Founded in 1972, Apollo Blinds is part of the Hunter Douglas Group – the UK’s largest and oldest manufacturer of window blinds.

An Apollo Blinds franchise: a unique window of opportunity

The Apollo Blinds franchise model gives motivated people the opportunity to create businesses without many of the difficulties of starting from scratch – establishing a reputation, positioning the business in a market, developing a brand and so on. 

The upfront investment is low, and you can start your business on a mobile basis. This means you won’t have the expense of renting premises. Even if you later expand and decide to rent a showroom, you won’t need to hold valuable stock or create your own marketing materials, so you can focus your energy on connecting with customers and selling and installing our premium-quality blinds, shutters, curtains and awnings.

And (the part you might be most interested in!) you can expect a healthy return on your investment from day one, thanks to our solid business model.

Happy franchisees, healthy growth

We work hard to ensure our franchisees get the support they need to achieve business growth. Recently, we won Work Buzz’s Continuous Improvement Award and received a five-star franchisee satisfaction rating.

Because you’re running your own business, you can set appointment times around your existing personal commitments and achieve a better work–life balance – you can finally make those school plays and doctor’s appointments.

You’ll be part of a 50-strong network of happy, helpful franchisees, who are ready and willing to share their Apollo Blinds stories and top tips.

The benefits of this supportive environment can be felt right from the start – we received a 100% franchisee rating in the Work Buzz Survey for initial training and support.

If you know nothing about blinds…

That’s OK! And if you know lots, that’s OK too! Our franchisees join us from a staggering range of different fields, so we provide each franchisee with a completely customised training plan that matches their DIY skills, product knowledge and business experience.

After the initial training, you will receive ongoing training and support in whatever areas you need – product information, business growth, installation techniques, marketing, etc.

What you’ll do

Our franchisees are focused on growing their businesses by offering a professional, knowledgeable and friendly service in their local areas. This starts with the home consultation, where you’ll advise on the best products, fabrics and finishes for the customer’s specific needs. Once we’ve manufactured their order, you’ll return to the customer’s home to install their fabulous new window covering.

Alongside these day-to-day activities, you’ll also engage in marketing activity with the support of our expert marketing team and extensive suite of promotional materials. You’ll monitor responses to these activities, as well as keep a close eye on your flourishing business’s finances.

If you’re friendly, willing to learn and motivated to run your own window blinds franchise business, we’d love to hear from you

Home Improvement Franchises

The UK DIY market alone was forecast to be worth over £8.3bn in 2017 so the home improvement market in the UK is a huge opportunity for anyone interested in the sector.

So what sort of home improvement franchises are available? Some of the different types of home improvement franchises include;

  • Granite worktops and other granite sheets for kitchen and bathroom renovations
  • Locksmith franchises
  • Guttering & roofing
  • Disaster recover, fire, flood etc
  • Drive way construction and cleaning

As more and more pressure is put on governments and local authority to build more new homes this will no doubt increase demand for the above for both the new home build market and ongoing for renovation and repair works. Many people seeking this sort of opportunity may already have a trade and industry experience and wish to work for themselves but with the backing of a franchise brand to help with new business generation and any existing contractual business locally but all franchises usually offer full training and support so dependant on the home improvement franchise this could be a way for someone to change direction.

As with any business opportunity or business purchase you need to take professional advice and carry out due diligence before you invest.
