#1 Window Coverings Franchise Creates New Division to Meet the Needs of Commercial Clients

ORANGE, CA, May 10, 2012 – Recognizing the opportunity to provide window coverings to the $950 million commercial market, Budget Blinds, the nation‘s largest window coverings franchise, has announced the launch of BB Commercial Solutions (BBCS). With over 800 franchises in North America, Budget Blinds has a vendor alliance program and national footprint that is unmatched. These distinct competitive advantages will be incorporated into BBCS operations, placing it in prime position to dominate the fragmented commercial window coverings industry.

Whereas Budget Blinds primarily services homeowners, BBCS will cater to the specific needs of businesses and institutions such as restaurants, hotels, retail stores, hospitals, schools and more.  BBCS will provide quality window treatments using adapted solutions so every niche commercial need is met.

“Because BBCS is backed by the market expertise and brand recognition of Budget Blinds, we immediately become the largest commercial window coverings provider in the country,” said John Campbell, Vice President of Vendor Alliance at BBCS. “This has allowed us to develop exclusive programs with top industry manufacturers such as Hunter Douglas, Levolor and Bali. The end result is our ability to give clients the widest product selection at competitive prices.”

A key feature of BBCS is its unique attunement to specific commercial window covering requirements. Whether a client desires child-safe, environmentally friendly, energy efficient or fire retardant window coverings, the ideal solution is readily available. Also, with close to 1,000 trained commercial window covering specialists across the country, BBCS can manage projects of any scope, solving the problem of clients only having local businesses to turn to. With just one call, facility managers, architects, interior designers and all other interested parties now have access to a one-stop shop for their window covering needs.

“We are extremely excited about the launch of BBCS and the opportunity it represents to tap into the billion dollar commercial window coverings industry,” said Chad Hallock, CEO of Budget Blinds. “Our national footprint and vendor alliances place us above the competition.
