Benefits 

All franchises have “training”. We offer continuous learning as part of our training programs. To start, we have a 45 day pre-training followed by 2 weeks of classroom intensive training. The training includes Sales & Marketing, Design, Products, and how to run an effective and efficient business. Once the intensive training is complete, you are in business and start your Continuing Ed. That begins with 12 modules of training that go even deeper into product knowledge, marketing & business profitability. We have local and national field mentors to assist our franchisees. We have local and long distance training which includes company-wide conference calls, webinars, factory tours, workshops, one-on-one coaching as well as an intranet system that it filled with information covering all aspects of our business.

Our system also includes a one-stop marketing hub where our franchisees can quickly put together any advertising pieces using a few mouse clicks. Here, they can also edit or revise individual website or business Facebook account (both come with the franchise). We actually post updates to our franchisees’ Facebook accounts so they don’t have to take the time to keep it current and fresh. This hub also allows our franchisees market to mailing lists and to control their Pay-Per-Click advertising as well.

Testimonials

Jan Bromberek

“I love the flexibility of being able to create my own hours as well as my own income. The control is very important to me as I am the sole income for my family."

Jerome and Catherine Pulcine

“Decorating Den Interiors is the perfect fit for us. DDI has cemented great relationships with suppliers that we could never have gotten on our own. Most suppliers, especially furniture manufacturers, would never deal with one decorator/owner, but bring them hundreds and now they listen. The support from head office is second to none. Everyone wants to help, their people are wonderful. These are things you could never put a value on. Without question we have made the right decision joining Decorating Den Interiors - a decision we wished we would have made 15 years earlier.”

“I love being my own boss. I have the freedom to make this business as big or small as I want. Since starting my business, I’ve raised children and enjoyed the flexibility of spending more time with them. I devoted more time to the business as they grew older.
