Full Description

The company was initially launched in the USA as a family business in 1999 but then the owners returned home to the UK in 2005 and continued the business here. The franchise was launched in 2007 and has been successfully franchising since then and now with 38 franchisees currently operating across the UK and Ireland, with additional offices operating in the USA and Dubai.

In the commercial/business sector alone, the average overall spend on Christmas decorating in 2016 was in excess of £200 million and growth is set to continue. Over the years, The Christmas Decorators’ client list has grown to include some of the UK’s top hotel brands, restaurants, prestigious venues, blue chip corporations, large retail outlets and local authorities, as well as some of the most stunning private residences in the country.

The Christmas Decorators

The Christmas Decorators franchise offers a totally unique opportunity to join an expanding business, providing commercial and residential property owners with a design and installation service of both indoor and outdoor Christmas lights, decorations and festive displays. It is the only business of its kind in the UK and has been operating successfully now for over ten years. There are virtually no competitors and the service is unique for the residential clients with whom we forge great relationships. Whilst there is competition in the commercial marketplace, we have gained a great reputation over the years which reflects in our varied list of clients, ranging from large blue corporations, along with high streets and shopping centres, to the hospitality industry and private homes.

In the residential market, our clients greatly appreciate being able to employ someone else to decorate their property and no hard sell is required! Just think, 15 years ago only higher net worth households would have the luxury of a cleaner or a gardener. Now it’s commonplace. We have made our service just as accessible.

The business has grown year on year with our services constantly in high demand.

What about you:

  • Do you have a passion for Christmas?
  • Do you have a flair for design or an eye for what looks good?
  • Do you possess some business acumen?
  • Are you driven and motivated with good communication skills and a determination to succeed?
  • Are you well organised, polite and well presented with a customer focus?
  • Can you follow a system and participate?
  • Are you fun to be/work with, but not scared of working long/hard hours in the Christmas season?
  • Do you want to run a business where Christmas is talked about all year round?
  • Do you want to earn a living making properties both residential and commercial look amazing for Christmas?
  • Can you work alongside like-minded people?

The Christmas Decorators franchise offers a unique opportunity to join this expanding business!

This business is particularly attractive and rewarding because 95 per cent of clients return year after year. After all, Christmas comes every year and so, as long as you keep your customers happy, you have the opportunity to keep them forever. Whilst the majority, of your income will be earned over the three-month festive period, this is an all-year-round business offering the prospect of increasing kerb appeal with lighting for the licensed trade industry, as well as at indoor and outdoor events, parties and weddings.

Franchisees become Christmas designers and installers to turn properties, both commercial and residential into amazing Christmas wonderlands. They also decorate a whole range of commercial properties such as hotels, restaurants and bars as well as shopping centres, arcades and high streets. Elegant exterior lighting is created to suit each individual property to complement both style and surroundings. Inside, an array of bespoke Christmas displays, Christmas tree designs, and handcrafted Christmas garlands and wreaths, all complement any lounge, fireplace or hallway. There is something to suit all budgets.

Training and Support

Comprehensive training consists of five full classroom days at head office and a further 4 days practical training on site; we provide additional ongoing training all year round. We believe we can teach just about anyone how to do what we do, so long as he/she has an eye for what looks attractive and tasteful. We provide support by way of ongoing training and conferences, help and support from our office based management team, access to our own manufactured decorations along with sales and marketing support.

The Christmas Decorators business – marketing, stocking, preparation and interior design – can be run from home, avoiding expensive overheads.

What We Are Looking For

  • This franchise is a management franchise requiring the ability to market products and services throughout the year
  • You will need to be able to manage and grow your own installation team
  • You need to be passionate about Christmas
  • You need to be forthright and honest and never over promise and under deliver
  • You need to be enthusiastic, hard working and organised
  • You need to be a good communicator and be able to talk to clients of all levels.

  • You need to pay attention to detail and always strive to achieve that “WOW” factor with that extra effort
  • Whilst our business is predominantly about Christmas time and effort are required throughout the year so we need people who can afford that time

This year we are looking to award a further 10 licences
