New Dream Doors franchise owner sells £50,000 in first month
Susan de Mey opened her Dream Doors showroom in Truro on the last weekend in June. At the end of July she had sold £50,000 of kitchen makeovers.
Mey admits that there have been some stressful moments but she is delighted with her decision to join the kitchen facelift franchise. “I’m really enjoying myself and absolutely love the selling. Of course, there have been some difficult days. This is a totally new industry to me, and a busy one! But I like a challenge and there’s never been a problem we haven’t been able to solve – or that somebody else hasn't been through before.”
Mey explains why she invested more that £70,000 into this new venture: “I’d seen lots of other businesses and this is definitely the most professional and well-run franchise I’ve never seen. The products are great, the people are easy to get along with and there are some resources in place to help franchisees than any outside observes would know.”
Susan isn’t the only new franchise owner of Dream Doors doing well. Worcester-based couple, Dionne and Mark Battin, have just taken the record for the fastest start in Dream Doors’ 14-year history, opening their showroom just three months after joining. South African ex-pats, Gary and Hayley Ashe sold £567,000 from their showroom near Woking last year – their first year of trading.
Dream Doors has been franchising for over a decade, is a former bfa ‘Brand Builder of the Year’ and six-time winner in the Franchising Marketing Awards. It was also voted one of the top six franchises in the UK this year, making the finals in the bfa’s ‘Franchisor of the Year Awards’.
