WACO, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/07/14 -- What's it like to be a DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen franchisee? With the remodeling franchise in the midst of a national expansion, DreamMaker owners have been sharing their stories to help potential DreamMaker franchisees understand what life is like in the business.
You can read their stories in-depth in the blog section of www.dreammakerfranchise.com. Here are some excerpts:
"Well, (DreamMaker President) Doug Dwyer is an excellent leader. There are no smokescreens. They are what they say they are. We receive excellent business coaching, and they are continually looking at new ideas and improving systems. They work hard, and they have put us on the national map. They deserve a lot of credit. I don't think we'd ever have been part of the 'Remodeling' Big50 if not for us being part of that national network. It's a wonderful organization."
- Patty Gray, who owns DreamMaker of Bakersfield with her husband, Everett. The couple were named to the 2014 Remodeling Big50 list, which recognizes excellence in the remodeling industry.
"I still have the same CPA I used when I was a banker, and he asked me, 'If you were still at the bank, how much would you have made last year?' ... What I made last year? There's no way I would have made half of that doing what I was doing."
- Steve Betts, a former banker who owns two DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen locations in Texas.
"They are interested in your life, not just your royalty fee. At our annual Reunion, it's more than just about dollars and cents. Doug goes out of the way to make sure people's lives are improving and lifestyles are becoming better. There's a concern there, and you can see it."
- Ed Gribben, owner of DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen in Stuart, Florida. He expects his son and son-in-law to take over the family business.
DreamMaker's average same-store sales increased 23% in 2013. To understand the business model and culture that is driving growth, visit www.dreammakerfranchise.com.

Their processes run within isolated namespaces that abstract the operating environment independently of the distribution, versions, network setup, and other details of this environment.
