The Tailored Living Franchise Support System

When an individual is seeking to start their own franchise business, one of the main things they should consider is the support system a given franchise company has in place. Running your own business can seem like a daunting venture so it’s important to feel that you’re not alone.

Over the years, Tailored Living has been steadily growing its franchisee family. Today, it’s over 100 strong thanks in part to an established and tried system that has helped franchisees succeed.

At Tailored Living, a new franchisee can expect a thorough support system that begins with a business coach who is there to guide them through any difficulties they may experience. They also have a wide network of franchisee peers that they can turn to for advice. Additional support includes frequent webinars and training sessions.

“We want to make sure our franchisees feel they always have someone there to help guide them through any problems,” said Chad Hallock, CEO of Tailored Living. “It’s one of the things that have allowed us to grow into one of the top home organization franchises in the nation.”

Tailored Living believes military veterans make excellent franchise owners because they are already trained to work effectively within support systems. Because of this, its parent company, Home Franchise Concepts, launched the Million Dollar Franchise Event last year to encourage veterans to become business owners. The event offers a $5,000 discount off the purchase of a Tailored Living franchise with the goal of granting $1,000,000 in total discounts. For more information, visit www.HFCsupportsvets.com.

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.

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.

Home Franchise Concepts Enlists Lisa Rosser to Help Match Military Veterans with Business Opportunities

Home Franchise Concepts (HFC) – the parent company of home improvement franchises Budget Blinds and Tailored Living – has enlisted military veteran and veteran business advocate Lisa Rosser to help reach and educate the veteran community on the benefits of owning a franchise business. Using Lisa Rosser’s expert advice, as well as personal and professional experience, HFC hopes to give retired service men and women an exciting new platform where they can apply their military training.

Lisa Rosser served 10 years of active duty in the U.S. Army and was involved in several military engagements, including the Gulf War.  Rosser later served in the U.S. Army Reserves for 12 years, where her career took her from operations to human resource management. Compiling all her personal and professional experiences in the military, Lisa Rosser founded The Value of a Veteran in 2007; an organization that teaches businesses principles in veteran hiring and retention. Today, Lisa takes part in workshops, seminars, and consulting engagements for programs that help build futures for veterans such as the VetFran program from the International Franchise Association.

“Working together with HFC, we can inform more veterans on the benefits of owning their own franchise business and ultimately open the door to a fulfilling career path for them after active service,” said Lisa Rosser. “Veterans have so much to offer the business world because of their military experience. Their focus and desire to succeed make them outstanding candidates for on opportunity such as this.”

Lisa Rosser was primarily brought on board to provide strategic direction to HFC’s Million Dollar Franchise Event, scheduled to launch on Veteran’s Day November 11, 2013. The event seeks to honor veterans and make the American Dream of owning a business possible for them by granting substantial discounts off the purchase of a Budget Blinds or Tailored Living franchise system. With a history of supporting veterans and military-related causes, HFC seeks to grant at least 30 franchises to veterans totaling over 1 million dollars in discounts.

“The Million Dollar Franchise Event is our way of giving back to the military men and women that have sacrificed so much for our country,” said Chad Hallock, CEO of Home Franchise Concepts. “We believe the discipline, determination, and confidence they have gained during active duty has prepared them for a successful career as franchise business owners. With Lisa’s unique background and skillset, we hope to get that message across to veterans of all backgrounds and help them reach success by taking charge of their futures through business ownership.”

U.S. Navy Veteran Derek Harris Gives Thanks for the Opportunity to Start His Own Business

Derek Harris is veteran of the United States military, having served 6 years in the Navy. Like many other veterans, he was faced with the question of what to do with his life after active duty. The United States is a nation where its citizens are free to pursue the American Dream. Derek Harris did just that and started his own Tailored Living franchise business. Looking back, he is very thankful to have had the opportunity.

“One of the greatest things about this country is that we are all free to pursue our aspirations,” said Derek Harris. “Whatever we can dream up, we can make happen. In my case, I’m very thankful to be able to run my own Tailored Living business!”

Veterans often make ideal franchise business owners because the skills they obtain while in the military can be directly applied to the business environment. These skills include discipline, leadership, determination and teamwork. Plus, franchise businesses have set structures and support systems similar to those in place in the military.

“When I was in the Navy, we had an established protocol to follow in order to accomplish objectives,” said Derek. “We also had a team-oriented support system, something I’ve experienced from the Tailored Living corporate team that I’m thankful to have.”

As a way to give back and encourage veterans to become franchise business owners, Tailored Living has launched the Million Dollar Franchise Event which grants a significant discount off the purchase of a Tailored Living franchise. For more information please click here.

A Warm Thanks to Military Veterans from Tailored Living and Budget Blinds CEO Chad Hallock

Every year, the Thanksgiving holiday marks a time to reflect and give thanks to those who have enriched our lives and have helped us succeed. Whether they are friends, relatives or mentors, it is a great opportunity to extend our appreciation. This Thanksgiving, Budget Blinds and Tailored Living co-founder and CEO, Chad Hallock, would like to give thanks to one group in particular: veterans of the United States military.   

“I came from a very modest background and often struggled to make ends meet growing up,” said Chad Hallock. “I decided to take charge of my future and founded Budget Blinds with my brother and three close friends. Through hard work and dedication, we managed to grow it into a successful franchise business. We later founded its sister company Tailored Living. I truly believe that this was made possible in large part by the selfless sacrifices our veterans have made over the years to protect the American Dream.”

Since the birth of this nation, the proud members of the United States Armed Forces have indeed put everything on the line to ensure that we live in a country where every citizen is free to pursue their dreams. In Chad’s case, his dream was to start his own business and now he would like to make that dream possible for veterans as well. He and the other Tailored Living and Budget Blinds founders are doing this by launching the Million Dollar Franchise Event which grants significant discounts off the purchase of either franchise system.

“Launching the Million Dollar Franchise Event is our way of giving back to veterans. We want to give them the opportunity to live the American Dream of owning their own business; the same opportunity they helped give us when we founded Tailored Living and Budget Blinds,” said Chad Hallock.

This Thanksgiving, let’s all remember to give thanks to the brave veterans of the U.S. military for all they have done for this country. For more information on the Million Dollar Franchise Event, please click here.
