A retired police detective and a dental hygienist found the ‘roadmap’ to business success with the UK’s #1 kitchen makeover company. Jon Brown launched Dream Doors West Nottingham with his wife Hilary after he retired from his role with Leicestershire Police. Jon said:

I’m very lucky to have achieved everything I wanted to achieve in the service and I was able to retire after serving for 30 years. But the simple fact was that at 48 years old I was too young not to do something else. I had always done a lot of building renovation work in the past and I knew when I was retiring that was what I was going to do in my next role. I wanted to run a business where the offering was unique, and I kept coming back to this core idea of kitchen refurbishment work.

Jon added:

Hilary and I spent a lot of time looking at different franchises but we chose Dream Doors for the reason that you don’t buy into a business’s immediate success; you buy a roadmap and the tools you need to get you there. I felt Dream Doors offered the best roadmap and that was very appealing. Hilary and I wanted to do something for ourselves and we wanted to build a business that was financially successful. We’re not just selling kitchens; we’re solving kitchen problems.

Hilary, who was a dental hygienist for 30 years before joining Dream Doors, said:

For me joining Dream Doors helped us to get the home/work balance right. We’ve been following the business model religiously and we’ve really reaped the rewards of that.
