Sandy and Nick Martin, Dream Doors franchisees in Brigg, joined the business through the National Franchise Exhibition in London.
“I wasn’t aware that replacement kitchen doors were an actual business, I immediately thought how prosperous such a specialised service could be. The strengths were plain to see, I was sold- Hook, line and sinker.”
Sandy and Nick had no prior kitchen experience before showing interest in the brand. Nick had sales experience in the sea food industry and Sandy made bespoke curtains from home. Seeking a change in career the two leapt into the kitchen industry without any knowledge of the subject.
The two very quickly become experts in the field though due to Dream Doors extensive training programme as well as the support from head office. They were also assigned a BDM (Business Development Manager) who oversaw their growth and often still lends a hand to this day.
Sandy later praised the National Franchise Exhibition due to how easy it was to converse with each business and how the quality of organisation and hosting were incredibly professional.
“The National Franchise Exhibition was eye-opening and provided us with much needed information on many different franchise businesses. It was a great learning experience for us both.”
