Hi my name is Donald Franks and I started Shade One Awnings in 2002 with one pick-up truck and my grandmothers basement. Seriously, that first year we stored the retractable awnings in her basement and when we needed to put one in or take one out, we had to remove the small basement window completely and carefully pass the awnings between the basement and the driveway. The following year I rented some commercial space and made my grandma very happy. For the next four years, I subcontracted every awning installation I could find from dealers and contractors all over New Jersey and New York City. It was during those years that I established myself as an expert with motorized awnings.
In 2006, after receiving positive feedback from customers that hired us for installations, SunSetter invited us to be one of their first authorized dealers in New Jersey. It was an incredible opportunity and challenge to maintain the corporate standards of a national brand. My greatest business achievement is the preservation of this relationship after so many years. Today, we are categorized as a high volume dealer with many trucks on the road, a proper warehouse, a showroom and many more happy grandmothers sitting under our SunSetter awnings all over New Jersey.
