Starting a Granite & Marble Dealership Business

Do you own a marble or granite countertop in your kitchen? If so, you know how sturdy and beautiful these stones can be. Granite and marble have always been a favorite for kitchen and bathroom surfaces and other places in the house. It is no surprise that it would become a very lucrative business.

If you decide to set up your own Granite and Marble Dealership, you may be making a wise investment. However, unlike what most people believe, success in running this kind of dealership is not just a stone's throw away, as you will have to keep a few pointers in mind.

Setting up your Granite and Marble Dealership Business Plan

One major factor that will affect your potential Granite and Marble Dealership is your supplier. If you already have friends or relatives who supply marble, granite, and other natural stone, you no longer have to worry about this. But if you don’t, then it is best that you start looking. Search your local and neighboring communities to see any suppliers nearby. You can do the old-fashioned way by phone calls or on foot, or you can use search engines such as Google and Yahoo! to search for suppliers in your area online. Before you make further commitments to this business, you must already have one or more suppliers where you can get the stones.

Where to Start Your Granite & Marble Dealership Biz

Another significant factor you must consider for your business is location. Your store must be easily accessed on the road, and it is much better if it is near your supplier. It must also be significant, as you will need much space to house the marble and granite slabs. In addition, the place must have a showroom where you can showcase the stones to your customers. And if possible, you must also have space for tub decks, mock kitchens, bars, furniture, and fireplaces.

Similar Articles

One of the things that might also affect the location of your business is competition. Having a competitor close to your Granite and Marble Dealership can help improve your services, but having too many will make it harder for you to profit. This might be even worse if your competitors have been at it for a relatively long time now, as they may already have a base of loyal customers. Please research the competitors in your area, and study how they operate and their strengths and weakness. Who knows, if you find a niche in the business that your competitors don’t fill, you might have a potential goldmine.

Finally, once you have suppliers and settled on the location, you must be ready for a 24/7 commitment to the job. The Granite and Marble Dealership is lucrative, but you must be prepared to work for a good profit. For example, you must be ready to explain to your customers the differences between one type of granite and another and other kind of stone. The stones must also be done of professional quality, and that requires a lot of work to do. If you think you can do all of these, you have an excellent chance to succeed in this dealership.

    The article is good. I wanted to know the scope of this business in Canada. From where the Supplies come and can it be combined with other flooring materials. Do the counter tops come in ready form or the granite slabs come and need to do labour work here which i think will be expensive in Canada.
