Granite & TREND Transformations is a management franchise with a focus on managing people; once the business is built up, you should expect to be able to draw a 6-figure income, but you may be happy to run a smaller business and draw less of an income, the choice is yours.

When you’re deciding whether or not to become a franchisee, you want to know the numbers involved. Granite & TREND Transformations offers various business models with varying levels of growth. The success of your business will be down to you, but you can, potentially, generate revenues of between £400,000 to £600,000 in year 1. By year 3 it is not uncommon to hit the magic £1m annual turnover!

Our Training & Support:

At Granite & TREND Transformations we have a simple and easy to understand week-long induction course. In this week you’ll learn about the office-based aspects of running the franchise, and then it’s straight into the hands-on portion of the training; including sessions with our support and development team, at your own facility.

Our technical team will spend two weeks with you as the showroom is fitted out too and our ongoing support is there as and when you need it.

Who is ideal for Granite & TREND Transformations?

You don't need to have any experience in the home improvement, DIY or kitchen fitting arena, but you will ideally come from a professional background and be confident, organised and experienced in leading and motivating your own team; goal-orientated; an effective project manager; driven; ambitious and good with people.

The Return on Your Investment…

You will only need to have £35,000 in liquid capital to start your business. Our franchise fee is £28,700 + VAT and the funds needed to open your fabrication workshop, showroom and for working capital can be funded by up to 70% by banks/third party lenders and / or Government Loan schemes. (Subject to their usual credit assessment.)

Most other franchise opportunities also do not offer you the ability to expand to other products and service areas as easily as we do. All you need is a little creativity and desire, we'll help with the rest.

Your Exclusive Territory

You will have exclusive rights to sell Granite & TREND Transformations products in your territory which comprises around 200,000 residential houses, across multiple postcodes. You will be able to build a name, and reputation, for quality home improvements with a customer base that cannot go elsewhere for your product. In the event you’d like to expand further, other territories can be reserved for future growth too.

Is the home improvement boom over? Not by a long shot!

TREND Transformation Image

Apart from the inevitable slow down during the first lockdowns, business has been booming for Granite & TREND Transformations franchisees over the last few years. So far in 2022, our franchisees have continued to benefit from their highest ever numbers of customer leads, with more and more of our partners now enjoying sales revenue in excess of £1 million per year.

This is reflected by a general boom right across the market. According to a survey by NatWest and S&P, the number of people saying they were planning major home improvement works over the next year rose from 16% at the end of 2021 to 22% by the end of the first quarter of 2022. Of course, a lot has changed in the economy since then but there are excellent reasons to believe that this boom will continue. In fact, many of these negative changes elsewhere could actually have a positive effect on this market – at least for those who have positioned themselves with the right products and services.
For example, the uncertainty of the housing market and the rise in the cost of mortgages will certainly mean that those planning a move over the next year are much more likely to remain where they are. This means that homeowners will be much more inclined to improve their current home to meet their needs and money they had otherwise saved for a move can be re-invested back into their existing house.

With housing prices starting to plateau after a long period of growth, astute homeowners will also be more eager than ever to protect the value of their homes, as well as do what they can to increase them. With kitchens and bathrooms still playing a huge role in how buyers and estate agents perceive the value of a home, these are very likely to be key areas of investment. According to Property Mark, a new kitchen alone can add between 6-10% to the value of a house, which potentially means tens of thousands of pounds for the average property.

It is well worth remembering too, that those who own homes and intend to spend on home renovation are also those least likely to be affected by the cost of living crisis. A large family home still carries so much value on the market that these homeowners continue to have considerable spending power that will only be fractionally hit. They are also the customers most likely to recognise how improving their home represents a great long-term financial investment.
There’s also the fact that the UK is facing a chronic housing shortage which is only set to be worsened by the slowdown in the rest of the housing market. There will be increased demand for new housing builds over the next decade, with the government still sticking to targets of 300,000+ new homes per year. All of those will require the latest in kitchen and bathroom installations, which of course translates into more work for those in the home improvement industry – especially if they can provide kitchens and bathrooms that are both practical and attractive.

However, despite these reasons for optimism, there is no doubt that things are going to get harder for most business owners over the next year. Even high-end consumers are going to be more reluctant to spend money, unless they can be assured that their investment is going to pay off in terms of quality and longevity. Retailers and installers are certainly going to have to work a lot harder to make themselves stand out.

Fortunately for Granite & TREND Transformations franchisees, this is an area in which we excel! This is not the first time in our 25+ years of trading that our network has had to withstand the ups and downs of the economy and we are proud to say we have come out stronger every time. We’ve learnt to embrace challenge and have used innovation and insight to perfect a business model which can offer customers a huge selection of truly unique products and services. Thanks to our extensive range, our franchisees can help customers with a variety of budgets make their homes more beautiful, by offering everything from complete kitchen and bathroom transformations through to small, but effective, refreshes that can make a huge difference without breaking the bank.

Of course, residential sales are just a part of what you could offer as our partner. Granite & TREND Transformations has also made a fantastic name for itself in the commercial market with a number of large-scale contracts for hoteliers, interior designers, architects and big-name retailers. This works on a local scale too, with many of our franchisees becoming the go-to KBB experts for small to medium businesses in their communities. The potential is huge! Combine all this with Granite & TREND Transformations’ existing reputation as a leading global brand, you have a package that can continue to lead the way in tapping into the home improvement market, no matter what shifts and changes lie ahead.

So, if you’re determined to break into the lucrative and rewarding home renovation market but are also looking for a robust business that can stand head and shoulders above the rest, even during difficult times, this could be exactly the opportunity you’ve been looking for. Contact us today to find out more about a Granite & TREND Transformations franchise resale opportunity and how it could work for you.

We had a great first year and this has been the catalyst for us to expand. Our first 12 months trading turnover was over £400k, we’ve exceeded our projected business plan by 18% and we employ 2 fitters, 2 fabricators and 1 full-time equivalent in our garden centre showroom. This year we will be creating a showroom within our factory site plus we have recently opened a second garden centre showroom in our new Liverpool territory.
Helen and David Thomas, Franchise Owners since August 2014,
Granite & TREND Transformations
Granite & TREND just get it. They bent over backwards to do what they could when they could, to give us everything we needed. They even helped us get the funding for leasing which we needed. Everyone at head office is awesome – they all genuinely want the best for their franchisees. I have nothing but positive feelings towards Danny and his team. I am really glad we went down this route.
