Why Gotcha Covered?
Look around and you will see windows everywhere. Every home and every business has windows that need to be covered. This $20 billion industry is largely unbranded. Here’s some of the reasons we think it’s the best opportunity you’ve never heard of:

  • Fragmented industry – the largest retailer has 3% market share, and the rest is mostly small, independent dealers that lack buying power, marketing sophistication or technology
  • Simple business requires no design experience
  • Lifestyle business, 9 to 5 with flexibility for work/life balance
  • Regardless of the economy, windows always need to be covered
  • Low startup cost – high income potential
  • Cash flow friendly with no inventory or aging receivables (customers pay before ordering)
  • High Gross Margins on Sales Contracts (Over 50%)
  • High Sales Contracts Average Amounts ($4,000+)
  • High Appointment Closing Ratios (Over 50%)
  • High Customer Referral Rate
  • Large Marketing Territories
  • Flat-fee Royalty with low initial investment

Ideal Franchise Candidates:
