Are you entrepreneurial and looking for a new challenge in County Durham? Are you looking to start your own business and feel the support and security provided by an existing much-loved brand could be for you? Then a Just Shutters franchise might be exactly what you are looking for.
Just Shutters have built an outstanding reputation for quality and service, with over 7000 happy customers; we have achieved the highest number of 10/10 reviews of our like-for-like competitors. Having grown organically from our initial business in Dorset, you can now find a Just Shutters franchisee in over 150 towns and cities in the UK. This gives us a wealth of experience both at running and managing our own shutter business AND at looking after franchisees as they build their own.
As a home/van based franchise, you will be working from your own front door, often visiting customers in their own homes. This means whatever part of County Durham you live, whether that be Darlington, Durham, Hartlepool, Stanhope, Bernard Castle – or any other part of the county – we can look at creating your exclusive franchise territory to make the very most of local business opportunities.
Having grown our initial Dorset business into the £1.35million-a-year success it is today, and having helped franchisees build their own successful local businesses, we have the expertise and model to give you the perfect foundations of your own great business.
2016 marks an exciting year for Just Shutters, having established a dedicated franchise team, we are able to offer many more Northern territories to potential franchisees with County Durham among them. We are looking for a hard-working person, keen to build his or her own business as part of our exciting brand.
While the curtain and blind market remains mostly static, shutters have seen fantastic year-on-year growth. As their popularity has grown, more and more people have become aware of their benefits and value.
With great press interest as well as being popular with interior designers, boutiques and hotels, their popularity has translated across to the domestic market and sales have grown over 40% in ten years. Shutters really are fast becoming the window dressing of choice.
Our franchise launch package is second to none and our on-going support ensures that even once you are established you never feel you are on your own!
We give you full training across all areas necessary for you to run a business successfully – from shutter design and installation to sales. You will also have access to our beautifully branded Just Shutters vehicles, tools, uniform and branded sales kit, as well as personalised business cards and literature.

We encourage each franchisee to set their own goals and targets based on their own expectations which we can discuss at a meeting, however as a guide, you could be expected to achieve a turnover of around £290,000 in year one, while this would likely be £590,000 in year three, this is not capped and as an example our Dorset territory turns over well in excess of £1.35 million a year.
We love to help our franchisees expand and grow, in 2015 alone two of our existing franchisees were so successful in their first territory they have already purchased a second!
