Synopsis

Chris Rocker, owner of the Just Shutters franchise, describes why he decided to franchise his business, the benefits to owning a Just Shutters franchise, why plantation shutters is a profitable market and what makes an ideal Just Shutters franchisee.

As he already had a strong system, great products and an excellent way of doing things, Chris knew that his Just Shutters business was right franchising. He has also identified that by franchising it he was also able to bring likeminded people into the business. In June 2006, Chris established the Just Shutters franchise.

Chris talks about why plantation shutters is the fastest growing niche in the window coverings market, and why being specialists in that sector is proving very profitable for everyone involved.

Ian Beasleigh, Just Shutters franchisee in Reading and Thames Valley, tells us that because Just Shutters is a low cost franchise option, the risks are also much lower. He was comfortable from day one that he would get a return for his money in the first 12 months of operating.

The support offered to franchisees is described in the video as being very comprehensive and addresses all core skills needed to run the franchise. Extra support is also available if needed.

Just Shutters are looking for franchisees who are good at DIY and more importantly a people’s person. You need to be warm, friendly, approachable and trustworthy.
