About Gotcha Covered
Gotcha Covered is a business that revolves around window treatments — from motorized blinds to allowing the perfect amount of natural sunlight to enter a room for maximum beautification, Gotcha Covered has dozens of options for homeowners.
We're a smart choice for potential franchise business entrepreneurs because the overhead is low, and you can run this business how you want to — with an experienced team of professionals, or just by yourself as a one-man operation.
Values & History
Founded in 1991, the company has been franchising since 2001. The reason it has lasted for 29 years is because of a few simple, core values. The first is to maintain a state-of-the-art concept so that when new technological innovations hit the marketplace, we sell them. We have everything that you can do to a window in terms of shades, blinds, and shutters, including control from phone apps and remote control.
But that's just where we get started. We even sell custom bedroom sets to help our customers create the perfect setting for themselves.
Another core value is that our franchisees don't have to be fashion or design consultants themselves. By putting the entrepreneurs in a position to focus on running the business aspects of their window treatment company, we keep the formula simple and the process easy to understand and master.
We also ensure that everything we have available to the customer is classy but affordable. We seek out the highest possible profit margins for our wares.
Close to three decades of high-level performance have situated us at #324 in the Franchise 500. It's an important list to be put on, and we've accomplished it despite the fact that nobody grows up thinking they want a career in window treatments. We change the minds of savvy entrepreneurs who check us out.
Think about how many potential customers in your region might like to upgrade something about even one window in their house or business either for aesthetic improvement, technological upgrade, or perhaps the most important aspect people talk about these days — energy efficiency. Customers are unlimited and since the cost of the business itself is low and margins are high, our business owners usually win in the category of surpassing their initial expectations.
Purchasing a Gotcha Covered Franchise
Welcome to the Best Opportunity You've Never Thought Of!
This is a wonderful situation for self-starters who love to make their own schedules and do things their own way. While the home office provides what you'll need from day one — from training, to the full lineup of our various product lines, you will control your day.
That will typically be split between making appointments with clients and doing administrative work from home or wherever you choose to do it from. You will not have to install anything yourself. You solve problems with the customer and provide solutions, and then you'll order what's needed and an installation staff will arrive on the appointment date to put everything together.
You don't need to stock inventory, learn installation techniques, or even be a top-flight designer. You just need to meet with your clients, hear their stories, and show them the range of solutions. Once you close the sale, you can talk to the proper vendors or order directly from the company's warehouse and book the installation date. If that sounds fun and even easy, well, that is why so many people have chosen to become Gotcha Covered franchise owners. Nobody dreams of becoming a window solutions expert as a child. But because of our unique business opportunity, Gotcha Covered could be the dream that you discover as an adult.
Ideal Candidate & Qualifications
The primary candidates we look for are outgoing go-getters who don't need daily supervision. If you aren't afraid of making contacts or can bring on someone to your venture to be your primary "face of the company" to make solid leads into satisfied customers, then you can do this business.
It takes a minimum of previous experience as you won't have to worry about brick and mortar retail issues like inventory management, store rent, and related expenses, and standing around hoping for customers.
As a result, our best candidates are happy, energetic folk who enjoy what they do and love the full control of their schedules and the variety of opportunities as every customer, and therefore every single day, is different from the last or the next.
We also encourage couples who are looking for a high-quality business they can run together. If you seek a family business that everyone can participate in and thrive, look no further.
Training & Support
We provide a great deal of information during our 80-hour introduction to our business. By the time you finish that, you will be well-versed in how to operate a successful Gotcha Covered franchise. But the end of the classroom experience is just where we get started. Considering every franchisee will be representing us, with both the customers in your region and with our established vendor relationships, we want to make sure that you are confident and have whatever you need to win in every scenario you encounter. You'll always have access to veterans at the central office. On our website you'll see video testimonials from many of our franchisees. They love being a part of Gotcha Covered because we make no false promises. We do our best to encourage your franchise's growth and development.
