The perfect franchise for couples!
Could you and your partner make the perfect
business partnership?

The Apollo Blinds Installation Franchise is the perfect opportunity for couples looking to start a successful business venture together. As franchisees you can reap the rewards and have a true work–life balance. Family commitments can easily be factored into your working day with this business opportunity.

Apollo Blinds is a very customer-focused business, so you have to be personable and able to get on with most people. It’s also about having an eye for design and what would look good in someone’s home – customers will rely on you for advice and guidance.

Apollo Blinds has experienced strong trading conditions, despite national lockdowns and other restrictions since March 2020 - because there has been a huge consumer appetite for home improvement. There is strong demand for quality, made-to-measure window blinds, shutters, awnings and curtains that are installed by experts.

Could you become an Apollo Blinds Installation Franchisee?

You will need to make good use of the training and support and don't be afraid to ask for help from its expert teams when and where they need it.

You will become the preferred retailer of window coverings in your area by showcasing products with confidence and communicating well with a variety of customers, representing the Apollo Blinds brand in a professional and friendly manner.

Even if you don’t have the DIY skills needed to install the products yet, full training and support is provided every step of the way!

The Apollo Blinds Franchise Opportunity:

Quite simply, Apollo Blinds have the widest collection of window blinds and plantation shutters in the industry, and they are very proud of the fact that they have the perfect solutions for every room in every home across the UK.

That means the focus of your day will revolve around helping customers to find exactly the right window blinds for them and then installing the blinds so that they are very happy with the products and service from Apollo Blinds.

New franchisees can get very busy very quickly, but most-successful franchisees have learned the importance of taking a little bit of time to plan their days effectively. For example, they plan sales appointments and installations in the same area on the same day to reduce costs and travel time and to increase productivity and profitability.

It may not make me a millionaire, but I have a great work–life balance.Andrew Micklewhite from Apollo Blinds Cardiff


No two days have ever been the same in the 24 years I have been with Apollo Blinds, and that is why I’m still as passionate about it as I was when I first started. The best part of what I do is helping my customers to find the right blinds for them. I love going into customers’ houses and making recommendations and then seeing the thrill on their faces when their blinds are installed.Amanda Hannan from Apollo Blinds Glasgow Shawlands


A franchise was the perfect platform for me because I have access to products that none of my competitors have. This has allowed me to achieve high order values because I’m selling and installing high-quality products.
