Decorating Den

Designer Nola Shivers, owner and operator of the Nixa branch of Decorating Den, and her team were recognized as a top performing location in sales for the company. They have the third highest sales among franchises with Atlanta, Georgia and Naples, Florida locations taking the top two slots. Decorating Den Interiors consists of 200 franchises.

Decorating Den of Nixa employs three full time designers, including Shivers, and three support staff, and offers residential and commercial design services. The staff has a pool of over 140 vendors from which to draw materials, furniture, accessories, flooring and anything else design related.

“We can help anybody,” says Jennifer Green, VP of operations and Shivers’ daughter. “Whether someone needs a blind for a tiny window or a house full of furniture, we can do that. And one thing that really sets us apart from everybody else is that we don’t charge a design fee on top of what we do.”

Though Shivers started with the one franchise location in Nixa, she and her husband have grown the business to include management of three locations in Kansas City and one location in Rogers, Arkansas.

Shivers joined the franchise under a previous owner in 1995 and then bought the franchise in 1998. She has since brought in her husband and daughter giving the franchise the feel of a family run business.

“We have the most amazing group here,” says Shivers. “I am blessed beyond belief because of this group and how talented they are and how well they work together.” Green adds, “We really do all get along so well. The other girls are like my sisters.”

Shivers says the parent company is incredibly supportive and provides monthly trainings, helping the designers learn about new products and stay on top of current trends in interior design.

“We get together with the franchise management a few times a year and we also have a large national conference where everyone goes to take classes,” says Shivers. “It’s just a great company to be a part of.” “I never intended to be a business owner,” says Shivers. “But it’s such an awesome franchise.”
