HFC Co-Founder, Dave Lewis, Gives Back to the Community

In the spirit of giving this holiday season, HFC – parent company of Budget Blinds and Tailored Living – would like to spotlight co-founder and Chief Information Officer Dave Lewis and his efforts to give back to the community!

Dave has always believed in giving back to those in need. He is very involved with his local church and often supports many of their philanthropic initiatives including building homes in Mexico, water wells in Kenya, and feeding/housing the homeless across Orange County, CA. Dave also participates in his church’s Giving Tree every year where presents are donated to families in need by picking their names off a Christmas tree.

A few months ago, Dave and his wife were invited to a charity event for cystic fibrosis that featured a silent auction. Dave and his wife not only donated a 4 night stay at an oceanfront resort for the auction, but also bid on several of the auction items. Overall, the couple enjoys supporting great causes such as Teams in Training which contributes funds to leukemia research.

 “It’s important that we all come together and find ways to support and help one another,” said Dave Lewis. “Giving does not have to be financial; it can also be done by volunteering at your local church or homeless shelter. Anyone can find their own way of giving back this holiday season to help those who need it most.”

HFC is doing their part in giving back. This year, the company launched the Million Dollar Franchise Event to encourage veterans of the United States Military to pursue the American Dream of starting their own business. The event grants unprecedented discounts off the purchase of a Budget Blinds or Tailored Living franchise with the goal of reaching $1,000,000 in total discounts.

Organizing by Seasons: Tips and Tricks to Easy & Efficient Garage Storage

Stowing and retrieving decorations, sports equipment, seasonal gear, and other items that are only used at certain points throughout the year can be a complicating and annoying task if your belongings are difficult to get to. One way to make this a much easier process is to organize your items by season and usage. Once you have everything categorically sorted, the next thing you want to think about is where and how you will store these items for the easiest access. 
Many homeowners find that the garage is the best area in their home to store their seasonal equipment because it is out of the way, but not so far out of the way to make it inaccessible when needed. According to the US Department of Energy, 25 percent of people with two-car garages don’t park any cars in there and only 32% park a single car. Based on this data, we can surmise that the majority of Americans use their garages as a storage or work space, maybe both. To get the most out of your garage storage space take these tips and tricks into account when planning out a new, or updating an existing, garage design.
Garage cabinets
  • While garage cabinetry is not a new concept, custom cabinetry designed specifically to fit the individual needs of your family is far and away better than any generic cabinetry you can find in a store. Tailored Living can customize your garage storage cabinets to fit whatever seasonal objects and items you wish. They are perfect for storing seasonal sports equipment and gear. 
  • Gridwalls, if you aren’t aware, are designed to hold anything and everything against the walls of your garage. These garage storage devices are metallic grids that, once affixed on the wall, can be outfitted to hold anything from a box of tennis balls to your mountain bikes! 
Overhead storage
  • Probably the most underused and underrated of all storage devices for a garage, overhead storage can be the perfect solution for seasonal decorations that you will only use a few months out of the year. Overhead storage will keep your items up and out of the way, but still easily accessible when you need them.   
Each and every homeowner has a different vision of what they want their garage to look like and how they want it to be used. Tailored Living can help you turn this vision into reality, give them a call today!
