We are unique to other remodeling franchise opportunities as we offer kitchen, bath and interior design/build remodeling services instead of specializing in one of these. Our business model supports all types of interior remodeling targeting the more affluent homeowner.

To ensure this proper fit, we will engage in a 7-Step Mutual Evaluation Process. During this process, we take multiple opportunities to get to know you and your goals, both personally and professionally. This is also the time for you to get to know who we are and what we stand for. We work hard to make sure that we answer all of your questions so you can determine if DreamMaker could help you achieve the goals you have for your life and business, while learning if you’ll be a good fit for our culture and systems. Great Partnerships are a blessing, and these are the seven things we look for when we evaluate a potential DreamMaker owner: drive, heart, focus, coachability, willingness to follow systems, values and support at home.
We got our start back in 1975. The kitchen remodeling franchise company’s roots can be traced back to the 1970s when GNU Corporation developed a system to put a beautiful new hard-surface topcoat on porcelain bathtubs and sinks. Since 1988, under the name Worldwide Refinishing Systems, Inc., our network continuously created a vast array of possibilities to turn kitchens and bathrooms into personal reflections of our DreamMaker consumers. Under the Dwyer Group umbrella, the company grew nationally as Worldwide Refinishing Systems, Inc. and became a recognized leader in our trade. In 1999, we were rechristened DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen by Worldwide. This new title captures the mission that we offer full-service bath, kitchen, and full-interior remodeling services.
When DreamMaker President and Chief Stewardship Officer (CSO) Doug Dwyer purchased the company in 2003, the dream continued as the company vastly expanded its services, moving beyond resurfacing and refinishing to become a full-service interior remodeling company focused on enhancing lives and improving homes. His leadership earned the company Remodeler of the Year by Pro Remodeler Magazine in 2004 making DreamMaker a name to remember in the remodeling industry. DreamMaker has since been ranked in the top 10 Remodelers in the Nation by Qualified Remodeler's Top 500, Franchise Gator Top 100 Franchise, Entrepreneur Top 500 Franchise and Franchise Business Review Top 50 Franchise.

"This is a very complex business. My recommendation is do it with DreamMaker or don't do it at all." Lee Willwerth, Ann Arbor, MI
"To have several weeks’ vacation every year – it’s definitely afforded us the quality of life that we were looking for." Brenda Willwerth, Ann Arbor, MI
"The systems are good and they’re there, and if you have the diligence and the work to apply those systems, they’re excellent." Eric Anderson, Swainsboro, GA
"When I got in, I felt pretty comfortable with [financial statements and info], but when I got in to DreamMaker and went through training, it went to a whole different level." Curt Trampe, Springfield, IL
"It is a family. Like a family, everybody looks out for each other, there’s a real spirit of comradery, these are your team members." Glen Borkowski, Orland Park, IL
"The structure that was promised has definitely been delivered, even more so." Leesa Anderson, Swainsboro, GA
"It is a business based on biblical principles. You start to see the heart of Doug (Dwyer, DreamMaker president) and see that he is different. For him, it’s not about money, per se. No question, he is a hard negotiator trying to make a profit, but not at the expense of others. He has integrity. The other thing I appreciate is the strength of the other franchisees. You just see really, really good people morally who are doing their best and working to get better, and who are willing to share ideas and help you out. It’s a real family atmosphere. From a business standpoint, if you are willing to plug in, that means that instead of coming up with 10 marketing schemes, I can talk to two or three guys and find out what has worked for them and what they would do differently if they had a chance to start over. That sharing, to me, is the strength of the whole organization." Steve Betts, Lubbock and Amarillo, TX
