Meet the Owners!
"Both of us had 20+ year in corporate America before we decided to take the plunge into small business ownership. That was until 2004 when we started Budget Blinds. (Best decision ever!) After extensive training we opened our doors and have never looked back. Lynn runs the office, Bob does the selling and we've hired a team of top notch installers that complete the job. Lynn grew up in Worthington and Bob became a Buckeye when he moved here in 1992. Both are deeply involved with our family, community and church. We would be honored to work with you and we give every client our complete attention. Thank you for considering Budget Blinds for your window covering needs."
Since 2004, we have proudly served thousands of customers in Bexley, Pickerington, East Columbus and Reynoldsburg.

The "Fab Five" Founders
Our Budget Blinds National Convention is one of the highlights of the year. The 2016 Convention was held in Nashville. We have some amazing vendors always bring us new products and innovations in the window covering world. Here we are with the "Fab Five" founders as they are affectionately knows. Dave Lewis, Tony Forbes, Brent Hallock, (Bob and Lynn), Todd Jackson and Chad Hallock. You may have seen Chad on the CBS show "Undercover Boss". In 1992 these five guys each kicked in $5000 to start a new business and have grown it into the largest custom window covering franchise in the world. We now generate over $300 million in annual sales and have over 1000 franchisees in the US, Canada and Mexico. Proud to be part of this team!
When we were in sunny Southern California to visit family we stopped in a watched a taping of Wheel of Fortune. Vanna White has nothing on Lynn!
Hanging with The Property Brothers
One of our favorite perks of being a Budget Blinds owner is going to our National Convention. We get to hear all of the corporate updates, see the new innovative products from our vendors and learn from some top notch speakers. The 2013 convention was in Las Vegas and we got to meet HGTV's "Property Brothers", Drew and Johnathan Scott. And yes, they are that tall!
Budget Blinds does our best to be good members of the Central Ohio community. We donated the blinds for the "Habitat for Humanity" home in North Linden. Lynn was part of the "Build Like a Girl" project sponsored by Fox28 and ABC6. They asked for women owned companies to help with this home for a deserving young single mom and her daughter and Budget Blinds was glad to help.
Here is Ryan, one of our installers, putting the finishing touches on an octagon shaped wood shutter. Properly trained installers are critical to ensuring that our customers are totally satisfied with final outcome. From sales consultations to professional installation to service after the sale, Budget Blinds of Pickerington is your best choice for all of your window covering needs.
Lynn Meets Jon Bon Jovi
A few years ago we won a trip from Budget Blinds and stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Maui. (The operative word in that sentence is "won"...that's the only way we could have stayed at the Ritz!) One night we were all sitting in the lobby when Jon Bon Jovi and the rest of the band came in after a concert. After a little encouragement they came over and allowed us to take some photos of the band with our wives. Turns out he was a nice guy. Short, but a nice guy.
A great product is only as good the installation. We never use subcontractors to install our blinds and shades. All of our installers are well trained employees of our company. They don't get their own drill until Bob says so! Here Brad is installing exterior solar roller shades in a beautiful home in Hide Away Hills.
