Budget Blinds CEO Chad Hallock to Appear on CBS’s Hit Series “Undercover Boss”
ORANGE, CA – Each week, “Undercover
Boss,” CBS’s popular reality series, follows a different executive as they
leave the comfort of their corner office to examine the inner workings of their
companies in a roll-up-your-sleeves environment. On Friday, April 13th, Chad Hallock, CEO of Budget Blinds, stepped up to the plate! The
episode featured Chad trading in his suit for a Budget Blinds polo shirt as
he worked hands on in the blind manufacturing process and then went door to
door, taking part in customer consultations and product installations. For those of you who missed the entertaining episode, it will re-air on CBS Friday, July 20th at 8pm (PST)!
In 1992, Chad co-founded Budget
Blinds with his brother and three close friends with no more than a smile on
his face and $5000 in his pocket. Today, the company has grown to become the
largest window coverings franchise in North America. Budget Blinds now finds
itself invaluably positioned in a multi-billion dollar industry that is
expected to grow by 6% in the coming years. From blinds to shutters, drapes to
shades, Budget Blinds is a one-stop source for a homeowner’s window covering
needs. The company celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
Although Chad began on the front
lines, his years behind the desk are sure to make an impact on his performance
on the show. “When I was approached with the opportunity, I took it without
hesitation,” Chad said. “To be able to work with the franchisees that have made
this company a success was something I could not pass up - even though I knew
it would be challenging since I haven’t taken part in an in-home consultation
or installed a blind in quite some time!"
Brent Hallock, Chad’s brother and
Executive Vice President of Budget Blinds added, “Not only is this a great
opportunity for Chad, it’s a great opportunity for the company as a whole.
We’re constantly seeking new ways to improve our operations and provide the
best in customer service. Being on ‘Undercover Boss’ will undoubtedly provide
valuable insight into that, as well as into whether or not Chad can tell the
difference between a screwdriver and a wrench.”
