Your Dream franchise
Dream Doors, a kitchen renovation brand founded on providing an impeccable service and top of the range products, is looking to recruit more self-motivated, quality-focused franchisees for Scotland, who want to be part of a niche market supported by an organisation dedicated to your success
Quality brand seeks quality franchisees
'Quality' is the Dream Doors buzzword - quality products, quality franchise opportunity and quality franchisees - which is why this kitchen renovation brand has launched 43 outlets, three in Scotland, and gained British Franchise Association Associate Member status within just four years.
Manufacturing and fitting made-to-measure kitchen doors, units and worktops is a unique concept in the kitchen renovation market, which is mainly dominated by high street stores selling entire kitchens with little choice of colour or design. Dream Doors franchisees nationwide are transforming old, tatty kitchens, at a fraction of the time and cost of fitting a brand new kitchen, with a wide selection of colours and designs.
Strong demand for this service is evident at the company-owned Gosport outlet where the company was first established on Valentine's Day 2000 by business visionaries Derek Lilly and Troy Tappenden. 'Dream Doors began as a local business venture,' recalls Franchise Director Derek Lilly, 'but we quickly came to realise that this was a growth market. We already had a proven and successful business formula so franchising was the next logical step to expansion. Demand for the Dream Doors service has been strong and we've in fact tripled the turnover at the Gosport outlet.'
Troy and Derek have developed a franchise system focused on equipping franchisees with the skills and confidence to provide customer choice, quality products and excellent customer service. Derek explains: 'Company income is derived entirely from the franchisee's sales so there are no monthly management fees, just an initial investment of £10,000 + VAT, which pays for the set-up and launch of the new franchise.'
This includes four days' training, regular visits from a Franchise Manager, 30,000 leaflets, a CD of pre-designed marketing materials, 400 colour brochures, 160 sample doors, computer software, stationery, corporate clothing and valuable monthly newsletters.
'We're looking for self-motivated, go-getters,' Derek outlines. Current franchisees include a Justice of the Peace, kitchen fitters, ex-sales directors, previous business owners, computer experts and even a serving RAF officer. 'You don't need experience in the kitchen industry to be a franchisee, but you do need to be in it for the long term with the ambition to drive the brand forward.'
Such as Duncan Hayworth and David Corcoran from Glasgow who gave up corporate positions to look for a business they could develop themselves, or John and Janice Fergason who left jobs in North Sea drilling and insurance respectively, to join Dream Doors as franchisees.
'With Dream Doors you can run a business that suits your ambitions with the rewards you want where you are in complete control but with the backing and support of an organisation dedicated to your success,' Derek concludes. 'Whatever you are looking for in a franchise Dream Doors has the product, the commitment and vision to help you succeed.'
A number of territories are still available in Scotland so call Derek and Troy today to find out more.
