Your role as the franchisee is to lead your showroom team, welcoming prospective customers and overseeing the operation of your business, including an active role in the sales and customer care of the business.

Founded in 1959 by Hubert Schmidt, the brand is now owned and operated by his granddaughters who have continued to uphold the strong ethos and culture, building on their family’s legacy. Where global brands of this size are often owned by corporations and VCs more interested in the financials, Schmidt is refreshingly human. Many of the 1,700+ employees at the 5 factories in Alsace plus 1 in Germany, view Schmidt as a job-for-life, ten/twenty/thirty-plus years!
For you and your employees this translates into industry-leading guidance, training and ongoing support. The profitability of your business is vital to ensure longevity and mutual ongoing success.
For example, there has been a drive to empower franchisees to grow their share of the high-margin interiors market, with HQ investing €50M+ in a new factory to satisfy increasing demand.
