Bloomin' Blinds is a home based business that is built for on-site service and allows for a business to be fully managed within the body of a typical work van. We offer both window covering sales and repair which allows Bloomin' Blinds to be able to jump into any market and gain market share quickly.
Bloomin' Blinds is unique to its competition in the fact that we offer blind repair, and sales. The focus on blind repair makes it easier for Bloomin' Blinds to generate new customers, win bids and create repeat appointments. Blind repair is easy to learn and most blinds are generic which makes it simple for us to replicate our model with you. Since blind repair parts are not available at traditional hardware stores, home owners are happy to pay Bloomin' Blinds to fix a blind rather than buy a new one. Blind repair is easily the most profitable aspect of the Bloomin' Blinds model, profit margins are extremely high and provide consistent cash flow to your business.
Bloomin' Blinds sells blinds too. We have found that clients are drawn to a company that can offer sales and repair. We continually hear that a homeowner would prefer an & quot;all in one& quot; company in the event something did happen and repairs were required. Bloomin' Blinds is able to win bids with an 83% closure rate. We have wholesale deals in place so that our franchisees will purchase their goods at prices reserved for only the largest of companies, from day one.
A well-run Bloomin' Blinds location will grow with a & quot;snowball& quot; effect. Most franchise owners will likely need a staff of 1-3 within five years.

You've made the decision to seek out a new business opportunity. Perhaps it's simply because you are tired of trading time for money. Perhaps your existing job or business is not providing you the income or wealth generation that you desire. You may simply be seeking an opportunity that provides you the time and income to pursue your life to the fullest. If any of these examples sounds like you, then it's time you considered a franchise opportunity with The Glass Guru.
The Glass Guru is the world leader in glass restoration, repair, and replacement. Our cutting-edge window restoration services, provides property owners with an environmentally-friendly way to restore foggy windows, at about half the cost of traditional replacement. In addition to restoration services, our franchise locations offer and extensive array of replacement glass products, as well as window and entry door replacements. The Glass Guru provides franchise owners with a winning concept, allowing us to become the fastest growing company in the glass, window, and door industry.
Since 2007, The Glass Guru has grown to over 87 franchises in North America. One of the attributes of the company's rapid growth has been the consistency of the real estate "maintenance" spending. From 2001 through 2011, home improvement activity continued to weaken, while maintenance spending remained steady, even seeing an uptick in 2007*. Our franchisees have quickly realized that even when the economy softens, property owners will still expeditiously replace glass when it's required. Every home has windows, doors, screens, mirrors and shower enclosures. As these critical home components age, fail, and break over time, every homeowner needs to have someone to call.
Couple those consistent spending levels in real-estate maintenance with the bright outlook forecast for the home-improvement front over the next several years, and you have a formula for success. Demand for windows and doors in the U.S. are forecast to rise 9.3% per year over the next several years.**
