THE DOORS TO SUCCESS
Dream Doors are the UK's number 1 franchised kitchen facelift company
After opening their showroom in Nottingham's West Bridgford area, the Conduits have been pleasantly surprised by the acceleration of their business and sold £513,000 of kitchen facelifts in 2007 - their first year of trading.
'Everything we have had from Dream Doors has lived up to or exceeded our expectations. The support is fantastic with great training and invaluable help in sourcing and designing our showroom.
Everything about the franchise works as it is written in the manual and, in your early days, this is important while you learn the business. We already have plans to develop, taking on our sons and additional showrooms within our territory.' Trevor & Anne Conduit - Dream Doors Nottingham
The franchise success speaks for itself...
Andy & Shelley Stewart - Dream Doors Dorset
The Stewarts won second prize in the 'Franchisee of the Year' awards at the annual Dream Doors conference by achieving £565,000 almost a 50% rise on their previous yearly turnover. Working from home initially, Andy & Shelley opened their showroom in November 2005. 'We found ourselves moving in a different direction. It was a lot busier than we thought and we were picking up more orders. Our figures show that having a showroom does make a difference and that all our hard work has certainly paid off! Dream Doors have been there every step of the way - time has never been an issue and it's nice to have a regular input.'
Chris & Paula Hann - Dream Doors Lincoln
When ex-air force man Chris Hann and wife Paula moved their Dream Doors business into a showroom, business boomed. Having quadrupled their turnover they're now looking forward to further growth and development. "Since moving into the showroom, business has really taken off. We're now looking to increase turnover, which means taking on more showroom staff and another sales person. We have quite a relaxed relationship with Dream Doors. They encourage and support us, but are not on our backs all the time, and it is in our best interests to listen to them because they know what works. The training gave us enthusiasm for the business and the building blocks to get it up and running.'
Gary Highton - Dream Doors Preston
Settling into his new role as Dream Doors franchisee for the Preston postcode area, former Sales Director Gary Highton reflects on his success. 'The Dream Doors franchise was the ideal match for my skills, being sales orientated, hands-on and with an element of design. It has good cash flow and tangible results at the end. The training was really comprehensive with a good mix of theory, conceptual, and hands-on, and delivered by an experienced trainer. Likewise, the franchise support has been really excellent. The most enjoyable aspect is working with customers to define their needs, transferring that into a product and finally seeing their faces when it's installed.'
