APRIL 5, PLANO, TX. – The Glass Guru was identified by independent franchise research firm, Franchise Business Review, as being one of only 50 franchises to qualify as a 2022 Top Low-Cost Franchise.
The Glass Guru is a nationally recognized franchised glass company specializing in restoring, repairing, and/or replacing residential and light commercial glass. With 85 + locations in North America and Canada, the company has been growing at a rapid rate. The Glass Guru has become “The local glass shop you can trust’ by focusing on a neighborly approach.
The Glass Guru Franchisees leverage national branding and heavily localized resources to find their footing in their communities and grow their businesses by targeted marketing and word of mouth. That in conjunction with a scalable business model that has virtually no required inventory, allows for franchise owners to get started with a very reasonable investment and to then grow the business using cash-flow rather than seeing additional capitalization. It for this reason that the company is regularly cited as a low-cost opportunity by a number of reputable business publications, including Franchise Business Review.
We are proud to be recognized as a Top Low-Cost Franchise opportunity. There are tremendous opportunities in home services and we love being an entry point to the glass and window industry for non-trades people with solid business, sales, or marketing backgrounds. While most of our new owners finance the bulk of their startup costs, it’s a relatively low cost compared to many other businesses with similar earning potential. Due to the low overhead and cost of business, combined with a rapid ramp-up, most of our new stores are cash-flow positive in their few months which is always exciting to see.”

Franchise Business Review (FBR) provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. FBR publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in quarterly reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.
Nearly 11,000 franchisees representing over 135 low-cost brands participated in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey over 18 months. The brands that were named to the list of the best low-cost franchises to buy had to have high franchisee satisfaction and an investment of under $100,000 at the time their franchisees participated in FBR’s satisfaction survey.
The Glass Guru’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including training & support, operations, franchisor/franchisee relations, and financial opportunity.
One of the most common myths around buying a franchise is that it’s too expensive. But what many people don’t know is that there are a number of very solid business opportunities out there that can provide the satisfaction and perks of business ownership but don’t require a huge financial investment,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Approximately one-third of the franchise companies we survey have initial investments starting under $100K, and with financing, many can be started for as little as $15-$20K, with a few options starting under $10K. More importantly, the franchises that made this year’s list of the Top Low-Cost Franchises have average owner satisfaction 15% higher than our industry benchmark, making them all excellent options for entrepreneurs considering franchise ownership.”
