ORANGE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 4, 2012) - Each week, Undercover Boss, CBS's popular reality TV show, follows a different executive as they leave the comfort of their corner office to examine the inner workings of their companies in a roll-up-your-sleeves environment. On Friday, April 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), Chad Hallock, CEO of Budget Blinds, steps up to the plate! The episode will feature Chad trading in his suit for a Budget Blinds polo shirt as he works hands on in the blind manufacturing process and then goes door to door, taking part in customer consultations and installing blinds.
In 1992, Chad co-founded Budget Blinds with his brother and three close friends with no more than a smile on his face and $5000 in his pocket. Today, the company has grown to become the largest window furnishings franchise in North America. Budget Blinds now finds itself invaluably positioned in a multi-billion dollar industry that is expected to grow by 6% in the coming years. From blinds to shutters, drapes to shades, Budget Blinds is a one-stop source for a homeowner's window furnishing needs. The company celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
Although Chad began on the front lines, his years behind the desk are sure to make an impact on his performance on the show. "When I was approached with the opportunity, I took it without hesitation," Chad said. "To be able to work with the franchisees that have made this company a success was something I could not pass up -- even though I knew it would be challenging since I haven't taken part in an in-home consultation or installed blinds in quite some time!"
Brent Hallock, Chad's brother and Executive Vice President of Budget Blinds, added, "Not only is this a great opportunity for Chad, it's a great opportunity for the company as a whole. We're constantly seeking new ways to improve our operations and provide the best in customer service. Being on Undercover Boss will undoubtedly provide valuable insight into that, as well as into whether or not Chad can tell the difference between a screwdriver and a wrench."
