Our Founder Christine Taylor

Owner and Managing Director of Aussie Pooch Mobile, Christine Taylor owns one of Australia’s most successful franchising businesses and has helped thousands of people build their own franchises to incredible heights and completely turn their lives around.

 

Her story began in 1985 when she was just 16-years-old and started a part time dog washing business in her parent’s back yard.

She was mad about dogs, loved them with a passion, so it was an easy and fun way to make some money.

Through word of mouth her business grew rapidly and she recognised a demand to take the service mobile. It was the start of something big.

This passion, paired with her entrepreneurial spirit led Christine to franchising where her success has been recognised by her many accolades such as Queensland Young Achiever of the Year, Telstra Business Woman of the Year, Franchising Hall of Fame Inductee and most recently Australian Business Womens Hall of Fame Inductee. 

 

Her motto is, and always has been “To be successful first you have to fall in love with what you do.”
