In 1992 five young entrepreneurs founded Budget Blinds home furnishing franchise with the goal of selling top notch window coverings in a convenient format at affordable prices. Today, Budget Blinds has over 100 Canadian and 700 U.S. locations still upholding the same core values. Our five founders are active in training and supporting our franchisees, and our 65 member support staff stays on hand to offer help when needed.
Custom window coverings are a $7-billion industry. All buildings have windows, and almost all windows need coverings, so our potential customer base is enormous. Our product mix includes shutters, drapery, blinds, shades, window film, motorization, solar shades and commercial applications. Our franchisees close more than 75% of their sales appointments. Our program is distinctly Canada and we strive to use Canadian providers whenever possible.
