Christmas Decor is what's known as a complementary franchise. Unlike many franchise opportunities, Christmas Decor has the distinction of being a seasonally based business with the busiest times being October through January (approximately 100 days/year). The vast majority of Christmas Decor's almost 400 franchisees are involved in other businesses. Christmas Decor's services are cross sold to their existing clients. Conversely, new clients for Christmas Decor often become clients for their other businesses.
The company was founded in 1986 by Blake Smith. Most franchisors develop business models that help solve problems for their customers. Blake Smith certainly did this with Christmas Decor, but he also helped solve a problem for himself at the same time. Blake operated a landscaping company but he struggled to keep his loyal and trusty employees busy through the winter months. Then, one day, the lights went on. Literally.

Let’s ask Stu Benedict from Mississauga to share his experience as a Christmas Decor franchisee. Andrew, what has Christmas Decor done for you?
“Christmas Decor has been a fantastic add on to my core business. As a lawn care professional I was always looking for ways to keep my employees and equipment busy during the winter months. Christmas Decor has not only done that, but it has also turned out to be a profitable and fun addition to my business. My employees are happy to be busy during the winter months and they love stepping back to admire their own work when they light up the lights! I would highly recommend adding Christmas Decor if you currently have a good summer business and are looking to augment it with a great winter profit producer!”
