It’s not often we make health claims, especially being in the custom window treatment business. But according to Karena Durnell, franchise owner from Burlington, Ontario, she will live longer because she’s happier! Who are we to argue?

Karena joined Gotcha Covered 2 years ago after a successful career as an executive with a large retail brand. Her days and nights were filled with travel, traffic, and stress. She was missing all the fun things in life until her consultant introduced her to Gotcha Covered. Now she sleeps in her own bed, lunches with girlfriends, and gets to enjoy her life like never before.

Karena is exactly what we look for in a franchisee. She had no experience in the industry, but she brought with her a work ethic and great personality. And just like our other franchise owners, Karena happily takes along prospective franchise owners to give them a feel for a day in the life. It’s no wonder we have such a high closing ratio with a team like this to help.
