Decorating Den Interiors Announces Franchise Of The Year And Other Top Business Awards

June 03, 2016 // // Easton, Md. - Franchise owner Deanna Frazier, of Plano, Texas, was named Franchise of the Year, the highest franchisee business award presented by Decorating Den Interiors, North America’s largest interior design and home furnishings franchise company and leading in-home decorating service.

“Deanna has been on a remarkable pace since opening her franchise less than five years ago,” said Jim Bugg, Jr., president and CEO. “She consistently demonstrates the value of meticulous business planning and follow-through. Her exceptional dedication and service through cooperation with other franchise owners, suppliers and management are excellent examples of this award’s criteria.”

“I am thrilled and honored to receive the Franchise of the Year award,” said Frazier. “This would not have been possible without the wonderful support system of Decorating Den and the fantastic supplier network!”
