The following are excerpts from a few of our franchisee’s testimonials that should help you understand the income earning potential in our industry:


…”Our business has increased sales by about 300% this year versus our first, full, fiscal year! Matt was able to double his restaurant manager salary within the second fiscal year”

Matt and Kelli Houston, Made in the Shade Austin, TX


“By our second year in business, our sales had more than doubled our first year’s gross revenue. After now being in the business for 4 years, I’ve built my business so that I can make a comfortable living working 25-30 hours a week doing a job that I absolutely love

Louise Jessop, Made in the Shade Halifax, NS


“What I realized after I was in the window treatment business is that every window in every house and business can use blinds. The potential in this business is unlimited, and with Made in the Shade, my dream for financial freedom and success came true for me.”

Scott Wedl, Made in the Shade Madison WI


“I started as the only sales person and now have a sales team of 5 part-time consultants who are paid commissions on their sales. The tremendous earning potential is based on your commitment, motivation, work ethic, and your ability to build relationships. I love every aspect of this business, from working with my clients and sales staff, to office work, to marketing, and installation.”

Kerri Kuefler, Made in the Shade South Central Alberta


“The relatively low start-up costs made it a little less daunting to get started and allowed me to recoup my initial investment pretty quickly. My sales have nearly doubled each year and I look forward to building my team to include additional consultants.”

Janna Kiersnowski, Made in the Shade Lake Mary, FL
