Brand Builder of the Year Award Winner Dream Doors gets Nominated for Two More Awards
19th September 2008
Since winning Brand Builder of the Year at the Franchisor of the Year Awards in July, kitchen facelift franchise, Dream Doors, has been nominated for two further awards.
Says Dream Doors’ founder, Troy Tappenden: “We’re really excited up at head office. This could potentially be a triple award whammy for the company before the year is out.”
In addition to clinching Brand Builder of the Year, Dream Doors’ Nottingham franchisees, Trevor and Anne Conduit, have been nominated for the Franchisee of the Year Award. Dream Doors is also a finalist in the National Training 2008 Awards in the medium employer category. The National Training Awards celebrate organisations and individuals that demonstrate outstanding business and personal success through investment in training. Dream Doors recruited sale training specialist, Virada, and drew up a programme to develop skills in a consultative approach, building genuine relationships, understanding customers wants and needs, presenting benefits effectively and helping customers with decision-making, securing its running in the contest.
Says Dream Doors’ Operations Director, Kelly Chambers: “We created a two-day introduction to selling workshop for all franchisees, and one-day refreshers as needed. Our sales training programme now features in our recruitment pitch and is also used to develop new franchisees. Last year, the training accounted for 165 extra sales totaling more than £575,000.”
