January 20, 2009 // Franchising.com // Montoursville, Pa. – The Glass Doctor® of Lycoming County franchise owned by Mike Snauffer and Nadine Forney is now open and ready to "fix your panes!" Glass Doctor of Lycoming County offers mobile residential, automotive, and commercial glass services to Williamsport and the greater Lycoming County area. The showroom and shop is open 7:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. – noon Saturday. Also 24-hour emergency service is available.
"We're pleased to be a part of Glass Doctor, we know it will help us quickly grow our business," Snauffer said. "Williamsport needs a one-stop shop for all glass repair and replacement services, from windows and windshields to storefronts and entry doors."
Upon purchasing the Glass Doctor franchise last October, Snauffer attended the most indepth training in the glass services industry, a 10-day training course on the latest glass repair technology, customer service techniques and marketing methods held at the Glass Doctor University Training Center in Waco, Texas.
"Glass Doctor is a premier choice for glass repair and replacement," said Mark Dawson, president of Glass Doctor. "We're delighted Mike and his team have joined our franchise team, and we believe their business will be successful because we all operate under the same core values."
