Today on the Franchising 101 podcast we are talking with one of our 600+ franchise partners. Joining the show is Paul Linenberg, President of Gotcha Covered. Gotcha Covered is a franchise that offers custom window treatments for homes and businesses. The franchise model is home-based, with low overhead, investment, and quick ramp-up time. Paul discusses his journey into franchising and dispels the misconception that franchise owners need to be designers or handy with tools. Instead, the key to success lies in being personable, outgoing, and relationship-oriented. Listen in to learn more about their brand,their extensive support to new owners, flexible business model, and the strong culture of support and collaboration among franchise owners within the Gotcha Covered system.
