In the recent edition of Entrepreneur Magazine, the publisher posted their list of hottest franchise categories for 2021. The Glass Guru was listed among other top franchises in the Home Improvement category. The pandemic and the prevailing economic climate did have some impact on this list.
We’ve included several categories that haven’t appeared here for years, including automotive services, cleaning and restoration, home improvement, tech services, and tutoring — all of which were largely deemed essential during shutdowns in 2020, or were able to quickly pivot their models to keep doing business.”

The article The Hottest Franchise Categories of 2021 breaks down the franchise space and includes Entrepreneur’s top franchises in the following categories.
- Automotive Services
- Home Improvement
- Tech Services
According to Herold, “Many people spent more time at home than ever before in 2020, so home improvement projects became popular. Franchises offering in-person home improvement services have had to adjust to the “new normal” in order to make customers comfortable— with some even pivoting to virtual consultations. Those that have done so successfully should see a bright year ahead.”
With people spending more time than ever at home in 2020, it should be no surprise that home improvement (home services) was one of the top categories. Here at The Glass Guru, we never like to say “recession proof”, but the brand has proven to be economically resilient during some difficult times, including the Great Recession and the COVID-19 pandemic. The Glass Guru had positioned itself to be adaptable and flexible prior to the pandemic, and that played dividends for the brand in 2020 and continues to do so today..
The shift in the brand’s operating procedures, a digital transformation that’s been in the works for several years, and the hard and diligent work of The Glass Guru’s franchise teams and corporate leadership team have allowed the company to sustain record-setting revenue levels for 2020 and 2021. The brand’s franchisees even gave The Glass Guru brand the highest rating in franchise owner satisfaction the company has ever seen. For savvy business owners who are considering getting into the space, the article The Hottest Franchise Categories of 2021 definitely outlines some of the best categories in franchising today. The article validates the incredible opportunity that is available in the home services category, and in particular, the incredible opportunity that awaits The Glass Guru franchise owners in the months and years to come.
