Windshield Repair Company Owner Finds Silver
Lining in Down Economy
December 14, 2009
Many might tend to focus on the negative in a recession like this
one, but not Dave Casey, owner of SuperGlass Windshield Repair in
Orlando, Fla. Casey notes that the company jumped in its rankings
on the Franchise 500® list for the year, and points out this
might just be a benefit of layoffs in other industry sectors.
As a company, other peoples misfortunes are becoming
our fortune, he says. Some of those [whove been
laid off] from other fields are bringing a lot of sharp talent to
Im seeing a lot of quality personnel
being infused into the windshield repair business.
He adds, A lot of companies have moved backwards this year,
and weve had some decent growth and remain stable.
SuperGlass moved up the 2009 Franchise 500® list to No. 289up
ten spots from the previous years rankings. SuperGlass also
was recognized on the low-cost franchise list with a rank of No.
62, and top home-based franchises, with a rank of No. 80. The list
was published last January in Entrepreneur magazine, and
the 2010 rankings are expected soon.
