The Beenleigh store was founded by Bill Taylor in the form of a new Budget Eyewear franchise in May of 1999. At the time, Bill had over 34 years experience managing several highly successful OPSM branches, before he saw an opportunity to open his own franchise in a new regional centre in Beenleigh Marketplace.
Caring for his customers and providing the highest standard in eyecare was Bill’s main priority and this is still true today. As a result, the business grew and so too did the need for new staff. Two of Bill’s sons, Daniel and Matt began their time at the store and grew into their management roles via years of guidance from their father.
Now, nearly 20 years since first opening its doors, the store has a new name is 100% family owned and operated. Taylor Eyewear replaced the existing Budget Eyewear name in June 2017 and a new era in the company has begun.
