Facts About SGO

Celebrating nearly 30 years in franchising - SGO Designer Glass is in the business of working with entrepreneurs to "Design a New Life"!

We are a full service architectural art glass business with nearly 300 locations in 37 countries around the world. We provide our B2B and residential clients with a full array of custom decorative art glass. We are the only business of our kind in the world & you may have seen our work on TV programs, in many residences, places of worship and commercial establishments. If you have ever wondered where that beautiful decorative glass you are looking at came from - chances are it came from an SGO franchise location!

Questions and Answers

What kind of business background do I need?

Successful SGO owners come from all walks of life. Some have extensive business backgrounds, some have served in the military, and some have never run a business before. If you work well with people, and are passionate about building a business that is both financially rewarding and provides time to enjoy the fruits of your hard work, SGO Designer Glass could be for you.

What will I be doing

The key to success in your SGO Designer Glass franchise is to properly manage and market your business. Our aim is to become the decorative glass resource for every market that we serve providing other business owners, residential buyers and religious groups with their one stop source for decorative glass. We'll teach you how to properly recruit, train, and motivate good employees, who are the key to your success.

We have an in-house appointment setting program available for our franchisees. You have the option of having all of your business to business appointments set for you by our support team. We set the appointment, you show up and build the relationship! Many of our franchisees love building their designer, architect, window, kitchen, bath, glass, and other showroom relationships through our ‘satellite appointment setting service’. This program is great for the franchisee who loves creating new relationships for their business, but hates to cold call.
