As a Franchise Partner you will be given thorough support to enable you to develop a profitable business with comprehensive training from the outset.

Initially learning the technicalities and skills needed to measure and fit the shutters you will quickly develop your business so that you can take on a management role and begin to grow your resources by employing a fitter or fitting team – as sales volumes increase, you may decide to move into a shop, move into a commercial unit or small office.
The Shuttercraft model has been built to enable you to start small, learn the ropes but very easily and swiftly move to running a management business.
We’ve been in the shutter industry since 2002 and are the longest-established and largest distributor of interior plantation shutters in the UK. That’s why we understand the market like nobody else.
The domestic window coverings market was estimated to be worth £1.52bn in 2019, which reflects strong and steady growth from 2015, with 13% overall growth 2015-19. Use of shutters within UK homes has grown in recent years, and there is evidence to suggest that the market has still not peaked as they continue to become more affordable.
As a company we have grown by 30% each year, so you can be part of a franchise network and a marketplace that is expanding.
We have a dedicated Product Development Manager with extensive industry experience. His sole responsibility is to find the products that are going to attract a new demographic of customers and bring them to market. At the moment, automation is a big trend, as well as energy saving ideas to retain heat and maximise sunlight. We’re working to stay at the forefront of developments to deliver the best products to our customers.
