It’s no secret that the home improvement sector is booming. There’s never been a better time to invest in a kitchen and bathroom franchise like Granite & TREND Transformations.
While many businesses struggled during the pandemic, we experienced one of our busiest years on record. You can read more about that here: Kitchen Franchise Brand Benefits from a surge in Home Improvements.
Of course, it is too soon to say for sure for 2021, but given our trade so far and the number of new franchise partners joining us, it’s shaping up to be another bumper year. The unique way in which we work means that we can offer something markedly different from our competition. Innovative products, such as our Top that Fits on Top, gives our customers a way to transform their kitchens and bathrooms without the need for all the usual mess, disruption and cost that usually comes with it. By helping our customers to make over the most important rooms in the house, rather than start over, we have a major advantage over our competition.
According to Rated People’s Home Improvement Trend Report, on average, around 50% of homeowners decided to have work done on their homes during 2020. Ten key areas of the UK saw a particularly large rise in spending, with an increase of more than 15% in some areas.
You will probably not be surprised to learn that Granite & TREND Transformation already has a lot of these places covered. As one the UK’s leading Kitchen and Bathroom renovation franchises, we already have more than 60 locations around the country where are franchisees are building their own successful business under our renowned brand. In fact, we are confident in saying that our partners are responsible for quite a lot of these home improvements!
However, much of the UK is still very much open to opportunity, with literally millions of customers who are still able to benefit from what you could offer them as our franchise partner.
Don’t forget, resale opportunities also come up all the time. As many franchisees stay with us long-term, some are naturally considering retirement in the near future, or have grown their business to the point where they are considering selling on their established territories.
As a result, we have regular opportunities for new franchisees to invest in a territory that has already been developed. This has a significant advantage over starting a territory afresh, as you will already be able to tap into the customer base and reputation a successful franchisee has built and begin your new enterprise with a substantial head-start.
If you’re looking for a resale opportunity then the best thing to do is to sign up for more information so you can be kept up to date on all the latest developments.
