Who We Are & What We Do
Optic-Kleer® was formed in 1991 and became a franchise in 2003. We have franchises available across the United States with offices in both the United States and UK where our sister company Optic-Kleer Limited also offers franchises.
Our specialization includes Windshield Repair, Windshield Replacement, Windshield Calibration, as well as Headlight Restoration. Our work is primarily performed on a mobile basis and is carried out at our customer’s location, but may also be carried out at one of our fixed locations.
The Optic-Kleer® License
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 91% of your gross revenue. You will be supported by us with a personalized company’s website, social media marketing, tooling, uniform, 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!
