Surface Doctor: The No 1 US surface restoration franchise is now available in the UK

Surface Doctor, the leading bathroom and kitchen resurfacing franchise in the United States with over 20 years proven business success, is now available as a franchise throughout the UK.

Surface Doctor combines state-of-the-art surface restoration technology and a unique surface bonding agent, to make clients' kitchens and bathrooms look and feel like new, without the mess, time and cost of conventional refitting. Surface Doctor can give almost any surface a new lease of life and can restore or renew anything from baths, basins and shower trays to tiles, kitchen cabinets and work tops.

Says Simon McNeill-Ritchie, CEO: 'Surface Doctor franchisees are tapping into a growing market in which homeowners increasingly want to renovate or update their properties rather than move house.

More and more homeowners are opting for renewing and restoring surfaces as they can save up to 70% against the cost of replacements. So worn out bathtubs, tiles and work surfaces are worth hundreds of thousands of pounds annually to Surface Doctor franchisees.'

As well as homeowners, Surface Doctor carries out work for hotels, developers, tradesmen, schools, and individuals investing in the fast growing 'buy to let' market. In restaurants, pubs and clubs where there is a demand for fast, efficient and clean improvements to avoid prolonged closure and lost business, quickly completed quality resurfacing is an attractive option.

Literally every property in the UK with a kitchen or bathroom, whether residential or commercial, represents a potential customer, which is great news for Surface Doctor franchisees.


Says McNeill-Ritchie: 'We provide an excellent training and support package that covers everything our franchisees will need to get their business off to a successful start, including a pre-launch marketing and PR campaign, designed to get customers ringing from day one.'

Surface Doctor's exceptional training programme includes 2 weeks training on the exclusive Surface Doctor methods at it's HQ in the USA. Franchisees will gain hands-on experience in the workshop under the expert eye of a Surface Doctor head technician.

This is followed up with a further 3 days training at Franchise Training Academy, concentrating on the skills franchisees need build and run a profitable business.

Says McNeill-Ritchie: 'We make sure that our franchisees are ready for business from the outset and our unique 'Getting Started' pack takes them through every step they need to set up their business.'

Surface Doctor ensures franchisees have all the technical know-how that is required as well as the business building skills that will help them create a multi-unit, successful business - fast!


And the support doesn't stop there; a ninety day close-support nurturing programme then follows to ensure your business gets of the best possible start. Franchisees will also have permanent access to a dedicated support team who can advise on every aspect of operations and provide supplementary training.

Surface Doctor franchisees receive a sign-written vehicle fully kitted out with everything they need to get started including Surface Doctor's unique bonding agent. Other materials such as uniforms, stationery, order documentation and promotional literature are also be supplied.

Surface Doctor is an outstanding opportunity for entrepreneurs with drive and enthusiasm to create their own successful and profitable business in the fast growing and largely untapped resurfacing market.
