Uncertain about his future as an engineering manager at a food factory, Allan James decided to invest in a Dream Doors franchise with his son Glyn in order to regain control of their destinies.
“When the factory was taken over, they introduced new cost cutting measures, which included multiple redundancies left, right and centre,” recalls Allan. “I became frustrated and decided it was the ideal time to pursue my dream of becoming my own boss. At the time, Glyn was working in furniture sales – he was keen to progress his career so agreed to join me in business.
“As neither of us had any experience of running our own business, we decided to invest in a franchise as the thought of ongoing training and support was an appealing safety net. Kitchen facelift franchise Dream Doors caught our attention online because of its unique business model and comprehensive support package.
