Kitchen Franchise UK Dream Doors
Up 40% last year: why consumer demand for the UK's largest kitchen facelift franchise keeps on growing.
What are you looking for in a franchise?
You can have all of this running your own Dream Doors franchise - and you don't need any kitchen industry experience or practical skills.
So, who are Dream Doors?
With 40+ showrooms across the country, Dream Doors is the UK's largest and most successful kitchen facelift retailer.
Average annual sales from a franchised showroom is £400,000. With your commitment and determination, and our proven business model, you can achieve more than £600,000 in yearly turnover.
There are many reasons why the Dream Doors management franchise is built for your success. Importantly, our brand is built on ethical trading, integrity and award-winning support. We are:
Record sales and growth - Despite the downturn!
Last year, the Dream Doors network achieved a 40% increase in sales, with some stellar monthly turnovers from franchisees throughout the UK, including:
Dream Doors continues to grow in 2013, with consecutive record months. In February, the network broke through the £1.5 million pound mark for the first time. And one Dream Doors franchise owner has sold £100,000 every month this year.
But it's not just established franchise owners that post record months: Clive and Angela of Dream Doors Poole sold £175,000 in their first five months and Karen and Ian from Cardiff sold £120,000 in their first three months from a concession in a garden centre. While Gary & Hayley from Dream Doors Woking & Guildford sold £563,000 in their first year.
Why is there so much consumer demand for Dream Doors?
A kitchen facelift is popular with customers for three key reasons:
And with 80% of its customers in their 60s or older, Dream Doors has a core customer base that is growing, that is less affected by economic uncertainty and has disposable income to spend.
No kitchen experience needed. Why? Because, you'll never have to fit a kitchen!
Dream Doors helps you find the perfect kitchen installation team, typically working 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 six 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. We had a steep learning curve in the first year, but it was an exciting challenge. And it was definitely the right career move; I’d never felt so excited, enthusiastic or inspired by work before!"
Last year Helen & Philip had their best year ever, increasing sales by more than £100,000.
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 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.
Ex-police officer, Kevin Clarke, of Dream Doors Teeside says: "Dream Doors provides plenty of training and support which is very helpful especially if, like myself, you don’t come from a sales or kitchen background."
Kevin's wife, Katrina, also an ex-police officer and now working full-time in the business agrees: "Dream Doors has delivered on every promise. I've witnessed the downside of some disreputable business opportunities, and can see what incredible support and training Dream Doors provides."
Dream Doors Showroom and Brand Credibility Will Increase Your Sales
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!
In their first six months working from home, Mike & Elaine Hurley sold £60,000. In their first six months operating out of their showroom in Oxfordshire, they sold £480,000! Last year the Hurleys achieved record sales of more than £800,000!
With staggered management services fees, Dream Doors will increase your returns
Dream Doors only gets paid when franchise owners get paid, through management services fees based on turnover. These fees are reduced once annual targets are met, so that the more you earn, the less you pay.
What happens next?
Are you serious about running your own retail business?
Do you want to be part of the biggest name in kitchen makeovers, and benefit from award-winning training and support?
Do you want to earn a six-figure income (top franchise owners have achieved that by their third year)?
If you are motivated, resilient, comfortable in a managerial role – have liquid capital of at least £30,000 to kick start your new business, and could raise a minimum of £75,000 with funding – our team would love to hear from you today.
