Training and Support
Launching a business can be daunting as well as exciting. But with our superior 12-week training programme we’ll provide you with all the information you need before opening up your very own Dream Doors show room.
As part of our new recruitment and support process, all potential Dream Doors franchisees will now undergo the Extended DiSC personal assessment, used by 70% of Fortune 500 companies to improve work productivity, teamwork, and communication, and will also take the Devine Inventory skill assessment, which helps companies find the right candidate.
Using this sensitive data, we are then able to structure the training program to suit you and your mind set.
Our intensive 12-week training programme provides you with knowledge and experience in:
- Training and management skills
- Financial management
We also give you extensive training in business management.
The programme begins with four weeks of pre-induction training and support, that includes:
- Preparing a marketing plan
- Mentoring existing franchisees
- Opening supplier accounts
- Sourcing premises
- Recruiting kitchen fitters
Next, you’ll have two weeks induction training at Dream Doors head offices in the south of England. You will be required to attend all of this training. Accommodation is included.
Once your two weeks training is completed, you will then receive personal, one-on-one support from your regional Business Development Manager (BDM).
Dream Doors then offers you a selection of ongoing courses with our suppliers. This helps you learn more about the vast range of products Dream Doors has to offer.
Through years of experience, we know this training/information will help accelerate your sales within your area. If you feel comfortable and know about the product, then you will be able to sell it.
All of these courses are available 4 – 5 times a year for you and your staff:
- Appliance training
- Sink/tap training from the leading manufacturers
- Kitchen storage solutions from leading manufacturers
- Kitchen door and associated product from leading door manufacturers
All of these courses are conducted at the manufacturers own training facilities – free of charge.
If you'r not confident with selling, don’t worry we have you covered. All franchisees in the network have the opportunity to attend a two-day introduction to sales and one day refresher sales training course. A number of these courses are arranged each year.
As a large, national company we believe in the power of networking; we encourage franchisees to speak with their neighbouring franchises. What’s more, Dream Doors holds an annual franchisee conference, which lets you meet with directors, suppliers and fellow franchisees. Each year we exchange new ideas and share best practice. We work hard together to grow our brand and deliver high quality products and service.
