Why Kitchens Are Perfect for an Interior Design Franchise
A kitchen remodel can transform an entire home, and it’s a popular way for homeowners to spend their money. That’s why Kitchen Solvers is a great interior design franchise.
So, you’ve got your interior design degree, and you want to start your own business. What is the best interior design franchise? Good question. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics expects interior design jobs to increase by 19% between now and 2020 — but specialized design firms are expected to see 27% employment growth over that same time frame. That’s because, to quote the labor statistics department, “by specializing in a unique area of design, interior designers can use their knowledge of products to better fulfill customer requests.”
If you choose to focus on an area of expertise, you’d be hard pressed to find a better area than the kitchen. Kitchen and bath remodeling accounts for about $75 billion a year in consumer spending — it’s at the top of most remodeling to-do lists because kitchen remodels offer exceptional return on investment and can also elevate the ambiance of an entire home. And the remodeling industry itself is growing fast — Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies expects year-over-year industry growth to hit nearly 20% by the third quarter of 2013, driven by an improving economy, a rebounding housing market and pent-up demand.
Kitchen Solvers has been helping entrepreneurs start their own business for three decades and has developed training programs and systems that allow franchisees to max out their creativity and business skills in order to build thriving businesses. Some of our franchisees have years of experience as woodworkers and installers; others had a penchant for consultation and creative design, but no experience wearing a toolbelt. The beauty of being part of Kitchen Solvers is that you have constant contact with a team of industry professionals who offer marketing support, business systems and vendor relationships — as well as individualized coaching that helps ensure that franchisees play to their strengths as they build their businesses. For instance, if you’re a fantastic people-person, you will soar as a consultative salesperson; if you love the installation process, you may want to hire a salesperson. Whichever way you go, you’ll want to have a solid business plan, with marketing channels in place and a strategy for managing your sales pipeline.
