The Blind Men®. Started operating its first franchise in 2013, the success of The Blind Men chain is largely attributed to the hard-work and dedication of its original pioneering Franchisee. We have altered how the industry does business.

The Blind Men are proud of its many dedicated design consultants, installers and franchisees who exemplify and execute The Blind Men’s principles and standards of operations each and every day. Through their overwhelming commitment to the business and the chain’s dedication to exceptional quality, value, customer service and community leadership, The Blind Men have become the new standard in Canada’s Custom Window Coverings Industry.

The Blind Men Franchisees are supported in all aspects of their operations by an extensive range of services provided by The Blind Men and its team of professionals along with our manufacturing partners.
