4 Tips For Starting The Cabinet Business

4 Tips for Starting a Cabinet Business

Starting a cabinet business could be your first move on a path to owning and operating your lucrative business. But it is imperative do it the right way if you’re going to succeed. So, how do you start a cabinet business?

1. Want To Know How To Start A Cabinet Business? It’s All About Who Getting The Right Help.

Before asking yourself how to start a cabinet business, the first question should be what kind of cabinet business do you want to start. Do you want to start a cabinet business from scratch, or are you interested in investing in a franchise where you are a local owner of that cabinet business? It’s a question that applies to starting just about any business and there are pros and cons to each. But when it comes to the cabinet business, there’s a clear winner.

Totally owning your own cabinet business might sound exciting, but how practical is it? Do you know someone who can install the cabinets? Are you able to run your own marketing and build your brand? Do you have the financial capacity to get you through at least a year of not being profitable while you are getting going? Have you considered all of the logistics of purchasing cabinets, shipping and storing, and installing them? If you’re like most people, the answer to all these questions is probably, “Not quite”. Buying a cabinet franchise gives you so many advantages for a modest franchising fee. You get guidance and support as well as the opportunity to operate off a template that has been proven to be successful, you get to operate under an established brand name, and more. So, how do you start a cabinet business? You figure out the right cabinet franchise to buy.

2. Determine The Right Cabinet Business For You.

Whether you’ve decided to start a business on your own, or you are considering a franchise, you need to determine what kind of business you want to be in. There are cabinet businesses that are strictly retailers that just sell cabinets to clients. Then there are cabinet businesses that offer design and/or installation services. Full cabinet businesses offering the design and installation will require a different business model than that of just a cabinet sales business. Oftentimes, at Kitchen Solvers, we hear from our franchise partners that their favorite part of being an owner is designing and installing a stunning kitchen for their clients. Consider what you want to get out of the business before making a final decision. Additionally, if you are looking at a franchise, make sure it is a cabinet franchisor who offers initial training as well as ongoing support. There are a lot of moving parts in cabinet businesses and it is  crucial to find a franchisor who will allocate to you a well-defined and exclusive territory, so that you have a competitive advantage and are not selling against someone with the same products near your territory.

3. Find The Right Support System.

After determining if you will start the business yourself or choose a franchise, you’ll need to establish a support system. If you are starting your own cabinet business, you’ll need to consider things like business admin vendors, accountants, lawyers to review contracts, vendors to supply cabinetry and any other products like countertops, backsplashes and flooring you plan to offer. If you’ve decided investing in a franchise is how you will start your cabinet business, you will want to find one that has all of these relationships already created for you. Cabinet franchises are comparatively inexpensive to buy and start up. You can buy and start a Kitchen Solvers franchise for around $100,000. Compared to other businesses, that’s inexpensive, but it’s still a lot of money. However, considering the time, knowledge, brand equity, and resources provided with that investment, it is usually a no-brainer.
