Opportunities are endless, where there is a window or door there is a shutter sale opportunity, the domestic market is booming as home owners are realising the long-lasting value of shutters as well as their stunning good looks and charm. The commercial market is also vast with shutters being child safe, wipe clean, hardwearing and coming with a lifetime guarantee.
At an initial meeting you will be able to discuss trading history and financial information in detail along with your personal plans and hopes for the business (each area and franchisee has their own goals and aspirations and we will work with you to ensure they are realistic and match ours as a company), as a guide you could expect to achieve a turnover of around £290,000 in year one and around £590,000 by year three.
This figure is not capped; our Dorset territory for example turns over well in excess of £1.3 million a year. We also encourage expansion; last year we saw two existing franchisees take on new areas after having become so successful in their original territory.
