Couple Net More Than £130k Take Home Salary in First Year with Dream Doors

Couple Net More Than £130k Take Home Salary in First Year with Dream Doors

David and Kate Howle began Dream Doors’ award-winning training programme last April and moved into their Worcester showroom shortly after.  Now, just one year on, David and Kate have already generated more than £1.03million turnover – netting over £130,000 in personal profit.

Former operations manager David said:

"We’re absolutely ecstatic with the figures – they’re better than we dreamed they would be.  We knew that we were going to do well, but not that well. It’s been a great first year and we think it’s only going to get better.  I thought we were somewhat optimistic when we imagined turning over £750,000 in our first year, so having generated £1million turnover - and £130,000 to take home - is fantastic."

Kate, who worked in business administrative support before joining Dream Doors, said a huge part of their success has been buying into the right franchising brand:

"I think the reason we’ve been this successful is a combination of a number of things – first of all, the brand and the business model of Dream Doors is superb.  But a lot is down to the tenacity of me and David - we make a very good team and we’ve got very good fitters. This is very much a team effort.

We’re looking forward to having our first £100,000 month – that can’t be very far away. I’d like to say that next year we could turn over £1.1 or £1.2million, that would be great. To make the money we have in less than a year has been down to the great support, the website, the advertising and the support from the senior directors."

Dream Doors is looking for more talented franchisees like David and Kate who are ready to generate huge profits by representing an industry-leading brand.  There are just 19 new franchise territories available nationwide, particularly in the North East, North West, Yorkshire and Scotland.

The training and support has been fantastic and has really reinforced the fact that we made the right decision. The initial training was really helpful and there have been plenty of visits from the Franchise Support Manager to keep us on the right path.Helen Mahon

Everything about the franchise works as it is written in the manual and, in your early days, this is important while you learn the business.Paul Reeder
