I am excited to announce that Budget Blinds CEO, Chad Hallock, will be appearing on CBS’s popular reality TV show Undercover Boss! Each week, Undercover Boss 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. The episode featuring Chad will have him trading in his suit for a Budget Blinds polo shirt as he works hands on in the blind manufacturing process and then goes door to door, taking part in customer consultations and blind installations.
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 furnishings franchise in North America. We’re celebrating our 20th anniversary this year so the timing couldn’t be better to commemorate this achievement by participating in Undercover Boss!
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 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 at 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.”
Tune in to CBS Friday, April 13 at 8pm PT/ET, to experience Chad’s journey first-hand and to find out why Undercover Boss recently broke viewership records in its time slot!
