Director of franchise recruitment, Alex Waite, who collected the trophy on behalf of Dream Doors, said at the time “This is a fantastic award to win. Innovation runs through our organisation, whether that’s in helping our franchisees achieve the best for themselves and their businesses, or through testing new methods to find the most talented candidates to join us. It’s great to be recognised for those efforts, and to celebrate our success as part of the EF100 again this year.”
After presenting Dream Doors with the award, BusinessesForSale.com’s commercial director, Saleem Anwar, said: “We were just so impressed with Dream Doors’ ability and willingness to reinvent and repivot their message to suit a changing market and recruitment map. We couldn’t help but think ‘innovation’ when looking at Dream Doors’ entry to the EF100 2023.
“Alex and the team really demonstrated ongoing ingenuity and connect with the industry in an open manner, adopting new methodologies to demonstrate success which both attracts the next generation of franchisees - and inspires the current.”
Brand Director of Elite Franchise, Scott English, who hosted the ceremony, said: “This year, franchises were evaluated on their ability to proactively tackle current issues. And, as always, we were astonished by the productive and progressive outlook of these businesses.
“Every year the ranking becomes more competitive, and this year has been no exception. From hundreds of entries, the list showcases franchises that have continued to provide exemplary services or products alongside substantial support to their networks of franchisees. Brands like Dream Doors have truly impressed us with their innovative ideas and positive mindsets – they deserve huge congratulations.”

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
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
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
