The DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen remodeling franchise is booming. Average franchisee revenue grew more than 60% from 2011 to 2014, and this is shaping up to be another great year for the remodeling franchise. Now we’re looking to grow by partnering with an entrepreneur in Norfolk.

Why Norfolk? Why now?

Norfolk is a prime market for a remodeling franchise. There are more than 690,000 housing units in the Norfolk area, according to a 2013 report from the U.S. Census Bureau, and the median year of construction was 1979, which means that more than half of properties are significantly more than 30 years old. That’s a big deal, because remodeling activity increases as buildings get older — peaking around 30 years of age and continuing at a high level thereafter. This makes Norfolk a great place for a remodeling business!
