ACHIEVE A BETTER WORK LIFE BALANCE
They say if you love what you do, you never work a day in your life. Do you enjoy meeting and helping people? Now imagine getting paid and building a successful business doing just that. Many of our franchisee owners are also estimators for their franchise location. The Glass Guru business (at least initially).

The earnings potential is substantial and rivals that of many franchise businesses that have considerably greater capital requirements.
We have glass, window and door industry experts on our Franchise Support Team to teach our owners the important technical aspects of the business but the primary focus with our franchise owners is business development. Even with minimal technical training, our owners can begin out-marketing and out-professionalizing the competition from day-one.
Many of our owners initially do estimates for their franchise but doing the work as well for more than a brief period is not an option. Hiring a qualified glass installer (glazier) from the outset is a must so you can focus your time on business building activities. Good office personnel early on is also essential.
