Founded in 2010 in New Zealand by Barry Bloomfield, Chris Caiger and Jon Bridge, the company’s key focus is on marketing Refresh Renovations as a high-end specialist in the
£28.5bn UK renovations sector that provides consistent, high quality customer service.
Its proven, five-stage process gives customers peace of mind and includes:
• An initial consultation.
• A concept and feasibility study.
• Provision of working drawings and costings.
• Management of the build stage.
• A project delivered on time and on budget.
In 2015, the company won the Best Emerging System Award at the NZ Franchise Awards.
The judges said: “Refresh Renovations had identified clear business objectives and had robust planning processes, complemented by formal and informal communication. We were impressed by the positive business results achieved to date.”
Refresh Renovations is part of a company called Traffic. Established in 2003, Traffic is a business strategy and marketing organisation with experience in the building industry.
Refresh Renovations gives a franchisee everything they need to build a successful business that operates under the company’s brand name and utilises its systems and know-how.
This is a management franchise opportunity - Refresh Renovations franchise owners are business managers not builders. They employ a team of builders to manage the construction side of the business.
Central to the franchise is Refresh Renovation’s bespoke cloud-based management system that allows franchisees to manage sales, customers and projects in as efficient manner as possible.
As well as generating leads for franchisees, Refresh Renovations partners them with experienced architects, builders and tradespeople from its extensive network of contacts.
Franchisees also get access to a number of brands in the construction and design industry that Refresh Renovations already has relationships with and benefit from the company’s group buying power when it comes to the purchase of construction materials.
The company has franchise opportunities available throughout the UK.
The Refresh Renovations franchise fee is £50,000.
Operating in a vastly fragmented market where there are no national competitors and no other franchised businesses doing the same, prospective investors will benefit from a:
• Proven business system.
• An IT platform to manage the business - including planning - as well as individual projects.
• Marketing and branding.
• Training and support.
The demand for renovation work has been boosted by recent changes to Stamp Duty, making it more cost effective to stay and renovate than to move. Historically, during periods of economic uncertainty this sector of the market has proven to be very resilient, as people are always looking to adapt and improve their own surroundings.
If you have been a successful manager, it is likely that you will be a successful franchise owner. Refresh is looking for management and leadership skills not building skills from the franchise owner. In fact, this company would prefer it if candidates had no previous trade experience.
What Refresh Renovations is looking for in potential franchisees is business management experience, plus good organisational and sales and marketing skills. They must also be computer literate and have ambitions to build a business over a period of 10 to 15 years that can very quickly turn over £1m plus.
This company’s head office is in London.
Training is comprehensive and gives franchisees a thorough grounding in all areas of the business.
The initial and ongoing support provided by the franchisor enables franchisees to develop their business and maximise return on investment. Assistance includes business coaching, best practice bench marketing and information sharing across the franchisee network.
Refresh Renovations’ central support office helps franchisees with marketing their businesses, administration, HR and IT.
Quarterly review meetings are held between the company’s support staff and franchisees to determine progress, while two conferences are arranged every year, giving franchisees the opportunity to meet other members of the network and ensure they are up to date with developments in the industry.
The company has a 15-year legal agreement made up of three, five-year rolling deals. There are no secondary franchise fees to pay on renewal (only legal costs) at any stage.
Complete the enquiry form on this page and a member of the Refresh Renovations franchise recruitment team will be in touch for a no-obligation chat about the business.
This company has a structured approach to franchisee recruitment that begins with a face-to-face meeting at Refresh Renovations’ head office and is followed by the provision of financial information about the franchise.
A period of due diligence is then recommended by the company, which states it’s advisable to consult professionals familiar with the franchise industry to gain an independent view of the business proposition on offer.
Prospective franchisees are also invited to talk to established Refresh Renovations franchisees to get further understanding of what’s required to run the business.
At this stage, a draft franchise agreement is provided to potential investors.
Following a final meeting, Refresh Renovations will make a formal franchise offer and confirm which territory a franchisee will be trading from.
The franchise agreement is then signed by both parties and initial training begins.
