Dream Doors, the UK’s largest kitchen facelift retailer, is reaching out to find new franchisees in Yorkshire and the North East. And that’s because, while the company has more than 70 showrooms nationwide, Wakefield, York and Yarm are the only locations covered in the region.

In a search for suitable partners, Dream Doors MD, Troy Tappenden, Director of Franchising, Bill Owen and Head of Recruitment, Alex Waite are hosting two exclusive Discovery Days. The first is in Leeds on 31st January, the second in Gateshead, Newcastle on Wednesday 1st February.

Interested parties will hear the fascinating story behind Dream Doors, understand how they can maximise their investment and learn more about marketing and customer focus. All in a relaxed and informal environment. What’s more, the company has promised light refreshments too!

There are several advantages to becoming a franchisee with Dream Doors, such as the opportunity to run your own business while working close to home. Working hours are flexible too, and potential turnover for a new franchisee is astounding, with some franchisees selling more than £1million a year.

It’s been said that the golden rule of franchising is to “follow the model” and with Dream Doors that’s certainly the case. What’s more, the business model has been fine-tuned over 18 years, starting out with a single showroom in Gosport and maturing into the largest kitchen makeover retailer in the UK.

Dream Doors’ focus on the customer journey has been key to its franchisees’ success. The company provides what’s known as a “kitchen facelift”. This is where customers’ old kitchen cupboard doors, drawers, worktops, sink and taps are replaced with new ones, giving their kitchen a brand-new look but at a fraction of the price of a full refit.

Dream Doors also provides award winning support, an extensive 13-week induction and launch programme and a professional in-house marketing team, all dedicated to its franchisee’s success.

The Discovery Day dates and details, again, are as follows:

  • Tuesday 31st January - 11:00am - 2pm - Hilton, City Centre, Leeds

  • Wednesday 1st February - 10:00am- 1pm - Hilton, Newcastle, Gateshead

Dream Doors will also be making an appearance on stand C20 at the British & International Franchise Exhibition in Olympia, London on the 20th & 21st of January as well as the National Franchise Exhibition, NEC, Birmingham on 17 & 18 February.
