Our franchisees come from all walks of life and varied previous careers, but they all have two things in common – they love working with people and over-delivering on customer service AND they have a real passion for interior design and decoration.
If you’re passionate about interiors and love working with people, then you can build a fantastic business with RAISON Home whatever your career background!
Looking at franchisees in Belgium as a newer market:
· 5 were working previously in the KBB
· 1 was selling outdoor wooden products: pool-houses, car-park
· 1 was key account manager in the HR services
· 1 was working for a lift company
· 1 was working in the police
· 1 was working as an accountant
Why would I swap my job in KBB to become a RAISON Home franchise owner?
In the UK KBB industry, let’s assume you have a basic salary of around £21k. If you hit a sales target of £500k each year, you might expect an OTE of £45k - £50kpa
Our franchise owners generally enjoy a 30% profit margin* so by joining RAISON Home you could be be making closer to £150k from the same value of sales!
*30% is the average franchisee GP across the Rasion Home franchise network.
Sarah – our Edinburgh franchise owner who started her training with us at the very end of 2021, made over £220,000 of sales in 2022 – so that’s a pretty impressive first year in business! Worth noting too that Sarah came from a banking career and had never had her own business before or worked in KBB or interiors...
