Schmidt Kitchens

Home improvement franchise Schmidt Kitchens are the #1 kitchens manufacturer in France, with a 43% market share. They have more than 400 showrooms in France, and altogether more than 550 showrooms in 25 different countries. They are now looking to build on their success by expanding their business into the UK. If you have an entrepreneurial flair, and are passionate about sales and the home improvement and furniture industries, this franchise opportunity could be for you.

While 80% of their core business is kitchens, Schmidt also manufacture and distribute home improvement products for bathrooms and innovative storage solutions. They distribute their products through a franchise network where franchisees manage their own showroom. Franchisees are able to enjoy the freedom and independence of owning their own home improvement business, but they’re by no means alone. Franchisees receive ongoing support with everything from IT, marketing and sales, right down to the design and layout of the showroom, plus the security of being part of a well-established and successful brand.
