EDUCATOR TURNED REMODELER NAMED ‘WOMAN OF THE YEAR’ BY NATIONAL FRANCHISE, DREAMMAKER BATH & KITCHEN
Denise Borkowski, who spent 30 years as a Burbank public school teacher, has been named “Woman of the Year” by the DreamMaker Bath and Kitchen remodeling franchise.
She and her husband Glen own the DreamMaker franchise in Orland Park, serving customers throughout suburban Chicagoland. Denise is a giver. She has worked with Habitat for Humanities and is currently
helping to remodel a local women’s crisis shelter, in addition to putting in 20-plus hours each week helping run the franchise. While many home remodeling companies – especially those serving upscale clients – have struggled in an increasingly competitive market, DreamMaker’s sales grew 23 percent in 2013, nearly seven times faster than the overall remodeling industry.
“What drew us to DreamMaker is its corporate philosophy, which emphasizes honesty and community service,” says Denise. “All franchise owners and staff operate within a ‘Code of Values.’ This means that we conduct our business completely above board. No bait and switch, no shortcuts. We help our customers decide what is best for them, and that includes determining if we are a good fit for them and they for us — it’s not just about seeing how quickly we can get someone to sign a contract. We set expectations and live up to them.”
