Become a Licensee

Our business enquiry and brand is growing and we’re looking for new Sunshade licensees to help meet the demand. A Sunshade Licensee opportunity is similar to a franchise opportunity, but with a greater deal of autonomy to run your business your way.

Our culture is important to us, so we’re looking for people who operate with the same philosophy as ours.

It’s simple:

  • Excellence in customer service.
  • Honesty and integrity in all that we do.
  • A focus on high quality solutions that meet the customer’s needs and expectations, to make their outdoor space more liveable and lovable.

Benefits of Being a Sunshade Licensee:

  • Put your trade skills to use with the autonomy of your own business
  • Like a franchise opportunity, but with more room to move
  • Generate regular, quality leads from a well-oiled online sales machine
  • Work with a group of NZ professionals and share ideas to learn and grow together
  • Enjoy the benefits of operating under an established national brand, recently sharpened up in 2021 (previously 0800 Sunshade)
  • How much you want to scale is up to you
  • Centralised design support and installation advice from experienced Hawke’s Bay Head Office
  • Annual conference to help build the brand together
  • Experienced support to mentor and grow your business should you want it

What our other Licensees say:

“Finding a business that has both business and marketing support was important to me, whilst still allowing me the control of operating and running my own business. Providing shade solutions is rewarding and seeing the stylish finish to our projects provides me with a sense of real achievement. Having the other Licensees in the group also allows me the opportunity to float ideas and brainstorm new ideas and different ways to design and install.”
