The Local Guys Core Values

Integrity embodies all that we do. Without this, any company will eventually fall apart. We believe in open, honest communication with our team and clients and always doing what is right!
If you don’t wake up every day and love what you do, you are in the wrong industry! We believe passion is what drives purpose, and purpose goes achievement! Our team is highly passionate about the test and tag industry, our Franchise Partners and the clients we support.
There is a big difference in how a company operates when safety is a core value! To us, safety must be a priority! We value safety in the workplace so that we can continue to protect ourselves and our clients. We believe in good communication, mutual trust, effective preventive measures and dedication to the organisation.
We are devoted to the satisfaction of our clients and the success of our Franchise Partners! This is why our team is heavily dedicated to training and development. Behind every successful business is a happy customer base. We do not do anything by halves, which is why we have made it our mission to maintain a loyal customer base while inviting new ones with open arms!
We are firm believers in the idea that if you don’t evolve, you die. Our team is always looking at ways to improve our systems better. We regularly are researching, training and learning for the growth of our brand, the development of our Franchise Partners, and to provide the best services possible to our clients. Nothing is perfect in life, but with innovation, you are one step closer!
At The Local Guys, rather than viewing our Franchise Partners and clients as ‘business transactions’, we consider each person who works with us as a part of our family. We endeavour to create a personal connection with everyone who works with our company. We are ‘people-persons’ and pride ourselves on the relationships we build within our franchise team.

A Decade of Experience: Meet Jarrad & Stacey Goulding

Jarrad and Stacey are the driving forces behind The Local Guys brand.

Prior to The Local Guys, Jarrad and Stacey both worked in various job roles. Jarrad travelled the world and experienced a range of opportunities until he found his passion in electrical test and tagging over 10 years ago. Stacey worked as a qualified accountant at a reputable firm.

As a married duo, Jarrad and Stacey have owned multiple hospitality and retail franchises and businesses. Having had previously been Franchise Partner’s themselves, Jarrad and Stacey worked in all areas of business (from marketing to accounting, all the way through to customer service).

As a result, these businesses enabled them to learn the franchise model from a Franchise Partner’s perspective. They quickly became aware of the positives and negatives of franchising and have used these experiences to shape The Local Guys brand. They know and understand what Franchise Partners are looking for in business and know what it takes to become a successful Franchise Partner.

However, with the desire to start a family and have a healthy work-life balance, they knew that the success and flexibility that the test and tag industry could offer them outweighed all other possibilities… and so this is where they decided to focus their attention. As a result, Jarrad and Stacey have never been happier, and in 2020 they welcomed their first child into the world.

Jarrad has been working in the test and tag industry for more than 10 years and has managed clients with 1 to 10,000+ items. Over the decade, Jarrad has proudly won and managed many large tenders with government bodies and commercial businesses nationally. Additionally, Jarrad has trained and supported many technicians over the years.

Jarrad and his team are exceptionally passionate about the industry and franchising. It’s this depth of experience and passion that he shares with the Franchise Partners.
