Why the Trend Transformations franchise is a must for kitchen and bathroom pioneers 

The WHY is:To enhance the world's surfaces with natural, timeless and sustainable beauty.

Danny Hanlon, CEO, Granite & Trend Transformations UK.


TREND Transformations is the franchise network which is owned and operated by Rocksolid Granit (Europe) Limited - the franchisor. TREND Transformations started in 1996; the pilot operation was in Perth, Australia and was set up by the founders of the business, Colin MacKenzie and Bob Smith. Since then, TREND Transformations  has expanded  across  the  globe with 64  franchise operations across  the  USA and  Canada, 42 in  Australia, 2 in New Zealand and 1 in Italy. TREND Transformations started franchising in the UK in 2003 and now has 21 franchisees.

Combining the finest granites, quartz and glass with state-of-the-art polymer technology, TREND Transformations uses a unique engineered stone which is fixed directly over existing kitchen worktops or onto new kitchen worktops. The products are designed to add a touch of luxury and bring a new lease of life to tired and dull kitchens, bathrooms and more. Every installation is individually produced to order and manufactured off site to minimise disruption; then professionally fitted therefore ensuring minimum disturbance, mess and fuss for clients.  Appliances, tiles, sinks, taps and the like are all part of the service too.
