New franchise opportunity available

Senator Windows, which supplies and installs energy-efficient PVCu windows, doors and conservatories, has launched its franchise opportunity. The company was established 25 years ago and from its Wexford-based manufacturing facility it sells fully certified products through a network of independent agents. Senator Windows has now announced all its future expansion will be through franchising.

Senator Windows is offering two types of franchises - a home-based franchise using a vehicle adapted for use as a mobile showroom or a franchise operated from a new or existing commercial premises.

The company is looking for ambitious individuals who want to set up their own business within the framework of a proven business model and earn themselves unlimited financial rewards.

Senator Windows Managing Director, Kevin Richards, said: "We are actively looking for franchise partners for a number of locations nationwide. This is a full-time job for social individuals who are well organised, with a good customer service attitude. No technical skills are required and previous industry experience is not necessary. We will train a franchise owner in all aspects of the business including sales, installations, marketing techniques, basic accounting and we will provide the highest level of support.

"The business is there. 'Green' building is no longer a fad. The market for energy rated windows in Ireland is worth millions and it continues to grow year on year as customers seek greater efficiency as a result of Government initiatives and rising energy prices.

"If our business was busy in a boom, it can be even busier in a downturn. Today, people are staying in their homes improving not moving and energy-efficient windows and doors are a priority investment in the home improvement sector."

Senator Window is a division of the Gowan Group, a family-owned holding company which controls many successful Irish businesses.

Richards added: "We believe our franchise package is outstanding. It offers an exceptional opportunity for someone with good selling skills, a future with real potential for high earnings with an interesting work/life balance."
