National Accounts Aid Franchisees’ Bottom Line

National Accounts Aid Franchisees’ Bottom Line

NOVUS Glass has a simple formula for success. They believe in providing a high-quality product to customers, and a high level of support to their franchisees. NOVUS, Latin for “new” or “innovative,” began franchising in 1985 and has been the industry’s leader in research & development. So, whether a windshield needs repair or replacement, NOVUS franchisees have the training, technology, and expertise to do the job.

Franchisees in the NOVUS system will tell you that the reputation of the NOVUS name, along with a well-planned marketing and advertising program, drives business to their doors – which is a big draw to those considering ownership of a NOVUS franchise. Yet there is another way the corporate office drives business to their franchisees – National Accounts.

Scott Alphin, National Sales Manager, says NOVUS has recently added U-Haul to their National Accounts list. U-Haul, which is also a franchised business, has about 140 repair facilities in the U.S. This new relationship means that franchisees will get additional business by repairing and replacing windshields infleet vehicles through this preferred vendor partnership.

“These preferred vendor partnerships,” says Alphin, “can add to a franchisee’s bottom line. We have national accounts and fleet partnerships with a number of businesses. In addition to U-Haul, we have partnerships with FedEx, and with cities, such as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We service a number of governments vehicles, including Florida state vehicles, and work with logistic companies like ProTrans Inc.”

National Accounts typically cover a large area and many vehicles, more than can be covered by a single franchisee. Therefore, they are assigned by the franchisor to various franchisees in the system, depending on location. National accounts benefit franchises, because such accounts can result in immediate revenues, without the wait for the results of marketing efforts.

NOVUS Glass has been repairing windshields for over 45 years, providing high-quality, fully guaranteed windshield and auto glass replacement and other diversified services. For someone interested in business ownership, this opportunity offers a great track record. They currently have about 2,030 locations in 25 countries, 240 just in the US.
