Ex-banker Restores Balance with Dream Doors Franchise

After working in the banking sector since the early 80s, Jerry Innesbeer was looking for a worthwhile investment for his settlement cheque.  He chose a Dream Doors kitchen showroom franchise for the opportunity to earn great money while building a business he could call his own.

Dream Doors | Jerry InnesbeerJerry said:

"When I found out I was losing my job, I put a corkboard up in my kitchen.  Every time I had an idea of something I really wanted to do, I would put a note on the board.  I started looking at it as: 'I have an opportunity here to do whatever I want'.  I was going through the board one day and talking to a friend who was also being made redundant and had taken on a franchise.  I thought: 'I could do that too'."

Jerry attended a franchise exhibition and spoke to Dream Doors’ Director of Franchise Recruitment, Alex Waite, about opportunities with the company.  Jerry said that when he heard about the Dream Doors model he felt he could 'buy into it' and saw that the market was buying into it too.

So what advice would he offer to anyone currently facing redundancy or considering a career change?

"I think the biggest thing for me was to keep reminding myself that it’s not a worrying time.  It’s not: 'Oh god, I’m losing my job' - it’s an opportunity.  Someone’s giving you a big cheque – what do you do with it?  For me I wanted to do something more interesting – I’d served my time in banking and didn’t want to go back into that. 

With Dream Doors, I liked what they had to say, I liked the concept.  There was clearly a great level of support behind you.  I was not really ready to jump out and do something completely on my own.  This was a good way of running my own business and having the support network at the same time."

Meet the Dream Doors recruitment team at The British and International Franchise Exhibition on February 1st and 2nd at Olympia London.

The recruitment team will also be at The National Franchise Exhibition on February 15th and 16th at the NEC in Birmingham.

There are just 19 new franchise territories available nationwide, particularly in the North East, North West, Yorkshire and Scotland.
