Orange-based Budget Blinds plans to expand to 100 new territories in 2011, with a goal of reaching a total of 1,500 regions throughout North America over the next few years. That would nearly double its market presence.
To get there, the company is recruiting entrepreneurs who would like to tap into the home-improvement industry as a franchisee. And company executives say now is a perfect time – the market is expected to top $321 billion this year.
“Not only are more consumers primping their homes for sale, but many who are unable to obtain their asking price have removed their houses from the market and are looking to remodeling, renovating and decorating as an intermediary solution, until things pick up,” said Budget Blinds Co-Founder and Executive Vice President Brent Hallock. “That’s where we come in.”
The franchise offers aspiring business owners a chance to capitalize on one of the most thriving and profitable aspects of home improvement – home décor. With a low-cost investment, entrepreneurs gain access to the company's impressive sales volume, relationships with leading manufacturers and multimillion dollar national advertising fund.
Budget Blinds offers are a wide variety of window treatments – including blinds, shutters, cellular shades, roller shades, draperies and curtains from brand-name manufacturers and it's own label, Signature Series.
