Nicky Morgan MP opens latest Dream Doors showroom in Leicestershire

18 April 2016

Kitchen makeover retailer Dream Doors has opened its latest UK showroom in Leicestershire, in a gala ceremony that saw Nicky Morgan, Member of Parliament for Loughborough cut the ribbon to officially open the new showroom.

The opening came during three days of celebrations that included wine-tasting of Bradgate, an internationally-renowned wine with a local connection, canapes and hundreds of interested customers, all keen to take a closer look at the kitchen makeover services on offer.

“It was a privilege to officially open the new Dream Doors Showroom in Loughborough,” said Nicky Morgan, Member of Parliament for Loughborough. “It was interesting to hear Colm’s plans for the future and to see this wonderful new showroom and I look forward to seeing Colm and his team going from strength to strength.”

The new Dream Doors Leicestershire showroom is located just outside Loughborough on the A6 at 78 Leicester Road, with two hours free local parking opposite. Local resident and franchise owner Colm Doherty believes the combination of local expertise backed by a national brand will prove hugely popular with the residents of Leicestershire.

“I’ve lived in the area for more than 20 years and I’m delighted to say we are already creating employment opportunities,” he said. “Our fitters are all local and I am looking forward to establishing the showroom as a high quality local business, helped with all the support that comes from being part of a national retail chain.”

Colm has spent much of his career in a variety of customer-focused roles, including stints running both BMW and Mercedes-Benz car dealerships. Dream Doors MD, Troy Tappenden believes there will be a major demand for kitchen makeovers in Leicestershire:

“There’s increasing consumer interest in kitchen makeover services. People love their kitchen and want it to look good, but cannot face the disruption, mess and hassle that comes with a full re-fit. Colm’s career has seen him excel in a number of customer-focused roles, and with his experience and local knowledge combined with our proven model, the way is set for him to become one of our leading franchisees.”

As well as its kitchen makeover service, Dream Doors will also design and fit an entire new kitchen, as well as offering a host of white goods and appliances. Every single one of its replacement doors are made-to-measure and of the highest quality, meaning even the oldest and unusual kitchens can be updated. 

“Prior to the showroom opening I have been trading from my home office and business has been great, so I am looking forward to transforming even more kitchens now the showroom is open,” he said.  “I’ve secured an excellent location that comes with free parking opposite, and the showroom doors are now open to all!”
