If you know nothing about blinds…

Franchisees join Apollo Blinds from a wide range of different fields – so it provides each franchisee with a customised training plan that matches their DIY skills, product knowledge and business experience. After the initial training, you will receive ongoing training and support in whatever areas you need – product information, business growth, installation techniques, marketing, etc.

What you’ll do

Our franchisees are focused on growing their businesses by offering a professional, knowledgeable and friendly service in their local areas. This starts with the home consultation, where you’ll advise on the best products, fabrics and finishes for the customer’s specific needs. Once we’ve manufactured their order, you’ll return to the customer’s home to install their fabulous new window covering. Alongside these day-to-day activities, you’ll also engage in marketing activity with the support of Apollo Blinds’ expert marketing team and extensive suite of promotional materials. You’ll monitor responses to these activities, as well as keep a close eye on your flourishing business’s finances.


Stuart is the first to admit he fell into Apollo Blinds, having previously been a personal trainer and also a project manager in the exhibition industry. During lockdown, he started working for his friend who owned the franchise for Wokingham – within a couple of years, he had bought out his friend. He says it’s the best thing he’s ever done.
