Having established our brand over a number of years it was considered that franchising was the best way to take our business and products forward to a worldwide audience.
We believe that franchising is the best way to deliver a quality, personalised service to consumers across the world and it is our franchise owners who take up the banner on our behalf.

Even those with extensive management experience appreciate the worth of a proven business model and established systems, provided by a mature franchise package.
In many ways, running a successful Granite Transformations franchise is all about winning: prevailing against local market rivals and winning new business.

Helen and David Thomas
Husband and wife team, Helen and David Thomas, had been working together in France for 10 years so when they decided to make the move back to the UK, they knew that their double act would continue in their new business.
Rebecca and John Willy
Rebecca and John Willy are a team and family is very important to them. In fact, they support family businesses in their community to promote and grow their Granite Transformations (GT) franchise. They tell us about their journey to choosing a GT franchise and their route to growth.
Over the 25 years of his employed life, Matthew Bird had developed a severe aversion to meetings. The Granite Transformations franchise has allowed him to develop his role within his business to something that works for him – less meetings and more greetings.
