A STRAIGHTFORWARD DISCOVERY AND EVALUATION PROCESS
Over the years, we’ve helped thousands of individuals take a closer look at The Glass Guru Franchise opportunity. We’ve learned what franchise candidates find important when looking closely at The Glass Guru, and we’ve streamlined our franchise discovery into a proven process that works!
At The Glass Guru, we do not consider franchise recruiting a “sales” process. Instead, we are look at ourselves as facilitators, assisting franchise candidates in taking a deep and unencumbered look at our business model. Buying a franchise is a big decision. Our franchise consultants are your tour guides, helping you navigate the discovery process in an efficient and effective way, focusing on what’s important to you in your decision process.
At the same time that our team is getting candidates the information they need to look closely at our franchise opportunity, we also take the time to get to know the franchise candidate. Franchising is a form of business partnership, and it’s important that we strive to ensure the right candidates are awarded franchise territories. We’re always striving to ensure that there’s a mutually-beneficial relationship with our franchisees, and that a long-term path to profitability is apparent.

We’ll also schedule a call after you’ve had a chance to review the FDD.
VALIDATION WITH OUR FRANCHISE OWNERS
Hearing what our current franchise owners have to say is a critical part of the discovery process. Our franchise owners complete a Franchise Satisfaction Survey each year, and as part of the discovery process, we’ll give you a copy of the current survey results. In addition, many of our franchise owners love to tell their story¦ We’ll send you a list.
