Dream Doors franchisee goes on growing

At the end of 2015, Adrian and Tammy Kay can look back with satisfaction. They've grown the team - their Dream Doors business in Christchurch now employs five people. They've grown sales - their business will top $1.5 million this year. And they've continued to build turnover by a solid 10-15 percent year-on-year.

Along the way, the couple set a new record sales month for Dream Doors in Australasia and were named Dream Doors' Franchisees of the Year for the second time. 'It's been a very busy year,' Adrian laughs.

Dream Doors supplies and fits replacement doors, surfaces and fittings to restore a home's looks and value for a fraction of the cost and wastage of building new units. Franchisees offer a fast, efficient service with a huge range of finishes and fittings. The company was brought here from the UK in 2007 by co-founder Derek Lilly and has found a ready market among cost-conscious Kiwis.

no experience? no problem Adrian and Tammy cheerfully admit they knew nothing about the kitchen business before they bought the franchise - he was earning a six-figure salary as a corporate manager in the IT sector. But when they started looking for a business they saw the potential in Dream Doors, and realised that their sales and management experience was readily transferrable to a new industry.

'As a Dream Doors franchisee, you don't need to be kitchen experts already - the training and the systems that are in place help you to learn the business fast,' Adrian says. 'But you do need to be good at relationship building. You have to be able to listen to customers, share their vision and turn it into something tangible that adds beauty and value to their home - and all within budget. If you can do that, you can build an awesome business.' And while the Christchurch rebuild might have passed its peak, Dream Doors is going on growing. 'We never chased that business, preferring to focus on individual home owners and rental owners,' Adrian says. 'That's paid off - a lot of kitchen companies are quieter now, but not us. We get a lot of referrals from people who love the fact that we can deliver a brand new look for a fraction of the cost of replacement.' Dream Doors is now expanding into Australia, but still has franchise opportunities available in many parts of New Zealand.

'The investment required is just $75,000 for a 10-year term, renewable for a further 10 years at no extra cost,' says Derek. 'A fixed monthly fee means franchisees have unlimited earnings potential. So if you're looking for a business with real value, whether in New Zealand or in Australia, don't wait - give me a call today.'
