Former design and technology teacher, Matt Jones, had been looking for a way to change career direction and relocate to Cornwall while still generating a very good income.
He chose to join Dream Doors, the UK’s #1 kitchen makeover company, in Truro as it ticked all of these boxes.
"I wanted to get out of teaching and I wanted to do something that I really wanted to do, rather than just jump ship and do anything. Dream Doors ticked a lot of boxes for me – I still get to use my practical skills and be a bit creative. “It seemed like it would be a good idea for me to do this for a living and it still does.
I liked the concept of franchising just because you get a bit of back-up. If you just jump into something with both feet, completely on your own, then it’s really an ‘all or nothing’ situation. But with Dream Doors there is much more of a safety net around you, with great support from the head office and Business Development Managers."
Matt, who had worked as a teacher for 13 years before changing careers, began trading just under three years ago.
"When I looked into it and saw what Dream Doors was all about - and what the earning possibilities were – it certainly appealed. It was definitely another reason to follow the Dream Doors path. Dream Doors is expanding - really snowballing actually - and to be part of it at the moment is quite exciting. It should be fun to see how it continues to grow."
Dream Doors is looking for more talented franchisees like Matt who are ready to generate huge profits by representing an industry-leading brand.
