Beating the sun with elite customer service & superior window fashions

Our Story

SunCoast Blinds was founded in 1992 by Bens’ father, Gene. Starting as young as 12 years old, Ben used to help his father with installations during his summer visits to Florida. As Ben got older and moved down to Florida they joined forces and became a full-time father/son team. Gene is now enjoying his retirement while Ben continues to grow the SunCoast brand.

SunCoast Blinds prioritizes quality products, professional installations and the customer experience above all else. This has been the foundation of SunCoast Blind’s work since its inception. This is the reason why we are not tied to one specific brand, instead of selecting the best product for each specific need. We always make sure to educate our customers so they can make the best selection for their home.

Today SunCoast Blinds has a showroom in Bonita Springs, just 2 miles from the beach and a franchise store in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

Our Team

Ben Crotteau

OWNER

Ben moved down from Indiana to join forces with his dad 1999. Since then, he has become an expert within the window fashion industry, focusing on his main products- shutters and shades. If you’re asking Ben what sets him and SunCoast Blinds apart, he will most likely say his success comes from answering his phone and always calling back. When he doesn’t answer his phone he’s most likely working out, barbequing a giant steak or spending quality time with his family.

Pernilla Crotteau

CMO

Pernilla moved to United States from Sweden in 2015 after meeting Ben. As our administrative person she will keep you up to date on social media, marketing and do a lot of paper work. When she’s not hiding in the office, she is most likely spending time with her family, working out with Peloton or taking a course of some variety.  

 

 

Matthew Kirouac

SHOP MANAGER

Matt is a rare Naples native and joined SunCoast Blinds as an installer in 2014. Since then, he has become an invaluable part of our team with his eye for details, customer service and installing qualities. There is nothing that’s going to get pass his quality control unless it’s perfect. In his free time, he likes to go fishing, riding his motorcycle and hike with his dogs.

Heath Briggs

INSTALLATION SPECIALIST

Heath was previously working as a professional cleaner of the soft fabric treatments.  We were lucky to have him join our SunCoast team as an installer in 2020. Since then, he has brought his excellent work ethic and drive to getting things done correctly. He’s not only good at installing shutters, he’s also an enthusiastic RC-car builder and loves a good car show.

Krista Porter

INSTALLER

Krista is born and raised in Bonita Springs and has been with SunCoast Blinds since 2021. Her many years in the service industry gives you a first-class customer experience. When she’s not hard working for us, she loves to go fishing, visit art shows and spend time with her family.

Our Cause

Raising money, helping kids in need through Shop with a Cop

SunCoast Blinds is passionate about supporting the work of The Lee County Sheriff’s Office Bonita Springs Community Policing Unit annual Christmas Charity Fundraiser.

All money collected benefits needy elementary students of Bonita Springs. These students enter an essay contest and are selected by teachers and deputies from the Community Policing Unit. The money raised last year benefited 18 students selected to Shop with a Cop at Target. For Christmas season 2022, SunCoast Blinds has set a goal of doubling the number of kids who get to participate.

“Growing up I was a recipient of programs like this so I can’t explain how much something like this means to me personally. Additionally, the positive interaction the kids get to have with the officers can be life-changing” Says Ben Crotteau, President of SunCoast Blinds.

We encourage our clients to help us fight childhood poverty in our area with a little bit of Christmas cheer through this program.
