Overview

Gotcha Covered - Franchise Information

WHY THE CUSTOM WINDOW TREATMENT BUSINESS?
Look around and you will see windows everywhere. Every home and every business has windows that needs to be covered. This $20 billion industry is largely unbranded. Here’s some of the reasons we think it’s the best opportunity you’ve never heard of:

  • Fragmented industry – the largest retailer has 3% market share, and the rest is mostly small, independent dealers that lack buying power, marketing sophistication or technology
  • Simple business requires no design experience
  • Regardless of the economy, windows always need to be covered
  • High margins, low overhead, and cash flow friendly
  • Extremely lucrative

IDEAL FRANCHISEE BACKGROUND
Our franchisees’ backgrounds are diverse, ranging from stay-at-home moms to CEOs. Very few have design experience, and we’ve found that it has no bearing on success. Here is what does make a good franchisee:

  • High-energy, friendly personality
  • Hard working and self-motivated
  • Desire to work with people
  • Sales and marketing experience is a bonus

WHY GOTCHA COVERED

  • Lifestyle business, 9 to 5 with flexibility for work/life balance
  • Low startup cost – high income potential
  • Cash flow friendly with no inventory, aging receivables, bad debt (customers pay before ordering), or contingent liabilities
  • High margins (over 50%), high average transaction (over $2,000)
  • No design experience required
  • Great business for anyone, male or female

WHO IS GOTCHA COVERED?

  • Covering B2B and B2C windows with custom window treatments
  • Offering virtually everything for the inside of the window including blinds, shades, shutters, window film, curtains, draperies, and more.
  • Flexible business with excellent work/life balance
  • Home-based initially with the option to expand into a retail store front

HOW DO WE BEAT THE COMPETITION?

  • Rather than focusing on just hard treatments like blinds, we offer our customers virtually every type of window treatment available including high-margin soft treatments like drapes
  • Full-cycle Customer Relationship Management (CRM) that manages every aspect of business including contact management, scheduling, task management, proposals, marketing automation, and more to generate more sales in less time
  • Buying power, marketing savvy, and vendor relationships that independent dealers simply cannot compete with
