A global brand behind your local business

in the UK
Showrooms worldwide
Global group

Founded in 1959 by Hubert Schmidt, the brand is now owned and operated by his granddaughters who have continued to uphold the strong ethos and culture, building on their family’s legacy. Where global brands of this size are often owned by corporations and VCs more interested in the financials, Schmidt is refreshingly human. Many of the 1,700+ employees at the 5 factories in Alsace plus 1 in Germany, view Schmidt as a job-for-life, ten/twenty/thirty-plus years!

For you and your employees this translates into industry-leading guidance, training and ongoing support. The profitability of your business is vital to ensure longevity and mutual ongoing success.

For example, there has been a drive to empower franchisees to grow their share of the high-margin interiors market, with HQ investing ‎€50M+ in a new factory to satisfy increasing demand.

Schmidt franchisees celebrate business boom as pandemic recedes

Requests for quotes are up by 66%, with two-thirds of those resulting in sales, while the average order value is up a quarter.

“We’re really pleased to see the success our network is having,” says Jean-Michel Peragine, Head of Expansion for Schmidt UK.

“All our UK showrooms were in lockdown only a year ago, so it’s reassuring that retail turnover has bounced back and is up 111%, while traffic to our website is up 19%.

“Our franchisees kept in touch with their customers throughout the lockdowns, encouraging them to stay connected with the Schmidt brand, and that’s paying off now as the orders come in.”

Jean-Michel says the shift in consumer spending has paid off for the brand and its franchisees.

“A lot of people found themselves with unexpected savings after the lockdowns as they couldn’t go on holiday, didn’t change their cars, and saved on eating out and entertainment.

“So many of them decided to invest in a new kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or study, and found our bespoke designs, custom-built solutions and new ranges were just what they were looking for.

“As the pandemic begins to recede, this is a great time to become a franchisee with this long-established interiors company.”

Schmidt has enjoyed a strong Q1, with four new showrooms open, and more in the pipeline for later this year and beyond.

“We’re seeing strong interest. We’ve got a great brand, more than 60 years of heritage, and products that customers love,” says Jean-Michel.

“That all adds up to a very attractive proposition for entrepreneurs looking to enter a buoyant and still-growing market, as our figures show.”
