This Doctor can fix your PANE!

October 02, 2012

When Brian King became interested in opening a glass company to add to his construction company, he looked to long time advisor Peggy Hodges for assistance in finding just the right fit.

Brian King is a hands-on kind of guy.  He has owned a construction company in Brady for the past 15 years.  During the past 5+ years, he has visited many times with Angelo State University Small Business Development Specialist Peggy Rosser. 

During their most recent visit, Brian expressed an interest in adding a glass company to his construction business.  He began researching what might be available and started a conversation with a franchisor, Glass Doctor from the Waco area.    While researching this opportunity, Brian once again relied on assistance from the SBDC.  “SBDC has helped in many ways over the last several years as well as helping discuss several business ideas,” Brian said.

Brian drove to Waco to visit with the management team and after that visit, he knew that this was a good fit. “We found a sound business model to build on that made sense to my family and community.” Glass Doctor offers commercial, residential and auto glass services.

Brian was able to hire four employees, including himself, and that payroll contributes to the economic health of Brady, Texas.
