Mack Moore, franchise owner of Budget Blinds®of North Winston-Salem, is in his fourth year of ownership and is still as excited about the business as the day he started.
Moore previously had careers in healthcare and advertising, and when he sought to purchase a franchise, Budget Blinds®rose to the top of the list. Budget Blinds’®values – high-quality products, exceptional warranty and superior customer service – matched his personal values. He also wanted a business to grow and stay in his family. His daughter, Maggie Setzer, manages his office, schedules installations and handles inquiries from clients.
Budget Blinds®also has a strong national veterans’ support program, Homes for our Troops. Mack’s installer, Dan Reid, is a veteran whose experience teaching engineering classes at our local community college enhances his ability to provide expert measurement and installation services.

“Parents should know that window treatment cords can pose a hazard,” said Moore.“We educate homeowners on child-friendly options for their window treatments. Cordless, Motorization and Home Automation are definitely favorites, and advances in technology help keep motorization affordable.”
“As a Budget Blinds®franchisee, I get to work with new and innovative products that change the window treatment industry,” said Moore. “From motorization and home-automation to our newest line, Design Ink™, we offer excellent product lines from leading manufacturers that include our No-Questions-Askedhome warranties – which are unequalled.”
Right now, home automation has never been easier. As a Certified Lutron Dealer, BBNWS can combine the latest in fashionable window coverings with ease and safety of home automation.
