DOTI Design Stores provide a unique opportunity to own a business that taps an industry that has reached $200 Billion annually, providing quality home furnishings and interior design services to an affluent clientele. Beautiful showrooms, professional staff and a huge selection of merchandise from around the world attract our customers. Our Owners enjoy a support and training program unsurpassed in the home furnishings industry, along with the pride that comes with providing their store's clients with solutions to their design and furnishings needs.
What Sets Us Apart
DOTI Design Consultants are highly trained to provide uncompromised service either in the showroom or at a client's home. From complete homes to small projects, our professionals can provide space planning, fabric & color choices, and the selection of quality home furnishings, window fashions, lighting, artwork and accessories. From the first meeting to the completion of the project, our Design Consultants ensure a quality experience.
Why A DOTI Franchise?
Unlimited opportunity and independence are the cornerstones of DOTI ownership. Depending on where you live, such opportunities may be available for single or multiple locations. Our Design Stores are tailored to your market, not the cookie cutter approach adopted by many companies today. DOTI attracts the most motivated entrepreneurs within a franchise market, because it is the people that make the DOTI team the emerging leader in upscale home furnishings across the country.
DOTI will be opening Design Stores in major markets where we can identify people that demonstrate:
- Strong people management and team building skills
- Marketing aptitude
- Passion for excellence and success
Experience in the home furnishings industry is NOT necessary. Owners build their business through the hiring and management of talented professionals, utilizing our proven systems and extensive training.
There is no limit to what you can accomplish with DOTI. We have worked hard to design a system that will enable you to focus on execution, rather than consistently "reinventing the wheel."
