The success of the Blazes Fireplace & Heating Centres Business has been its' franchisees' commitment to excellence in establishing themselves as Britain’s number one provider of fires, fireplaces and central heating.
A Blazes Fireplace & Heating Centres franchisee conducts his or her business from comfortable retail showroom premises displaying a comprehensive range of fires and fireplaces from Britain's leading manufacturers.
Training is essential to ensure a successful franchisee. In addition to the extensive initial training, Blazes' franchisees benefit from ongoing training tailored to specific requirements. Technical training is well within the scope of most individuals. Knowledge of fireplace installation and gas appliances is not necessary to operate a Blazes Fireplace and Heating franchise as installations are carried out by CORGI Sub Contractors. Full assistance is given in locating and vetting suitable Sub Contractors and training will be provided for them when necessary. The needs of each franchisee are carefully assessed and the training requirements tailored accordingly.
Blazes franchisees can rely upon hands on support and assistance from a specialised and experienced support team with expertise in all aspects of the business. A Blazes franchisee works hard for him or herself but not by him or herself.
