Our History

Ken Petersen and Tom Brady opened the first Country Clutter store in August 1991 in Vacaville, California. Their unique store, built around traditional street themes and a cozy home environment, was a hit from the start. In less than one year, the Petersen-Brady partners established a second and third store, and began plans to franchise the Country Clutter concept. It was at this time that Scott Jacobs joined Ken and Tom as a third partner. As a result of their own hands-on experience, Ken, Tom and Scott have built the Country Visions franchise with a unique understanding of the tools necessary to run a successful business.


In 2004 Country Visions added the Apricot Lane store concept to the franchise. Our Apricot Lane stores feature many of the same lines as Country Clutter, while offering the opportunity to carry more contemporary products and market to a broader range of consumers.


Today, Country Visions, Inc. includes more than 60 franchised stores operating in 25 states across the country. Lead by Ken Petersen (CEO), Scott Jacobs (President), and Tom Brady (COO), Country Visions is dedicated to the strength of its brands and to the success of every franchisee.



"The creativity and expertise Country Visions marketing department provides in the themes, materials and messages gives each store an immediate, significant advantage over each and every competitor." - Bill H of Lewisburg, West Virginia


"Franchise support for novice business operators is essential and Country Visions is always available with advice and suggestions." - Bob S of Henderson, Nevada
