Masroor Fatany, the 25-year-old president of Sears Garage Door Houston, has been named the 2012 Houston District Small Business Administration (SBA) Young Entrepreneur of the Year.
Fatany opened his Sears Garage Door Houston franchise in 2010. After one year of operation, Sears Home Services Garage Solutions recognized Fatany’s franchise as its fastest-growing location in 2010. Sears also recognizes Fatany as Home Services Garage Solutions' youngest franchise owner.
The young dealer got his small business start at 10 years old by going on service calls with his father, who had an air-conditioning business. Fatany quickly took to the tasks of diagnosing problems and offering customer service. He also worked in a family retail packaging and shipping business.
As a college student, Fatany and his father opened Unlimited Calling Inc. where they sold pre-paid Cricket Wireless products.
Fatany then graduated from Texas A&M with a bachelor’s degree in accounting and a master’s in finance. He put his degree to use for one year but then decided to launch his own business.
Fatany is also active in local business organizations such as the Greater Houston Partnership-Business Leadership Council and Texas State CPAs. Backed by the Sears name and with competitive prices on garage doors and accessories, Mr. Fatany’s business is off to a very promising start.
Sears Garage Solutions offers sales and service for garages doors and openers.
