The Glass Guru is pleased to announce the company’s latest franchise location opening in Johns Creek, GA. Franchise Owner Stan Gilbreath, along with his recently hired Office Coordinator Courtney Lenharr completed The Glass Guru’s Initial Franchise Training at the company’s headquarters Roseville, CA on July 10, 2020. The Glass Guru of Johns Creek is located in the northeastern portion of the greater Atlanta area. Stan Gilbreath comes to The Glass Guru with a long and distinguished career in the technology sector. He holds a BS in Computer Sciences and an MA in Applied Mathematics, both from Auburn University. Stan started his career as an application developer / programmer, where he quickly rose to not only be a technology leader, but a business leader whose “greatest joy was developing and cultivating business relationships with his customers, becoming a trusted advisor and the “go to” person to make things happen. Stan had been looking for an opportunity to start a new business venture for some time, looking at all different types of businesses. He ultimately chose The Glass Guru after doing his research, speaking with other franchise owners within the network, and participating in the Company’s Virtual Discovery Day process that the organization developed early on in response to COVID-19. When asked what led him to considering The Glass Guru as a business opportunity, and what ultimately drove his decision to move forward, Gilbreath responds:
I had been looking for a new business adventure, and had evaluated several private businesses, franchise opportunities, and startups. During my evaluation of The Glass Guru franchise, I was very impressed with the operational support that was provided for franchisees. Also, the marketing techniques, plans, and technologies provided a fantastic lead generation machine for each franchise. The product offerings, services, and professionalism associated with “The Glass Guru way” is a real differentiator with other glass service providers. Finally, the team at franchise headquarters sealed the deal. I came away impressed with their professionalism, knowledge, support, and family atmosphere!” Stan Gilbreath | Franchise Owner
After following the company’s proven franchise discovery process, Stan decided to move forward. He then began working with The Glass Guru’s team of franchise pros to move Stan and his location through the Franchise Opening Checklist. The goal is to ensure that franchise owners are ready to hit the ground running immediately upon their return from Initial Franchise Training. Stan was ready to get started when he arrived for Initial Franchise Training, already having pre-booked a week’s worth of estimates for him to run immediately upon his return to GA after training! When asked what excites him the most about opening his own Glass Guru franchise, Gilbreath responded “The ability to treat Customers like I want to be treated, to be my own boss, and to be the Trusted Advisor for my Customer base!” The leadership team at The Glass Guru is very optimistic about the outlook in the Johns Creek, GA territory. Franchise Owner Stan Gilbreath has demonstrated himself as the model franchise owner, working hard to be prepared for the challenges ahead. He has the mindset and the experience as an established business leader, who now brings his enthusiastic leadership to The Glass Guru organization. He’s sure to become one of the company’s franchise success stories over time. Stan and his team are very much looking forward to serving the community of Johns Creek, GA and the surrounding areas with all of The Glass Guru’s unique and in-demand services.
