Affordable Makeovers

Sleek, stylish and unashamedly luxurious, there’s nothing quite like diamond-polished work surfaces and handsome cabinet doors to add the finishing touches to a beautiful kitchen. For too long, granite, quartz and glass worktops have been affordable by the fortunate few, often as part of a costly new fitted kitchen, but now Granite Transformations brings these and other luxury fittings within everyone’s reach.

Thanks to the unique ‘top that fits on top’ concept, our slimline granite, quartz and eco-friendly replacement glass materials can be fitted directly over existing worktops and other surfaces, to transform the look and provide instant and affordable makeovers. Nor is our brand offering limited to worktops, since we also specialise in made-to-measure replacement door and drawer fronts, Italian glass mosaic splashbacks and feature panels, and hard flooring tiles and click-together planks.

Although the Granite Transformations success story started in the kitchen, it’s also finishing up in the bathroom, shower cubicle, utility room, barbecue area, even recreational vehicles, in the form of handsome, hardwearing decorative interior finishes. There’s tremendous scope in the commercial sector too, so the possibilities are endless.

Granite Transformations

Worldwide Franchise

Established in 1996, Granite Transformations has grown into a worldwide home improvements franchise, with operations in Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, USA, Canada, Europe and the UK. It’s now owned by the international Trend Group, renowned for the design and manufacture of glass mosaic tiles and high tech agglomerate surfaces, which supplies all the core Granite Transformations products, ensures a continually expanding range of materials, colours and designs, and channels major investment into the franchise network, ensuring a future-proof investment opportunity.

Operating in Britain and Ireland since 2003, we are continually expanding our network of franchised showrooms and associated fabrication workshops, to secure our position as the foremost home transformations brand. Thus we are actively seeking go-ahead franchise investors to help us grow the network further, generate kitchen and bathroom makeover business within their exclusive sales territories, and maintain the quality and customer service standards already established for Granite Transformations.

Franchise BusinessGranite Transformations - e-shot Nov12_4

Typically, our franchise owners operate a combined retail and workshop business, whereby they convert sales in their own exclusive territories, measure and fabricate key fittings like worktops, then carry out the home installations themselves, usually in just one day.

Fabrication adds another revenue stream for our franchisees and the workshop provides a perfect place for assembling and storing contract materials; while templated worktops, made-to-measure doors and mosaics on a mattress can be mostly fitted in a single day, cutting job times. Our customers also appreciate that installations are carried out without demolition, dust and debris, at highly competitive prices.

As you can see, a Granite Transformations franchise is not for the faint-hearted. It demands hard work, dedication, an eye for quality and a good team of people around you. You don’t need previous practical or market experience though, because we’ll provide all the necessary technical, sales and operational training and support you’ll need, from day one.

Package Options

Depending on your proposed investment and existing resources, there are three different Granite Transformations franchise packages, including one for existing kitchen and bathroom retailers, a low-cost point of entry based around a garden centre concession, and a premium model featuring bricks-and-mortar premises.

Our premium package is based around high street or trading estate retail premises and a nearby fabrication unit, with the equivalent of two exclusive franchise territories.

  • Franchise fee £42,000
  • Franchise territory 200,000 households
