Decorating Den Interiors’ Chairman Voted 'Best Franchising Pioneer'

August 16, 2013 // Franchising.com // Easton, Md. - James S. Bugg, Sr., chairman of Decorating Den Interiors (www.decoratingden.com), North America’s largest interior design and home furnishings franchise company, was voted “Best Franchising Pioneer” after a month of online voting on a website that presented brief biographies of 50 pioneers who helped build the $2 trillion franchise industry.

Bugg was the only home furnishings executive in the listing.

“Bugg is a pioneer in the franchise industry because he helped the International Franchise Association open up its membership requirements to include franchisees. At the same time, he was part of the Minorities, Awards, and International Affairs committees, among others,” the website reported. Bugg, who is in the IFA’s Hall of Fame, has led Decorating Den Interiors since 1984. His previous franchising experience includes leadership roles with Century 21 Real Estate and Partners Real Estate.

“Franchising is one of the largest drivers of job growth and economic output,” said Empowerkit Chief Executive Chris Anderson, whose firm sponsored the website. “We wanted to identify and celebrate the trail blazers who have helped forge the path for the industry’s proliferation and success, while increasing public awareness of the economic impact of franchising.”

Rounding out the top ten vote recipients were: Don Dwyer, Sr. of the Dwyer Group, Henry Bloch of H&R Block, Richard Rennick of American Leak Detection, JoAnne Shaw of the Coffee Beanery, Ray Kroc of McDonald’s, Martha Mitilda Harper of The Harper Hair Parlour, David Thomas of Wendy’s, Colonel Harland Sanders of Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Frederick DeLuca of Subway.
