Apollo Blinds: Be a part of the UK’s largest window blinds franchise
We understand how critical it is to get your business off to a flying start, which is why we have developed and refined a structured programme of training and support so that you can learn the ‘Apollo way’ of running a successful franchise business.
While there is a clear process, we have incorporated lots of flexibility to accommodate a range of people joining our network. Some people who have joined us had very strong sales skills but little practical experience, so there was particular emphasis on teaching and reinforcing product information and installation skills.
Likewise, we have some very skilled craftspeople, so their training placed more emphasis on business and sales skills.
