The Offer:

Koala has no two distributors in any one territory, so you are not competing against another. We have existing customers in this territory waiting on a distributor to deliver Koala products into their stores now.

Koala's distributors are provided training in their territory, ongoing assistance, support and guidance from the Head Office Team, whilst having autonomy to streamline their business and hours to suit their own lifestyle. Koala nurtures our relationships with distributors as it is in our interest that distributors are successful.


This offer is not a franchise; there are no hidden or additional costs such as joining, management or licencing or contract break out fees.
