Dollar Curtains + Blinds
Dollar Curtains + Blinds is the market leading company specialising in window coverings for new and existing home owners and the rental market. Focusing on craftsmanship and quality has ensured their longevity for more than 50 years.
They recognise that window coverings for a new or existing home are an investment purchase, and therefore their customers need to seek out an expert in their field to advise on the design, colour and most appropriate solution for their windows. Dollar Curtains + Blinds are that expert.
The business continually strives to offer a diverse but succinct range of curtain, blind, shutter and awning products that show a level of intelligence and innovation. Market-leading materials, manufacturing processes and quality control systems feature just as highly as design.
DC+B’s commitment and desire to be successful has kept their business at the forefront for over 50 years. This longevity means they are very familiar to generations of families, who know they can trust DC+B to produce a quality product at a value-for-money price.
Key to Dollar Curtains + Blinds success are their franchise programs. Franchises have been a part of the DC+B family since the business was established in 1967. Many DC+B franchises have been operating for over 30 years and have been vital to DC+B’s evolution as a company.
"Franchises have been a part of the DC+B family since the business was established in 1967."
DC+B is a vertically integrated business, both manufacturing and retailing indoor and outdoor window coverings. Therefore, along with the benefits of being a part of a national market-leading brand, DC+B offers franchises their range of exclusive and innovative product ranges and fabrics.
Franchisees are supported with localised and national marketing programs which include the DC+B website, social media, search engine optimisation (SEO) and digital marketing, and the management of review platforms. This is in conjunction with the management of all other advertising channels and marketing collateral from magazines to samples and displays.
"Franchisees are supported with localised and national marketing programs."
DCB’s franchise success stories come from being able to reap the benefits of their exclusive in-house window covering software. The software is an innovative, market-leading tool for taking on-site measurements, creating on-site accurate quotations, invoices and orders for window coverings. It allows you to manage your appointments, add in your measurements and photos, generate quotes and invoices with the touch of a button in your customer’s homes and generate and track your orders, all in the one system.
As valued Intellectual Property of DC+B, the software is used only by DC+B retail stores and is one of the many competitive advantages of being a DC+B franchise. The ability to use this software, along with DC+B’s extensive training programs, ensures that no previous window coverings experience is required for new franchisees.
"Access to DC+B software and extensive training programs ensures that no previous experience is required for new franchisees."
The DC+B franchise business model also reaps the benefits of low working capital, as all products are made to measure with no inventory holding required. This makes the initial investment very affordable. Furthermore, as all custom-made orders require deposits, this provides excellent cash flow.
With a network of 35 stores throughout Australia, Dollar Curtains + Blinds are looking to expand on their strong retail network with new franchise locations.
