Home Franchise Concepts Remembers Veterans on the Anniversary of Pearl Harbor

  Co-founder of Home Franchise Concepts, Tony Forbes, Whose Father Was Stationed at Pearl Harbor During the Bombing, Gives Thanks to Service Men and Women 

This Saturday, December 7th, marks the 72nd anniversary of the Pearl Harbor bombing that saw 2,402 American soldiers killed and another 1,282 wounded. It was an event that sent shock waves through a nation and changed the trajectory of World War II.   

Home Franchise Concepts (HFC) – the parent company of home improvement franchise properties Budget Blinds and Tailored Living – would like to take a moment to remember the sacrifices that were made that day and thank veterans of all military backgrounds for what they’ve done for this country.

HFC’s strong ties to the military are due in large part to the company’s co-founder and Executive Vice President Tony Forbes. Tony comes from a military family; his brother currently serves in the U.S. Navy and his father is a veteran of World War II. In fact, Tony’s father, William J. Forbes, was on-site when Pearl Harbor was bombed in 1941 which is why the upcoming anniversary is close to his heart.

“My father passed away 10 years ago but I will always remember his stories of the events at Pearl Harbor,” said Tony Forbes. “On the anniversary of Pearl Harbor, it’s very important for us to remember the sacrifices that were made and the brave soldiers that were lost that day. It’s because of these sacrifices that we were able to build the United States into one of the greatest nations in the world.”

Tony Forbes believes that through the enduring and selfless efforts of our military over the years, we’ve all had the opportunity to live the American Dream of starting your own business. Tony himself has lived it, acting as a co-founder to Budget Blinds, Tailored Living, and their parent company HFC.

As a way of giving back, HFC launched the Million Dollar Franchise Event this year which grants veterans of all backgrounds substantial discounts off the purchase of a Budget Blinds or Tailored Living franchise. The idea is to reach $1,000,000 in total discounts. It is HFC’s way of giving veterans the opportunity to live the American Dream which they have fought so hard to protect.

“Coming from a military family, I’ve been close to the people who have laid it all on the line in service to this country,” said Tony Forbes.  “This is why the Million Dollar Franchise Event is so important to me. It presents the opportunity to give back to veterans.”

The 72nd anniversary of the Pearl Harbor bombing presents a moment to pause, honor, and give thanks to the veterans of the United States military. Tony Forbes and the rest of the HFC team believe we should all come together to give back in any way we can.

Cabinets, shelving and racks
  • You may be saying to yourself, I can get any of these items at IKEA or Home Depot, and while this is true, these generic substitutions for the real thing will not provide you with the level of closet organization that can be achieved with customized solutions.  
  •  What use do bins have in a closet? Well when they are customized pull-out bins from Tailored Living can be used as the perfect place to store dirty laundry – hidden and out of the way!
