It is common knowledge that renovation projects tend to take more time and money than homeowners originally plan for. A lot of this comes down to poor planning and project management, as well as too much organisation being left to the homeowner. When the directors of Traffic looked into what was really going on in the the renovation sector they saw a gap for a franchise. As a result one of the best franchises in New Zealand launched: Refresh Renovations.
Traffic, which has been running since 2003, promotes growth and resources within business. Its client base originally included brands such as Mercury Energy, Dulux and Fletcher Building. In 2010, the team behind Traffic began using their expertise to create and grow their own brand: Refresh Renovations - an international franchise which has now completed over 1,000 renovations worldwide. Their secret? They follow a unique process which focuses on giving customers their renovations on time and on budget.
Refresh Renovations uses a top-down approach to ensure customers don’t waste their time and money. This approach includes five steps:
1) An initial consultation between specialist and client
2) Looking at concept feasibility
3) Detailed planning and working drawings
5) Project completion
Franchisees provide clients with one point of contact through every stage of the renovation and clients can keep track of their project online. If you are interested in buying a franchise, Refresh is a great option.
