A strong background in selling financial services has helped Barry Harrison get to grips with selling kitchens. Dream Doors’ comprehensive training programme helped Barry develop the confidence and skills he needs to set up and run a successful new showroom in West Birmingham.
The former financial adviser, who is originally from Burntwood, said he was drawn to franchising because of the potential to earn good money.
Barry, 49, said:
I’ve never sold a kitchen before, but I’ve sold financial services before and investment products and there’s very little difference between the processes. There’s a lot of jobs and businesses for sale that only offer what I would consider to be a modest income. I looked at buying into a post office, but they wanted two times the annual profits to take it on -that was not viable for me.
Barry said he was looking for a franchise where he would be well supported as he set up and added:
Alex (Waite, Director of Franchise Recruitment for Dream Doors) played a big part in me joining. He played a massive part in building my confidence in taking on this venture and showing me its earning potential.
Dream Doors is looking for more talented franchisees like Barry who are ready to generate huge profits by representing an industry-leading brand.
The team will host two exclusive Discovery Days in March in Newcastle and Manchester. There are just 19 new franchise territories available nationwide, particularly in the North East, North West, Yorkshire and Scotland.
