Mark and his wife Liz opened the Hunter Region’s first Hip Pocket Workwear & Safety store in 2009. Based in Newcastle, they grew the business to become one of the most successful franchisees in the group, eventually opening a second store in Maitland.
With absolute trust in the Hip Pocket Workwear & Safety brand alongside first-hand knowledge of the growing opportunities in workwear and safety, Mark and business partner John Gleeson, purchased the Hip Pocket Workwear & Safety group in 2020. John is also a highly successful multi-store owner and is based in Victoria.
In looking to expand the group, potential franchisees will first be in contact with Mark. Talking to Mark, means you are talking to somebody who has been hands on in the business, understands the journey and knows what it takes to run successful stores.

We are looking for people with the drive and a determination to succeed. People that want a great income and lifestyle but are willing to put in the hard work in the early years. Customer focus is essential and being able to manage a team and a willingness to learn is key.
You need to enjoy variety. This is not a business where you turn up for work and do the same thing day after day. Each day is different, and the scope of opportunity is limited only by your drive and determination.
“I would absolutely recommend Hip Pocket as a group and as a franchise to be involved in. It’s an amazing group, very well run so if you are looking at a franchise don’t go past the Hip Pocket Group”
