Why is there so much demand for Dream Doors?
A kitchen facelift is popular with customers for three key reasons:
- It saves money – typically half the price of an average kitchen
- It saves time – it can be fitted in just a day or two
- It saves upheaval – which means much less mess in the home
And with 80% of jobs bought by people in their 60s or older, Dream Doors has a core customer base that is growing, that is less affected by any economic uncertainty and has disposable income to spend.
Remember, this is NOT a hands-on business
At Dream Doors, we help you find the perfect kitchen installation team who, typically, will work for you on a sub-contracted basis. That means you can focus on what you do best – meeting customers and running your business.
Helen Mahon, who owns the Norfolk franchise with husband, Philip, has just signed up for a third term of their franchise. Says Helen: “I'd never done anything like this before. Running a business, selling and working in the kitchen industry were all very new to me. Yes it was a steep learning curve, but it was also an exciting challenge. And it was definitely the right career move; I’d never felt so excited, enthusiastic or inspired by work before!”
Helen & Philip sell more than £800,000 a year from their Norwich-based showroom.
Training, support and continuing development
Our award winning training* is vital to your success as a Dream Doors franchisee. You'll receive a 13-week induction programme, covering all aspects of running a successful kitchen business, including:
You'll also have regular – and ongoing – visits from one of our five in-territory support managers, all experienced in kitchens, sales, training and business coaching.
Lak Deol, of Dream Doors Reading & Wokingham, said: "It was the best training I've ever been on. The Business Development Managers couldn't be more helpful. Everything has gone at the timescale presented to us; it's been such a positive start!”
Your local showroom matched with big-brand credibility
Working from home to begin with (just while you learn the ropes), you'll be managing your own Dream Doors showroom within six months. And, since our success is directly related to yours, everything we do is geared up to getting you selling and making money as quickly as possible!
Why the more you sell, the less you pay
Dream Doors only gets paid when you make a sale, through management services fees based on franchisees' turnover. These fees are reduced once annual targets are met, so that the more you sell, the less you pay.
“ Since joining Dream Doors I've never looked back. I'm in charge and, at last, I'm able to balance my work and my life! I'd recommend a franchise to anyone else who is in the same position that I was.”
Craig Allen - Dream Doors Wealden.

If you are motivated, resilient and comfortable in a managerial role – and you have liquid capital of at least £30,000 to kick start your new business – our team would love to hear from you today.
