The Glass Guru is happy to announce the addition of the organization’s newest franchise location in the State of Tennessee. Franchise Owner Brant Lanham completed the company’s Initial Franchise Training on Friday, February 28, 2020. This milestone marks the completion of a great deal of preparation and education conducted by Lanham in the preceding weeks and months, all in preparation for the launch of his new small business. Brant initially began looking at franchise ownership because he wanted to “be a leader, and grow a great team.” He already had franchise experience, with his current family ownership of a Totally Nutz franchise location. Additionally, unlike many of The Glass Guru’s current franchise owners, Brant came with industry experience, having worked as a home improvement salesperson for one of the larger replacement window brands in the USA. The alignment with The Glass Guru brand was apparent to Brant, because, while his industry experience will prove valuable, the company looks for business leadership as a more important asset than prior trade experience.
Professional skills that will help me succeed in this business include leadership, accountability, drive, and self-motivation. From speaking with Dan (The Glass Guru Founder and CEO) initially (during the franchise discovery process), The Glass Guru looks for owners who are focused on building the business and the team. That’s what I am good at and enjoy the most.” Brant Lanham – Franchise Owner, The Glass Guru of Hendersonville, TN
Lanham’s franchise location, The Glass Guru of Hendersonville, TN, is the company’s fifth franchise location in the state of Tennessee. After several years of focused recruiting in severa business and trade-friendly states, The Glass Guru is seeing this strategy paying great dividends.
While it’s been sufficiently demonstrated that The Glass Guru’s business model can thrive in any state or province (The Glass Guru currently has franchise locations in the USA and Canada), there are several states that boast incredibly business-friendly environments, along with a more-than-adequate demand for the great glass, window, and door products and services The Glass Guru offers our customers. Tennessee is no exception to this philosophy, which is why we’ve seen so much growth in that area over the past 5 years.” We’re really excited to have Brant onboard as the company’s newest franchise owner. His energy, drive, and prior experience prepare him greatly for what’s to come. We’re looking forward to big things happening in Hendersonville, TN.” Dan Frey – Flounder and CEO, The Glass Guru Franchise Systems, Inc.
In the past several, Brant has been working hard to ramp up his business in what’s been a very challenging few weeks. While the prevailing COVID-19 pandemic has significantly limited most small businesses, as a designated essential industry, The Glass Guru remains open for business. Brant has been diligently serving the residents of Hendersonville, TN and surrounding areas with The Glass Guru’s unique array of essential glass repair & restoration services, and he’ll likely benefit from a significant amount of pent-up demand for home services, once this crisis is behind us.
