Values & History
Creating beautiful kitchens where our customers will be inspired to spend quality time with their friends and family is what EatGatherLove is all about. We believe the kitchen is the "heart of the home" and should be treated as such. Founded in 2000, the company brings nearly 20 years of experience to bear for customers who will be motivated to cook at home more often and entertain guests more frequently as a result. The EatGatherLove brand was born out of the Dream Doors franchise system in New Zealand, and now has over 110 unique locations in operation throughout New Zealand, with franchise opportunities now available throughout the US. The home office is located in San Diego.
With the US home remodeling market reaching a total revenue value of well over $85 billion in 2019, growing over 8% annually through the previous five-year period, the industry continues to look sharp as projected growth continues to climb. A decline in unemployment coupled with increased economic recovery has led to a boom in per capita disposable income levels for Americans, and favorable mortgage rates and rising home prices are expected to bring an active housing construction market to the forefront in years to come.
Training & Support
Our intensive training course takes place at the EatGatherLove training facility and covers everything you'll need to know to begin providing the best service your clients have ever experience from the moment you open the doors on your new business. Onsite training and support at your location will be provided through the initial phases of business operation to ensure you're knowledgeable and confident, and continuous support through coaching, phone support, and on-site visits are always available. Franchise owners will also have access to comprehensive operations manuals and complete marketing and advertising support throughout the life of their agreement.
Ideal Candidate & Qualifications
EatGatherLove franchisees will typically excel based on sales experience, a keen eye for detail, sociability, and strong leadership skills.
