Festive franchise is the complete package
Drive, ambition, creativity and organisation are all traits The Christmas Decorators seek out in a prospective franchise owner. The Franchise Magazine investigates how this utterly unique franchise is helping the right franchise owners earn impressive profits, making a growing list of customers happy.
For many, Christmas only really begins when Christmas is Coming sounds out from the television screen and digitally enhanced Coca Cola lorries roll through the UK. For The Christmas Decorators franchise owners, however, the festive season never stops. Each bespoke display that franchise owners design, supply and install for a traditionally loyal client-base must be thoroughly thought out and processed way before most people have even thought about what to buy their loved ones for Christmas.
Currently the business has 20 territories taken by franchise owners, who are enjoying the freedom and independence of being their own bosses, while maintaining the support and operational excellence of a truly proven business model run by experienced professionals. A significant source of revenue for The Christmas Decorators franchise owners is big businesses and public-facing corporations – for example Hilton Hotels, large national restaurant chains and many large shopping centres are regular customers for The Christmas Decorators.
In addition to big businesses and SME’s, individual home owners are prime customers too – the business boasts a whole host of celebrity clients including the Prince of Qatar and football legend, Steven Gerrard. In high streets and houses across Britain, stunning decorations that are both tasteful and meticulously laid-out will have been planned, commissioned and created by a branch of the growing The Christmas Decorators franchise many months in advance. Franchise owners in this very specific sector offer corporate and domestic festive displays for the Christmas period to really ensure it is a special time of year for every one of their customers.
This unique business model projects profit for franchise owners from year one and growing over a three-year period. Director Ged Comerford explains: “Most commercial business is organised and signed off between March and June, occasionally agreements are reached a year or two in advance.” The planning and organisation of a bespoke display for a large commercial client takes time and provides sufficient work for 12 months as a The Christmas Decorators business owner.”
In selecting an ideal Christmas Decorators franchise owner, the business looks for people who will willingly fit into the ethos of a friendly and supportive network, whereby promotion is undertaken at a national and region level. Enthusiasm is a word synonymous with The Christmas Decorators franchise owners and the truly successful members of the network enter into each job with customer focus at the forefront of their priorities.
A keen eye for detail and artistic flair are also desirable traits in a The Christmas Decorators investor, as clever design is an integral part of the business. Finally, the business prides itself on its honesty and transparency. It is a highly profitable and genuinely enjoyable business for someone who is prepared to work hard in this totally unique sector.
If you are looking for a sparklingly professional franchise to light up your career, then you really should consider The Christmas Decorators.
