Glass Guru Grows

June 16, 2009

Glass and window restoration and replacement company, The Glass Guru, headquartered in Roseville, Calif., has launched franchises in California, Oregon, Texas and Florida. 

In April, husband and wife Chuck and Brenda Vecchiarelli opened The Glass Guru of Stockton, Calif. Brenda Vecchiarelli's brother Dennis Freeman, opened The Glass Guru of Modesto in the neighboring territory to the south, giving the company 16 locations in California now.

Also in April, Dale Cook of Lake Oswego, Ore., launched The Glass Guru of Portland Westside, becoming the first location operating in the greater Portland market. Cook worked in remodeling and real estate and saw potential in that area for company's moisture removal services for failed insulating units.

In May and June, The Glass Guru added its first locations in Texas and Florida.  Brothers Ted and Aaron Halladay opened The Glass Guru of Frisco, Tex.  Rick Hey opened The Glass Guru of Jacksonville. Hey worked in specialized printing services for 16 years.

The Glass Guru has added 31 active locations in 12 states in just over two years since it began offering franchises.  "It's our goal to have 350 locations operating by 2015," says Dan Frey, CEO. "We have a way to go but the market and the demand is definitely there."
