Kitchen Franchise UK Dream Doors
Earn a six figure income by year two with this
What are you looking for in a franchise?
You can have all of this running your own Dream Doors franchise.
With 50+ showrooms across the country, Dream Doors is the UK's largest and most successful kitchen facelift retailer.
Record sales and growth. Through the downturn and beyond!
Last year, the Dream Doors network achieved a 25 percent increase in sales, with some stellar monthly turnovers from franchisees, throughout the UK, including:
Dream Doors continues to grow in 2014, with new showrooms opening in Maidstone in January, Warwick in February and Swindon in March.
Dream Doors Oxford increased their turnover by a more modest 28%. But they went on to top £1million in 2013 – the first franchise owners to clear a million pounds in sales in one year.
Network sales have doubled in the last three years, and trebled since the recession began back in 2008. That upward trend continues in 2014.
Why is there so much consumer demand for Dream Doors?
A kitchen facelift is popular with customers for three key reasons:
Dream Doors helps you find the perfect kitchen installation team, who will typically work for you on a sub-contracted basis. That means you can focus on what you do best – meeting customers and running your business.
Dream Doors Norfolk's Helen and Philip Mahon have come a long way in the last seven years. Says Helen: “We'd never done anything like this before. Running a business, selling and working in the kitchen industry were all very new to us.
Training & Support
Our award winning training programme is vital to your success as a Dream Doors franchise owner. In addition to your induction training and ongoing in-territory support, you'll also be given business coaching in:
* Dream Doors won a government-backed National Training Award for the strength and results of its sales training programme.
In the three months leading up to his showroom opening in Twickenham, franchise owner Stuart Douthwaite sold £30,000 of kitchen facelifts. In the six weeks after opening, he sold £100,000!
With staggered management services fees, Dream Doors will increase your returns
Dream Doors only gets paid when you get paid, through management services fees based on franchisees' turnover. These fees are reduced once annual targets are met, so that the more you earn, the less you pay.
Are you serious about running your own business?
Do you want to be part of the biggest name in its sector, and benefit from award-winning training and support?
Do you want to earn a six-figure income (some franchise owners have achieved that by year two, others by year three)?
If you are motivated, resilient and comfortable in a managerial role – and you have liquid capital of at least £30,000 to kick start your new business – our team would love to hear from you today.
