You have filled in our Registration Form and we have had an outline chat on the telephone during which an initial meeting was set.

We will ask you to bring to the table your business objectives. In return we will highlight set-up costs and a proposal of the rewards you can expect.
A Confidentiality Agreement that protects both parties will be signed at this juncture.
The Business Plan – Second Meeting
We are now working together, but have yet to make any financial commitment. Our joint task is to establish:
How you are going to set your company up?
How are you going to finance the business?
Registration of your business.
If bank loans are required we can of course help assemble cash flow projections and a detailed business plan.
Potential sites. Your location of showroom is critical and must fit into our pattern of distribution.
We are now ready to turn dreams into reality and we will ask at this point for a deposit, usually 10% thus £5,700.00 typically.
Location, Location, Location………
The key to any successful retail operation is the sighting of your showroom. Usually we seek 2-3,000 sq-ft on a major thoroughfare. Your local knowledge and our experience will ensure we get the right location, once located we can start planning display plans. We are now well on the way to launching an exciting Franchise Showroom and sharing in the reward of The Kitchen Depot brand.
The Fit Out
Having secured the correct premises our design expertise comes into its own. Each Kitchen Depot store has an open and welcome feel, we will provide you with a showroom that fulfills your ambitions.
You will be inducted into The Kitchen Depot Family once you have completed an intensive training schedule with our specially trained Franchise Manager. When you have completed your Training programme you will understand how to supply a kitchen right through from first pitch to completion of fit confirmation.
We have a well executed and time proven brand strategy that has been developed over many years and yet has never stood still. Whilst you are training we will be targeting your core market to ensure we are up and running come your launch.
