Earn £150,000+ a year with this multi-award winning and recession-proof franchise

**16 Dream Doors franchisees sold £1million or more in 2023**

Dream Doors is the UK's largest kitchen makeover brand, with almost 100 showrooms throughout the country. 

Customers come to Dream Doors when they want to refresh their kitchen, but don't want the stress and mess that comes with a full re-fit. They also appreciate the huge cost savings, especially as Dream Doors doesn't compromise on quality of components or service.

A Dream Doors franchise can give you the income to enjoy a great lifestyle, and it's a business model that is incredibly resilient - through financial downturns, pandemics and over two decades of successful trading.

You don’t need any previous experience to run a Dream Doors franchise, but you will need a strong work ethic and willingness to learn. And if you have that, you’ll quickly start earning a SIX FIGURE INCOME with this multi award-winning, FULL BFA member franchise.

The home improvement sector is thriving, and with the Dream Doors unique business model your earnings are futureproofed too. Annual net profits of £150,000+ are being achieved right now, so you can rest assured that, if you work hard, you’ll earn a substantial income for years to come.

Your role as a franchisee

The Dream Doors franchise is a white-collar, sales and management business and, as such, you won’t ever be on the tools.  You therefore DON'T NEED any kitchen experience or practical skills, we’ll train you in kitchen products, their terminology and our methodology – all you need is the drive and determination to succeed.

We will help you find the perfect kitchen installation team who typically work on a sub-contracted basis. This means you can focus on meeting your customers and making more sales.

Many of our franchises are husband and wife teams or family businesses, whereas others are owned by talented individuals. Whichever way you choose to set up your operation, we’ll be there to help you every step of the way. As the business owner, you’ll:

  • Visit customers’ homes
  • Design kitchen makeovers
  • Project manage installs
  • Lead your own team
  • Be in control of your diary
  • Maximise local marketing
  • Leverage brand awareness
  • Deliver outstanding service

Your future is safe with Dream Doors

Average annual sales from a franchised showroom are now £750,000+. And that can deliver you a six-figure income. Follow our proven business model, though, and you’ll achieve MORE THAN £1MILLION in yearly turnover, enjoying much higher earnings as a result of that growth.

With around 80% of jobs bought by people aged 60+, Dream Doors has a growing core customer base that has the most disposable income, but is less affected by economic uncertainty or job cuts.

Brand turnover has trebled in the last five years with like-for-like sales increasing every year. And despite the pandemic and cost-of-living crisis, the network have recorded some stellar individual monthly performances.

Franchisee Launches During Lockdown and Turns Over £200k

Launching a Dream Doors kitchen showroom weeks before a national lockdown has not stopped Neil O’Boyle achieving a high turnover. After completing his initial training, the owner of Dream Doors Gateshead and Sunderland enjoyed only two weeks of normal trading before Covid-19 movement restrictions were imposed. Rather than wait for lockdown to end, Neil finished fitting out his showroom, hired full-time staff and booked socially-distanced customer appointments. Keeping his appointments diary full has allowed Neil to turn over more than £200,000 in the last three months as lockdown measures have begun to ease.
