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.

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.

The Benefits of Franchising

If you’re relatively new to the concept of franchising, you might be very surprised at just how prevalent it is in the UK. Both big name brands and SMEs have been using franchising for decades as a way to expand their businesses and individuals have been flocking to it as a way to start their own business and escape corporate life.

At the last count in 2018, the British Franchise Association survey put the number of franchises operating in the UK at just under 1000, with more than 750,000 people working in industries worth more than £17.2billion. Despite the turbulence of the last few years, that figure is actually expected to rise in 2022 and beyond as franchising has consistently maintained stable growth throughout all the major economic downturns of the last 40 years.

There are lots of reasons why companies might choose to expand through franchising, not least recruiting talented individuals to rapidly expand their brand, but this is a business model where both parties have a great deal to gain. So, why is it so effective and what are the benefits to you as a franchisee?

Greatly reduced risk

While nothing in life is risk-free, joining a franchise is a far safer and more reliable way of starting your own business than setting up from scratch. It is a sad fact that most new business fail within their first 3 years. Industry statistics show this failure rate to be at least 60% and this is likely to be a lot higher during times of economic uncertainty.

In comparison, according to Entrepreneur Europe, the failure rate among new franchises is just 10%. The British Franchising Association also reported that 93% of franchisees were showing profit in 2018, with just 1% of franchises closing their doors due to commercial failure. The figures for 2020 and 2021 show a slight slowdown but far below that of the wider economy, with sectors like home improvement showing a significant bounce back to levels higher than before the pandemic.

Joining a franchise means that you can buy into a business that has already established itself on the market and overcome many of the challenges and dangers that new companies face. They are more robust and resilient by their very nature and much better placed to face up to unexpected events.

Reduced costs

You will also likely find that the initial investment required for joining a franchise is a lot less than you would need if you were going it alone. You’ll also need to spend a great deal less over the medium and long-term on building the brand and its image with customers. While you are still going to have to be just as hard-working and dedicated as on any other project to really see it pay off, your outlay will be lower and you are more likely to see a significant return on your investment within the first few years.

An established brand and customer base

Establishing your new brand on the market can take years of effort and expense but with a franchise, customers will already know about the brand you are joining. Though you will still be expected to promote your business in its new territory, you will benefit from the many years of advertising and brand awareness already carried out by your franchise partner. You’ll also be part of their national marketing campaigns and enjoy access to large scale coverage, such as TV adverts, that would be prohibitively expensive to pay for on your own.

Product innovation and R&D

Well developed brands have the manpower and capital to be constantly researching their market and developing new products and services to adapt to changing consumer trends. They are more likely to invest in entirely new concepts where they are necessary to keep their business one step ahead of the competition. You may have some great ideas yourself, but with a smaller team you are going to need to focus on your core business. With a franchise, this is handled by specialist teams with the capital needed to get results already firmly behind them.

For yourself, but not by yourself

It is many people’s ambition to become self-employed and run their own business and franchising lets you do exactly that. You can enjoy all the benefits of being your own boss, but also be part of a larger network of like-minded individuals and industry experts with whom you can solve problems, and share ideas and best practice. Having that framework of support gives you a huge advantage. It can help you to quickly maximise the earning potential of your new franchise, as well as avoid the sense of isolation that can sometimes come with new business ownership. You’ll be able to tap into a shared resource of experience and expertise for advice and guidance whenever you need it.

What franchising is not

Franchising is not a get rich quick scheme, nor is it a 100% guarantee of success. You’re still going to have to work hard for it and how successful you are still comes down to you. It’s no easy option and it’s not for everyone, but it is a business format that has been proven time and time again to be the most stable and reliable way for the right people to achieve a great deal of success.

Put simply, it is a tried and tested formula for giving you a springboard to profitable business ownership far in advance of what you could achieve on your own.

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.

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.
