After twenty years in business, Budget Blinds has 775 franchises in the US and 101 franchises in Canada. With impressive numbers like these, they are able to boast they are the top window covering franchise in both the U.S. and Canada.
But don’t fret; territories remain available in many parts of the country. Jonathan Thiessen, the Vice President of Franchise Licensing for Budget Blinds explained, “With over 100 franchises awarded in Canada, most people are surprised we still have ample room for growth. We are actively pursuing candidates who are interested in adding to the phenomenal success story that Budget Blinds has become in Canada.”
Budget Blinds franchises can be run out of your home and costs $74,950 to get started (partial financing is available). The concept is so popular with current franchisees that 42% of them own more than one Budget Blinds location. According to Leanne Fisher, who owns the Budget Blinds Franchise in Regina, Saskatchewan: “There was no inventory or overheard. That was very attractive for us and really a risk free type business model.”
Chad Haddock, one of the founders and the current CEO of Budget Blinds explained their “ideal franchisee is a motivated person with a positive attitude, because those are two things that can’t be taught or learned.”
Budget Blinds is actively seeking franchise partners throughout Quebec, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. In addition, they are looking for Ontario franchisees for Kingston, Toronto and London. Last but certainly not least; they are exploring growth opportunities around Vancouver, British Columbia.
If you live in one of these regions and feel you are a fit for this opportunity, we encourage you to contact Budget Blinds immediately as these territories will be snapped up.
