With 300-plus units across the nation, average unit volumes of $399,993 and decades of history, Christmas Decor, the Christmas decorating franchise, has built a powerful business model and continues to make meaningful progress year over year. 

While the model has long offered a great investment option for entrepreneurs looking to start a meaningful — but still lucrative — business, its performance in recent years only solidifies the strength of the opportunity. In 2022, Christmas Decor reached $75 million in system-wide revenue. The franchise system exceeded that benchmark last year, and it’s only getting stronger.

Here are five reasons to consider investing in a Christmas Decor franchise this year.

A Low Barrier to Entry With Potential for Strong Returns

Christmas Decor requires a relatively low initial investment, and it has even been recognized by Entrepreneur as a top franchise opportunity for less than $50,000. While this makes the franchise incredibly accessible for most franchisees, the low cost is not a direct reflection of an owner’s ability to bring in meaningful revenue.

According to Christmas Decor’s 2023 Franchise Disclosure Document, franchised units achieved an average gross revenue of $399,993, and the top-performing unit reported nearly $6 million in gross revenue.

Because the heart of the Christmas Decor business lies in professionals making trips to customers' homes for the installation, maintenance, and/or removal of lighting, owners can run a no-frills model that keeps unnecessary costs to a minimum while maintaining a high level of service where it matters.

Incredible Franchisee Onboarding and Support Ensures Owners Are Prepared to Launch and Scale

Christmas Decor has decades of experience and, throughout that time, it has built very strong processes to ensure the business model and support teams guide franchisees in the direction of success. 

New franchisees with Christmas Decor participate in a thorough training program that prepares them to hit the ground running. Then, throughout their growth, owners receive marketing support, some of the best technology tools in the industry, high-quality lighting and decor products, a customer support team and a Franchise Consultant for ongoing support.

The Opportunity for Seasonal Work Offers a Great Supplement for Existing Business Owners

For entrepreneurs who already own a seasonal business like a pest control or lawn care concept, Christmas Decor is a reliable way to boost revenue during the colder months. Businesses that provide outdoor home services often see a dip in demand and revenue during their respective off-seasons, and this can create instability for business owners and their employees.

Though Christmas Decor owners do work on the business all year round, the busiest time of year for the team is the holiday season — often when other outdoor home services concepts are seeing a lull.

Adding Christmas Decor to your investment portfolio allows for more diversification and serves as a way to boost revenue during the slow season without committing to another business that will require an intense, year-round commitment.

Sister Brands Help Franchisees Turn Their Christmas Decor Business Into a Year-Round Venture

Christmas Decor focuses on Christmas decorations, but The Decor Group also has sister companies like NiteTime Decor. This allows franchisees to expand their reach, serving a single client base with multiple services.

By offering year-round lighting services and support, franchise owners can create even more predictability in their business. This minimizes the impact of seasonal ebbs and flows, allowing owners to build an even stronger relationship with customers through repeat service.

A Meaningful Business Opportunity

Owning and operating a Christmas Decor business is very fulfilling due to the emotions associated with the holidays. In many cases, Christmas Decor owners are helping families in their own communities to make holiday dreams come true. But the rewards run even deeper.

The Christmas Decor leadership team encourages its owners to support local organizations and families in need through time, monetary and service donations. Each holiday season, Christmas Decor owners across the nation identify families in need or families of note in their own communities — often recognizing first responders, veterans and other public service providers — and surprise them with free Christmas decorations. 

Being a business owner makes these donations and partnerships even more attainable, and giving back in this manner is another way franchisees can find value in their businesses beyond financial stability.

As Christmas Decor works to expand its presence across the U.S. and Canada in 2024, it continues to offer a strong, fulfilling business model. Christmas Decor can be flexible, serving entrepreneurs who seek a seasonal opportunity or a year-round one and adapting to teams large and small. For this reason, the leadership team is most focused on partnering with driven franchisees who find value in bringing a bit more holiday magic to their communities.
