Franchisees in the UK have come from a wide variety of backgrounds, all sharing a keen interest in interior design; from senior roles in IT, architecture, engineering and marketing to teaching, F&B, electrical and the kitchen industry itself.
Your role as the franchisee is to lead your showroom team, welcoming prospective customers and overseeing the operation of your business, including an active role in the sales and providing exceptional customer service.
“We have a lot of flexibility for doing the sizes we want, and a wider range of options. It’s a very sustainable, natural product, and all those factors put it above a lot of competitors in the industry.”
Agron Llupa, Schmidt Beaconsfield

A global brand
behind your local business
- 30 Showrooms in the UK
- 70+ Territories available
- 800+ Showrooms worldwide
- €1billion+ Global group turnover
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.
If you are interested in learning more about the Schmidt business opportunity and:
- Are passionate about sales, management and design
- Enjoy providing excellent customer service
- Prefer working on high-value transactions
- Want to build and lead your own team
- Able to invest at least £70K (+ borrowing)
Then get in touch for a franchise prospectus, which will give you more details on the business, financials and opportunity.
