Catmax Franchises in Australia | Catmax Australia



At Catmax we are constantly looking to expand to meet the ever-growing need of the community to protect their animals from accidents and disease and improve the living standards of cats everywhere.

And with 25% of Australian homes now owning a cat, there is enormous financial potential in a Catmax franchise, as well as the pleasure that comes from improving the lives of domestic cats.

Our most successful franchisees are fun, team players and hard working people, have an easy manner, a background in handyman/construction and problem solving, love talking to people and advising them on what solutions they can provide.

They like to help cat owners improve the management of their cats, and are proud of what they design. They also can communicate well, and will go that extra mile to make sure customers get what they expect.

But above all, they want to bring about a better world for animals and they enjoy helping cats and their owners lead a better lifestyle.

So if you’ve been searching for a business opportunity, get in touch with us to explore the potential of a Catmax franchise for your area.

Catmax Cat Enclosures in Brisbane


Cat Enclosures BrisbaneA little more than six months after David Zammit took on Catmax’s first franchise, he told us that it was working out far better than he ever dreamed.

“I’d been a Catmax agent for over a year and seen the huge market potential there is for cat enclosures in Brisbane,” David said.

“I saw a franchise as the perfect vehicle to derive the benefits of operating under a well established name and system, and profit more from my work.”

“Now I enjoy much better returns for the time and effort I put in. Owning my own franchise gives me the capacity to plan for my financial future.”

He says that the back-up from head-office management has been prompt and useful. This, combined with the proven demand and growing market makes a Catmax Franchise an ideal investment.

If you want a business in a niche and expanding market and want a good return on your hard work a catmax franchise is definitely worth a look at,” David says.

Enclosures in Perth


Cat Enclosures Perth

Wow!! What a fantastic start to a new business! After 5 weeks of intensive training in Brisbane on all aspects of running a Catmax Franchise, we have hit the ground running.My first job was for a delightful family and their cats Zorro and Asha. They were all very understanding and with their cats are now enjoying the freedom of their new cat enclosure in Perth. To quote — “Very happy — looks great — cats love the extra space and freedom. Us too!”

I am thoroughly enjoying my new job as a Catmax Franchisee and the challenges of setting up my own business. I look forward to meeting many other Perth people and helping them with their cats.”


Catmax Newcastle / Sydney


Cat Enclosures Sydney

Graham and Vivien Mannes wanted a cat enclosure in Sydney to protect their Burmese cat, Cosmo. After researching enclosures on the internet, they discovered Catmax. Thing is, they were so impressed by the concept, the quality of the product and what they read of other franchises that it motivated them to start a franchise of their own as well!

As well as enabling the pair to help fellow cat lovers, and to help protect the environment, a franchise even meshed with their desire to move to Port Stephens.

After completing their training, Graham and Vivien based themselves in Corlette with their franchise territory covering a wide area: Port Stephens, Newcastle and the Hunter region. Already a more than a few lucky cats in Wallsend, Merewether, Corlette and Newcastle CBD are safe and happy being outdoors in their new outdoor cat enclosures.

Graham, Vivien and Cosmo have since added to their family with a Bengal kitten named, appropriately, Max.

Catmax Cairns

There are plenty of smiles on the faces of cats and cat owners in Cairns since Sue Davies of Catmax Cairns began installing Catmax Clearnet Enclosures in the area.

As one cat owner in Cairns said: “Katie & Coco adore their new Catmax enclosure and they are out there from dawn to dusk. I love sitting out there with them and now have peace of mind that both my cats and the wildlife are safe.”

When asked why she decided to get a Catmax Franchise, Sue told us: “It is an opportunity to build a great, business in my home town, Cairns, Far North Queensland, working with people for the welfare of both the cats and the native wildlife. Local Government is becoming more and more concerned with wandering cats and eventually will require cats to be confined in the same manner as dogs are.”

Sue also installed a free cat enclosure for the RSPCA in Cairns, giving additional housing for the thousands of homeless cats that are brought into the shelter each year.

With more than 30 net enclosures now built in Cairns, Sue is planning to expand her business and may soon even be servicing Townsville.
