“These awards are a testament to the hard work our team puts in day-in and day-out,” explained Kelsey Stuart, the CEO of Bloomin’ Blinds. “On top of all that hard work, we’ve made a commitment to constantly evolve. This mindset has pushed us to grow while simultaneously streamlining our processes, seen through the incorporation of new technology, keeping our foot on the gas - even when things were uncertain this year – and remaining dedicated to providing a top-notch experience to our customers. Our persistence and refusal to be complacent has gotten Bloomin’ Blinds to where it is today and we don’t plan on slowing down.”
Further illustrating the brand’s commitment to innovation, Bloomin’ Blinds plans to unveil a revolutionary visualizer that will be embedded in the Bloomin’ Blinds website by the end of the year. The first of its kind in the industry, this visualizer will help clients view window treatments on their windows without a consultation. While this doesn’t replace an appointment made with their local Bloomin’ Blinds, the technology will help clients feel better prepared ahead of a meeting so that they can ask questions or request to view specific samples. More details will be released upon the technology’s debut.
Known for delivering a superior customer experience, Bloomin’ Blinds offers both window treatment and repair options with the ultimate goal of helping complete a homeowner’s vision from start to finish. The brand has invested in technology that allows the customer to feel safer ahead of a consultation, as the dispatched vehicle is GPS tracked and the mobile app displays a headshot and biography of who will be arriving for the service.
To become a part of the ever-growing $29.9 billion-dollar window covering industry, prospective franchisees can expect a total invest range between $45,000 - 117,000 with discounts available for military veterans and first responders. With 55 territories open across the U.S. in development, the brand is on track for continued strategic franchise expansion, with a goal of operating more than 100 locations by 2022. Recession resistant, the Bloomin’ Blinds franchise opportunity includes unparalleled home office support, complete with comprehensive hands-on training prior to opening, and a tight-knit support group of franchisees dedicated to providing an unmatched, efficient experience to customers.
