Angela Conroy | Founder| Sales
Angela first arrived in Boca Raton in 1981, when Boca was still just a sleepy little college town. IBM was the largest employer in the area, and FAU students were a good majority of the population.
She came here from the northeast at the young age of 22 with just two suitcases, $250 in her pocket and a ride; but that’s not all… She had a strong determination ‘to make it on her own’ and an even stronger need to survive.
Within days, she was able to secure a used bicycle for transportation and an apartment with two other college girls off campus (luckily $185 was enough to cover her share of the rent for a month in Boca back then!).
Working her way through college part-time in the evenings, she worked an office job during the day and waiting tables in a local diner by weekends. Life was tough back then, but she stuck it out and finally did get her business degree from FAU in 1987.
Shortly after graduation, Angela met her soul mate and soon to be, dear husband. She decided it was time to take another leap of faith, and ventured out on her own once again, and launched All Kinds of Blinds, but this time she wasn’t alone. Her husband Phil was by her side, supporting her all the way and even becoming her full-time installer.
Twenty-one years later, with her husband and son installing blinds, and 85% of their business with loyal, repeat customers, many of whom have become dear friends over the years, she doesn’t see herself or her business slowing down anytime soon.
Although IBM has long since moved out of Boca, her business has grown as rapidly as FAU, and the City of Boca have, and her desire to continue serving her community is stronger than ever.
