December 20, 2007 // Franchising.com // WACO, Texas – Entrepreneur magazine listed Glass Doctor No. 318 in its 2008 "Franchise 500" list, as published in the January 2008 issue.
Glass Doctor is the nation's largest full-service glass provider, serving the residential, automotive and commercial glass repair and replacement markets at more than 365 locations.
"It's a great honor for the entire Glass Doctor franchise team to be in this elite group," President Mark Dawson said. "We represent more than 155 active franchise owners who work hard to deliver the highest quality service possible to our customers. It's rewarding that their efforts over the past year have been recognized by Entrepreneur magazine."
This year Entrepreneur magazine also ranked Glass Doctor No. 86 in its list of Top 100 Home-Based Franchises. Glass Doctor trains and motivates franchisees to "get to the next level" by outgrowing the home and opening a shop, and then by outgrowing the shop and opening a storefront.
In 2007 Glass Doctor opened more than 20 new shop locations, including five in Colorado alone. More than 15 locations are scheduled to open in early 2008.
"We believe customers are looking for a locally owned, one-stop glass shop that can offer professional and timely service," Dawson said. "Whether you need a window repair, a windshield replacement, or a storefront restoration, you can call Glass Doctor."
Franchise territories are still available in major U.S. markets, including Buffalo, Cincinnati, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, San Jose, Washington D.C., and Wichita. Glass Doctor also plans to open franchise territory in Canada in 2008.
