This state-of-the-art venue marks a significant milestone for the business, showcasing Shuttercraft’s ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation not just within the industry, but also in developing their world-class offering to franchisees.
Providing franchisees with valuable hands-on experience
The new Shuttercraft Training & Conference Centre is a bright and open space, which has been meticulously designed to deliver maximum benefit to franchisees at all stages in their journey with the business.
Primarily it serves as an interactive space to display Shuttercraft’s extensive range of products, including their premium collection of six different shutter types and 11 styles of blinds. This immersive training experience enables franchisees to see, touch, and explore the installation and build structure of each product, alongside the head office’s specialist product team.
This hands-on approach enables franchisees to develop a comprehensive understanding of Shuttercraft’s entire range, covering everything from standard installations to motorisation techniques, which they can then take back to their business to aid the sales process.
A vibrant hub to bring franchisees together
In addition to its training facilities, the building will also function as a Conference Centre for the Shuttercraft franchise network. This means it will host a wide range of events especially curated to improve the franchisee experience, including their always eagerly anticipated annual Success & Strategy Day.
This commitment to fostering a collaborative environment within the franchise network is a testament to Shuttercraft’s tireless work to support their franchisees’ success. Ultimately, the new Training & Conference Centre provides a modern and professional space for franchisees to come together, exchange ideas, and discuss strategies that will have tangible benefits on their business’ growth. This empowers their network to push their businesses forward and thrive in an ever-evolving market.
Shuttercraft has always been at the forefront of the home improvement franchise sector, and this latest development is an inspirational illustration of their dedication to keeping franchisees at the cutting edge.
Driving franchisees forward in a fast-growing sector
Indeed, Shuttercraft’s continuous pursuit of excellence has been recognised through numerous industry awards. Shuttercraft has been honoured in every category they value as important to them, including awards in business transformation, product quality, and franchisee training.
Most notably, Shuttercraft were named one of Elite Franchise’s Top 100 Franchises in 2023. This recognition further highlights how they have gone above and beyond at every opportunity to provide franchisees with an exceptional holistic franchise experience, encompassing premium products and world-class training and support.
The opening of the Shuttercraft Training & Conference Centre comes at a hugely exciting time of immense growth in the domestic window covering market. With the market worth £1.5bn in 2019, the industry has experienced consistent expansion over the past four years.
Affordability has played a significant role in driving this growth, and evidence suggests that the market has yet to reach its peak. As window coverings become more accessible to a wider audience, the demand for high-quality products and expert installation services continues to rise – much to Shuttercraft franchisees’ benefit.
It means the opening of the revolutionary Shuttercraft Training & Conference Centre couldn’t have come at a better time. This remarkable facility will not only enhance their offering to current and future franchisees, but also serve as an industry-leading hub for knowledge sharing, collaboration, and innovation.
