Description of franchise system
The value of quality manufacturing
Oakleaf was launched in 1969 as a family-owned manufacturing business that produces a huge range of premium quality period moldings for decorative purposes. We have recognized the significance of providing consumers in all parts of the UK with an easy way to access our niche services and products, and in order to provide local, first-hand expertise, we launched our franchise program .
In 2009, we introduced a more substantial and renewed opportunity, that incorporated significantly larger territories, and equipped our franchisees with an enhanced tool kit, that included our new mobile showrooms to push both sales and marketing. The quality and variety of our quality products is second to none. Our product range includes a huge variety of different, decorative mouldings for every taste.
Our most popular pieces are quality reproductions of oak beams and fine replicas of antique paneling, all of them hand-made and finished in our original Yorkshire factory. So that customers understand the authenticity and quality of our premium products, we allow our customers all over the United Kingdom to inspect and discuss samples and designs in the relaxed atmosphere of their homes. This is one of the many services offered by our franchisees .
An invaluable opportunity
Becoming an Oakleaf's franchisee with your own, exclusive franchise territory , is the perfect opportunity for you if you've been seeking a distinctive opportunity to build a profitable, successful, and most importantly, enjoyable business. If you're a self-motivated person with the necessary funds, then an Oakleaf business could be the ideal opportunity for you!
To complement our established manufacturing mastery, our
franchisees work as sales and marketing representatives
within their territory, adding a special
personal and local touch to each enquiry, including design, sampling,
organization and supply of installations.
Our successful business concept has been constantly evolving since the very first day of operation, and the experience we've made since has revealed the importance of continuous and good promotion of our brand on a local level, because this is what generates the awareness which is so crucial to good sales. We'll provide you with all the training, promotion ‘tools’, marketing ideas, and sales initiatives, but it's crucial that you bring the enthusiasm, energy, and the ability effectively within your local area, and by this develop your Oakleaf's business .
Franchise partner profile
A true family business
Our franchise opportunity is of particular interest to families and husband-wife teams, who want to work together and set up a valuable family business, with the key roles in business being shared based on individual skills.

Oakleaf is seeking individuals who share our passion for the application and quality of our products, people who can measure up to our effort and enthusiasm, and who are ready and willing to back their decision with the personal commitment and resources required.
