Gotcha Covered, the leader in custom window treatment across the U.S. and Canada, was recently named a Top Low-Cost Franchise and Top Recession-Proof Franchise for 2023 by independent franchise research firm Franchise Business Review. 

“We’re committed to helping Gotcha Covered franchise owners thrive while serving their customers and their communities,” said Paul Linenberg, president of Gotcha Covered. “Our strategy for success is based on empowering franchise owners with a proven, industry-leading support system. We’re proud that we can offer them exceptional value while also delivering extensive training, innovative technology and essential one-on-one support.”

With an emphasis on end-to-end consultations, Gotcha Covered provides homeowners and businesses with the best in soft and hard window treatments, including a variety of blinds, draperies, and smart solutions. Gotcha Covered is part of the Five Star Franchising platform of home service 

Gotcha Covered franchise owners were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training and support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, culture, and financial opportunity.

“While no business is 100% recession-proof, these franchise businesses have demonstrated that they are highly recession-resistant based on historical performance,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. 

“There are also a number of very solid business opportunities out there that can provide the satisfaction and perks of business ownership but don’t require a huge financial investment. Approximately one-third of the franchise companies we survey have initial investments starting under $100K.
