Dream Doors has set the gold standard for franchise innovation, winning several industry awards across the years and proving its dedication to increasing brand awareness and generating quality leads for its growing network of franchisees.
Dream Doors also won “Best Kitchen Supplier” and “Best Money Saving Product” at the inaugural Home & Living Awards in October 2017, two trophies that highlight the strength of the Dream Doors product as well as its reputation within the industry. The franchise brand was in illustrious company too, as Debenhams and John Lewis were fellow awards winners.
The company has grown exponentially every year, with the number of visits to their website doubling in 2017. Turnover is at an all-time high with new franchisees achieving record monthly sales before they’ve even opened their showroom. Word of their success has spread so that new franchisee applications are flooding in from all corners of the country. And with current franchisees opening second showrooms it looks like the service is as profitable as ever.
There are several advantages to becoming a franchisee with Dream Doors, such as the opportunity to run a local, family owned business with sociable working hours. Importantly, no kitchen industry experience is required. Franchisees’ average annual sales are now £600,000, while some showrooms take orders worth more than £1Million-a-year. And with net profit margins of 15%-20%, becoming a Dream Doors franchisee could be the perfect career move for anyone looking to earn a decent six-figure salary.
What’s more, says head of franchise recruitment, Alex Waite, the company hosts regular Discovery Days at its headquarters in Hampshire to give potential investors a taste of how the business operates.
“We’re looking for anyone who’s seriously interested in earning a high income, and who’s excited about partnering with such a long-established brand as Dream Doors. Visits to our offices allow potential new franchisees to get a behind-the-scenes look at how we can take people with no experience in kitchens or sales, and help them build million-pound businesses.”
There are a handful of existing Dream Doors franchises on the market, with mature franchisees looking to retire or see a return on their investment. Moreover, there are close to 40 territories still available for new franchisees throughout the UK.
Dream Doors prides itself on its elite network of hard working franchisees, each showing the professionalism and determination to ensure their business thrives. As such, every application is taken very seriously, and potential franchisees are closely assessed and interviewed before being assigned their own exclusive territory.
New Dream Doors franchises receive a comprehensive 13-week induction training period, including nine days of intensive training at the company’s head quarters in Gosport, Hampshire. In addition, they are given three day’s supplier training and one day of IOSH Health and Safety training. This course ensures new franchisees gain the knowledge and experience to excel from the very start.
As well as the new and improved training course, franchisees are also assigned a dedicated BDM (business development manager) who helps oversee their operations, teaches them the business model and assists in any way needed.
With award winning marketing strategies and a constant increase in franchisees and local showrooms, it is clear to see how Dream Doors earns its title as the UK’s leading kitchen makeover franchise.
