Why are Dream Doors franchise owners selling so many kitchen facelifts?
Initial Investment Required £23,825+ VAT
- Dream Doors kitchen makeovers are at least half the price.
Sometimes they can even cost as little as a third of the price charged by major retail brands.
- 80% of Dream Doors’ customers are over 60 years of age.
And because they have retired they are not worried about their jobs, redundancies or wage cuts.
- The over 60s have often paid off their mortgage.
As a result, many have more disposable income than other age groups in society.
- Losing interest in the banks.
The only way the recession has affected the over 60s is they are now getting very low interest on their savings in the bank.
And because of all of these reasons, customers are happy to spend some of their savings on improving their homes.
Can you see yourself running a retail franchise with the brand leader in the kitchen facelift sector? As a sales and management franchise, you don't need any previous kitchen industry experience. If you are hard working, determined, resilient and professional – with liquid capital of at least £30,000 – we would love to hear from you today.

Mike says: “We are so far ahead in our business plan that we are already interviewing for more staff. I need time to focus on appointments as we’re getting so many enquiries.” He adds: “We had no experience in kitchens before doing this. Our Franchise Manager is great, and the support we get from Dream Doors far outstrips what is contractually agreed.”

“I have to credit Dream Doors for the training and support they’ve provided. It’s been excellent.” Sales of £97,000 in September 2010
After opening their Peterborough showroom, the Joneses achieved annual sales of £350,000 in their first year! Like most Dream Doors’ franchise owners, they had no kitchen industry experience. But through Dream Doors’ award-winning training programme, they were quickly able to develop the skills they needed to run a successful management franchise. Chris says: “I have to credit Dream Doors for the training and support they’ve provided. It has been excellent. Troy has invested heavily in new finance and sales training courses. He’s also organised regular ‘best practice' days where we get to network and learn from our more established peers.”
