About DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen

In 1987 Donald J. Dwyer Sr. purchased GNU Services Corp., a company that offered bathtub refinishing, repair and replacement. The company changed its name to Worldwide Refinishing Systems one year later and began doing full bathroom and kitchen remodeling. Then, under the direction of Dwyer's son Doug, the name changed to DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen by Worldwide.

DreamMaker franchisees offer their clients a variety of remodeling options for bathrooms and kitchens, including cabinet refacing or refinishing; tub reglazing; tile, flooring and fixture replacement; and painting.
