Budget Blinds®, the signature window covering brand in the Home Franchise Concepts (HFC) family, has finalized an agreement with Hunter Douglas, the world’s leading manufacturer of window coverings, that will allow Budget Blinds franchisees throughout Canada to sell the popular Hunter Douglas line.
Effective November 15, 2019, Budget Blinds’ 74 franchisees in Canada were eligible to join the Hunter Douglas Aligned Dealer Program and add the Hunter Douglas brand to their signature in-home design consultation and installation service. These franchise owners now have access to Hunter Douglas’ hundreds of window-covering products including sheers, shades, blinds and shutters plus PowerView® motorization and other advanced operating systems.
Budget Blinds is North America’s largest network of franchised window covering professionals, and installs window coverings in an average of 60,000 homes per week.
“Today’s announcement brings together two of the largest and most prestigious names in customized window coverings in Canada and further expands Budget Blinds’ industry leadership in window covering design, quality, product variety and customer service,” said Tracy Christman, HFC’s executive vice president of product development and management.
According to Christman, the deal benefits Budget Blinds franchisees in Canada who can now combine an even-larger, world-class array of design-focused window covering options with the brand’s exclusive in-home service.
The partnership between Home Franchise Concepts’ flagship brand and Hunter Douglas is part of an expanded commitment by Budget Blinds to lead the industry in customization, innovation and community partnership across North America. Additional consumer-focused Budget Blinds programs will be announced in the coming weeks.
