Founded by Karen Powell in 1994 and franchised in 1998, Decor&You has quickly grown from a local design firm in Connecticut to a credible and established franchise system with an elite group of trained professionals operating as local décor authorities and home improvement specialists.
The best part of owning a Decor&You franchise is the low overhead: while most franchises require inventory, a brick-and-mortar location and a team of trained staff, franchising with Decor&You lets you avoid all that.
What makes you valuable is solely your skills. And with Decor&You's personalized coaching, as well as access to our wholesale catalogs to help you fulfill any type of order imaginable, you'll quickly become the professional, sought-after designer in just a few months.
Defining Success With The I.L.W.E. Model
I.L.W.E. is how we define the success of your franchise, and we've taken special care to ensure your future goals are met. It stands for:
Income: Your short-term earnings goals. Your training is designed to give you a flourishing, stable income right out of the gate.
Lifestyle: We built Decor&You to have freedom. There are no "regular hours" you have to keep. You work when it's convenient for you, and live the life you want.
Wealth: Long-term earning goals. We don't rely on fads or gimmicks in this industry. Instead, we give you the timeless tools to be successful for as long as you're willing to work, and generate a substantial legacy.
Equity: Your Decor&You franchise will be built for the long haul with you as the owner. As you gain experience and clients, you'll be able to build a lasting business and recruit a team of designers under you as you see fit. And when the time comes, you can transfer (sell) your business and reap the benefits!
What Our Franchisees Are Saying:
“Having no professional background in interior design, I would have been at a loss to start this business on my own from scratch. Decor&You provided everything I needed to get me up and going as fast as I could manage. Over time, D&Y's 360-degree education helped me adjust to changes in the marketplace and kept me abreast of trends and best practices so I could keep my business growing.
The greatest reward has always been the "WOW" of transforming homeowners' spaces. Karen and her Decor&You staff taught me now to do that properly!”
"Decor&You is exactly what I needed to transition from a corporate career to my own business. I had no prior formal training or experience, so it was huge for me to get help with business & vendor infrastructure, decorating & design training, and coaching & emotional support. The company's leadership and system continued to support me as I coached and built a diverse, and successful team of fabulous decorators.
Today, my teams offers turn-key, interior decorating and remodeling services and we’ve greatly grown our client base and our earning power. We continue to value the fundamentals of the Decor Plan System, which has set us up for continued success and grew our passion for helping clients realize their dreams."
"I have been a Decor & You franchisee since November 2006. After exploring many design franchises, I chose Decor & You because of their vision for the future and the fact that it was a women owned business. I have stayed for so long because of the support and expertise of both D & Y management and my fellow franchise owners. I love being my own boss, becoming even more involved with my community as an entrepreneur and seeing my clients cry tears of joy when I reveal their beautiful new space. No regrets!"
