Franchisor Profile

Founding the company is 2019, Strantz Wihongi and Nic Purcell brought 30 years of industry experience to the table, rapidly expanding the operation into an industry-leading business in New Zealand surface restoration.

MBA qualified and with years of hands-on experience, Wihongi has built a professional career from business ownership. With a background owning commercial construction and development businesses, he saw a gap in NZ’s surface restoration market that he was determined to fill. 12 months later, in the face of unprecedented demand, he is ready to share Restor’s success and his professional experience with franchisees across the country. 

Before heading Restor, Purcell attained a degree in accounting and worked in high-profile analyst roles in banking and financial institutions. Here he learned the ins and outs of business and capital, knowledge that became the foundation upon which he has since built several successful businesses. 
Their wealth of experience has cemented both Wihongi and Purcell’s reputations as high-achieving business owners, with a successful track record in the corporate world. Restor’s impressive growth in the industry can be attributed to their emphasis on a strong leadership, work ethic and values. 

Highly committed to the success of their franchisees, Restor provides ongoing training and support to ensure franchisees are confident in up-selling services and delivering a complete range of restoration options, enabling them to maximise their earning potential.
