Gotcha Covered®, the homed-based, window fashion franchise,
has moved into a new national headquarters facilities, tripling
the size of their previous facility.
The move was prompted by significant increased demand for the company's
franchise program after it was recognized by Entrepreneur's Franchise
500® ranking it #2 in their category of Windows & Floors
and #12 in Entrepreneur's Top 20 New Franchises Category.
"It's amazing the amount of increased interest that was derived
from this recognition by the 25th Annual Franchise 500," comments,
Mike Rose, General Manger and co-founder of "Gotcha Covered."
Since entering the franchise arena in 1999, "Gotcha Covered"
has added 100 franchised locations, making it one of the fastest
growing franchise start-ups in the country. They are now in twenty
four states and project entering the rest of the U.S. states within
the next year.
A featured cover story in April's Draperies & Window Coverings
Magazine is also being credited for an increase in franchise activity
according to Rose. "We're absolutely thrilled to have our peers
recognize our success in this competitive industry. A lot of the
credit however, must be given to the fast start most of our franchisees
have achieved in sales volume since graduating from our training
Training and ongoing company support is featured in the "Gotcha
Covered" system. The company has hired career window treatment
professionals to train the new franchisees on how to handle each
and every potential sales opportunity.
The first two weeks of franchisees formal training is completed
in the company's new training facility. Upon a franchisees graduation,
a business development manager is assigned to each of the new graduates
for an extended care and training program. "We contact them
every single business day during the next 16 weeks," states
Rose. "We want to make sure they have every opportunity available
to achieve their financial goals and when they do, we both win."
