5 Things You Didn't Know

The Wooden Floor Store has 20 years of experience in the flooring sector and has established a highly successful franchise model which stretches across the UK. Lets take a look at five things you might not know about the interior decorating franchise:

  1. It works to provide the perfect service to each customer. From the start of the customers selection process to the final moments of installation, The Wooden Floor Store aims to provide the best possible flooring and service to each and every customer. To aid shoppers in their decision-making process, the flooring franchise has a range of samples which can be taken away completely free of charge. Every building has different light, dcor and requirements, and consumers can experiment with as many different samples as they like to see whether they work in their own home. These samples can even be delivered for free to any address in the UK, after being dispatched the same day they were ordered. If customers are unable to decide on their flooring, The Wooden Floor Store offers a bespoke design service which tailors flooring to individual specifications, allowing customers to select and combine their preferred colour, size, format and finish. The flooring franchise even aims to beat its competitors by offering to replicate flooring by bigger companies that may have caught customers eyes, at a lower cost.
  2. It delivers fast service in all aspects of the business. The Wooden Floor Store claims that if a customer buys flooring in the morning, the company can dispatch it the same day. If customers opt to pick up their purchase from the stores warehouse collection point, staff are on-hand to load the order into the vehicle to ensure a quick and simple collection process. The Wooden Floor Store knows that once customers have decided on their favourite flooring, they want to get it installed in their home as soon as possible and without delays. To this end, all the stores real wood flooring comes pre-finished, so that it can be immediately fitted on arrival and walked on without further treatment. This ensures a hassle-free installation process. Customers can choose whether their floorboards have a matt, satin, gloss, stained, brushed, hand-scraped lacquer or oil finish. The Wooden Floor Store does the hard work on behalf of its customers, providing flooring that is attractive to look at and easy to maintain.
  3. It cares about the environment. We live in a world where one and a half acres of forest is cut down every second, and if deforestation continues at the current rate, there will be no rainforests left in 100 years time. As a business that provides real wood products, The Wooden Floor Store is proud of its ethos of integrity and the high operational standards by which it abides. The franchise sources all its wood products sustainably and has total control over the supply process, with the ability to trace every plank of wood back to the forest from which it originated. The Wooden Floor Store fully supports the EU Timber Regulation (EUTR), which prohibits the selling of illegally harvested timber on the EU market, and has passed the EUTR inspection which is carried out by the government.
  4. It has been recognised at numerous award ceremonies. The franchise has been the recipient of various awards that mark its status as a leading flooring provider. The awarding bodies that have recognised the company include the Scottish Home Improvement Awards, Scotlands biggest yearly industry trade event which last year acknowledged more than 1,000 businesses, and Ulster Tatler, which holds its annual award ceremony every September to promote Northern Irelands best talent. Ulster Tatler hosts over 400 businesspeople and local celebrities for a drinks reception, four-course meal, awards ceremony and after-show party. The Wooden Floor Store was a winner at the Scottish Home Improvement Awards in 2015 and a Finalist and Winner at the Ulster Tatler Awards in 2014 and 2016 respectively.
  5. You can franchise with The Wooden Floor Store. The flooring brand is looking for franchisees to expand the business across the UK. The Wooden Floor Store is right behind its franchisees and provides guidance to ensure that any new franchises are a success. Those who choose to invest in the business will gain a number of benefits. These include the right to use the brand names, trademarks and products, access to the company training scheme and support with site selection, fit-out, launch and web presence.
