Here’s what our franchisees say: 

“My experience with the Made in the Shade family has been amazing. You never know for sure what you are getting into when you enter a new business. However, this is one of those great surprises.

Along with the wonderful support of Cathy and her team, as well as the other Made in the Shade franchisees, you never feel alone.  Cathy and her team have made every Made in the Shade franchisee feel part of the big picture! I am allowed to run a successful business while still being able to control my own calendar. What can get better than that? I must truly say it was a wonderful decision I made 3 years ago!”
