The fact that there really was something unique about it (The Glass Guru franchise opportunity). I wanted to do something different. There was nobody else doing the moisture-removal part, and that’s something that stood apart from the rest.Michael Kugler , Austin, TX
I can’t be more pleased! I’ve even tried to contain the growth of my company. The opportunity is there. All the training has been wonderful. I felt like I had a great grasp on what I was going to be doing once I left the training facility (The Glass Guru HQ.)Eric Helus , Colorado Springs, CO
100% happy with the results so far! growth has been great, and I’m only looking to grow more in the future. The training and support has been great for the past 4 years. The Glass Guru is a great low-cost option for a franchise.Mitch Ritey , Indy North, IN
You guys have been awesome! I opened up our store a month and a half ago, almost two months now. Right out of the gate, I’ve gotten calls, I’ve done service work. Just today, I’ve gotten 3 phone calls, and all of them looking for moisture-removal, leading to other business.Frank Menchaca , El Paso, TX
The support is awesome! Everybody at home office does a great job. We’re looking to grow (even) moreErik Hilger , Charleston, SC
The training and support is amazing! they’ve been there for me any time I’ve needed anything. It’s a great (franchise) opportunity. I believe that this company is poised to grow. I think we’re very small compared to where we’re going to be someday, and I think it’s a great time to get into it.Dale Anderson , Melborne, FL
I’ve grown slowly… I started out by myself. I tell people that I was profitable in the first 30 days. I don’t know too many businesses that can say that! If you are going to do it (The Glass Guru), do it, and do it right. Dedicate the time to it, it’s a business.Ben Smith , Baton Rouge, LA
I’m extremely happy with the results I’ve seen so far from the business. I’m excited to finish the year out to see where I end up. The training I’ve received from The Glass Guru has been top-notch… extremely pleased with it.Chris Allman , Springfield, IN
