Dream Doors Awards 

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:

  • Salisbury - £86,779 in January
  • Stoke - £74,709 in February
  • Poole - £100,951 in March
  • Southampton - £78,855 in April
  • Lincoln - £90,665 in May
  • Chilterns - £88,889 in June
  • Walsall - £79,264 in July
  • Woking - £79,635 in August
  • Wealden - £83,773 in September
  • Worcester - £87,513 in October
  • Oxford - £137,051 in November
  • Croydon - £92,416 in December

Dream Doors continues to grow in 2014, with new showrooms opening in Maidstone in January, Warwick in February and Swindon in March.

Sales for established franchise owners grew by an average of 19% last year. But some showrooms did even better than that.

Dream Doors
Clive and Angela of Dream Doors Poole (pictured here) sold £806,207 in 2013 – up 85% on the previous year. While Dream Doors Stoke grew by 61% in their sixth year of trading.

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
    1.  It saves money – typically half the price of an average kitchen
    2.  It saves time – it can be fitted in just a day or two
    3.  It saves upheaval – which means much less mess in the home

And with 80% of 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, 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 Franchisees

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.
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!”

In the last two years Helen & Philip increased their sales by £200,000.


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 ongoing in-territory support, you'll also be given business coaching in:

  • Sales*
  • Finance
  • Marketing
  • Customer care
  • Human resources
  • Time management
  • Best business practice
  • Computer Aided Design
  • Appliance and supplier training

* 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 witnessed the downside of some disreputable business opportunities during my career, 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 £1,000,000!

Dream Doors Showrooms 

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.

What happens next?

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.
