The Perfect Candidate
What We’re Looking for In Blinds Franchise Owners
In order to find success with our blinds franchise, prospective candidates need to be a great match for our brand. When seeking the ideal candidate, we look for someone who has a love for new experiences. Drive is a key trait in our franchisees because this is not a hands-off kind of opportunity. Since our owners handle everything from sales calls to repair appointments to the management needed to build a business, we often look for people who are willing to “get their hands dirty.”
Our industry requires someone who is a problem solver, as there are often many variables and solutions to any given problem. If you’re someone who likes to approach problems with a detective mentality or who treats problems like they are puzzles, our blinds franchise might be a great opportunity for you!
Some traits we also look for in prospective franchisees include:
- Customer service-oriented. The best way to grow your business is with positive word of mouth. The only way to achieve that is by providing outstanding customer service to every client we encounter. From the first phone call until the end of our installation, they need to be treated like they are our only client.
- Positive. Though this probably goes without saying, positivity is infectious, so we want our team to always emanate friendliness and optimism. This will help us gain the trust of our clients.
- Creative. Because our job entails transforming the look and feel of clients’ homes, a creative eye is important to helping them achieve the look they desire.
- Honesty. We offer our free estimates so that we can provide our clients with a no-obligation meeting to see what we’re all about. We must always be upfront and honest with our pricing and scheduling to ensure they are fully satisfied when the project is complete.
