To understand the advantages of an independently owned blind provider your need to know how they differ from a franchise blind provider.
A franchise blinds provider is a business that legally uses a large company’s (the franchisor’s) expertise, ideas, processes and product. They’re provided with a format or system developed by the company (franchisor) and the right to use the franchisor’s name for a specific number of years. A franchise blind provider must follow specific rules, meet certain requirements, conform to corporate standards, and deal with only the suppliers and vendors permitted under the franchise agreement. A franchise owner will be pressured to meet certain financial goals and sell a particular product line. There’s little room for individuality and creativity.
An independently owned blinds provider can stock and sell the products they desire; choosing brands based on quality, design, cost and clients’ needs. With no rules and requirements, they are free to focus on their customers; their needs, desires, tastes, satisfaction. Individuality, creativity and ingenuity are encouraged and enjoyed. Because they are privately owned, independent blind providers are committed to the success of their business, going the extra mile to develop and maintain the trust and loyalty of their clientele. They bring vision, passion, and pride to their business. An independent blind company is owned by local people who understand your needs and cater to your tastes and requirements.
