Glass, Door, and Window Franchise Expands in Florida
June 01, 2021 // Franchising.com // Plano, TX - The Glass Guru added another location in the booming state of Florida. Franchise Owner Marcos Calvert Barba completed his initial franchise training after spending the week with seasoned franchise owner Erik Hilger at his Charleston, SC location back in April 2021.
Marcos comes to The Glass Guru with a long history as a savvy business person and entrepreneur. Marcos is experienced in the hospitality industry, having owned his own bar. He also previously owned an environmental company specializing in hazardous waste. He had an extensive tenor with Safety-Kleen, the largest re-refiner of used oil and provider of parts cleaning services in North America. He worked with Safety-Kleen opening branches in Mexico, became a Branch Manager, and eventually a Project Manager for the company. Marcos also has experience in the Payroll & HR services industry.
“What led me to considering The Glass Guru as a franchise opportunity was the growth of this industry. I’ve always liked anything that has to do with home improvement, as well as the desire to have economic independence, and more time with my family. I’m really excited about the challenge of this fresh-start, making my own mark on this industry, and building a business exactly the way I want it to be.”
The entire leadership team at The Glass Guru is bullish on their expectations for Marcos Calvert Barba, and the Orlando market. The Company now has two locations in the Florida metro. Marcos already has plans to grow the business and make the same kinds of transitions many of The Glass Guru’s established owners have. “In two years the business should be stable with an experienced staff that will allow me to move out of the field and into that full-time strategic and leadership role more.” says Calvert Barba.
