From crisis to opportunity: bouncing back from redundancy

From crisis to opportunity: bouncing back from redundancy

Losing our jobs through no fault of our own is a nightmare scenario but what feels like the end may be just the beginning. Choosing to join a franchise like Granite & TREND Transformations could help you to turn disaster into the business opportunity of a lifetime.

This last year has hit businesses really hard. With a few notable exceptions, like the construction industry and home improvement sector, almost every company in the UK has been negatively affected by the pandemic and the resulting restrictions.

Unfortunately, this has meant the UK workforce has suffered a record number of redundancies in the last year (source: BBC), with 370k in the third quarter of 2020 alone (source: Independent).

So, if you have found yourself being made redundant recently, you are far from alone. However, the good news is that there is a way forward. Franchising has always been a fantastic option for those looking to turn crisis into opportunity and there has never been a better time to be part of Granite & TREND Transformations.

Of course, you are not reading this article by chance. It will be because you already have an interest in franchising and how it can provide you with a more secure future. So, it is likely that you are also someone who has a great deal of drive and ambition and has come from a job that required a considerable amount of experience and expertise. Focusing on your strengths and investing your severance package into your own business might help you build an even better future.   

With an investment in the right business opportunity, it could be your ticket to a much more fulfilling and rewarding career. One where you are your own boss and one where you can reap all the benefits of your hard work.

Franchising – a secure business opportunity for the future

It is a sad fact that most new businesses fail. According to NatWest and the British Franchising Association, the number of new businesses that go under within three years is a staggering half to two-thirds (source). Compared to a 10% failure rate for franchisees, the difference is obvious, joining a franchise brand massively reduces the risk of failure compared to going it alone.

By investing in a long-established and successful franchise like Granite & TREND Transformations, you can benefit from a tried and tested business model with a proven track record of success. With more than 60 franchise-owned showrooms in the UK and 10 more planned to open in 2021, we have perfected every aspect of our franchise package to maximise your chances of success.

Are you ready to take the leap?

Perhaps you have already thought about being your own boss and starting your own business one day. This might not be the perfect timing you were hoping for but sometimes the right time chooses you, not the other way around. It’s not always easy, which is why the Granite & TREND Transformations franchise really stands out from the crowd. Not only are we market leaders in a booming industry but our world-class training and dedication to ongoing support means our franchise brand  is one that is built around your success.

You do not even need to have any experience in the kitchen and bathroom renovation industry to benefit from your own franchise – though that would be a huge advantage of course. The biggest assets you need to have are dedication, commitment and a will to succeed. We will take care of everything else.

As one of our franchise partners, you will benefit from trading under our globally recognised brand and have exclusive access to all our incredible products and cutting-edge manufacturing and installation techniques.

However, our franchise opportunity is about so much than logos, stock and training. You will also become part of our wider network of partners and continue to receive ongoing sales, marketing and operational support from our expert team throughout the term of your partnership. You can expect regular training programmes, networking opportunities and informational webinars, as well as being part of an extensive national marketing campaign across multiple channels.

It really is the full package and an unmissable opportunity for people like you who are looking for a stable, successful and rewarding way to take back control of their career after a redundancy. With a Granite & TREND Transformation franchise, you might be working for yourself but you will never be by yourself. After all, your success is our success!
