If you love working with others, have an interest in the home improvement market and the ambition to grow your own successful business, we can provide the tools and knowledge to help you become part of our successful kitchen and interior solutions franchise.

It’s your personality that matters more than your CV in making your showroom the local market leader. Our leading franchisees share certain characteristics:

  • Passion for decor and design 
  • Good communication skills 
  • Hands-on approach, leading a team from the front 
  • Customer-focused and comfortable with high-value transactions 
  • Organised 
  • Ambitious and committed – personally and financially

For those with the ambition, commitment and talent to make it work, owning a Schmidt showroom is the perfect way to open a retail kitchen business with all the expertise and support of a brand leader.


You need no prior kitchen or design experience – the vast majority of our franchisees didn’t have any before starting, and are now proud experts in interiors thanks to our training and support.

Owning your own franchise can be very rewarding both financially and emotionally. We understand that it’s also a big commitment: we’ve already helped over 400 people to start their own business, so you’re investing in a highly proven business model.
