DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Every year, Americans spend billions of dollars remodeling their homes. There is huge demand for remodeling services, making now a great time to consider a remodeling franchise. There are a lot of remodelers, but just how many great remodeling companies are there?

There were 650,000 remodelers in the United States at last count, according to data gathered by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2008. Most of those, however, were individual contractors - the people DreamMaker franchise owners hire, not necessarily the people we compete against. Of those, only about 200,000 were part of a firm with a payroll, and only 60,000 were part of a business that reported revenues greater than $250,000, indicating that they did significant business. Those 60,000 remodelers, spread throughout the United States, are DreamMaker's competitors.

By offering excellent service to our customers, and excellent systems and support to our franchise partners. Of those 60,000 competing firms, only about 10% are members of the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, which is devoted to ethics and professionalism. DreamMaker is active within NARI and has taken leadership positions in the organization and within the industry. Our franchisees are among a top performing group that also participate in GuildQuality ratings. GuildQuality surveys customers and publishes customer satisfaction surveys that let homeowners know who they can trust - and DreamMaker's satisfaction scores are stellar (based on completed customer surveys of participating franchisees). 96% of our customers would recommend us to a friend or family member. That sort of word of mouth powers the long-term success of a remodeling franchise business, and it's a direct result of the excellent franchisees we attract and the systems we have in place to help them succeed and serve their customers.

DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen has a rich heritage in home remodeling franchising. It started out as part of The Dwyer Group, which has decades of experience helping plumbers, electricians, landscapers and others build successful franchise businesses. In 2003, Doug Dwyer purchased DreamMaker as a separate entity, but the business retains close familial ties to The Dwyer Group and benefits from the deep franchising history that was established by the late Don Dwyer Sr., a visionary businessman who started the International Franchise Association's VetFran program, which offers discounts to make franchise ownership more affordable for veterans

DreamMaker has continued that legacy by providing extraordinarily detailed systems and tools to help entrepreneurs start and grow a remodeling business. Some of our owners were new to remodeling when they started their DreamMaker remodeling franchise. Others already owned a remodeling business, but found a new level of success - both in their business and personal lives - by becoming part of the DreamMaker family.

Our History
We got our start back in 1975. The kitchen remodeling franchise company's roots can be traced back to the 1970s when GNU Corporation developed a system to put a beautiful new hard-surface topcoat on porcelain bathtubs and sinks. Since 1988, under the name Worldwide Refinishing Systems, Inc., our network continuously created a vast array of possibilities to turn kitchens and bathrooms into personal reflections of our DreamMaker consumers. Under the Dwyer Group umbrella, the company grew nationally as Worldwide Refinishing Systems, Inc. and became a recognized leader in our trade. In 1999, we were rechristened DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen by Worldwide. This new title captures the mission that we offer full-service bath, kitchen, and full-interior remodeling services.

When DreamMaker President and Chief Stewardship Officer (CSO) Doug Dwyer purchased the company in 2003, the dream continued as the company vastly expanded its services, moving beyond resurfacing and refinishing to become a full-service interior remodeling company focused on enhancing lives and improving homes. His leadership earned the company Remodeler of the Year by Pro Remodeler Magazine in 2004 making DreamMaker a name to remember in the remodeling industry. DreamMaker has since been ranked in the top 10 Remodelers in the Nation by Qualified Remodeler's Top 500, Franchise Gator Top 100 Franchise, Entrepreneur Top 500 Franchise and Franchise Business Review Top 50 Franchise.

Where can I see DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen's FDD (Franchise Disclosure Document)?

Buying a Franchise Guide: What is a Franchise Disclosure Document?

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
