We find out the secrets of success from Louise and Matt, who look after some of its biggest clients.
The pair are the proud owners of a Christmas Decorators franchise in Birmingham.
Before investing in the interior decorating franchise, Louise’s career was in hospitality, events and catering. This included being an Operations Manager at the University of Birmingham, where she organised hundreds of events throughout the year.
Louise felt drawn to The Christmas Decorators franchise opportunity because of her love of all things festive. She also thought it was the perfect way to put her existing skills to good use.
She said: “I was looking for a business that best used my skills: project management, leading teams and giving great customer service. The Christmas Decorator Franchise focuses on these key skills, so it was a great fit for me.”
“I wanted a business that I could grow and grow quickly. The Christmas Decorating business is relatively new in the UK and an untapped market.”
Louise explains why this franchise opportunity stood out from the rest:
“It would have seemed logical for me to take a “food” franchise, however there is so much competition for these businesses, unlike The Christmas Decorators where we are in many ways unique.”
The franchisees enjoyed the initial training package that covered everything from producing decorated trees to marketing their business.
She added: “The initial training is intensive and comprehensive, but it doesn’t end there. I have found the head office support a continuation of the training.”
“They have been there to advise and guide throughout the six years I have had my franchise and the yearly training sessions and refresher courses held each year are invaluable.”
Like many Christmas-loving Brits, the franchisees believe that it really is a magical time of the year and they are thrilled to be able to make it so special for their clients. They also note how they are proud to be responsible for the incredible displays in the city and love to see the reactions of their friends and family.
The Christmas Decorators franchise opportunity has fantastic potential in term of sales growth and there aren’t many competitors.
“To start a business six years ago literally from the kitchen table to now running a large company operating from a 6000 sq ft warehouse is an achievement I will never tire from.”
There are currently 40 franchisees running their own The Christmas Decorators business. If you’re intrigued by the franchise opportunity and would like to find out more, head over to its client page.
