How many Lenard’s stores do you own and/or operate?
Two stores – Lenard’s Aitkenvale & Willows
Are you the sole owner or are there co-owners?
I am co-owners with Mikkayla McLeod.
Please tell us a little about yourself, your background, and how (and when) you came to become a Lenard’s franchisee?
We both started working at Lenard’s as teenagers at the Willows store. When we were in our early twenties, there was an opportunity to own a Lenard’s store of our own and we jumped at it. Over the past few years, we have operated a number of locations and we now own and operate two well-established stores.
What do you love most about being a Lenard’s store owner?
Lenard’s is a strong and popular brand and I enjoy being a part of that. Our products are unique and timeless. I enjoy working in a team environment and I also enjoy the flexibility of owning my own business.
What aspects do you find most challenging?
Our biggest challenge at the moment is keeping up with supply issues. I’m sure many businesses are dealing with the same issues. It really helps being part of the Lenard’s brand as our National Support Office is always right on to any problems that may arise, which allows us to focus on running our business.
What do you love most about your local area and community? Have you always lived in the area?
We have always lived in Townsville and love to call it home. We really love seeing familiar faces at our counter. We have been serving some of our regular customers for over a decade. We also have a wonderful small business community here in Townsville.

We stock a very wide range of Lenard’s products at both locations. We also supply local, independent supermarkets with our most popular products.
