ATLANTA, GA, June 30, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Granite Transformations, a remodeling services franchise with offices and showrooms across the world, announces today its expansion into the Greater Toronto Area with the territory purchase by Wayne Lowe, Tracy Lowe and Shauna Dunn, currently owners of two Canadian locations, in Oakville, O.N. and Kitchener, O.N.
Wayne, Tracy and Shauna have been involved with Granite Transformations for more than 10 years, when they purchased the first Canadian territory in 2002. The Toronto territory includes all of the Greater Toronto area, including Etobicoke, Pickering, Thornhill and Richmond Hill.
"After being extremely successful in Oakville and Kitchener, we wanted to expand our footprint to include one or two locations in Toronto," explains Wayne Lowe, Granite Transformations' franchisee. "We love being Granite Transformations' franchisees because it offers a unique product line and allows us to make an impact in a client's home or office. Our customers happiness with their new space, be it a kitchen or bathroom, is why we keep opening new locations and expanding territories. We look forward to serving even more individuals through this expansion."
Granite Transformations offers unique product lines of Trend Stone, Trend Glass and Trend Mosaics, which are manufactured from the finest natural materials in the world. Granite Transformations countertop products are unique and feature a one-fourth inch slab of engineered stone or post-consumer recycled glass, manufactured to be both beautiful and highly durable, as well as scratch and stain resistance. The thinner material can be installed directly on top of existing surfaces without any demolition, eliminating weeks of disturbance and inconvenience. Granite Transformations is used by homeowners, commercial and domestic interior designers, architects, builders and developers worldwide and installation typically can be completed in one to three days.
