At a time when the pandemic has seen many businesses experience challenges and setbacks, the home improvement sector is seeing its services in greater demand than ever.  It could be as simple as the fact that: “People have been stuck at home and are sick of looking at their curtains!” as Tony Reid, Franchise Manager at Shuttercraft, explained in a Panel Session at The National Franchise Exhibition virtual held in May. 

Tony was joined by Alex Waite, Franchise Recruitment Director at Dream Doors and Alex Marsango, Franchise Manager at Prokil to share insights on “Why home improvement/maintenance franchises are so popular in the UK”.

Hosted by Damian Humphreys of Ashtons Franchise Consulting, the panel discussed:

– Why franchises in this sector are thriving
– How to make the most of the current growth opportunity in home improvement and maintenance
– What lies ahead for this buoyant market
– What kind of person will succeed in this industry – and the next steps to take
