The Glass Guru Franchise Information

Business Model

Franchise owners rapidly deploy their franchise operations, with consistent and meaningful help along the way. The Glass Guru offers a diverse array of products and services, and squarely positions the company in both home maintenance/repair and home improvement categories. This ensures that franchise owners have a solid foundation of meaningful business opportunities over time, regardless of external economic conditions. The typical customer base has few limitations… every owner of real property (residential or commercial) either does, or will eventually need The Glass Guru’s services!

Key Benefits

The Glass Guru franchise owners have the benefit of having operations with a relatively low fixed-cost structure, and little to no inventory requirements. Staffing is minimal, and infinitely scalable with the size of the operation, ensuring that labor costs are truly a variable cost. Franchise fees start at just $17,600, and most locations can be started with around $65,000 in liquid capital. Fixed costs like vehicles and physical locations are meant to be scaled up, and directly proportional with the growth of the franchise location(s) over time, creating great positive cash-flow opportunities.

Additionally: 

  • In-Demand Core Services – Ensure that your new business is built to last. The Glass Guru’s products and services have proven to be in high-demand, regardless of the current economic conditions. Every owner of real property (residential or commercial) either does, or will eventually need our services! Glass repair is an extremely high-priority repair.
  • Get Started in a “Sleeper” Industry – There is a conspicuous lack of recognized providers in our space, leaving a great opportunity in every market to rapidly grow market-share.
  • We’re Different – The Glass Guru is the ONLY company in the space to offer the entire array of solutions to our customers…. Glass & window restoration, repair, and replacement.
  • No Industry Experience Required – Our most successful franchise owners DID NOT have any glass / window industry experience before becoming franchise owners. Our ideal candidates come to the table with BUSINESS experience, not glass experience.
  • Franchise Satisfaction – Year after year, The Glass Guru ranks as one of the best franchisors in terms of franchise owner satisfaction.
  • Top Low-Cost Franchise Opportunity – Get started for around $65K.
