Local Couple Buy Back "roots"

LAFAYETTE, LOUISIANNA | Tuesday, July 06, 2004

Now, They Have Gotcha Covered �

This young couple headed out of town to build a financial future with Corporate America, but John and Wende Baudoin couldn’t escape the roots that “completed” them in the laid back town of Lafayette.

They claim they didn’t want to leave in the first place, but opportunities in business were scarce and securing the financial stability to raise a new family would have to come at the expense of abandoning the comforts of home. “There weren’t a lot of jobs available for us after college,” stated John Baudoin. “When the offer to join a major pharmaceutical company came along, it just seemed like the right thing to do.” His corporate success carried the young couple to many new homes across the country and each new territory made one thing perfectly clear; there’s no place like home. “We found ourselves giving up the proper pronunciation of our last names, just to fit in,” stated Wende. “One day, we just kind of looked at each other and knew we had to find a way to get back home.” The vehicle they chose is a nationally recognized home-based franchise concept called “Gotcha Covered.” The company specializes in the very latest window fashion treatments and is represented by individuals working out of their homes. Each franchisee is supplied with the latest window fashion accessories which are stored in their own custom van adorned with their new company logo and all of the name brand manufacturers they now represent. “This is a very exciting time for us,” stated John Baudoin. “We just completed our initial two week training in Dallas and we have just completed building our new home in Lafayette. “We have a great new business with products I know the people in this town are going to love and most importantly, we get to start eating great food again.” About “Gotcha Covered” “Gotcha Covered”, is headquartered in Carrollton, Texas, and is ranked the #2 franchise in its category by Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500. It is also recognized as 12 th in the 25 th Annual Franchise 500� Top Twenty New Franchise category. “Gotcha Covered”offers home-based and business to business franchises in the window fashion industry featuring Hunter Douglas, Kirsch, Bali, Levolor, and Graber. The parent company is Window Fashion Professionals, Inc.
