Budget Blinds of Greenville, New Bern and Morehead City Awarded at Convention

Member company, Budget Blinds of Greenville, New Bern and Morehead City,  has been recognized as the number 5 best performing Budget Blinds franchise in North America. The company was recognized and awarded on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at the Annual Budget Blinds Convention in Dallas, Texas.

The Budget Blinds team is a consistent top-performing team and has won numerous awards for superior performance in recent years.

Matt Thomas, Sales Consultant, accepted the award on behalf of franchise owner Charlie Utz at the Dallas, Texas convention. “Over 1400 franchise owners, including those in Canada and Mexico were represented at the convention. To hear your name called as the 5th Ranked Franchise was an humbling experience. To think that our rural and coastal location in Eastern North Carolina ranked number 5, alongside the more heavily populated regions such as Charleston SC and the Hamptons in New York is just amazing.”

Owner Charlie Utz said, “This top honor was achieved by the hard work of not only the sales team, but also the team behind the scenes. The office staff and installers play a major part in our success. This is truly a team award and I am looking forward to what 2018 brings us.”
