Tim, Franchise Owner
Hello! Thank you for visiting our website. My name is Tim Novak, and I am the owner of Budget Blinds of Mequon. After working in Corporate America for 19 years as well as the US Army Reserve for 20 years, I left all that and opened a Budget Blinds franchise in 2008. In spring of 2015, we opened our office/showroom on Executive Drive in Mequon. Kathy is our full-time sales consultant, and she works with our customers in their homes or businesses to select the perfect window covering to meet a customer's function, style and budget requirements. Cindy and Stephanie are our office administrators and responsible for scheduling appointments for Kathy and me, tracking customer orders, bookkeeping, scheduling installations, and a variety of other essential tasks. Terry and Rob handle installations; both are master installers - each with 20+ years of experience. We all work hard to provide our customers with great products and service at the best price. We look forward to working with you!
Kathy, Design Consultant
Hi! My name is Kathy, and I am a design consultant with Budget Blinds of Mequon.
I’m from the Milwaukee area and have lived here my entire life. I have two beautiful daughters that are grown. One lives in Minnesota, and one resides here in Wisconsin with her husband of 7 years. My Hobbies are decorating and spending quality time with my family and friends. It's a pleasure working for a company that I love. I’ve worked at Budget Blinds since the summer of 2014, and before that, I worked in the window covering industry for 10 years. I take pleasure in helping clients choose the final details in window coverings and treatments for a project - completely covering all the windows with exciting and beautiful window treatments in their new home, or just bringing current window treatments up to date. If you’re looking for new ideas, moving, or simply want to complete a room with blinds, shades, shutters or drapery treatments, we have a product for every budget. I hope to meet with you soon!
Stephanie, Administrative Service
Hello, my name is Stephanie and I am part of the office administration team. I was born and raised in the Milwaukee area and I live in Germantown with my husband of 17 years and our 2 daughters. My hobbies include spending time with my family doing fun things like hiking, entertaining ourselves with family movie nights and we are very active in our church. I have been in the customer service and sales industry for over 20 years. I love working with people and being part of a team. Some of my responsibilities include scheduling appointments for Tim and Kathy, book keeping, invoicing and other essential tasks. I look forward to the completion of the showroom which will enable me to offer further assistance.
After years of working out of our homes and vans, in April 2015, we opened an office/showroom in Mequon! We are currently in the process of building the showroom and plan to have it mostly completed by the end of 2015. Our Hunter Douglas display is ready; it shows off the great quality and beauty of the Hunter Douglas window covering products. The address is 6100 W. Executive Drive, Suite E in Mequon. The showroom hours are 9AM - 4:00 PM, Monday-Friday - or just about any other time by appointment. If you are in the area, stop in, say hi to Stephanie and Cindy and pick up a free Budget Blinds Design Guide and other literature. As always, we offer to bring the showroom to you by meeting with you in your home or business, and we can do that at nearly anytime that fits your schedule!
We currently run two vans for in-home and in-business consultations and one installation van. We are ready to serve you!
