The Management Opportunity

A few frequently asked questions
Do I get a territory?

Yes, you get a protected geographic area that is created using a sophisticated demographic information that is based on real customer profiles. Needless to say, we ensure that each territory has the client base needed to build a significant business. We will discuss your territory at an appropriate stage. As long as you can satisfy the demand for our services in your area then the territory will remain yours.

What is my role in the business?

As a Shuttercraft Franchise owner your role is to effectively manage the business on a day-to-day basis. This includes sales promotion and business development, quoting for new work, surveying and having your team install the Shuttercraft product range. You are the Brand Ambassador in your area and as such represent the values of the entire franchise network.

Am I suitable?

The ideal Franchisee will already have some sales and/or management experience. However, we do offer full training and support to help all Franchisees hit the ground running.

Good communication and interpersonal skills are essential and Franchisees must be prepared to work hard, follow our system and be fully committed to getting the business off the ground in their assigned area. To succeed you need an eye for detail and a passion for excellent service. You must be a people person with the ability to become a trusted advisor to your customer.

Will I be installing shutters?

Although we will give you all the training needed to install shutters, you will not be doing the fitting. You will manage a team who will do the physical fitting leaving you to focus on developing relationships and growing your business.

How much money do I need to invest in the business?

For a business that produces our turnover and profits, the initial costs are relatively low. Suffice to say, we have relationships with banks and financial institutions that can help you to fund the franchise. Get in touch by emailing us at hello@shuttercraft.co.uk to find out more.

How much can I earn?

Your earning potential as a franchisee will depend on your efforts and ambitions. A franchise has tremendous potential to offer a significant level of financial return. Typically, you will be looking to generate revenues in excess of £500,000 over the course of your first three years.

We have developed detailed financial models based on our experience and we will happily share these with you following an initial meeting to discuss your suitability.

What do I need to do next?

No website can answer all of your questions. However, if you like what you have read so far please Book a Discovery Call with a member of our franchising team.

Should you meet our initial selection criteria we will then contact you to arrange a face-to-face meeting. This is the next stage of our recruitment process and carries no obligation on either of us.

This is an opportunity for you to find out more about our business and about us. This way we can get to know each other a little better.
