Techna Glass Franchise Information
Techna Glass is a franchise for a business providing windshield repair and replacement.
It was founded in 1991 and started franchising in 2004. It was founded by Troy Mason. It started because he was from a family of three decades who has worked in the glass industry. This is what helped him earn his knowledge in the industry. He realized that these glass consumers needed him to innovate products and services offered in the industry.
Their first store was opened in Salt Lake City and that location became the catalyst to their 14 main retail locations. They started as a full service shop for glass and other products related to glass. It was in 1997 that they began opening two locations in a year. It was in 1996 that they opened their first distribution warehouse. They currently have five locations in the United States and 14 locations that are owned and operated by the company.
