Summary of Operation:
Showroom-based management franchise. Franchise owners sell made-to-measure kitchen doors, as well as worktops, sinks and appliances. A Dream Doors kitchen facelift saves customers time, money and upheaval when compared to a complete re-fit. A popular concept, Dream Doors was up 40% last year.
Ideal Franchise Owner:
Proactive and self-driven people make the most successful franchise owners. Kitchen experience is NOT necessary as Dream Doors helps you recruit an installation team. You’ll need to draw on management and people skills as you build a profitable retail business.
Our award-winning training covers sales, finance, customer care, management and building regulations. Training and support is ongoing and is available to staff as your business expands.
Head office residential courses, in-territory and in venues regionally based.
Support is ongoing and includes weekly, then monthly visits from the regional support managers. Daily head office support is available as and when required. Franchise owners also benefit from business development, outsourced PR and marketing company support, as well as mentoring from existing franchise owners.
