Chris Rocker, the man behind the UK’s fastest-growing independent retail shutter company and franchise, has shared the story of how he built his thriving business.

After spending six years in the Royal Air Force and more than 25 years in the world of sales and operations, Chris entered 2006 looking for a new challenge. He loved the style of plantation shutters and wanted to start a specialist business to meet growing levels of demand for this kind of window covering.

After a number of successful years, Chris looked into ways to expand the business. Franchising seemed like the best way to do so and Just Shutters created a comprehensive franchise package that would allow other entrepreneurs to expand the brand.

Since then, Chris and the team have worked hard to build the business into the multi-million-pound success story it is today. It has installed more than £27 million worth of shutters and has thousands of satisfied customers.

Looking to the future, the furniture franchise is hoping to help its franchise partners smash their goals and continue to expand their product offerings with new technology such as voice-activated shutter controls. Even in challenging circumstances, founder Chris is confident Just Shutters and its franchisees will continue to thrive.

“The ability to adapt is key to any businesses success, I believe development, forward-thinking, and an entrepreneurial spirit whilst maintaining a family feel has been our success. Our network of passionate business owners works together as a whole to push the business forward.”

He explained how the network has faced this year’s challenges head-on.

“We tackled the Covid-19 crisis in a professional and 'can-do' manner and while the business couldn't actively trade, we introduced a Home Measuring Kit to keep the sales coming in. During this time, many of our franchisees chose to support their local communities by providing a shop-and-drop service to the elderly or vulnerable. I'm exceptionally proud of all their efforts.”

If you want to join this growing franchise, you’ll need to invest just £27,000 (with up to 70% available as funding). Find out more on its client page.
