Business support & coaching
We believe that a business can only grow as fast as the business owner does. That means the more you grow, the more your business can. Our business support and coaching focuses on developing you and your business.
You can simply and easily gain triple certification under the Platinum brand. This straight away gives you a competitive advantage and credibility when trying to pitch for big business in your local area. For a third of the price of doing it on your own plus saving the hundreds of hours it took to develop the system, it’s a sure winner for you.
Get some extra work with our national clients
Our main focus and drive is definitely not spoon feeding work to franchise owners, as we believe in equipping and building leaders to grow their own business. If we teach you to do it, you’re set for life! However we do attract large national companies with work all over Australia and by default this means we give a lot of work to our franchise owners. We consider it a nice bonus!
Web based systems
All the systems to run a Platinum business are web based and extremely easy to use. Job management software, intranet with operations manual and supporting templates and vehicle tracking are all tools we use to run a great business. Our systems make you look professional which will definitely provide the WOW factor to your customers.
Hundreds of systems, procedures and templates
Our Platinum Intranet gives you direct online access to every system, step by step procedure, document and template to run a five star Platinum business. Everything from employment agreements for staff, cashflow spreadsheets, employment termination checklists. Anything you need, we’ve got it.
There’s power in numbers (and savings too!)
It sort of goes without saying, but instantly you gain the benefits the Platinum brand attracts as a national brand. Almost every expense associated with your business, you’ll find group discounts available to Platinum members. What you gain in savings to run a professional, reputable business far outweighs the minimal royalties you pay.
You’re never alone
We‘re not a set and forget model, so there is always somewhere here to help. Franchise owners often contact head office for support every day, if not every second and that is NO PROBLEM. We have a very ‘hands on’ approach to helping you grow your business. The comradery amongst fellow franchise owners is amazing too, so you will always feel like there is someone to bounce ideas with.
Work/Life Balance Culture
We teach you business skills that set you up for good work/life balance. We believe business should not be at the expense of time with friends and family and hobbies you love to do.
We will review and then contact you
A casual chat to gauge your suitability to the Platinum brand

In December 2001, Platinum Electricians was started by 22 year old Joshua Nicholls. With a dream to have a few employees, so he didn’t have to ‘work on the tools’, Platinum very quickly surpassed that goal and soon became one of Australia’s fastest growing companies.
Within 5 years, Joshua had totally worked himself out of the day to day operations of the business and had a General Manager in place. Faced with the ‘what next?’ question, Joshua than embarked on the two year journey of developing a franchising model. Franchising the Platinum brand was a strategy to gain greater exposure throughout Australia at the same time as giving other business owners the opportunity to learn how to build their own successful business.
Fast forward to today and Platinum now has over 160 vans on the road Australia wide, employing over 350 employees. What most excites Joshua and the Platinum team, however is the humanitarian impact Platinum has through it’s One Van One Child initiative as the company continues to grow.
