October 31, 2017 // Franchising.com // Global Garage, one of the premier garage floor refinishing and coating franchises in North America, announced today that it has sold out the Houston Metropolitan Area. Houston is Global Garage’s fourth market sold in Texas, following Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio. The awarding of the Houston territory reflects the popularity of the Connecticut-based brand’s products and services among both commercial and residential customers.
The company’s new Houston franchisees are the father and son team of Mike and Brett Granger, who were awarded a multi-unit territory of four units and plan to commence operations before the end of the year.
In addition to the brand’s attractive economics, it was the attention to detail of the Global Garage business model and the quality of the services that drew new franchisees Michael and Brett to the concept.
“After months of considering various business opportunities, we decided to become a Global Garage franchisee because of the high quality of the franchise products and the solid organizational strength and support offered by the franchisor. In my view, Global Garage is the real deal,” says Brett. “As a Marine veteran with several years of experience in the construction trades, I know a quality product and organization when I see it. We are excited to join the franchise and are looking forward to bringing Houstonians a great product and participating in the growth of this outstanding brand.”
“Expanding to Houston is a huge accomplishment for Global Garage,” says John Antolini, CEO of Global Garage. “We’re excited to welcome the Grangers to the Global Garage family, and intend to expand even further throughout North America in 2018 and beyond.”
Global Garage’s franchisees offer complete garage and concrete finishing solutions, from custom, industrial-strength concrete floor coatings to an exclusive offering of top-of-the-line, powder-coated wood cabinets. Along with its proprietary polyaspartic and epoxy floor coating, Global Garage’s menu of services includes high-quality custom cabinets and storage solutions for the garage.
The brand draws demand from both large commercial partners (who need custom durable concrete coatings for their restaurants, stores, or warehouses) and residential customers looking to customize their basements, driveways, garages, patios, and pool sides. Garage makeovers, along with custom concrete coatings for basements and garages - all foundations of Global Garage’s brand - have been growing in popularity and top many experts’ lists of anticipated trends for 2018.
Founded in 2006, Global Garage is owned by franchise veteran John Antolini. Global Garage is currently evaluating applications from experienced service operators seeking territories in major markets across the United States and internationally. The concept has partnered with New York City-based Oakscale as its exclusive franchise development team. The new Houston franchisees worked with Oakscale’s General Manager Joshua Kovacs.
Oakscale is a full-service franchise development company. That partners with select emerging franchise concepts to drive exceptional system growth.
