Access Garage Doors Hits a Home Run With New Kentucky Franchise

Louisville location

Brand Hits Growth Out of the Park while Maintaining Low Rates for Franchisees

LOUISVILLE, Ky. – (March 18th, 2024) – Access Garage Doors, a leading provider of garage door repair, replacement, and installation services, proudly announces its latest franchise in Louisville, Kentucky. With the home run of a new franchise location awarded, the brand continues its strategic and rapid growth across the nation. The new franchise, owned and operated by Bryant Layman, will expand Access Garage Doors’ quality across the Bluegrass State.

Access Garage Doors fortifies its presence in the South as the Louisville location marks the second new shop for Access Garage Doors in 2024 and the sixth in the last year. With Bryant Layman at the helm, the newest addition to the Access family is sure to be a grand slam, bringing superior service and craftsmanship to the Louisville area and beyond.

“Bryant embodies the spirit of a Louisville Slugger for Access Garage Doors,” said Jesse Cox, CEO of Access Garage Doors. “With his drive and ambition and our structured business model, I have full confidence in his ability to replicate success beyond a single location. Our team is thrilled to support Bryant as he builds an empire for himself and his family.”

“My family and I feel blessed to be part of the Access team and are excited for the future as we contribute to the company’s growth and realize our dreams,” Layman said.

Despite the growth, Access Garage Doors has maintained its ongoing rates for nearly five years with no increases on the horizon. It’s a move that creates a profitable model that benefits both franchisor and franchisee for the long haul.

“In the franchise world, it’s common for systems to increase their ongoing rates year after year. However, we believe a key factor attracting entrepreneurs to our program is our commitment to consistent affordability,” said David Neal, Executive Officer.

As Access Garage Doors continues to expand and maintain its ongoing rates, the corporate team remains dedicated to investing in the franchisee program. The program helps address the country’s demand for skilled labor. The U.S. Census Bureau reports a lack of skilled labor could leave millions of unfilled jobs by 2030. With Access Garage Door’s extensive training, more workers can be trained in these needed skills.

“Our program and franchises are tailored for individuals seeking a rewarding technical career,” said Chris Evans, Executive Director of Operations. “We leverage extensive resources, including cutting-edge technology, to provide efficient and competent training opportunities.”
