Husband and Wife Join Dream Doors to Enhance their Business

WHEN Mark and Janet Warr started to experience increased competition for their kitchen business, they knew it was time for a major shake-up.

They wanted to see increased trade, but they also wanted to benefit from the backing of a well-respected national brand with award-winning marketing services.  Mark and Janet were already familiar with the kitchen trade, so they approached Dream Doors to seek the opportunity and method they needed to grow their business.

Mark said:

"We already had a kitchen studio in Harrogate but market conditions in the area had started to become challenging for us and our suppliers.  We really felt there must be a better option out there for us.

I’d seen Dream Doors about 18 months earlier in the trade press and they seemed to have a real aptitude for understanding what’s going on in the industry.  They seemed to have a better business model in terms of offering national branding."

Mark said Dream Doors offered the kind of market reach and support he was looking for and added:

"With Dream Doors you’ve got national support and there is a more marketing driven approach.  Working on your own, you can spend a lot of time doing quotes and getting no business from it.  But with Dream Doors we felt it was quite a unique proposition.  It is more marketing driven - that’s what appealed."

Janet said:

"It’s become more and more apparent during training how much support there was on every aspect of the job. You don’t feel like you’re on your own. This is all quite new for me, but also very exciting."

Dream Doors | Mark and Janet Warr

Mark and Janet recently had a ribbon cutting ceremony at their Dream Doors showroom in Harrogate and even took an order on the big day.

Mark said:

"We’ve been very busy, which has been lovely.  We’ve met a lot of new customers and we even took an order during the opening.  It’s been a great start."

Janet added:

“It’s all been go, go, go.  We’ve had lots of enquiries coming in via the Dream Doors website and as passing trade."

Dream Doors is looking for more talented franchisees like Mark and Janet to join its ever-growing franchise network.

But the company is at pains to point out that kitchen industry experience isn’t required.  In fact, a candidate’s work or educational background is not important – what matters is their ability to learn and follow the tried and tested business model that generates huge profits.

There are just 19 new franchise territories available nationwide, particularly in the North East, North West, Yorkshire and Scotland.

Everything about the franchise works as it is written in the manual and, in your early days, this is important while you learn the business.Paul Reeder

If you want to work for yourself and have more flexibility, I would recommend a Dream Doors franchise. Also it’s good to know that you can run your own business, but still have the back up of a national company.Matt Jones

The training and support has been fantastic and has really reinforced the fact that we made the right decision. The initial training was really helpful and there have been plenty of visits from the Franchise Support Manager to keep us on the right path.Helen Mahon
