Scott Tatum

The Glass Guru welcomed the organization’s newest franchise owner in the month of April. Scott Tatum completed his initial franchise training at The Glass Guru’s company headquarters in Roseville, Calif., on April 12, 2019. Upon his return from training, Tatum is focused on completing the final steps of starting his franchise, The Glass Guru of Chattanooga, Tenn.

Tatum’s Chattanooga location is now one of three franchise locations that The Glass Guru has in Tennessee, with the other two located in Knoxville and Memphis.

“What led me to consider The Glass Guru as a business opportunity, and what ultimately drove my decision to move forward, was meeting The Glass Guru corporate team,” says Tatum. “What’s exciting me the most about opening the franchise is being my own boss.”

Tatum reflected on what he liked best about the pre-launch process.

“The face-to-face interaction (with the corporate team) was great,” says Tatum. “If I look forward two years from now, I see myself in the estimating role, with at least two installation technicians (to handle the fulfillment side of things).”

“We are really excited to see yet another franchise location in Tennessee. It’s a state that has very little barrier to entry for home service businesses, and has a business-friendly environment,” says founder and CEO Dan Frey.

In the meantime, Tatum is anxious to begin serving customers with all of their glass restoration, repair and replacement needs, according to the company. His new franchise location will serve Chattanooga and the surrounding areas.
