As the owner of a fix/flips and remodels construction company, Zach Spicer knows firsthand that glass is an incredibly popular material in interior design. From elaborate showers, to dramatic staircases, to indulgent walk-in closets, glass turns everyday living areas into extraordinary spaces.

But getting someone to do the work can be next to impossible. “There is a major lack of well-known glass companies out there that can handle interior glass jobs like shower doors, glass walls, wine rooms, railings and commercial projects,” he says. And that’s exactly why he invested in Gatsby Glass. “There is so much work out there and the competitors don’t even answer the phone when customers call for a quote. Investing in a franchise that offers these services and has all the systems and processes in place was a no-brainer for me,” he says.

Spicer believes that the home services industry is completely undervalued in the eyes of other business owners. “It’s not shiny and sexy, but it can generate some serious income,” he says.

An Easy Decision

Besides being a perfect complement to his business, Spicer was all-in on Gatsby Glass because of its leadership team and parent company. “HorsePower Brands is a beast and there is nobody else out there who’s better,” he says. At press time, Spicer was just about to open Gatsby Glass of Southeast Denver. With interest rates on the rise and the threat of a recession looming, Spicer believes that more people will shift from buying new homes to remodeling existing ones. “This is huge because the two major rooms people upgrade are bathrooms and kitchens,” he says. “When you tell people you own an interior glass company, their eyes light up. Everybody wants a new glass shower door. Glass has become more and more popular in interior design in both residential and commercial projects.”

Gatsby’s scope of work is only limited by the imagination. Commercial clients offer vast possibilities. From floor-to-ceiling glass office walls to large-scale wine cellar doors, and jobs for restaurants, medical facilities, and more, glass is everywhere.

Gatsby Glass franchise owners don’t have expensive overhead such as inventory or elaborate showrooms. Instead, they use a digital tool that creates 3-D renderings and has a virtual showroom. Customers can pick out glass and hardware and can visualize the finished project. “Seeing a concept come to life on the screen gives that HGTV and Pinterest Board experience that customers love,” says franchise development manager Jacob Hanika. “It’s that wow factor that wins clients over.”
