Find out how we deliver franchise fit-out programmes on time, on budget, on brand

As a franchisor, you have many things to consider as you grow your business, from quality control and local regulatory compliance to protecting your brand’s image. For many franchises, the physical store or restaurant is the biggest customer touch point and a huge reflection of your company. Every location needs to be delivered consistently, to a high standard and in line with your brand guidelines. This is where we can help.

At DBSJ, we are proud to consistently create exceptional interiors for our customers, on time, on budget, and on brand. This promise, supported by our satellite offices across the UK, make us an ideal partner for franchises looking for a reliable fit-out specialist who can guarantee quality delivery and brand execution across their estate.

We work with companies such as IWG plc and Specsavers and their franchise partners nationally, working with the franchisee to understand how their business location needs to operate whilst having a deep understanding and appreciation of the franchisor’s brand guidelines, ensuring the quality, look and feel are upheld, no matter the location.

So, if you’re a franchisor looking for a supply chain partner to work with your franchisees to transform your property portfolio, then we are here to help you every step of the way:

Finding your property

Considering a few properties? We’ll survey the shortlisted sites, then advise you of any potential hidden costs, whilst building a renovation budget.

Applying the franchine’s design guidelines

The key to a successful franchise is brand consistency. We’re experts in applying design guidelines to a physical space, so we’ll transform your building to be on-brand.

Developing a fit-out programme and budget

We will develop a programme and budget that gets your doors open as soon as possible, ensuring long lead items are procured quickly.

The fit-out transformation

From mechanical and electrical alterations to partitions and joinery installations, our talented project team will ensure everything is delivered on time and budget.

Opening your doors: handover and aftercare

We’ll ensure everything is in full technical health and provide a complete operations and maintenance manual to ensure smooth running of your franchise business.

PLUS we’re always available if you have any questions and we’ll give you a 12-month review of your fit-out to ensure sustained quality.

“We recommend contractors and direct vendors to our franchise partners but the perception has always been that they are sceptical that we will not be providing the best price on the market. However, that is no longer the case with DBSJ. By getting DBSJ to price some of their projects and taking the franchise partners to see some of their work at Battersea and Gloucester Road, we’ve been able to prove that not only are you competitive but they can see for themselves that the quality of work with a potentially cheaper contractor would not even be half what they would get from DBSJ. Now our franchise partners have built trust with DBSJ and are using them without our involvement, recommending DBSJ to each other.”
