THE DREAM DOORS CONCEPT
The Dream Doors Concept is based on improvement not replacement. Swapping existing kitchen doors, drawers, appliances, sinks or worktops provides totally flexible opportunities for your customers to achieve that new-look kitchen without the expense and upheaval of a full kitchen refit.
New appliances, sinks, worktops or cabinets can be incorporated into the overall design as well as upgrading the doors and drawers with made-to-measure replacements. The dramatic yet economical effects achieved by Dream Doors franchisees throughout the country has proven to be a winning formula. Dream Doors' nationwide success has produced record sales and dramatic growth - doubling its network sales in the last three years - by serving thousands of satisfied customers throughout the country.
There are more than 70 showrooms nationwide, giving us a solid base and great brand name, but with plenty of space for more outlets and further UK franchise opportunities.
