support

Cargroomers Australia will provide the Franchise Owner/Operator with the necessary

assistance to its Franchise Owners.

Assistance and support with any technical or operational issues or problem is simply a
phone call away, and when necessary on-site assistance can be provided.
