The first U.S. Veteran to join Budget Blinds, as a result of the Million Dollar Franchise Event, is Ohio-based Andy Birge. After a prestigious 20-year career in the United States Air Force, Birge retired in Ohio and is thrilled to join Budget Blinds as a franchisee for his next career. Birge was drawn to Budget Blinds® for its notable reputation for providing exceptional team-based support, and the chance to lend the training and experience gained in 20 years of U.S. military service to a franchise business opportunity.
As the second franchisee to join the Budget Blinds team from the Million Dollar Franchise Event, Jim Mullins will be serving customers as a Budget Blinds franchisee in Kansas City, Kansas. After a brief time serving in the U.S. Air Force, Mullins was seeking an opportunity to use the experience gained to start a new chapter. With Budget Blinds’ generous 40% U.S. Veteran discount through the Million Dollar Franchise Event program, Mullins and his son are thrilled that this incentive and proven business model provided the training and opportunity to get started.
“Our team is thrilled to gain the talents and experience of these two U.S. Veterans, as they pursue franchise business ownership for the next chapter of their lives,” said Chad Hallock, CEO of Budget Blinds®. “They have sacrificed for our country and deserve a chance at experiencing the American Dream, so we are honored they have selected Budget Blinds.”
