The Glass Guru is pleased to announce that current franchise owner, Mr. Erik Hilger, has expanded his Charleston, SC franchise territory. Hilger made the decision to “lock-up” the areas surrounding his already successful Charleston location, adding more than 12 new zip codes to his existing territory. With the expansion, The Glass Guru of Charleston will now service areas like Summerville, Hanahan, Ladson, Moncks Corner, Goose Creek, Awendaw, Cordesville, Hollywood, Huger, and Ravenel within his location’s “area of primary responsibility”. Erik graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Organizational Leadership and Supervision., and has called Charleston home since 2003. He came into The Glass Guru franchise system back in 2011.
The Glass Guru attracted me because it was an opportunity to run my own business and I saw the services we offer having real value to the client.” – Erik Hilger | Owner, The Glass Guru of Charleston, SC
Since becoming a franchise owner with The Glass Guru, he’s been able to grow a strong business out of his Charleston, SC location, building a great team along the way. As he’s grown the business, Hilger and his team have been able to create an expanding and increasingly happy customer base. The demand for The Glass Guru’s services began to take him outside his previously acquired territory.
As Erik served more and more customers outside of Charleston proper, The Glass Guru’s brand grew in the area as well. Customers outside Charleston were seeking The Glass Guru’s products and services. In addition, we were seeing an increasing number of requests from franchise candidates just outside of Erik’s franchise territory wanting to purchase their own franchise location. With Erik’s success in Charleston, it only made sense that we reach out and work with him to expand the Charleston, SC location to accommodate the additional demand” – Dan Frey | CEO, The Glass Guru Franchise Systems
Please join us in congratulating Mr. Erik Hilger for his recent acquisition, and to wish him continued success in his business endeavors..
