Who We Are & What We Do
Optic-Kleer® was formed in 1991 and became a franchise in 2003. We have employment positions, franchises and Owner-Operator positions with offices in both the United States and UK.
Our specialization includes Windshield Repair, Windshield Replacement, Windshield Calibration, as well as Glass Coatings and Headlight Restoration. Our work is primarily performed on a mobile basis and is carried out at our customer’s location but can we also conduct business at our fixed locations.
The Owner-Operator Position at Optic-Kleer®
This is a position similar to a franchise. If your application is approved, you will be equipped, trained, certified and become an independent part of our company. You will carry out all our services in an agreed exclusive area while retaining 90% of your gross revenue. You will be supported by us with a personalized company’s website, social media marketing, technical software, insurance support, and advertising allowing you to focus on what’s MOST important – your customers.
Successful applicants will need to possess mechanical skills, have a friendly persona and be very presentable. Lack of experience isn’t a problem as we have a preference to train new techs from scratch in order that they do things the Optic-Kleer® way, with safety in mind. If you come to us with experience, you’ll still be required to complete the Optic-Kleer® certification program to understand company policies and practices as well as to ensure uniformity.
By operating under our brand and trade names, you’ll be benefiting from our goodwill, our experience, our reviews, and our brand recognition. This will make it easier for you to build customer trust, confidence, and ultimately generate substantial sales! Our security deposit is fully refundable as long as certain criteria are met. Therefore the position of Owner-Operator effectively requires zero long term investment.
How an Owner-Operator position works
An Optic-Kleer® Owner-Operator provides you with a franchise position within our company along with a no-cost-to-extend five-year contract. A fully refundable security deposit of $15,995 is required for the equipment, tooling, uniforms, marketing literature, website, certified training, and travel/accommodation expenses throughout training . This amount will be repaid in full after a satisfactory five-year period.
You will also need a vehicle or trailer capable of transporting glass to your customer’s location. A van, truck, or trailer would be acceptable.
The length of our specialist training is two consecutive weeks from Monday to Friday. It will be conducted at our Northlake, Texas location and on occasion at our customer’s location. Again, your travel and accommodation expenses are included in your deposit. We want to be sure there are no hidden costs when joining our team!
On the Friday of the second week, graduation ceremonies and presentations will be held. Along with technical training and equipping you with the very best tooling available in the industry today, we will also train you in marketing, software and all things AutoGlass.
Earning Potential at Optic-Kleer®
With the training support and back-up we provide, we anticipate you to generate between $500 and $1400 of business per day, with profit around the 75% mark, depending on the type of services provided. Having said that, you have the freedom to create your own work schedule.
Initially, even our entry level owner operators can easily bring in $500+ per day with limited work orders. Those who excel will far exceed this estimate. Our higher performing technicians are generating $15,000 in monthly sales within their first month or two on the job. We want you to get there too!
We know it’s important to start making money right away. Our marketing efforts make sure you’re able to start accepting work immediately after training.
Working with Insurance Companies
Most applicants are curious whether they can carry out auto glass services for insurance companies. The answer is yes! We set you up as a repairer for all the auto insurance companies and you will be paid directly for the work you perform.
