Oakleaf Sales Limited
Summary of Operation:
Oakleaf manufactures high quality decorative mouldings, offering a wide range including replica oak beams and antique oak wall panelling. Franchise owners manage the marketing, sales and installation of the company’s unique products within their large and exclusive territories.
Ideal Franchise Owner:
Oakleaf franchise owners should have extensive business experience, and recognise the importance of promoting their business. An interest in interiors is beneficial and, as the role often involves visiting customers in their own homes and introducing the product at local shows, they should enjoy meeting people, both privately and professionally.
Training takes place over two days at the factory, covering all aspects including the product range, system, promotion (including introduction to the mobile showroom/exhibition trailer), and on-the-job training with the company-owned franchise operator.
