Dream Doors, the UK’s largest kitchen makeover retailer, has invested £750,000 in a new state-of-the-art training centre featuring a range of the company’s high-end products alongside the latest appliances from Blanco, Franke, Karndean and Samsung.
The site, based in the grounds of the Grade II*-listed Cams Hall Estate in Fareham, Hampshire, is a major milestone in the company’s development, adding the infrastructure required to support 100 franchisees by the end of next year.
Dream Doors was recently able to run its largest ever franchisee training course at the site, taking seven new business owners and their partners through a comprehensive three-week programme.
In the centre, new franchisees – who won’t have had any previous kitchen industry experience – learn how to deal with customers, how to survey kitchens, how to find and recruit staff and how to order parts.
All 84 existing Dream Doors franchisees will also benefit from continuous training and development undertaken at the new site.
"We offer industry leading and award-winning training and support. So investing in this new training centre is fitting for the size and status our company has grown to enjoy.
It was high time to move into a state-of-the-art, purpose-built training centre. It lets us replicate what our business owners will have to do in customers’ homes in a controlled learning environment.For existing franchisees, we will also be rolling out a series of workshops and courses designed to cater to those who are at a more advanced stage of their Dream Doors career. This is all part of our ethos of continual professional development."
Dream Doors is continuously reinvesting in training and support for its new and existing franchisees. In short, while the training centre looks fantastic, it’s not there to be pretty – it’s to help all of our franchisees accelerate their businesses."

Everything about the franchise works as it is written in the manual and, in your early days, this is important while you learn the business.Paul Reeder
The training and support has been fantastic and has really reinforced the fact that we made the right decision. The initial training was really helpful and there have been plenty of visits from the Franchise Support Manager to keep us on the right path.Helen Mahon
If you want to work for yourself and have more flexibility, I would recommend a Dream Doors franchise. Also it’s good to know that you can run your own business, but still have the back up of a national company.Matt Jones
