Every year, Americans spend billions of dollars remodeling their homes. The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University expects American homeowners to spend nearly $150 billion on major remodeling projects in 2014, up double-digits from a year ago.
How Do DreamMaker Franchises Stand Out?
DreamMaker is active within NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) and has taken leadership positions in the organization and within the industry. Our franchisees are among a top-performing group that also participates in GuildQuality ratings. GuildQuality surveys customers and publishes customer satisfaction surveys that let homeowners know whom 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.
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.
Steve Betts, former banker:
“What I made last year, there’s no way I would have made half of that doing what I was doing. … To some degree, the sky is the limit.”
Dale Ressler, who converted his remodeling business to DreamMaker:
“There are a lot of remodelers just working out of a truck who can do the work, but the experience we give the customer sets us apart. We do really good, quality work, but the process and relationship we build with clients is what sets us apart.”
