Australia’s first hobby store franchise is set to open early August as the fourth outlet in the Exclusive Collectables retail system.

Franchisee Alfred Battiato who will run the flagship Sydney Top Ryde City store as an owner/operator, said “Exclusive Collectables success lies in its huge product range, availability and most importantly overall customer service. Going that extra mile for customers is what I have done all of my working career and what better way now to express this than in my own business.”

Excusive Collectables started out in a back room in 1996 when Frank Nohra opened the business as a sideline to his Homebush service station. The franchise system has been set up with the support of DC Strategy, specialist franchise consultants and legal representatives.
