You can probably find a franchise business for just about anything in the world, such as a luxury cat hotel or a space where people pay money to come and take out their aggressions in specialty “smash rooms.” When looking to be your own boss and start a business, it’s easy to get sidetracked checking out unconventional options, and the more unconventional, the more entertaining…and the more time you can waste checking out highly unlikely prospects.
Luckily for Paul and LuShaun Curtis, they found the Budget Blinds® franchise opportunity when looking for a way to gain more window treatment customers for a business they were already involved in.
“I’ve been working in Lexington for the past four years with Abigail Cool and a company called Castle and Cottage, in which we basically have been sewing drapery and doing window coverings,” LuShaun shares. “Once we knew enough and felt all of the support of the [Budget Blinds franchise] … we decided to sign on the dotted line and buy the franchise.”
They ended up buying Budget Blinds serving Concordia, for solid reasons that reflect who they are and the goals they were working toward.
- Increased business potential
- Areas of interest and expertise
- A family business: mom, dad and son
Their grand opening was March 2016, announced in the local paper, The Concoridian. Click here to read the full article, Concordia Residents Join Window Treatment Company, about their transition to becoming independent franchise business owners, building on their existing experience and skills.
