You may be thinking why would running a Grayson’s franchise benefit me?  Well just to name a few positives, you will be your own boss, you will learn a range of new skills and at the same time Graysons’ will offer you the support you need to get up and running.  Not to mention, you can work outdoors and increase your health and fitness while working.  

So, if you are eager to start a new chapter, to learn new skills and have a strong work ethic then read below to see the success story from McDonald Silver who is a new franchisee to Grayson’s Gutter Guard.

McDonald Silver arrived in Australia in 2008 as a Nursing student. His very first job was working as a Gutter Cleaner and Gutter Guard installer for Graysons. This helped him make a steady income while he continued his studies. 

After working in the Medical industry as a Nurse for over a decade, along came the added pressure of the COVID pandemic.  He started to consider other potential options for his future and in the back of his mind was his memory of working as a Gutter Cleaner. In 2021 he approached Graysons and expressed his keen interest in becoming the Franchisee for the Wallan area of Graysons. 

He was aware of the expansion of Graysons particularly in the gutter guard industry. McDonald signed on as a franchisee in November 2021, he also attended the Melbourne Franchise Expo 2022 to help man the Graysons Gutter Guard stand. 

McDonald is now proud to say hes generating a growing income and learning new things everyday by being out and about working on various properties. Hes cleaning gutters on residential, commercial and government buildings and also installing the Graysons product range of gutter guards and bird proofing.

Asked what do you like most about being a Graysons franchise?” he said, Theres a real variety in  the type of jobs Im doing and the locations Im working at which makes it fun. I get to set my own hours which means I can also spend more quality time with my Wife and kids! I get out of it what I put in. The ongoing support is great. We purchase stock as a group so we get materials and equipment at a great price. Being located in a newer area like Wallan theres lots of work on building sites and also the installs of bird proofing for solar panels.” 

McDonald is happy to talk with anyone who applies as a Graysons franchisee and looks forward to meeting the next members of the group!
