“2013 was a fantastic year for us,” say Angela and Clive Coldwell of Dream Doors in Poole and Christchurch.
“At our annual conference we were awarded the top award for year-on-year growth, runner up for overall sales for 2013 but most importantly Checkatrade gave us their award for Dream Doors Franchisee of the Year. This prestigious award reflects what many of our customers have independently said and scored us on the Checkatrade feedback forms.”
“This was a huge achievement for us,” adds Clive, “and one that we didn’t expect, particularly since we have only just completed our third year of trading.
“We commenced trading as Dream Doors Poole in January 2011, opening our first showroom in Broadstone in March. Despite this being at the height of the recession, we built on quality products and services, to offer customers a real alternative to the normal kitchen replacement.
“As a franchise business we cover the whole of the BH postcode district and soon realised that in order to fully support our customer base we needed to expand. After careful consideration, we decided Christchurch would be an ideal location for us, so in October 2013 we became the first Dream Doors franchise to open a second showroom. We have carefully designed the showroom to optimise the space and incorporate a wide selection of our products to show our customers how we can transform their kitchen.”
“Since opening in Christchurch, the business has continued to go from strength-to-strength,” says Angela. “Already we are building a strong customer base reflected in our rapidly expanding Checkatrade results.
“Looking forward, we are excited at the prospects of making the Christchurch branch as successful as the Broadstone branch, and providing our new customer base a real alternative.
