Align with an Industry Leader
The Glass Guru is the world’s leading franchise for glass restoration, repair and replacement. Our cutting-edge and proprietary restoration services provide property owners with an environmentally friendly way to restore foggy windows, scratched, or water-stained glass for a fraction of the cost of replacement. In addition to our unique restoration services, our franchise locations offer a diversified bundle of traditional new and replacement products such as flat and specialty glass, windows and doors, shower enclosures, mirrors and screens. We also offer a variety of specialty products such as in-glass pet doors, mirror frames, and even automatic sliding door openers.
A Business Model That Works for You
Our owners come from all walks-of-life, and rarely have any glass industry experience prior to The Glass Guru. Typically, our franchise owners have experience in sales, marketing, and/or management, although this is not a requirement. Our ideal franchise candidates have an understanding of the importance of marketing and networking, and are comfortable recruiting, developing and managing great employees.
The Glass Guru is a proven model, with a world-class support structure that allows our franchise owners to rapidly deploy their franchise operations, with consistent and meaningful assistance from pre-launch through every growth stage of the business. Our customer base has few limitations… every owner of real property (residential or commercial) either does, or will eventually need our services! Best of all, several of our in-demand products and services have little to no competition in most markets.Our franchise owners have the benefit of a relatively low fixed-cost structure, and little to no inventory requirements. Staffing is minimal, yet infinitely scalable, allowing our owners to launch quickly with minimal overhead and scale up over time.
Our franchise fees start at just $15,000, and most locations can be started with under $50,000 in liquid capital. Fixed costs like vehicles and physical locations are also scalable, and directly proportionate with the growth of the business over time.
