£1.34 million sold last year!

Top of the tree last year were Clive and Angela of Dream Doors Poole who sold £1,342,000 – their third £1million+ year in succession.

Why is there so much demand for Dream Doors?

A kitchen facelift is incredibly popular with our customers for 3 key reasons:

1. It saves money – typically half the price of an average kitchen
2. It saves time – it can be fitted in just a day or two
3. 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 all the time. This demographic is less affected by any economic uncertainty and has disposable income to spend on our services.

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.

Dream Doors franchisee helen mahon norfolkHelen 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 currently sell more than £800,000 a year from their Norwich-based showroom and show no signs of looking back.

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 broken, so that the more you sell, the less you pay.

Dream Doors franchisee craig allen“Since joining Dream Doors I've never looked back. I'm in charge of my career and, at last, I'm able to balance my work and my life! I'd recommend a franchise to anyone else who wants to build something for the future.”
