At Refresh Renovations we’re changing the way the world renovates. And that’s no small thing. We looked at the $8.2b renovation industry and thought that if it was a house, you’d demolish it and start again.

So we did. We built a system that puts the customer at the centre, turns amateur hour into a professional industry and gives the right franchise owners the chance to build amazing businesses from the ground up.

The catch? They have to really want it. Sure, they need the right skill set, but attitude is front and centre. That’s why not everyone who looks at a Refresh Renovation franchise buys one. It’s also why not everyone who wants to buy one gets one. We’re changing the way the world renovates. And that starts with you.

The Industry

The home renovation market has a massive problem - fragmentation and disorganisation. It is estimated that over 30% of projects end in a dispute because of this.

Our process is designed to reduce the common pitfalls in renovations such as budget-blowouts and timeline delays. We have engineered a very powerful model that combines a fully integrated software system, enabling Refresh franchisees to deliver the best customer experience and solve a massive problem for both homeowners and contractors.

Research by Harvard University’s Joint Centre for Housing Studies in 2014 also shows that Refresh’s process is proven by their study.

Harvard research concludes: “Building a trusted and recognisable brand on a national scale for which consumers would pay a premium, such as with franchising or strategic alliances, would likely transcend many of the other obstacles to scaling in the home renovation industry.”

You can achieve business success by improving the customer experience through communication as you offer one point of contact throughout the whole renovation process.

Create a business you’ll be proud of

Harvard also says: “..strong leadership and business acumen are the most important factors for successfully scaling in this industry”

Our franchise owners are not builders, they come from a variety of career backgrounds, many of which have nothing to do with home renovations. Some have backgrounds in pharmacy, IT Sales, real estate, engineering, banking and management.

You’ll be business-driven with a growth mindset and an interest in marketing and building a scalable business. Our most successful franchisees have strong relationship management skills and are great communicators that pride themselves on providing an exceptional customer experience.

We can provide you with training in this area, provided you have a few key skills and aspirations: Strong leadership skills, business-minded, ability to make customers feel important and supported, motivation to build a multi-million dollar business, sales and marketing abilities, enthusiasm and positivity, an interest in home renovations.
