In May, a record four Dream Doors franchisees topped £100,000 in monthly sales. Six-figures had been reached in a single month before but, until this year, only three franchisees had ever managed it – and never at the same time.
Dream Doors Chilterns became the fourth franchise to join the six-figure club with sales of £112,148, while Dream Doors Oxford managed it for the seventh time with a monthly turnover of £155,659.
They were joined by Dream Doors Poole’s owners, Clive Coldwell and Angela Lowe, who sold another £106,603 and, in doing so, became the first franchisees to have back-to-back £100k months – a feat Angela admits wouldn’t have been possible on their own.
“Achieving the second highest annual turnover last year was amazing. But we’re breaking records this time round. Sales like that can only be achieved if you have the right support network around you, whether that is staff or suppliers, the franchisor or your family.”
Naturally, Dream Doors Southampton’s owner, Sean Hebdon, was elated after doubling his average monthly sales:
“We’re over the moon. This business just gets better and better. Fortunately we have all the facilities and established procedures in place to cope with such a surge of business. I’ve even been able to take some time off to spend with my family.”
