Dream Doors is one of the UK’s largest kitchen facelift retailers and Oxford Owners, Elaine and Mike Hurley celebrated the win of four awards at the Dream Doors Annual Conference held in Portsmouth.
Adding to their triple trophy haul from last year, the award winning Hurley’s remained ‘Franchisee of the Year’ and ‘Outstanding Monthly Performance’ award. For the second year running they also won the ‘Player’s Player’ because of their outstanding help and support to other Dream Doors franchise owners.
“We’re absolutely elated and still taking it all in,” says Mrs Hurley. “We went into the evening thinking we’d probably win two trophies, as all the showrooms’ sales can be seen on the Dream Doors intranet, but the others were a total shock. We won the ‘Player’s Player’ award last year, and didn’t think it was possible to win it again. It’s one that’s voted for by all the franchise owners and means a lot to Mike and I.”
After three visits to the stage, the couple were called up one last time to share the Checkatrade ‘Franchise of the Year’ award with fellow franchise owners, Mark and Amanda Edmans, from Dream Doors Chilterns.
“That’s nine awards in three years, so we’ve just commissioned a new trophy cabinet,” jokes Mr Hurley. “We’re proud of them all, but the Checkatrade award was out of the blue – it brought Elaine to tears. We’re delighted to be sharing the award with Mark and Amanda too. They’re a neighbouring franchise, and have become good friends of ours over the last couple of years. They really deserve the accolade.”
