In 2007, Tev Kelley was working as an installer for Budget Blinds, the home-based custom window-coverings franchise, when he quickly realized that he'd rather be an owner. At the time, he was living in Sheridan, Wyoming, but saw the chance to move back to his hometown of Cody, Wyoming, as a franchise owner.
"I liked that I didn't have to 'sell' anything," Kelley said. "I just had to go in, listen to the customer and then give them what they wanted. The sample books are amazing, and the product just sells itself."
