Family makes over £1m in annual sales with Dream Doors showroom

16 January 2019

This franchisee family has worked together to generate over £1million in annual sales from their Dream Doors showroom in Stoke-on-Trent.

Dad Allan James works with his son Glyn, who is his showroom manager, and his other son Martin, who is a fitter. Allan also employs his nephew Kelvin Fradley as his sales director.

Former engineer Allan joined the UK’s #1 kitchen makeover company after his previous job started requiring him to work 16-hour days and lay-off colleagues.

Allan, 63, said: “After I met with the Dream Doors team, I decided that this was the business for me. The thing I liked most was that it wasn’t just me saying: ‘I want to be a part of Dream Doors.’ There was quite a lot of them saying to me: ‘Well, yes, you’ve got the money to invest but are you actually right for us?’ That was what really impressed me – they didn’t just want to grab my cash, they wanted to know that I could actually do it.”

And with the support of his close family Allan is certainly doing well, having generated over £1million in sales in 2018.

Allan added: “Running a successful business is great but getting to work with family is the cherry on top.”

Dream Doors is looking for more talented franchisees like the James family who are ready to generate huge profits by representing an industry-leading brand.

Come and meet the Dream Doors recruitment team at The British and International Franchise Exhibition on February 1stand 2ndat Olympia London. The recruitment team will also be at The National Franchise Exhibition on February 15thand 16that the NEC in Birmingham.
