Refresh Renovations - Franchise Information
At Refresh Renovations we’re changing the way the world renovates. And that’s no small thing. We looked at the $350b renovation industry and thought that if it was a house, you’d demolish it and start again. So we did. We built a system that puts the customer at the centre, turns amateur hour into a professional industry and gives the right franchise owners the chance to build amazing businesses from the ground up.

The home renovation market has a massive problem - fragmentation and disorganisation. It is estimated that over 30% of projects end in a dispute because of this.
Our process is designed to reduce the common pitfalls in renovations such as budget-blowouts and timeline delays. We have engineered a very powerful model that combines a fully integrated software system, enabling Refresh franchisees to deliver the best customer experience and solve a massive problem for both homeowners and contractors.
Research by Harvard University’s Joint Centre for Housing Studies in 2014 also shows that Refresh’s process is proven by their study.
Harvard research concludes: “Building a trusted and recognisable brand on a national scale for which consumers would pay a premium, such as with franchising or strategic alliances, would likely transcend many of the other obstacles to scaling in the home renovation industry.”
You can achieve business success by improving the customer experience through communication as you offer one point of contact throughout the whole renovation process.

Harvard also says: “..strong leadership and business acumen are the most important factors for successfully scaling in this industry”
Our franchise owners have management skills, they come from a variety of career backgrounds, many of which have nothing to do with home renovations. Some have backgrounds in IT Sales, real estate, engineering, pharmaceutical, banking and management.
You’ll be business-driven with a growth mindset and an interest in marketing and building a scalable business. Our most successful franchisees have strong relationship management skills and are great communicators that pride themselves on providing an exceptional customer experience.
We can provide you with training in this area, provided you have a few key skills and aspirations: Strong leadership skills, business-minded, ability to make customers feel important and supported, motivation to build a multi-million dollar business, sales and marketing abilities, enthusiasm and positivity, an interest in home renovations.

“I’ve replaced my salary now. I’ve got a lifestyle now. I’m building an asset - which you can’t do when you’re on a salary.” Jeff Clark, Refresh Renovations Wellington franchise owner & former IT whizz
“It was an opportunity for me to get into an exciting industry that I was interested in but didn’t have a huge amount of knowledge or experience in. I knew when buying a franchise that it would allow me to join this industry and get the experience and knowledge” Paul Cree, Melbourne franchise owner & former engineering consultant
“The support network from head office and other franchisees in the group add a lot of value to beginners like me.” Dave Georgetti, Auckland franchise owner & former business manager
We have been impressed with the professional and polished approach taken by the team at Traffic in their establishment and roll-out of the Refresh Renovation franchise operation. Traffic’s approach, and Refresh’s processes and systems appear to be second to none. They are certainly far more advanced than a number of other franchise systems that we have had contact with. Our view is that the team at Traffic and Refresh are proactive, innovative, well-organised, smart, professional and committed to excellence. As their lawyers, we have seen first hand how satisfied potential Refresh Renovations franchisees are in terms of the process of introduction to the system and subsequent conversion to franchisees. The roll-out of the Refresh franchise operation has been able to be brought to market extremely quickly without any compromise in quality. Opportunities will certainly come knocking to this franchised business, and we would recommend them, and Traffic, without hesitation. Scott Goodwin, Franchise Lawyer
Chris (Kuhr) was fabulous to work with. He communicates very well and keeps the customer informed every step of the way. He was always there to meet the subcontractors to make sure there were no glitches. He went the extra mile and did little things to make sure the job was perfect. Would definitely hire him again.
