The Local Guys – Test & Tag team have been in the test and tag industry for over a decade. Over the 10+ years, we have had many successes, including:
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.
