Woodcraft Franchise Testimonials

Allan Chaney: Dreamer & Multiple Store Owner - Tulsa & Oklahoma City, OK



It Was A Huge Decision To Bail on A Corporate Job.

But, Woodcraft was the best decision I ever made.

Meet Allan – hobbyist woodworker, accomplished businessman and a firm believer that life should be rewarding both personally and professionally. Allan was working for a large Fortune 500 company which had an awesome benefit and pension  package. He had over 10 successful years with them, but he was spending little time at home  because he was always traveling. It became evident his life was anything but balanced. So, when he saw a franchise opportunity with Woodcraft, the most trusted name in woodworking, he reached for the brass ring. No wonder. From demographic research for a store location to a detailed operations manual coupled with ongoing technical and marketing support, Woodcraft provides a complete franchise system backed by the most recognized brand in the industry. Allan will tell you that although it has not been an easy road, with a lot of hard work and the support of Woodcraft, dreams do come true. 

Which begs the question, when will yours?

Mike Sauder: Dreamer & Multiple Woodcraft Store Owner Texas


After 30 years in the travel industry, it was time to move on.

So, I turned my passion for woodworking into a second career.

Meet Mike - In Texas, you either go big or you go home. And Mike is living proof. After 30 years in the travel industry, he took a swing at improving his golf game. But when that didn’t go as planned, he turned all his attention to his other love – woodworking. An energetic entrepreneur, Mike quickly realized he could turn his hobby into a second career. So when he saw franchise opportunities with Woodcraft, one of the most trusted names in woodworking, he knew he was about to carve out a whole new future for himself.  If you talked to him, Mike would tell you that thanks to Woodcraft and a lot of seven-day weeks owning and operating six Woodcraft stores, he is truly living his dream.
