Team Leaders Rob & Jill Cooper
Rob and Jill Cooper are the very proud owners of Budget Blinds Edmonton & St. Albert. Both left their corporate careers 10 years ago to open their franchise and haven’t looked back since. “The phone started ringing with our very first marketing promo and our business has grown consistently every year since we opened!” The couple finds it amusing how often people comment (usually with wry surprise)how well they work together despite being married (for 12 years). Jill says, “We’ve always had fun working together and I think our skill sets really complement each other.”. Around the office Jill is known as “the colour girl” while Rob is “the detail guy”

Consultant Jesse L'Heureux
