Survey Results: The Glass Guru – October 2021
The Glass Guru brand nearly eclipsed the brand’s highest scores received on the FBR Franchise Satisfaction Survey from the prior year, receiving a Franchise Satisfaction Index (FSI) score of 75.2. The Glass Guru’s recent score clearly transcended the 2022 FBR Benchmark for Franchise Satisfaction, as well as the collective FSI score for the home service category as a whole, 71.9.
While the pandemic impacted various business sectors differently, the last 18 months have clearly demonstrated the inherent strengths of the franchise business model. The old franchise adage of ‘being in business for yourself, but not by yourself’ has never been more important. Thanks to fast innovations, significant support, and responsive crisis management, many franchise brands have emerged stronger from the pandemic, and that is reflected in high franchisee satisfaction.”

Looking back at 2021, it’s now clear they achieved their goal in multiple respects. Up over $10m (25%) in systemwide revenue compared to 2020, also a record year, the organization boasts a +69.3% total increase in cumulative invoiced revenue in the previous 5 years. The brand also added 9 new franchise locations during 2021, starting the new year with 85 operating stores. Breaking into the top ranks for systemwide earnings, The Glass Guru ranked #396 on the Franchise Times 2021 Top 400 list.
