The Glass Guru recently welcomed a new member of the organization’s growing family of franchise owners. The company announced last month the transfer of ownership at the West Edmonton, AB franchise location. Kevin Truong acquired the franchise territory from the previous franchise owner, Mr. Mike Down. Mr. Truong has been a resident of Edmonton for 35 years. He comes to The Glass Guru having over 15 years of prior experience working with a stair and railing contractor where he gained critical experience in the home services category, specifically in sales and management. Truong, who’d had an increased interest in recent years to open his own business, was introduced to The Glass Guru and the previous franchise owner by a friend.
I wanted to start my own business, and after hearing about The Glass Guru, I knew I was interested in getting into this franchise business. I’ve never owned a franchise business before… I am excited to have control over my own business. Once I’d purchased the franchise, the team at The Glass Guru headquarters was proactive in communicating with me during the pre-launch phase, and the materials presented during training adequately prepared me for the launch of my franchise location As a longtime resident of Edmonton, AB I am inspired and fulfilled by the growth of our city, and I hope to play a small role in the community’s continued success and am committed to treating all of my customers in a fair and honorable manner” Kevin Truong | Franchise Owner – =The Glass Guru of West Edmonton, AB
The transfer of ownership in West Edmonton, AB is one of two recent transfers for the Roseville, CA-based franchise company. The Glass Guru also saw a transfer of ownership in their Colorado Springs, CO location as well. Add to that a good flow of new candidates coming into the organization in 2020 as the owners of new franchise locations, and the news is looking good for The Glass Guru. In spite of the economic uncertainty caused by the pandemic, The organization is growing in terms of franchise locations and revenues, having recently posted several record-setting months in 2020. Truong has high-hopes for his new business venture, setting his sights on an aggressive growth plan. His timing is perfect, as glass and glazing, windows and doors all seem to have continued demand across North America, regardless of the uncertainty seen in other categories.
