Home improvement franchise Granite Transformations saw its UK sales rise by 10% during 2013, with December sales up 16%. It has also started 2014, with January sales up by 18% on the previous month.
UK Chief Operating Officer, Danny Hanlon said: “We are riding the crest of a wave right now.There have been plenty of great sales results in January and I can’t even recall a time where our franchisees have had so many enquiries coming through.
“Our franchise owners are taking on new staff and we are currently designing seven new showrooms, some in retail parks and others in garden centres. I foresee huge growth for the brand.”
The franchise’s core product offering is its ‘top that fits on top’ agglomerate material, which fits over existing worktops and tiled surfaces.
However the company has recently introduced the Porcelain collection. Granite Transformations has also announced closer retail ties with its parent company, the Italian-based Trend Group, which will see a greater presence of Trend designer glass mosaics in franchisee showrooms.
The UK operation has also enhanced its franchisee support over the past twelve months, with an overhaul of its consumer website, master catalogue, library of sales leaflets and central call centre operation.
