Joy Stewart

Joy Stewart and Her Grandchildren

Partnering with the popular home improvement show Designing Spaces, and the local non-profit organization Rebuilding Together, Budget Blinds received the honor and opportunity to help renovate a home for a Florida family in need on the 3 episode segment “Spaces of Hope”. Airing on Designing Spaces on Lifetime television, Thursday, April 11th, 2013, the window franchise business worked alongside local volunteers to completely renovate the home of Joy Stewart’s and her four grandchildren.

Before the makeover, Joy and her family of four were found living in a home with no heat, running water, electricity, or food. With the help of our vendor partner, Custom Brands Group, and franchisees Connie Bolton and Tom Kay, Budget Blinds was able to provide Enlighten Styles cellular shades throughout the home to help add to the final touches of their new abode. Franchisee Tom Kay elaborates on his experience working with the community, “It was truly rewarding to work hands-on with everyone and to help implement my home business ideas into the creation of something so critical for this family. Budget Blinds is the best franchise and it was great to be involved with this local project.”

Budget Blinds is honored to have been part of such a revolutionizing experience in the Stewart’s lives and also to have had the chance to collaborate with the South Florida community. The effort would not have been possible without our wonderful vendors, franchisees, Designing Spaces, and Rebuilding together. We look forward to playing an active role in more local business franchise opportunities in the near future! To catch the full story, please tune in at 7:30 a.m. to view the series of three episodes airing on Lifetime television on 4/4, 4/11, and 4/18.
