From a Southbourne spare room to 13 franchises and 125 towns and cities across the UK!
Just Shutters celebrate 10 years at the top of their field! Grown from humble beginnings, husband and wife team Chris and Helen Rocker began the Southbourne based company from their spare room on Carbery Avenue in 2006. The idea was simple; to provide the best possible shutters, expert advice and installation, together with outstanding customer service. It is these three qualities that have been at the heart of the company as it has flourished and grown, now with 13 franchises and covering 125 towns and cities throughout the UK.
Chris Rocker, Director says; “it is not often in life you can create something with a ten year plan and are able to look back over that decade with such a sense of pride knowing you have achieved those goals and more. We are where we are through hard work, the right people and a passion for great service. We may have grown a great deal but our foundations have remained and I am pleased to say it is this which has earned our reputation and the love of our customers.”
Helen Rocker, Director, adds; “we are delighted to be celebrating this company milestone with our staff and franchisees, I am very proud of our dedicated team and what we have all achieved over the past decade.”
A real local success story, Just Shutters weathered the financial crisis of 2008 and double dip recession through to 2013, in fact enjoying year-on-year growth throughout this time. The company has also seen huge changes in the digital world with both it’s systems and marketing being poles apart from where it began.
Marketing Manager, Charlotte Fantelli says; “It is a huge pleasure and privilege to be part of Just Shutters, I remember my first meeting with Chris over ten years ago discussing logos and colours, we have since then seen huge changes in the digital world and our marketing, but the one thing I can say with total honesty, is working with a company that delivers the promises we market is a breath of fresh air and the reason for our long term success.”
The future is looking bright too, with seven franchisees taken on in just one year, the business sees no signs of slowing, plans to continue the national growth are in full swing, Business Manager Simon Osterloh tells us what we can expect from Just Shutters over the next decade; “Just Shutters core ingredients are just right, we have a model that is perfect to replicate and an exceptional package for our franchisees, this enables us to attract great people and help new areas get off the ground extremely quickly! I am certain the future will see a Just Shutters in every region of the UK.”
