The Glass Guru Named a 2023 Top Low-Cost Franchise by Franchise Business Review

Independent Research Data Shows Franchisees Are Highly Satisfied with Their Investment in The Glass Guru

Plano, TX – The Glass Guru was identified by an independent franchise research firm, Franchise Business Review, as a 2023 Top Low-Cost Franchise.

With record numbers in 2020 and continued success since The Glass Guru is regularly featured as a top low-cost franchise. Owners are in business for themselves, but not by themselves. The strength and resources of a national brand behind our owners create a successful business model. The Glass Guru places an importance on recognition received over the years by FBR, as all recognition from FBR begins with an independent survey of actual franchise owners in the business. 

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 and quarterly reports throughout the year that rank the top franchises in specific sectors.

With nearly 12,000 franchisees representing an array of low-cost brands participating in Franchise Business Review’s franchisee satisfaction survey, The Glass Guru landed as a top low-cost franchise. Being on this list means our brand is the best low-cost franchise to buy with high franchisee satisfaction and an investment of under $100,000. That makes The Glass Guru an easy investment option. 

“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 several 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 12% higher than our industry benchmark, making them all excellent options for entrepreneurs considering franchise ownership.” 

We take winning award after award from Franchise Business Review seriously. Our model is set up for your success, from training, marketing, technology and coaching. The Glass Guru supports you and your wins. Going in with a better financial picture in such a big investment is key. That is why we are always striving to remain a top low-cost franchise.
