Join a £1billion+ and growing industry
Established in 1995, Marla Custom Blinds supplies and fits the widest range of bespoke blinds, awnings and shutters to residential, commercial and contract markets.
Backed by our knowledge of the market, the quality of our products and the superior customer service we offer, Marla is the preferred choice when it comes to meeting, and exceeding, customer’s expectations.
Blinds are a very in-demand purchase for homes and businesses throughout the UK. If you look at houses, flats, shops and offices in your area, you’ll quickly realise that bathrooms and kitchens aren’t the only rooms that benefit from the addition of blinds and other window coverings.
Due to recent growth in the business, we are looking to further expand Marla Custom Blind franchises across the UK and are looking for likeminded individuals to join our established and growing network. Not only is Marla looking for high calibre individuals in England and Wales, we are keen to talk to well-qualified applicants to spearhead Marla’s expansion in Scotland and Northern Ireland via the appointment of a master franchisee for each region.
The role of a Marla Custom Blinds franchise
Your initial role as a Marla franchisee will be to organize appointments with potential customers to discuss their needs and provide them with bespoke blind solutions. You will also be responsible for carrying out site surveys and undertaking the installation work.
As your business grows, you will become less hands-on and instead hire qualified fitters to do the surveying and fitting for you whilst you concentrate on developing your business to the next level.
