The Glass Guru franchise organization recently congratulated nearly a third of the organization’s franchise locations for hitting record monthly revenue milestones for their respective franchises for June 2020. The organization as a whole also saw June 2020 being the highest aggregate monthly revenue amount achieved since the company began franchising back in 2007! What’s interesting is that this is occurring during the tumultuous and uncertain times of COVID-19. It’s not surprising at all to the leadership team at The Glass Guru.
The company established itself as an economically resilient brand at the onset. The Glass Guru started to offer franchise opportunities in the midst of the Great Recession! Since that time, the organization has grown to over 75 franchises. Each year, the organization has strong numbers, seeing gains in network-wide revenues, and with most locations seeing consistent year-over-year growth, regardless of the prevailing economic conditions at the time. It all comes down to the fact that as a whole, home service franchises historically do well in turbulent times. Consumers may pull back on spending in other areas of their lives, but spending on the care and maintenance of their homes is always a priority.
There are several reasons that the company is weathering the pandemic economy better than many others. At the onset, the franchisor took steps to open a robust channel of communications with their franchisees about how to best mitigate the issues facing franchises during the pandemic. There were webinars several times a week, and in most cases, franchisees had the resources and a solid plan to ensure business continuity. Glass and glazing has been consistently considered part-and-parcel to the health and safety of the home. This means The Glass Guru has been an “essential business” from the start. Another critical factor that The Glass Guru’s management team believes to be a driving force in the company’s momentum is the fact that many homeowners were forced to work from home during the lockdowns imposed by the states. This forced homeowners to take stock of their mounting home maintenance and home repair projects, and built up “pent-up demand” for the company’s products and services.
While the COVID-19 crisis continues to be a national and global concern, increasing sales revenues from April through June has demonstrated there is no shortage of consumer demand for our services. Even in trying times such as these, home and business owners continue to maintain and update their properties and The Glass Guru locations are doing a great job taking care of their customers and staff, taking proper safety precautions as we get the job done…
The team at Headquarters couldn’t be more proud of the way each franchise has stepped up and risen to the challenge of thriving and growing in this turbulent economy. The second half of 2020 presents an incredible opportunity to continue this momentum! We look forward to supporting our franchises and sharing more success stories next month.”
