Blind Guys is South Africa’s fastest growing Blinds, Shutters, Awnings & Security Barrier re-seller and installation company. Servicing many locations throughout the country we strive to only supply our clients with the best quality products and professional service.

The Brand

Blind Guys was established in 2009 in Secunda, Mpumalanga and by February 2022 the group had grown to twenty-four franchised outlets.

The company aims towards a comprehensive national footprint and to be the provider of choice of its products and services throughout South Africa. It believes in enabling deserving individuals to become successful business persons in their own right.


Blind Guys sells and installs a range of high quality blinds, awnings, shutters, security gates and ancillary products to its customers in the residential and commercial sectors. The business is sold to be operated as a home-based business initially, but it is an explicit requirement that the franchisee opens a showroom in its protected territory within 2 years of signing the initial Franchise Agreement.

Key differentiators include the quality and wide range of Blind Guys’ products, the high degree of service delivery, the company’s competitive pricing and its know-how with regards to the products, installation,  aftersales service and effective marketing strategy.

Staff complement – franchisee plus 1 – 2 assistants; additional vehicles – driver/installer plus 1 – 2 assistants.


The franchisor shall provide the franchisee and its staff with 1 (one) week’s initial theoretical training including product knowledge, sales skills, business skills, administration and basic accounting, as well as intensive practical support during the first 2 (two) months from the commencement date.

External trainers may also be used to present specialist topics. Upon the completion of the training, successful candidates shall receive certificates confirming them as Blind Guys Approved Consultants.
