About Budget Blinds

Budget Blinds was founded in Orange County, California in 1992 when five friends who were waiting tables decided to invest $5,000 each in starting a window covering company. The original idea was to create a custom window covering business that offered convenient shop-at-home service for window coverings and home décor accessories.

In just two years, the group went from canvassing neighborhoods with branded door hangers to growing to a 1280-unit franchise, proving that the convenience of in-home shopping and installation appealed to customers nationwide.

The Budget Blinds founders later formed Home Franchise Concepts (HFC) and started franchising other home service brands outside of Budget Blinds that include Tailored Living®, Concrete Craft® and AdvantaClean®, making HFC one of the largest home services franchises in North America.

What Sets Budget Blinds Apart?

From a consumer standpoint, Budget Blinds’ breadth of product selection is unmatched in the industry, spanning multiple categories from more traditional window coverings like blindsshutters and shades, to an exclusive collection of designer drapes, rugs, pillows and bedding. As part of the new Smart Home Collection, the brand continues to appeal to changing consumer demand by providing home automation solutions for window coverings as well as smart lighting and more.

To help customers navigate this wide selection, the brand offers a consultation-style approach in which customers are able to contact their local Budget Blinds consultant and find whatever they are looking for at the best price.

Why Budget Blinds?

After 28 years of business servicing 1,150 territories in North America and installing 50,000 window treatments per week, the brand has been able to establish itself as an industry leader in the residential and commercial spaces and as one of the top low-investment franchise opportunities for entrepreneurs looking to enter an already-established business.

Budget Blinds’ operations are home-based, with low inventory, very little overhead and high profit margins. And for those who are looking for a career change at a low cost, the initial investment of under $125,000 is crucial. In addition, the brand offers franchisees a flexible work schedule and greater overall career security as an independent owner and operator of their own business. 

Prospects don’t need to be experts in window covering or home services. When it comes to support, the brand’s expert training staff provides highly personalized and informative training from immersive product knowledge and sales, to comprehensive local area marketing programs and installation support. The commercial aspect of the business is also growing, allowing franchise owners to create additional revenue streams by servicing restaurants, hotels, office buildings and other businesses.

As the top provider of custom window coverings in North America, Budget Blinds is a widely recognized brand in the growing home-improvement franchise industry. Franchisees can capitalize on a powerful brand name with national recognition, an amazing network of Alliance vendors, a dedicated team at the Budget Blinds home office and the brand’s marketing power in order to realize their dreams of owning a business franchise.

Franchise owners enjoy the opportunity to contribute to their community by helping people enjoy their homes even more. Budget Blinds allows franchise owners to join an incredible community and network of fellow franchisees that help and support each other. Budget Blind franchisees are not just joining a business — they are joining a family.

Why is Now the Time to Invest?

The original five partners sold the company back in 2015 to a private equity firm. In July 2019 JM Family Enterprises, Inc., South Florida’s $16.3 billion diversified automotive company, acquired Home Franchise Concepts (Budget Blinds parent company), helping to provide their expertise and capital and with their leadership, take the Budget Blinds brand to the next level.

While many industries have struggled to survive the COVID-19 pandemic, the home services segment has been fortunate to experience a boom in business during an otherwise devastating time. Many homeowners are choosing to invest their yearly vacation budget into home improvement amid the pandemic, and for Budget Blinds, this surge in demand has created an opportunity to excel in new markets. Many of Budget Blinds’ franchisees are having a record year in sales, and franchisees have continued to see strong sales and profit margins, including a 54% gross profit average, as well as an industry-leading closing rates average. 

Now, Budget Blinds is planning to continue to take advantage of its high-demand positioning and is seeking to grow its strong community of franchise owners.
