Company Details

Established in the US in 2019, Zones and Refresh combined have over 100 franchised units internationally. Refresh and Zones are the world's largest design and build residential renovation & landscaping company with very ambitious growth targets in the US.

Zones 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), 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) and Matt Steele (25 years in the building industry in sales, marketing and general management roles).


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 and Zones Landscaping - a franchised business that offer homeowners exceptional service, end-to-end project management and, essentially, an experience that allows them to achieve their ideas on-time and on-budget.


The result? Refresh and Zones are now award-winning franchise companies with a growing number of successful franchises in the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

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.
