Budget Blinds Franchise

Budget Blinds has been a widely recognized brand and proven franchise business model for over 25 years running. As the number one provider of custom window coverings in North America, Budget Blinds has pioneered the shop-at-home business model for the industry, and while many have copied our model to capitalize on that success, no one has the customer reach, depth of product, or marketing power that comes with our decades of experience. The largest window covering company in North America, Budget Blinds offers customers a wider range of choices, expert service, honest and transparent pricing, and a no-questions-asked warranty that customers simply won't find anywhere else.

To buy a franchise with Budget Blinds, you'll need to have at least $64950 in liquid capital and a minimum net worth of $150000. Budget Blinds charges a franchise fee of $89950. They also offer a discount for veterans.
