DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen Remodeling Franchise
Professionalism, strong franchise systems give DreamMaker franchise owners an advantage
Every year, Americans spend billions of dollars remodeling their homes. The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University says the remodeling industry could easily see record-breaking spending in 2015.
There is huge demand for remodeling services — and there are a lot of remodelers. But just how many great remodeling companies are there?
There were 650,000 remodelers in the United States at last count, according to data gathered by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2008. Most of those, however, were individual contractors — the people DreamMaker franchise owners hire, not necessarily the people we compete against. Of those, only about 200,000 were part of a firm with a payroll, and only 60,000 were part of a business that reported revenues greater than $250,000, indicating that they did significant business. Those 60,000 remodelers, spread throughout the United States, are DreamMaker’s competitors.
How Do DreamMaker Franchises Stand Out?
By offering excellent service to our customers, and excellent systems and support to our franchise partners. Of those 60,000 competing firms, only about 10% are members of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, which is devoted to ethics and professionalism. DreamMaker is active within NARI and has taken leadership positions in the organization and within the industry. Our franchisees are among a top performing group that also participate in GuildQuality ratings. GuildQuality surveys customers and publishes customer satisfaction surveys that let homeowners know who they can trust — and DreamMaker’s satisfaction scores are stellar (based on completed customer surveys of participating franchisees). 96% of our customers would recommend us to a friend or family member. That sort of word of mouth powers the long-term success of a remodeling business, and it’s a direct result of the excellent franchisees we attract and the systems we have in place to help them succeed and serve their customers.
A Rich Heritage in Bath and Kitchen Remodeling Franchises
DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen has a rich heritage in home remodeling franchising. It started out as part of The Dwyer Group, which has decades of experience helping plumbers, electricians, landscapers and others build successful franchise businesses. In 2003, Doug Dwyer purchased DreamMaker as a separate entity, but the business retains close familial ties to The Dwyer Group and benefits from the deep franchising history that was established by the late Don Dwyer Sr., a visionary businessman who started the International Franchise Association’s VetFran program, which offers discounts to make franchise ownership more affordable for veterans.
DreamMaker has continued that legacy by providing extraordinarily detailed systems and tools to help entrepreneurs start and grow a remodeling business. Some of our owners were new to remodeling when they started their DreamMaker franchise. Others already owned a remodeling business, but found a new level of success — both in their business and personal lives — by becoming part of the DreamMaker family.
