Schmidt is ready to help people design their perfect home as remote working becomes more widespread.
“Figures show that 60 percent of people would like to work from home more often after lockdown,” says Rosalyn Hastings, Expansion Manager for the Schmidt franchise in the UK.
“Many of those will be looking to improve their homes to make home working easier and more comfortable and Schmidt franchisees will benefit from helping them.”
The home improvement franchise has been helping people upgrade their homes with quality solutions for years. As Scott Hardy, Schmidt’s Norwich franchisee says:
“We specialise in flexible space and storage solutions and provide matching furniture that looks as stylish in a Zoom call as in family use. We can also add extra, dedicated home offices, fitting them into spaces such as under the stairs – more convenient than installing an office in a garage or garden.”
Working with a wide range of different rooms gives Schmidt franchisees the chance to develop multiple income streams and even boost profits by transforming clients’ entire homes. The Creativ’Box tool allows customers to design their future room or home in 3D as a first step, giving Schmidt franchiseesan insight into their vision.
As the UK begins to emerge from its nationwide lockdown, Schmidt is dedicated to providing a safe environment for its customers. It has distributed face masks, antibacterial gel and disinfectant wipes and will follow the government’s social distancing guidelines when it officially reopens.
Despite the challenges brought on by the coronavirus crisis, the Schmidt brand has big plans for expansion. Rosalyn explained:
“We are still planning to open 100 showrooms in the UK by the end of 2025, so we are looking right now for ambitious people who want to join us in a growing business.”
You can open your own Schmidt unit for an initial investment of between £80,000and £100,000, and the franchise will support you to secure an additional £250,000 in loans. Head to its franchise page to find out more about getting involved.
