Georgina & Simon Broadhurst started their Just Shutters franchise after spending the last 20 years working in media advertising sales in central London for large television networks. They both knew that they wanted to start their own business, and since they had recently started a family franchising seemed like the most secure option. After discovering Just Shutters and arranging a meeting at head office, they were immediately taken by the highly professional and passionate team.
The husband and wife team get an enormous sense of satisfaction from making the homes of Surrey look even more beautiful by fitting shutters and are proud to be ambassadors of the brand.

Hayley and Terry Lancaster embarked upon running the Just Shutters Essex franchise because Terry had reached the ‘glass ceiling’ in his career and the couple wanted to build something for their own future.
On track to blast their overall targets, Hayley and Terry have shown huge commitment to their franchise and are reaping the rewards. Here they discuss their motivations and successes as Just Shutters franchisees.
They say: ‘Overall we got a very good feeling about the people, how they looked after their own. We liked the brand and knew if we liked it we can sell it. The training was first class. The office support, the fact the customers call and the phone gets answered, the brochures get sent out takes the pressure off us. Our experience has been overwhelmingly positive. The support we get is overwhelming. Would I recommend a Just Shutters franchise? Yes – that’s it, there’s nothing else to say.’

This husband and wife team have all the makings of the ideal Just Shutters franchisees! Both Tom and Brooke worked for Tom’s family business, which specialised in the installation plantation shutters, in Florida for many years.
Tom is an all-round shutter expert with a passion for both the creative and hands on side of the business, with the drive and skills it takes to be successful in the field. The market is much different in Hertfordshire than it is in Florida, however with Just Shutter’s guidance they have been able to get to grips with their franchise and thrive!

Charlotte and James have a vast amount of unique experience between them. Before embarking on their Just Shutters journey, James had been a retail manager and had run the family business (a nursery) whereas Charlotte owned a successful beauty salon. After having children and selling the salon, the husband and wife team were on the lookout for a business opportunity they could take on together. When they found Just Shutters they knew that it was the perfect opportunity for them! Charlotte said “’I love interiors and home improvements – property renovation is a big passion!! I knew James would be fantastic at the hands-on part as he has a good eye for detail and is a bit of a perfectionist!”
As a keen property developer with an eye for design and passion for helping people achieve their home design dreams; Rob Wardle was a natural Just Shutters Franchisee.
Rob tells us why he chose to be in business for himself. Furthermore, why he chose Just Shutters, along with his experience so far.
Rob says: ‘Just Shutters gives me the opportunity to take the risk away. To have all the back office support, the training and the ongoing support I need to run a successful business. Everyone was so friendly and warm I knew it was an environment I wanted to be part of. The initial launch has been really really good. I put an investment towards it, as did Just Shutters. As part of that we received a big marketing campaign, all the training was taken care of. It was plain sailing. I was really held and really supported the whole way through.’
