Business is booming at Schmidt Norwich – despite the pandemic and a series of lockdowns. Franchisee Scott Hardy: “We’ve learned some things from this that might be useful after the pandemic.”
Local business, global brand
IN THE UK
Enjoy the best of both worlds with Schmidt: run a business serving your local community, while enjoying the support and stature of a truly international brand behind you.
That includes cutting-edge technology, such as your in-store VR software which will bring your customers’ interior visions to life in minutes, based on their own home. It’s the closest thing they can get to ‘try before you buy’ in this industry!
Continuous innovation and developments that have a real impact on your bottom line are just the beginning of what you can expect from your franchise investment with Schmidt.
Supporting your business success
We’re serious about support – starting with a seven-week intensive training program covering every aspect of launching and growing your business, and continuing with in-store training for you and your team.
We partner with a professional property search and negotiation company, and have an expert team of designers who know how to fit-out your showroom to maximise your income.
With Schmidt, you’ll always have the answer to any challenges, big or small.

Join a leading brand with a unique and successful business model
Founded in 1959 by Hubert Schmidt, Schmidt Groupe today is the undisputed leader in made-to-measure home interiors in France – and the fifth-largest interiors manufacturer in Europe.
We’re proud to still be a family-owned and run business, with Hubert’s grandchildren now heading up the company. That means we have no shareholders to answer to, leaving us free to focus on what matters most: our franchisees.
We invest in state-of-the-art industrial equipment for made-to-measure production, and our skilled engineers have built high-tech factories that allow us to supply entirely customised high-quality interior solutions, at a very attractive price and with minimal delay.
These are just some of the reasons why we’re confident of reaching 100 showrooms in the UK in the next few years.
Could one of them be yours?
