CJ Bentley of Casper, Wyoming – New NOVUS Glass Franchisee
St. Paul, MN – NOVUS Glass continues to expand its Auto Glass Replacement network with the addition of its newest franchisee, CJ Bentley of Casper, Wyoming.
A history-filled location, Casper is the second-largest city in the state and played a significant part in the U.S. expansion westward. In the 1800s, hundreds of thousands of pioneers passed through the area via the Oregon, Mormon, California and Pony Express trails, on their way to the west and north.Of course, some travelers stayed in the area and the town at the trail crossroads became a destination of its own. Nicknamed “The Oil City,” Casper had several had refineries since oil was discovered in the late 1800s, and still has a cowboy culture.
This picturesque mountain town, a vacation destination for fly-fishing, hiking, biking, and viewing wildlife, has appeal to CJ and his family as all embrace ranch life. CJ and their two sons enjoy roping and are involved in youth rodeo. CJ’s wife, Stephanie, owns a Pilates studio and has been an instructor for 14 years. The couple’s daughter is active in dance. Being apart of their community is important to the Bentley family, and this played a major role in their decision to enhance their city with a NOVUS Window Replacement business.
“We did a significant amount of research before we decided on the NOVUS opportunity,” said CJ. “We saw the need for this service in our community and knew that this company provided quality that we could be proud of,” he added. CJ, who was recently the manager of a sign company, has had an extensive career in sales.
“Families like the Bentleys make up a large portion of the franchisees we have in the NOVUS network,” said Jan-Marie Hall, Franchise Development Director. “Their customers are their friends and neighbors and that creates a feeling of trust. It is one of the reasons the NOVUS brand continues to expand so rapidly.”
NOVUS currently has over 2,000 franchise locations and is the international leader in auto glass repair. Potential franchisees do not need experience in auto glass replacement but a history in business and employee managements helpful. With comprehensive, hands-on training, and the reputation as the world leader in auto glass innovation, NOVUS has the ability to help families like the Bentleys build successful businesses.
The Bentleys are excited to see their new business grow. “We think Novus will be a good fit for us,” said Stephanie, “because we will be investing our time and energy into our own business. We also want the flexibility to be with our kids, and to attend all their many events and activities. We’re a hands-on, involved family and we love it!”
