Established in the US in 2018, Refresh has over 70 franchised
units internationally. Refresh is the world's largest design and
build residential renovation company with very ambitious growth
targets in the US.
Refresh Renovations was co-founded by some of New Zealand's
biggest industry leaders in marketing and business growth - Chris
Caiger (prev. Head of Marketing for Fletcher Building Group), Barry
Bloomfield (designed the Sellotape logo and put the star in the
Heineken logo), and Jon Bridge (has provided business and marketing
support for Fletcher Building, Fonterra, Dulux, Meridian Energy,
Merck, Sharp and Dohme, Pilkington Glass, Rinnai, New Zealand
Steel, and Knight Frank - to name a few).
After establishing business strategy and marketing consultancy
company Traffic in 2003, the group quickly discovered that the
residential renovations sector held significant room for
improvement. Despite the size of the industry, it was clear that
the majority of homeowners were either being left disappointed by
the final costs, timelines and quality of their renovations or felt
too nervous to even begin a project! So, Traffic's directors
developed Refresh Renovations - a franchise business that offers
homeowners exceptional service, end-to-end project management and,
essentially, a renovation experience that allows them to achieve
their ideas on-time and on-budget.
The result? Refresh is now an award-winning franchise company
with a growing number of successful franchises in the United
States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

that territory could have up to 5 franchises.
