Dream Doors opens first Irish showroom

Dream Doors has launched its kitchen door replacement concept in Ireland. The first showroom opened in South Dublin and covers Lexlip through to Dun-Leary, Rathcool and Wicklow and is operated by franchisee Colin Knightly. The new showroom is part of Dream Doors' five-year Irish expansion plan to open at least six showrooms nationwide. Dream Doors now seeks new franchisees to turn this vision into a reality.

'This is the seventh showroom we have opened this year,' enthuses Dream Doors Managing Director Troy Tappenden (pictured above (L) with Mary Treacy-Knightley, Sales Manager Brendan Treacy and Colin). 'The other showrooms are based in the UK'in Norwich, Kingston, Plymouth, Exeter, Northants and Gloucester. We are now looking to recruit more hardworking resilient individuals with good communication skills in Ireland.

'Dream Doors has entered the Irish market at the perfect time because people are renovating their homes instead of moving due to the economy. Our service enables customers to give their kitchen a 'facelift' without the price tag as we replace doors, worktops and sinks.'

Colin's background is in the printing industry. He says: 'Dream Doors appealed to me because it was a product I would love to sell and I knew from the UK franchisees that the principal works, the quality is excellent and holds well in the current economic climate. The launch was a resounding success, over 50 people attended and we are still getting calls from people who could not attend. We made two sales in the first week.'
