A Winning Concept
The Glass Guru is the world leader in glass restoration, repair, and replacement. Our cutting-edge window restoration services, provides property owners with an environmentally-friendly way to restore foggy windows, at about half the cost of traditional replacement. In addition to restoration services, our franchise locations offer and extensive array of replacement glass products, as well as window and entry door replacements. The Glass Guru provides franchise owners with a winning concept, allowing us to become the fastest growing company in the glass, window, and door industry.
A Recession-Proof Business Model That Works for You
Since 2007, The Glass Guru has grown to over 87 franchises in North America. One of the attributes of the company’s rapid growth has been the consistency of the real estate “maintenance” spending. From 2001 through 2011, home improvement activity continued to weaken, while maintenance spending remained steady, even seeing an uptick in 2007*. Our franchisees have quickly realized that even when the economy softens, property owners will still expeditiously replace glass when it’s required. Every home has windows, doors, screens, mirrors and shower enclosures. As these critical home components age, fail, and break over time, every homeowner needs to have someone to call.
Couple those consistent spending levels in real-estate maintenance with the bright outlook forecast for the home-improvement front over the next several years, and you have a formula for success. Demand for windows and doors in the U.S. are forecast to rise 9.3% per year over the next several years.**
