Converting your Glass Repair and Installation Business
Reframe Your Future
When you first launched your business, you had an expectation of what that would look like: you’d probably be making a comfortable living for yourself and your family and have plenty of employees to handle projects and phone calls so you could take time off when you wanted to. But now you’ve worked hard your whole career, you’ve put in the time, you’ve built a business — why haven’t you been able to reach those goals?
The glass repair industry, whether it’s auto glass or glass in a home or business, remains a necessity-based business because glass is everywhere. And Glass Doctor® provides a unique opportunity for you to continue to independently own and operate your glass repair and installation business while tapping into a wealth of resources from our national franchise system.
Is Small Business Franchise Conversion Right for You?
Entrepreneurs usually choose to open a business in an industry they’re passionate about or have experience with. The startup process can be exhilarating, but many owners aren’t prepared to deal with tasks they might be less familiar with, such as marketing, inventory, payroll, and more.
Even though opening your own glass repair and installation business may have been incredibly fulfilling, it can be difficult to continue to build and maintain it all on your own.
Here are some challenges that many solopreneurs face:
- Building a well-informed business plan
- Establishing a customer base from scratch
- Trying to do it all (marketing, sales, business systems, and more)
- Achieving work-life balance
- Managing the business reputation
- Finding and retaining good employees
- Maintaining a strong digital presence
These struggles are some of the key reasons why many people choose the path of small business franchise conversion. An established franchisor like Glass Doctor can take the weight off your shoulders when you roll your business into one of these outstanding franchise opportunities.
Is your glass repair and installation business delivering to your expectations?
These are the five outcomes of owning a business. How many is your glass business delivering for you?
- Generating the income to support what you want to be doing
- Providing for a quality lifestyle
- Creating wealth
- Giving you equity – a valuable business
- Eliminating all negative debt
What’s most important to you, your family and your glass repair and installation business?

A Code of Values to Work and Live By
